Piccolino Edinburgh is the perfect little spot in which to enjoy great Italian food and after work drinks in central Edinburgh.
Whether you’re seated in the cosy dining room or on the pavement terrace, the atmosphere is as warm and welcoming as it would be at your Italian friend’s house.
Expect freshly prepared homemade pasta, risotto, tender meat and fresh fish dishes. All are delicious - there’s a reason it was named Scotland’s Best Newcomer Italian Restaurant 2018.
Juicy meatballs in tomato sauce are a flavoursome way to start, although fishy fans shouldn’t miss the excellent local mussels with your choice of sauce. When it comes to pasta, there really is something for everyone. From classic bolognese to sophisticated shellfish linguine, you’re sure to find something to get your taste buds tingling.
The wine list reads like a geography lesson of Italy’s best wine regions, while an excellent selection of cocktails are just the thing if you fancy a nightcap.
So what are you waiting for? Time to say ciao to your new favourite restaurant!
