A lovey and cozy place. Perfect for an awesome breakfast to get a perfect start in the day! I would really recommend to visit Polentini once if you are in Edinburgh.

Very very happy we visited. Funky cool cafe, which is what we are used to and were looking for. Cool hip hop music playing which topped off the atmosphere. We had the asparagus and ham hock breakfast dishes and they were delicious. Coffee was spot on! Can not function without a good coffee so we were very pleased. We’ll come back if we can before we leave.

I've been there many many times and they have never let me down. Food is really tasty and portions quite generous. The sourdough bread is to die for (probably the best I've ever had in Edinburgh)!! Staff is smiley and helpful. They're always very busy :)

Delicious food, friendly owners, love this place. Good for a sit down meal or takeaway authentic Italian snacks like saltimboccas and mini calzones. Cakes and coffee are fantastic too.

Delicious brunches & lunches and everything is made in house (breads, croissants, cakes and loads more), they serve wonderful Italian coffee too! One of my favourites.

I randomly stumbled this cute cafe' on my way to a meeting and decided to pop in for a quick coffee and cake as I was starving! Not the best way to go into a meeting let me tell you. 

I absolutely love the brand for Polentoni. It's certainly sticks out like a sore thumb on Easter Road. The food is authentic Italian and the service is spot on. Worth a visit.

Relaxed and informal cafe with a delicious display of foodstuffs.   Ethe italian eggs benedict was delicious - salty Parma harm and buttery hollandaise sauce.

Will be back!

Lovely place with friendly staff! I work from home occasionally and it’s my go-to for picking up lunch. It does delicious filled ciabattas to take away but there is so much more, including focaccias, soups, salads, pastas, and it is all so fresh. Definitely recommend.

The fabulous bakery in Edinburgh🤩. I used to live in the neighbourhood and buy bread here for breakfast. Their spinach and egg bread and roasted potato bread were my favourite. This is the place I've missed the most since I moved.🥹

Came for the Fringe, but this little bakery was a highlight! Great value, great taste, and very authentic. The sandwiches and pastries/cakes are fantastic, looking forward to visiting again in the future!

A niche café. This Italian café is located near Calton Hill, 10-15 minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley station. I was very intrigued by this café as it was highly rated (4.8 stars) on google reviews and it was near where I was staying. The first thing to note is that the café does not allow customers who only want to drink because there is not much seating available. My table was a bit sticky when I arrived. The dishes are unique in that they are not typical Italian dishes, these dishes have a unique twist and is run by native Italians. The wild boar ragu gnocchi was not available on the day I went. Instead, I ordered the Arancini which was one of the special’s of the day and it costed £10. The Arancini was tasty. I also ordered the mocha (£2.50) which was a bit too sweet, I could even see the brown sugar granules at the bottom of the drink as I was finishing the drink. For me the prices are more towards the pricey side. Overall, a unique café with interesting food but the mocha was a bit of letdown and the prices are more on the pricey side.

Best sandwiches in Edinburgh. Super nice staff as well. Always the highlight of my weekend when we go. They do this bean, pancetta and parmesan soup which probably the best soup I’ve ever had

Excellent Italian food. No pizza, just nice normal really testy good food. Is a BYOB, so you can bring drinks from the near places to enjoy your meal. Cousy, comfortable, nice, simple but elegant. Great coffee

Great little place. The menu is really different as well, with a heavy Italian influence. Polenta, burrata, pancetta; fantastic quality ingredients. The staff are also lovely, make you feel very welcome. Highly recommended.

I am giving 5 stars because I cannot give 10! This place sure it's tiny and you may have to queue for a bit, but God their food is heavenly! I have been today for a late lunch with my partner and we both had the gnocchi with fennel sausage sauce. I was almost moved to tears because the flavors of the sauce remembered the one my old grandma used to prepare for the family on Sunday lunches. Please help me spread the word about this place because such wonderful businesses deserve to have a huge success!

As an exchange student returning home soon, this is one of my favorite spots in Edinburgh which I will miss extremely. I quite simply cannot walk by without buying something. I go absolutely feral for one of their Parma ham sandwiches with courgette pesto, rocket & mozz on the freshest, crustiest bread. And would promise my first born for a slice of the chocolate cake. This shop is also run by the loveliest individuals which makes stopping by such a pleasure!
