I regularly visit this family run restaurant with my partner and could not recommend it enough! They have an excellent selection of home cooked pasta dishes, I've tried almost all of them and are yet to be disappointed. The portions are hearty, reasonably priced and delicious. (The stone baked pizzas are also delicious.) On my most recent visit I ordered... More

This is a Neighbourhood restaurant, small and cosy. We always go with our children and the staff are very welcoming and relaxed. Also the customers are all courteous and friendly. The highlight is the food! Amazing pizza and gorgeous pasta - Bruno the chef is fantastic. The portions are generous and delicious. Always book!

Visited at the recommendation of our friends who live just nearby. Fantastic pizza, have tried many pizza places in Edinburgh and so far this one wins. It was BYOB with a cosy and very relaxed atmosphere.

My wife an I have visited many Italian restaurants in Edinburgh and elsewhere. This is the best so far. The atmosphere is great and the staff friendly. On a warm night eating out front is just...

As darkness fell on Wednesday 10th August, myself along with thirteen friends descended upon the 'BYOB' hotspot that was Café Artista. With 8 litres of random beverages and little knowledge about what the meal would have in store, we sat down. The menu is extensive and there was not even a corkage charge on the drink- very impressive. The pizzas... More

Reluctantly left the festival burgers for pizza, pasta and lemon tart with friends. Haven't had better Italian food in the UK, and the service was sweet and beautiful l; )

Got pizza and caneloni and they were both very well cooked, tasty and authentic. It is an unassuming place but went after recommendation and it was 100% worth it.

Bruno and his team pull it off again. We had a wonderful meal last weekend. The food was brilliant and they let you bring in your own drinks ( small corkage ). The service was first class and of course you get the eclectic atmosphere for free. Definitely one to visit and just a 20 minute walk from the centre.
