La Favorita

325–331 Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH6 8SA

There’s nothing phoney about La Favorita. From the home-made dough that forms the foundations of its pizzas to the cheerful gesticulations of its staff, there’s an air of Italian authenticity about the place – even the most stalwart Anglophones will…

Ristorante Gennaro

64 Grassmarket, Edinburgh, EH1 2JR


18–19 Union Place, Edinburgh, EH1 3NQ

Bang opposite the Playhouse, big, booming Guiliano’s captures the theatre crowds pre- and post-show, springing into life like a waterhole in the rains. That’s when it’s at its best: a packed house, a hen do or two, with tartan-waistcoated waiters…

Giuliano's on the Shore

1 Commercial Street, Edinburgh, EH6 6JA

Leith’s Shore may have seen much alteration over the past decades, but perched on the corner of Commercial Street this unassuming eatery has stood the test of time, blithely continuing to serve classic fare to both locals and a staunch cohort of…

La Lanterna

83 Hanover Street, Edinburgh, EH2 1EE

There are times you wonder if traditional Italian restaurants might be under threat as sharply lit chains and sophisticated, upmarket alternatives move in. With its wood panelling, chairs from the 80s and music from the 50s, La Lanterna, tucked down…

Locanda de Gusti

102 Dalry Road, Edinburgh, EH11 2DW

The name hasn't changed. Neither has the aim. The location of the Locanda de Gusti has, however, shifted across town from the foot of Broughton Street to Dalry Road, right next door to the spot where owner-chef Rosario Sartore first made his name a…

Mamma's American Pizza Company

30 Grassmarket, Edinburgh, EH1 2JU

This Grassmarket stalwart seems to exert a gravitational pull on small to medium sized groups of both locals and tourists looking for an impromptu food stop. Starters like sweet potato fries and macho nachos are decent enough, but their function is to…

Nonna's Kitchen

45 Morningside Road, Edinburgh, EH10 4AZ

In a genre in which the term ‘authentic’ can be too liberally doled out, the family-run (and family-friendly) Nonna’s is the real deal. The décor of the small but bustling space nestled at the crook of Morningside Road is muted and unobtrusive, serving…
