More about Zucca, Edinburgh

Decorated with chic furniture vintage film posters lining the walls, Edinburgh’s Zucca is the perfect place in the West End for a pre-theatre meal. Whet your appetite by starting off with the bruschetta or Scottish smoked mackerel, before moving on to a rustic Italian main. We recommend trying one of Zucca’s pizzas, cooked to perfection just like how they are done back in Italy. Go veg with the pizza spinaci (tomato, mozzarella, spinach, ricotta) or feast on the pizza alla diavola (tomato, mozzarella, spicy salami sausage and chilli peppers).

Other delicious options include an array of classic pastas as well as some meat and seafood dishes. Try the seafood fettuccine pasta with fennel, cherry tomatoes, chilli and garlic, or the lemon and thyme chicken breast served with cannellini beans and vegetables. Located in the West End of Edinburgh, in close proximity to the Royal Lyceum, the Usher hall and the Travers theatre, Zucca can get busy – book in advance to secure a seat!

Excellent service for a quick pre-theatre meal, and great food. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the ambience cheerful. And it's right next to the Lyceum.

Excellent meal, as always. Pleasant attentive staff and superb quality. The chocolate box dessert is fantastic but the homemade pasta is always perfectly cooked. The only place I'll eat gnocchi!
