We had not been to the restaurant before and being honest the initial greeting was a bit chaotic and verging on unfriendly - despite the fact that we had a booking! I think maybe we hit a pressure point of the evening. Service improved and the quality of the food was excellent.

Greater by a waiter with real arrogance. Arrived on time and had to wait 15 mins to be seated even though we had already pre-booked.

Took an additional 40 minutes before we were even offered any drinks and had to eventually call the waiter over to be served. Once we ordered and the food arrived one of the dishes was stone cold and had to be returned. The pizza and rest of the meals were okay but nothing to write home about.

The waiter served us with real arrogance and was awkward, almost questioning why we were in the restaurant. Certainly won’t be returning and would advise others not too go either. Plenty of other much better Italians in Edinburgh.

I can highly recommend Mia's lunch menu. The food was all beautifully cooked and excellent value. Staff were friendly and helpful. Full tables on a Monday lunchtime and a great atmosphere, good idea to book!

Enjoyed our evening at Mia. The place was warm and comfortable with a good atmosphere. The food was tasty, good portions and well presented. The only down point was that the hot chocolate was not hot enough for my taste.

Food nice but service needs addressed later on in night when things are winding down. Also worth checking bill as we were overcharged for drinks but this was rectified no problem after pointing this out.

Was sad that the Marinara pizza was no longer on the menu - despite it being advertised online. The waitress, although lovely, did not offer to speak to the kitchen to see whether it could be done. Maybe update the online menu to avoid disappointment!
Also the table next to us, seated after us were asked for drinks orders and served before us - not normally a biggy but when your fav pizza is off the menu it was noticeable!

Although we had booked for 7pm we had to wait until 7.30pm for a table. We were given a glass of processco as we waited. We were then sat down and asked if we wanted a drink, but we're not given any menus for another 45 mins despite asking several times. Then when we tried to order we were told we needed to wait another five minutes.
It seemed a very busy night, the waiting staff weren't sure what they were doing and we waited over 15 mins for the bill as well.

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Will definitely be back. Only criticism would be the plumbing smell from the downstairs bathroom was obvious for us dining down there but only when the door was left open, which was quite a lot - maybe a closer on the toilet door would help?

Food was amazing! Service was on point and the value was fantastic! I will definitely be returning. The only negative was that when we first arrived the restaurant seemed fairly cold, all 5 of us said the same thing when we were seated at our table but having said that once we started to eat and drink we did not notice as much.

Hogmanay dinner was from a nice menu of good choices and we picked well and the food was lovely and good portions . The service was good and friendly respite they were very busy . The restaurant upstairs is a bit tired and needs some upgrade but a nice night nevertheless.

My brother and I dined here on Saturday night at half seven our table wasn’t ready had to wait about 15mins no big deal really. We noticed there is a musty drain smell in the restaurant which was quite unpleasant the menus are printed on the inside of old vinyl record sleeves which are filthy we sat at a table right next to all the cutlery and a stairwell for the staff which led to the basement very annoying.I ordered the scallops which was a very wet dish swimming in sauce and quite tasteless my brother had the prawns which he enjoyed. We both opted for the half pizza and seafood pasta which was very tasty with a good array of seafood with some of the prawns still in there shell you can imagine the mess our fingers were in but there was no offer of a napkin water bowl or wipe very basic things you get in any restaurant. We also noticed that every diner around us after they paid there bill all received a limoncello shot a nice touch unfortunately we weren’t offered one obviously not part of the regular morning side clique it’s these little touches that I would personally never return
