    Always a great experience at Sora Lella. Love the chilled, friendly vibe (a great cosy place for couple on dates, families with a wee one, pals and parents) and the food is always superb. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Make sure you book as they're understandably very popular. Definitely show some love for an independent queer-owned, vegan business. It's easy with Sora Lella when the experience is always lovely!

    Absolutely brilliant vegan Italian food. Fresh pesto on brushetta was a delight for starter. Both mains were delicious including the carbonara and the rigatoni with brocolli and truffle oil. Deserts of lemon cheesecake and tiramisu were equally lush. Great ambience in a small restaurant. Lovely staff. Not rushed. Well done

    Overall the food was very nice, authentically Italian with a good menu selection. Service was good too but descriptions of food could be better as food was all vegan but descriptions were not; it would be good to know actual ingredients rather than the meat equivalent such as chicken or bacon. Also, one of our choices was expected to be in a tomato or oil sauce but was neither, although there were some tomatoes in the dish. Having said that, the dish was very good. Restaurant is small so booking would be recommended. Overall we enjoyed a very good restaurant experience.

    The food was divine! We couldn't choose so we had a pizza to share as a starter and then each a main. The mushroom seitan and parmigiana melanzane were to die for. I wish we had a Sora Lella back home, will definitely come back!

    The food was excellent - we shared a focaccia bianca, and it was gorgeous, then my parmigiana di melenzane was just as wonderful as I remember it being from the olden days (when I ate dairy products). So good!

    Food was amazing as always! Service was ok - staff quite friendly but did feel they could have been a bit warmer. We were also given the bill without asking if we wanted dessert. However, I will still most definitely be back.

    Didn't enjoy this visit quite as much as my last one, but I think that was down to my food choices more than anything to do with the cooking. It's a lovely space away from the hubbub of Lothian Road and the staff are very nice. I'm not a vegan so might not pick Sora Lella as my favourite Italian restaurant in town - but, if you're a an actual vegan, it's definitely worth a visit - something unusual to try!

    We had a lovely dinner here. The food was outstanding, best Italian vegan food we’ve had. The menu had a lot to offer which was fab! Food service was quick however general table service was slow. Being a rosé drinker I was a little disappointed that they didn’t have any rosé at all, however the white wine I did have was lovely! Would 100% recommend to vegans or non vegans and will definitely be returning next time we are in Edinburgh!
