So we did get a refund for the pizza, but it was raw dough, with a very rubbery skin on the egg in the middle. No one asked if the food was ok, pretty dated interia, and over warm wine. Serving tiramassu from the bar not the kitchen wasn't good either.

Serving theatre and concert-goers to the Usher, Lyceum and Traverse as well as discerning fans of Italian cuisine this is not to be missed. The atmosphere; the welcome; the charming, attentive genuine Italian speaking staff; the excellent selection of, naturally, prosecco; the food fit for the gods and generations of caesars. - could you ask for anything more? Yes, great... More

I searched for pizza close to the hotel and the reviews were great. I want to add one to the list. Quaint Italian restaurant with great food, service and a little... More

Dropped in here for a meal as the front was very unimposing and it stated that they are a good family restaurant that had been in business for over 20 years. Got to be a good sign right. Seated quickly on a Sunday night, Wine chosen under recommendation from the waiter which was a lovely fruity red. The food was... More

A great Italian restaurant catering for everyone ! As I'm gluten free they came and talked through the menu, and how they would prepare it. Gluten free pasta and salads are separately prepared, and there is a good choice both on the main and pre- theatre menu. Pascuale and his team looked after us well despite the restaurant being really... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
