    This is the third time that my wife and I have visited Pizza Posto and it was as good as ever. We enjoyed cocktails to start followed by a pizza each and an ice cream dessert. Everything was great quality and the service was good especially as the restaurant was very busy. It's just a shame that we live 185 miles away in Preston.

    First time visiting Twenty in Edinburgh. Place looks amazing, clean and service is next to non 10/10. prompt with service and the food, the food is soo damn good. I had the Grilled leg of Lamb which just melt and the Mrs had a large chicken caesar salad which she loved, then desert she had the sticky toffy pudding and I had the Hot choco cake, so so good. good portions and value for money. Highly recommend as we’ll be going back with our friends. The services highly knowledgable and friendly. Go see for yourself don’t just take my word for it go, go experience it for yourself. It is a smart casual though we dressed up to the max as it was our 1st date night in like 5yrs 😂🤣. But they made it a lovely night to remember.🫶🏾

    My first time visiting this unique restaurant. I was following a recommendation for lunch and was not disappointed. An imposing building on the corner of High Street and George 4th bridge houses an elegant restaurant with a distinct French atmosphere and menu choices. Great value and perfectly cooked food served by professional and friendly staff. Well worth seeking out.
