If you’re looking for somewhere hip and modern don’t go but if you’re wanting authentic and traditional Italian food that’s great value for money then please visit Giuliano’s next time you’re in Edinburgh! I’ll definitely be back

The best pizza base I have tasted! Lovely garlic prawn starter and homemade pate was lovely. The staff did a great job considering there were only a few in. Ask for their home made chilli oil to add to your pizza if you like spicy food, it's amazing!

Would definitely return.

Food and atmosphere was very nice. Would have liked the sauces on the chicken to have. Wen a bit more rich with more cream in it. Enjoyed chat with the owner who looked after us well and gave us some nice recipes.

Enjoyed a casual lunch midweek with frail elderly Lady- she was well looked after. They were happy with us choosing 2Starters each. We had Bruschetta/ only comment here was the bread was a little over done at edges which made it difficult to cut- otherwise excellent flavours.
My Frito Misto was crisp and good fish selection. My friend was delighted with her Tripe dish said it was very good.
Have eaten here before and will return.
Thank you all.

Haven't been here for a few years. Took friends who had never been before. We had a delicious lunch. Everyone enjoyed their meal & thought it was excellent value. It was much quieter than than any of my previous visits but the ambiance was still good. Shall be back again soon.

Our food was just warm, not hot and overpriced. Everyone I ate with had a very upset stomach that night and morning after (different households).
I will not be going back there and overall I am not happy with my experience.
