Met all our expectations!
The true taste of Italy in the Locanda de Gusti transformed the view of the Edinburgh streets outside to the Napoli coastline with Mount Vesuvius simmering on the other side of the Bay. The food was fresh and very tasty the atmosphere of the restaurant transferred you in an instant to Italy, the staff made you so welcome. This is what you want from a first class Italian restaurant and you certainly have it in the Locanda de Gusti.
Magnificent dining experience from start to finish. Authentic Italian with excellent chef and waiting staff. A very warm experience awaits for those who visit. We have booked another dinner next month and already cannot wait to return.
Outstanding service and really good fresh food. A wonderful place to visit. Wine choice is excellent too and great value. I will be returning.
Best place to eat in Edinburgh! Great food, friendly service, homely atmosphere!
Always love coming here. Tremendous place. Food always excellent and service is so welcoming but never over pushy.
The staff were excellent. Very warm and friendly with great service. A genuine Italian experience. Only negative is that the music was a bit loud on arrival.
My fourth visit and up to its usual high standard both from quality of food and service. Staff always manage to make me smile and food is excellent.
Great food, excellent and friendly service
Superb food as always! Such a treat to have a meal at this amazing restaurant!
Great authentic Italian food with light pasta as it should be. Service was excellent with singing and cheerfulness! A fun dinner with great food.
Superb meal and service. Very tasty starters and mains, with lovely wine.
I've been here twice and it's quickly become my favorite restaurant in Edinburgh. The food and drink are exquisite, but it's the friendly staff and the resulting atmosphere that make you feel like you've just taken a mini vacation in Italy. Thank you!
Outstanding food and wonderful, attentive, intelligent service with a sense of humour. Slightly expensive overall, but worth it for a special occasion.
Starters were lovely especially mozzarella bursts,mains didn't quite feel it's no.1 Italian restaurant in the city,and desserts were amazing,so instead of 5/5 I'll give this place a fair 4 in a 5points scale. Quite small and noisy spot as well so if U like privacy with your meal,this'd not the place to go to.
Fantastic place up beat. So much energy in the place.
Excellent food and friendly service
Best than expected
Excellent food and service. It would be good to see a £20 bottle of wine on the list.
Best Italian restaurant in Scotland! By far ....
A long time favourite place to eat; never fails to deliver.
Brilliant food, atmosphere and service! Loved the personalities of the staff and how released the atmosphere was!
Fantastic night with my partner, great atmosphere, staff made everyone feel so welcome. Food was great, very authentic! Would come back again, already told everyone at my work about it and they will be trying it out soon!
Yet another wonderful evening.
Busy, happy diners at 7pm on a Tuesday! Always great food with great staff. See you again soon!
