The buzz of happy diners and the warm and welcoming service all add to the fun and put you in the mood for a great night out. And let's not forget the food. You can expect all the classics you know and love, such as the huge variety of pasta dishes, antipasto and flavourful risottos but the array of Italian restaurants in Edinburgh's New Town means that there is so much more to enjoy.
These old favourites are so tempting but Italian restaurants in Edinburgh's New Town are beginning to bring new flavours from Italy to the table. You can now sample the sort of regional cooking that was once only available in Italy, right here in the capital. Stuffed porchetta from Lazio and Orecchiette with raw tomato sauce from Puglia are just two examples but there are so many more taste sensations awaiting the more adventurous diner - ask your waiter for recommendations and enjoy.
