Enjoying the main event at Italian restaurants in Aberdeen
Formal Italian restaurants in Aberdeen may offer pasta as a starter, or primo course with a meat or fish secondo as the main. Don't worry if your appetite is not up to both, however, as it is perfectly acceptable these days to have pasta as your main course. The list is almost endless, with traditional favourites like carbonara, lasagne, ravioli and macaroni always popular with diners. You can always find some tasty alternatives, though. Crab and tiger prawn fettuccine will delight seafood fans, while chilli chicken pasta with red pesto will satisfy those looking for a little heat. There's a huge variety of pizzas on offer, along with some lovely, creamy risottos. You'll also find a good selection of fish dishes in Italian restaurants and Aberdeen's position as a major port means lots of the freshest seafood for the kitchens.
