A vibrant, buzzy, award winning Italian family run restaurant in one of Edinburgh’s most beautiful rooms. This former banking hall is modelled on a Florentine Palazzo and delivers everything you want from a fabulous, authentic contemporary Italian restaurant. They source produce direct from the markets in Italy and change the menus every 6 weeks with the seasons.
Homemade pasta is made fresh every morning with delicious Puglian focaccia. This food is perfect for sharing. A fun, informal and very special family restaurant, brimming with fresh ingredients and Italian passion. Bellissimo!
Victor and Carina have selected décor that is inspiring: calm soft pewter grey with wonderful rococo feature walls. Candles and banquettes, majestic pillars and immaculate table settings – this venue has style in spades. The fabulous menu will give you not just a taste of Italy but a complete mind, body and taste experience of finest Italian cooking, with many of our finest local producers featured too!
