I decided to bring my partner here with the hope of showing him just how good fully vegan food can be. I was hugely disappointed.

Good atmosphere, lighting, friendly staff but unfortunately let down by the food. The Bruschetta tomato was delicious. For the mains, my partner had the meat feast pizza which was extremely bland and chewy . I didn't quite believe him when he said the pizza had absolutely no flavour and thought his palate just isn't quite as used to vegan alternatives as mine is. Unfortunately, I tried it and he was 100% correct. With the restaurant having nothing but positive reviews, this leads me to believe maybe this was just a one off and the chef had forgotten to add any seasoning to the pizza perhaps?

Therefore, the disappointment of the food goes hand in hand with feeling as though the value for money was not too good. Would likely not come again if we were to re visit Edinburgh

Had dinner with my mum last night and it was amazing. I ordered some pasta and she ordered pizza. Nice portions and delicious food. Our waitress was Spanish and made sure we understood the menu and how things were made, so we could enjoy our meal. Safe to say I would recommend to my friends to go there. It is not cheap though.

Been wanting to come here for a long time but was disappointed to say the least. Service very slow, food took over 30 minutes. This would be understandable if the food was fresh but it was just supermarket boiled pasta in an acidic tinned tomato grainy sauce. The side of courgette was mushy and had had the whole spice cupboard thrown at it before being smothered in excessive amounts of raw garlic which wiped out any other flavour, it was inedible. The staff were sat at the back of the small restaurant on their phones when all tables had finished eating and were waiting to be cleared. They took over 30 minutes before clearing the table and stopped mid way to get deliveries. The total came to £66 with no tip~ a COMPLETE rip off!! The staff and “chefs” clearly didn’t care what they were doing, and were just out to rip people off. Vegan food at it’s very worst, won’t be coming back. If you want to go to an actual restaurant with proper polite service, delicious fresh vegan Italian food and reasonable pricing go to Novva pizza

Great little vegan restaurant! The portions are quite large, but if you don't finish the food the staff will happily put the rest in a take away tub for you. The pasta sauces are delicious. The seitan in a lemon sauce was so good, but could maybe do with a side of potatoes or veg to go with it. Would definitely recommend a visit though for great food!

This is a gem of a place. When we relocate we will be taking all of our non vegan friends to show them how good vegan food can be. We will be returning!
The staff were pleasant and obviously enjoy working there. It was a pleasure. Thank you

I have been vegan for around 6/7 months and this is easily the best meal I’ve had since I’ve changed! Would recommend to anyone. Had been craving a proper creamy pasta since going vegan and this was amazing and very authentic.

Fun vegan menu, good wine, great staff. They're uncannily good at substitutes for dairy milk, whether in pasta sauces or in the ice cream of the affogato. Some dishes are quintessentially Italian, while others are more modified to UK tastes.

Had the rigatoni with broccoli, porcini mushrooms and sausage and have been thinking about ever since. The white chocolate cheesecake was also divine! Don't want to eat anywhere else in Edinburgh now, will definitely be back!

Super friendly wait staff, and very helpful in making our decisions. Tasty food coming in large portions -- but I was able to easily finish and feel satisfied. Am not sure if they were using plastic for take-out containers. I hope not. Was going to order the gnocchi, but they were out. The seitan, however, was excellent.
