La Piazza

While there are no shortage of Italian restaurants in Edinburgh, La Piazza don’t appear to to be feeling the heat. Quietly getting on with doing what they do best, this modern-styled eatery does a roaring trade in traditional food. Situated on Shandwick Place, the restaurant is just seconds away from the city’s famous Princes Street. La Piazza’s popularity owes far more to its food than to its location however. Dishes are lovingly prepared using fresh mozzarella, mussels and tortelloni. The recipes may be familiar but they taste anything but run-of-the-mill. Flavours are startlingly bold, bringing simple food pairings to life. The pizzas are light and crispy, the pasta sauces rich and creamy. A good wine list incorporates a selection of refreshing Mediterranean grapes, while rich liqueurs provide a suitable end to the evening’s proceedings. Unusually, for an Italian restaurant, home deliveries are provided, giving a convenient get-out clause when it’s your turn to cook. Although a popular haunt for couples, La Piazza also cater for larger groups of friends, with parties readily accommodated.

The food was great, especially the meatballs, the staff charming and helpful and we had a thoroughly good evening. If we had had more nights in town we would have gone back. The restaurant was busy so I suggest you book . The on line booking from their web site was really helpful.
