Upmarket Italian on the Royal Mile. Sophisticated ambiance and superb food. Shame I was here solo. Guess I will have to come back!

People usually say the above ( with a sad shake of the head) about a famous department store in Edinburgh which was taken over by a chain. Sadly I think it’s also true of this place. We loved it as part of the Missoni Hotel,...More

Went for a birthday meal and were treated so well. The wine suggested was perfect. Lovely birthday gesture at end.The only negative is the decor, gorgeous colours and columns spoiled by horrendous mismatched canvasses on walls

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
