About the restaurant
Milano does authentic Italian and it does it well, with all the freshness, colour, and atmosphere you could wish for. Located on the Lothian Road in the west end of Edinburgh’s city centre, on the fringes of the Old Town, Milano’s exquisitely appointed restaurant is the perfect place for a romantic meal or relaxed family feast. Choose to dine a la carte or book in for an express lunch set menu – either way you can expect the best of the bel paese to be brought to table.
City centre and Edinburgh west end workers and residents lucky enough to be within walking distance from Milano’s Lothian Road restaurant regularly pack out the place to enjoy a great value express lunch, available every day from noon until a generous 6pm, at which time a la carte dining takes over. Choose from a good range of pasta dishes or pizza, meat or fish or even a burger. And if you’re feeling cheeky and want a midday tipple, Milano’s wine list is divided up according to the vintage’s regional Italian provenance, making for some informed oenological indulgence.
Milano’s a la carte menu is where this Edinburgh Italian restaurant really shows its strength, with a selection as considered as many far more expensive places in the city centre or upscale west end venues. Classically structured, begin your meal with appetisers, hot and cold antipasti platters, with the signature antipasto Milano presenting a variety of italian cured meats, mozzarella cheese and vegetables. If you’re going for pasta (gluten-free is an option), we recommend the penne norcina, with minced Italian sausage, wild mushrooms and a creamy sauce. Popular pizzas, risotto, meat and fish dishes round out a quintessentially Italian offering.
