Pizza was good but pasta was overloaded with balsamic vinegar. The balsamic was mentioned on the menu but ..... Not sure it was particularly good value for money, but where else could you get Amerone wine by the glass!! Busy and loud environment.

Booked at short notice, but our 8pm table was ready and waiting. The staff were all friendly and attentive. Good service; good food - the wine maybe a bit pricy in comparison to the food? Large airy open room. Would be happy to go again.

Quick bite to eat before catching train so ate late afternoon/early evening. Restaurant quiet and staff very attentive. Starters were large and we could have shared one. Wife had a Pizza and I had pasta for mains. Both very hot and very tasty.

I had lunch with family here at the weekend. The service was good, booking was easy and the whole experience was pleasant. There's nothing to knock your socks off, but they do the UKs standard approach to Italian food better than many similar places.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
