European-style Penicuik restaurants are endlessly popular
Penicuik's restaurants certainly won’t disappoint those with a penchant for continental flavours. For a taste of the old country, you might want to head to Little Italy on Edinburgh Road. Here you can enjoy pizzas garnished with authentic buffalo mozzarella, homemade Italian sausage, fresh basil and other tasty toppings. Some of the town's trattoria also have live singing and piano recitals – just the thing to add extra frisson to a romantic dinner date. In addition there are numerous options further afield such as Cote on Frederick Street in Edinburgh's New Town, with its menu of onion soup, Breton fish stew, steak frites and other timeless French dishes.
