Deep scarlet walls, soft velvet furnishings and sparkling chandeliers will welcome you as you enter this Italian restaurant in Edinburgh. Owned by one of Britain’s most popular celebrity chefs, the restaurant is brimming with character and exudes elegance as it is housed in the city’s former Assembly Rooms.
We will reserve you an exclusive dining room in this spectacular setting, which still features the original steps, pillars and cornicing from its theatre days. Once comfortably seated, you can enjoy your first glasses of wine or Prosecco and browse the menu, which is full of tempting choices. If you’d like to order more drinks to keep the merriment flowing, there are plenty of specially selected beers, wines and spirits available at a little extra cost.
There may even be the possibility of a DJ or entertainment to accompany your meal, and this can be arranged by speaking to your account manager. Once the party is in full swing, there is only one thing left to complete the package – the food.
The Christmas party menu features a range of traditional Italian dishes such as their slow-roasted pork belly and flavoursome nut roasts for vegetarian guests. These classic dishes will give you an authentic taste of Italy, and the more contemporary choices such as the sea trout with pumpkin and salsa verde are also to die for.
If you still have room for dessert – or even if you don’t – you can indulge yourself in true Christmas style with a deliciously tempting trio of desserts including a wonderfully dark chocolate tart.
