Tasty food. Good service
Very enjoyable visit. The set menu had a good selection of dishes. Really enjoyed the sea bass and the others in our group were happy with their meals.
Great wee original Italian restaurant. Service was fabulous and the food was amazing. Purchased the Big Deal voucher which was great value. Got a main and drink. If you're looking for some authentic Italian food before heading to the theatre, this is the place to go to. Quick service, not a fussy place and I will definitely be back.
Cheery Italian in Edinburgh city centre
Martone is a light and airy, family-run Italian cafe restaurant on Waterloo Place in the heart of Edinburgh. As well as a bright and cheerful decor across both the ground and mezzanine level, Martone has an eye-catching ice cream counter filled with many varieties of their award-winning and often unexpected ice cream flavours.
All day Italian menu
Whether you need a hearty breakfast to start the day; a mid-afternoon toastie snack or a morning cup of coffee and an almond croissant, Martone can quickly put you right. There are burgers, wraps, baked potatoes and salads which all make for a quick and tasty lunch. Many of the options have a light Italian touch – the chicken wrap comes with roasted peppers, sun-blushed tomatoes and pesto mayonnaise.
Diners can also delve deeper into Martone’s Italian roots with the extensive range of pizza and pastas available. From a classic Siciliana pizza – topped with tomato, mozzarella, olives, capers and anchovies – to penne cooked with gorgonzola, spinach and a cream sauce, Martone’s chefs can deliver an authentic taste of Italy.
