We came without reservation but were lucky and got the table. It was busy night but our orders came in nicely spaced time. Starters were big, we always take two different ones and share but I could not finished my share. The main for me was gnocchi and my partner had one of the specials of the day. My portion... More

Cosy environment, and homely setting. Main course was beautifully cooked and very enjoyable. We both decided to have desserts, partner enjoyed blackberry cake, while I did the chocolate. Highly recommended. Do come down... More

The staff were very welcoming and the food did not disappoint. The rosemary focaccia was delicious as was the tiramisu. The serving staff were excellent and all very friendly.

Efficient, attentive, charming staff offer an a la carte and pre-theatre menu early evening. The wine was hearty, my frito misto starter might have benefited from more zucchini, but the rigatoni Asti as a main was great. I finished with a lovely Expresso accompanied by a rustic Italian brandy. Inexpensive, good Italian food and welcoming staff.

Thank kenis201

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
