    Loved the food - it was gorgeous. It’s such a small place, it’s hard to avoid overhearing people at other tables (if they’re particularly loud), but other than that it was fantastic.

    Ate some amazing pasta and pizza here and honestly wouldn’t have been able to tell that it was vegan. Would really recommend it to anyone for delicious Italian food whether you’re vegan or not.

    My boyfriend and I had a wonderful meal at Sora Lella for Valentine’s Day. We arrived and were enthused by the options on both the regular menu and a specific Valentines menu. We cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough and will be back.

    The food was amazing. I am not a vegan but had 3 courses with my vegetarian cousin. All courses were delicious but the dessert of cheesecakes and vanilla ice cream was the highlight. Will definitely return

    This is the best vegan italian restaurant I've been. We were visiting Edimburgh for the weekend, we tried this place on Saturday and was so good that we repeat on Sunday. Pizza boscaiola, pasta carbonara and gnocchi alla sorrentia were absolutelly stunning!

    Have eaten at Sora Lella a few times now and I’m still blown away by the incredible food and attentive service. My favourite restaurant in the whole of Edinburgh. Vegan, authentic Italian food and LGBTQ+ friendly - what’s not to love!

    Lovely meal! I had the sausage and truffle gnocchi and my wife had the creamy truffle spaghetti and we were very impressed. Good selection of gluten free pizza and pasta. We were gifted free shots on the house for my birthday. Staff were great and the atmosphere was lovely, would return!

    The best pasta I have ever had, including before I became vegan. Just absolutely delicious! My husband and I even swapped plates a few times, wish we could have ate the whole menu of dishes (if our stomachs and wallet allowed!). I’d recommend everyone and anyone who loves Italian food to visit here at least once. Our waitress was lovely and patient with us making the difficult decision of which of their many options to order. The only thing I’d like to see is more alcohol-free drink options, maybe a white and a red wine? Can’t wait to come back!

    We will definitely be back. Our meal was amazing. Highly recommend the main dishes of carbonara and spaghetti. Best vegan restaurant in Edinburgh. We were running late and the chef took our order over the phone, since the kitchen would be closed by the time we arrived. Thank you so much, and all the best for 2024!

    It was a little frustrating that we were given a small table (meant for 2 people) with a fold out chair when I had made a booking for 3 people. There were larger tables beside the window that had been given to parties of 2. It was a bit of a battle trying to eat without bumping into each other. Aside from that, the food was lovely and the staff were friendly and helpful.
