Terrible - waited 10 mins for any service at all; ordered drinks and food and 20 mins later we had received NOTHING. I questioned a waitress who said she would look into it, then she returned 10 mins later to say the waiter hadn't placed our order yet ...
They don't have a children's menu or offer half portions - I had the impression of Italy as very child-friendly, so this place lets the country down badly.
Avoid! This review won't let me leave a rating of less than 1 star - if it did I would have left NONE.

lovely little cafe, however visited on tuesday evening and waited nearly an hour for food. they were busy and advised about half hour wait but an hour was too much. we waited but others left. food was ok when it arrived and the staff gave me a discount when i asked for inconvenience. i would visit again as cafe was very authentic, staff were pleasant. management please note tho dont embarass your staff by over filling the place if you cant keep up with service

This is a beautiful gem! Excellent pizza, warm environment and a special group of staff. Every meal I've had here has been brilliant.

I tend to avoid Italian restaurants because I feel like I can replicate pizza and past in my own kitchen. Not this place however, there is no way I can cook up what they served. This is the best Italian I've ever had and I highly recommend you visit.

This is my absolute favourite Italian restaurant in Edinburgh, though I only discovered it years after moving here. It somehow maintains an air of mystique, a unique quality almost as though you're an insider for knowing about it, even though it's located right in the middle of the busy Grassmarket.
The food here is top-notch, with hefty portions and low prices. They do student discounts and it's open until two in the morning, so you can come here for a stromboli after hitting the many nearby pubs.
I'm almost too jealous to review it positively, because I don't want anyone but me to come here!

THis little cafe has had a bit of a make over in the last year and has lost a little of its “old world charm” however, they do still make the best cappucino in Edinburgh, in my opinion.
Now that the work in the Grassmarket is nearly complete it will become much more pleasant to sit in their increased outside terrace space.
Inside, they usually have the Italian radio playing so you can pretend that you are in sunny italy and not in rainy Edinburgh.
Wide range of italian snacks, traditional pizza, folded over pizza and some more substantial meals. Also a good range of italian cakes and biscuits, although they have sadly stopped stocking the very traditional italian plain lemon cake which used to be my favourite with a morning cappucino.
A good spot for a coffee if you are early for your class at Dance Base and also a good spot for a bit to eat after browsing the shops in the Grassmarket.

This is my fave pizza place. They open late which is handy if your peckish after a few drinks in the many establishments available in the Grassmarket. The pizza slices come in squares and taste absolutely amazing.

Just my favourite Italian caffe`.
Coffees are delicious, imported Italian beers and wines.
All sort of food to take away available, from pizzas, to pasta, passing through calzone or little pastries.
The decoration is entirely Italian, clear reminder of the Italian busy cafes where you stop for a espresso to keep your day going…this cafe is just the opposite, a great place to relax and enjoy the italian “snack” gastronomy.
You can not leave this place without trying a slice of pizza al taglio (it’s actually a square portion of pizza margherita) which is by far the best one I have ever tried outside Italy. Do try it!
Particularly interesting is that the radio station they listen to is in …Italian!
Nice staff but no toilets unless you ask them to let you use their personal one…:S
Get a real taste of Italy!
