Zucca, an “artisan” Italian restaurant, located in the west end of Edinburgh’s theatre district, is a firm favourite with the pre-theatre crowds, tourists and locals alike, looking for great food without too much fuss and formality.

Ideally situated in between the Royal Lyceum, the Usher hall and the Travers theatre, it aims to offer elegant but simple food, using fine Italian and Scottish produce, reflecting both seasonality and the chefs’ creativity, maintaining a Mediterranean theme throughout.

The food is complimented by an unpretentious selection of good wines, moderately priced; highlighting the best style each Italian region has to offer.
