The best thing about Guiliano's is the friendly and warm welcome and attentive service. Nothing seems to be too much trouble and you aren't left waiting for your food. There is a great choice of dishes, you could eat there for weeks and never get bored. It's the perfect restaurant for lunch and for supper before or after a visit to the Playhouse opposite. The pasta dishes are lovely, a great selection of tasty choices. I'm also fond of their fish dishes, especially the calamari and sea bass. The pizzas are superb for lunch, and I like the Rucola best., topped with pepper from their huge pepper grinder! To be honest I don't usually bother with their puddings - who needs one after an appetizer (yummy bruchetta or focaccia caesar) or antipasta and a main course (although they do have the famous Lucas ice cream). It's hard to be disappointed at Guiliano's, although it's not cheap.Report this
Busy "Italian", prices on the up.

There are two outlets: the one I go to is located on the top of Leith Walk, opposite the Playhouse Theatre. Decor inside is mock italian - statues, paintings of tuscany etc. However carpets etc are well worn now. If you get to sit in the newer extension out the back, it's got a tiled floor and it's very noisy. Generally it's a noisy place anyway, with birthday parties, group outings etc. Service is welcoming and generally very fast. That's probably the best thing. Starters have really gone downhill recently. Bruschetta and garlic bread were both cold on my most recent visit. Minestrone was still good though. For mains you have the usual mix of pizzas, pastas, carni, pesche, ... I dont like their pizzas - generally you'd be better going to pizza express or somewhere for real pizza bases etc. Pastas are generally good - although very expensive for what you get. My favourite is taglierieni della casa (lots of differnt stuff). Steak is ok, you can do better. Fish tends to be nice, but again, really expensive. There is a reasonable selection of wines, a really good selection of soft drinks and bottled beers. I dont think they have draught - but I could be wrong. The next problem for me is the wine prices! Just about the cheapest reasonable quality wine you can get is about £15. And thats only reasonable. Beers are pricey too but at least you know what you're getting. Desserts are only average. They tend to be prepacked frozen, with a squirt of "cream" from a can. Not good. Especially considering their cost. Overall, its poor value for money and I wont be back. However I said that before but a friend organised a bithday party there and I had to go.Report this
Friendly Italian in the heart of Leith

There's a warm welcome for everyone at this well-established Edinburgh eaterie. Italian dishes, sometimes with a twist. Desserts aren't that exciting but apart from that it's a great place for spot of lunch or a longer night out. Try, if possible to get a table in the main restaurant. If they put you in the larger dining area round the corner there's nothing much to look at.Report this
