A Taste of Italy Arrives on The Royal Mile
A Taste of Italy Arrives on The Royal Mile


Award winning restaurant, Cucina at G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh, has announced the launch of its Italian tasting menu, expertly created by Head Chef, Mattia Camorani. 
The first of its kind in the capital, the five-course menu will be updated seasonally, and will take diners on a gastronomic journey through Italy, with authentic dishes from the country's key culinary heartlands. The journey starts in the northern region of Emilia-Romagna, with its signature dish Seppia e piselli con polenta bianca (cuttlefish and peas with white polenta); before heading southbound with tagliolini pasta from Ligura, Sicilian swordfish and a pork dish from Calabria. Diners will then finish up in Veneto with a classic Tiramisu. 

Head Chef, Mattia Camorani, said; "Our Cucina tasting menu is an exciting opportunity to showcase the restaurant's offering, starting with an exploration of the diverse and iconic flavours of Italian cuisine. 

"Working with suppliers here in Scotland, we have created a series of menus that perfectly marry the larders of Italy and Scotland together, representing Cucina and its truly dynamic Scottish-Italian flavour."

The five course tasting menu costs £50 per person. Delicious wines can also be matched for each course by Cucina's expert sommelier for an additional £25.
