Had dinner Wed night. Was looking forward to a great night and I certainly got it. Food was amazing - chef really proved himself. Waiting staff were too good to be true. Whenever I wanted something I looked and they were there. I will certainly be going back to Al Fresco again!

Had dinner on Sat night in May. The restaurant was virtually empty - the staff were friendly but the food was not good. My mushroom ravioli was not bad but my sister's cannelloni looked like it had come out of a can - she asked if it was made with mincemeat before ordering, but when it came it was certainly not homemade - the filling was completely processed and a pale pink in colour and the sauce looked like tomato soup witha bit of cream mixed in - not like any homemade cannelloni I have ever eaten! When it came to the dessert, my tiramisu was not bad but my poor sister ordered the crepes - warning bells should have rung when the waiter asked if she wanted them hot or cold. When they came, they were as dry as a bone and very unappetising. We were very disappointed as we thought Giulanos had a good reputation and I remember going there several times years ago and really enjoying the food - shame. Rustic Italian it ain't!!!

Al Fresco, 22 Union Place, EH1 3NQ, Edinburgh

We ate in Al Fresco last night and enjoyed the food. We were annoyed, however, when the bill arrived and we had been charged £13.20 for a prawn and tuna Marie Rose dish. We asked for the dish as a main course and got charged double the starter price! I would expect to pay £13.20 for a steak but certainly not for a a dish that was basically a prawn cocktail with avocado! When we explained this to the waiting staff, there was no attempt on their behalf to refer the matter to a manager or any suggestion about reducing the bill. We won't be returning here as we felt we were completely ripped off. This is a shame, as overall, it was quite a pleasant dining experience.

Booked a party of 8 for pre theatre dinner on a Wednesday night.

Service was very quick and welcoming.

Food was very good and great value. Mushroom Ravioli and Mussels in particular were big hits. Because it was a pre theatre dinner time was short but service was very rapid. Drinks a bit more expensive but a good experience. Will be back.
