Review:  “Finding a delicious, hot seafood platter is a rare thing in Edinburgh but we finally found the one that left us completely satisfied. Each piece of seafood was fresh, perfectly cooked and the portion was more than reasonable. For the first time, I can truly say it was worth the money for a seafood platter. Both Burrata and Ravioli were top notch too.”

Review: “We had an absolutely delicious meal here during a visit for Edinburgh Fringe. Incredible service, food and wine and a nice, calm and classy atmosphere and decor and friendly staff. In London, burrata is being served everywhere and it typically comes on a bed of rocket with olive oil - the dish is served in a much more interesting way here! We also had the lasagne and chicken casserole, both top notch. We wish we’d had room for pudding as the tiramisu looked tempting. Well worth the short walk from the centre of town. Bellissimo!”

Review: “An absolute gem of a find. Booked for a birthday meal after stumbling across the reviews. Impeccable, friendly service and faultless food. Perfect setting. Choose the seven course menu and wasn’t disappointed. Every course brought something new. Well worth a visit to support a local business providing something a bit different to the usual steak or burger.”

Review: “Incredibly friendly service and simply delicious pasta. We came for a meal of comfort food and left happily stuffed. We had the spaghetti aglio e olio as well as the cannelloni ricotta e spinaci and a half portion of the ravioli di zucca. All were delicious and everyone was pleased with their choices. A place comfortable catering to locals and tourists- we felt welcomed and right at home.”
