    With the amount of Italian restaurants in Edinburgh you could easy walk past. However, this is a very nice traditional Italian restaurant. We made a booking and the table was ready as soon as we arrived. The menu was quiet large but catered for everyone’s taste. We both had soup of the day, which was minestrone. My wife then went for a pizza, which was very tasty and I chose a tomato based risotto. Both were very nice and tasty. I would also recommend the lemon cello ice cream desert!! We did go on a Wednesday night but the place still quite busy. We also used the Tastecard which made the value for money even better, but you couldn't complain at the prices if we didn't use it. Would defiantly go back as the service as also very good. "
