THERE were only two tables left when we arrived, it was that busy and even the staff were surprised. We feared we would have a long wait and that did not appeal after a long drive from the Essex coast. The waiter said: “No problem.” And you know what, he was right. The meal was delivered piping hot within minutes. By that time I’d had time to swallow the cost of a bottle of Italian beer – over £6 – and that is steep. But the food, mine was a new item of the menu, seafood risotto, and Pam enjoyed her calzone. It was packed with filling and the dough was just the right texture. It was noisy to begin with, no curtains and wooden floor, but as people left became more acceptable. The restaurant is part of a chain with one, apparently, coming to Edinburgh soon. I may indulge.
