"Dropped by here for the first time yesterday and enjoyed a wonderful lunch (gnocchi with pancetta!), staff are very friendly and service is top, incredible wine selection and a huge range of authentic Italian cuisine in the front of the shop! Will be back!" S. Miller – July 2019

"Had a few days in Edinburgh a fortnight ago, and being an avid fan of Alexander McCall Smith, I couldn't wait to visit Valvona & Crolla! It certainly didn't disappoint, it was everything I'd hoped for. We had a lovely lunch there, and made another trip to buy goodies to take home to Liverpool. I shall be ordering so much from there for friends and family's Christmas presents - just perfect!" L Jones – July 2019

"Enjoyed some lovely gnocchi with pancetta, top service with friendly staff in a wonderful location slightly hidden behind trees on Leith Walk, big selection of authentic Italian cuisine in the front of the restaurant too!" Anon - July 2019

"Valvona is an institution. When you walk in you'll be greeted by and incredible deli counter where you can get all manner of meats. Beyond that, however, is a little sit down restaurant housed by a number of wines by the bottle. Incredible." M Hollis – June 2019

"Highly recommend! Beautiful food and wines priced so reasonably, excellent service with friendly attentive staff! First though most certainly not last visit!!" Anon – June 2019

"Great hidden gem in a busy tourist city. If you crave real Italian food or a coffee and dessert this is it. The cafe is in the back of the deli, you can also find cheese, meat and all great things Italian" K Warrington – May 2019

"Fans of Alexander McCall Smith need to search out this little cafe for a real Edinburgh experience. Pizza and pastas were excellent. Service was great." Anon – May 2019

"Been on Elm Row for decades, quintessential Italian deli but with a cafe thru the back. Love the frittata breakfast roll with nice strong coffee to go with it. Lunch has some lovely choices" P Plevin – May 2019

"The deli part of V&C is like Aladdin's cave and I just want to buy everything. That wasn't the mission though, this time we were here for lunch. The chef in the caffe bar was on top form. My asparagus, ravioli and pecorino combination was sublime. This is a proper Italian restaurant." J Jardyce – April 2019

"Another on my list of favourite shops. Having lived in Italy I missed certain products and this place has everything. Still need to try the wine night but you will love the selection and you can spend ages just taking in the smell and atmosphere" A Bowman - April 2019
