A little piece of Rome or Florence tucked away over in Leith, Cafe Domenico serves up authentic cuisine, just how it is done back in Italy. With traditional red and white table cloths and rustic wooden decor, this quaint cafe and restaurant is full of charm, winning over the hearts of Edinburgh’s aficionados of Italian cuisine since it was established in 1988. Tuck into a classic pasta dish like the spaghetti with mussels, squid, chili and olive oil or some meat or seafood dish like the chicken breast stuffed with butternut squash and goats’ cheese, wrapped in cured ham and served with potatoes and wilted spinach. You’ll find Cafe Domenico located on Sandport Street – book a table and head on over!
An excellent lunch yesterday - starter of scallops & black pudding, main dish slow-cooked rabbit with linguine beautifully cooked then lemon liqueur cake to finish.
Had a lovely time. Food was wholesome and tasty Service was top notch Will absolutely be back
Spoilt for choice in this part of Leith, we took a chance by ignoring the unpretentious exterior of Cafe Dominica and stepped inside to be greeted very warmly indeed. The interior is small but delightful with a genuinely Italian feel, helped along by the cheerful and attentive staff. The range of dishes was somewhat limited but there was more than enough choice to make a delicious meal, including the tempting 'specials’ of the day. When the food arrived, we were absolutely delighted with the presentation, the ample portions and most importantly the taste of the food itself. Brilliant service, great food, super ambience and reasonable prices; what is there not to like? Highly recommended.
