As the curtain falls on another busy year of work, the stage is set for a fantastic Christmas meal at this Italian restaurant in Edinburgh. This is a venue brimming with character and exuding elegance as it is housed in the city’s former Assembly Rooms. With deep red walls, velvet seating and chandeliers dripping from the ceiling, this decadent dining room is a great place to celebrate in style.
We’ll reserve your group a table 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 drinks and browse the Christmas party 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.
Start the feast by whetting your appetite with a starter such as the Primavera Arancini or Cured Meat Plank, before moving on to a delicious main course. Big, comforting bowls of pasta will give you an authentic taste of Italy while the restaurant’s signature Italian Burger is to die for. There is also the option of crisp salad, creamy risotto and a juicy aubergine dish for vegetarians.
If you still have room for dessert – or even if you don’t – you can indulge yourself in true Christmas style with a tempting trio of desserts. These include a creamy White Chocolate Cheesecake, refreshing sorbet or the trademark Epic Brownie.
