How did the hipster burn his mouth?
He ate his pizza before it was cool.
Ok, that joke is past its best.
Happily today’s Big Deal with Tutto Matto is as fresh as the morning dew and twice as sweet.
The offer is for one person to have any starter and any main course from the a la carte followed by a Tutto Matto 99 dessert.
Located on Nicolson Street, opposite Edinburgh Festival Theatre, Tutto Matto is a fun, new restaurant serving stone-baked pizza from around the world along with a sensational range of burgers, salads and pasta.
Tricked out in a very fashionable contemporary rustic style, the split level dining room is decked with pizza shovels, wood block feature panels and up-cycled seating.
The open plan kitchen provides plenty of theatre as the chefs slide pizza into the 500 degree C ovens.
The deal is very straightforward.
Available seven days a week, the offer is for one person to have any starter and main course followed by the Tutto Matto 99 – one scoop of Crolla’s dairy vanilla ice cream served in a wafer cone and topped with a Cadbury’s Flake.
There are eight varieties of pizza available from different Italian regions. Alongside these are a wide selection of pizza inspired by global flavours.
The New York is topped with smashed Italian meatballs while the Peking is made with hoi sin plum pizza sauce and crispy shredded duck.
Other fun choices include the Berlin topped with sauerkraut, landjager sausage and Emmental cheese or the Glasgow pizza which has been described as a full Scottish breakfast on a pizza.
The latter is recommended for anyone seeking a little comfort the morning after the night before.
Add in seven different Simon Howie burgers plus a great range of pasta – try the seafood spaghetti – and it’s a jaw-dropping array of main courses.
And we’ve not even mentioned the haggis bon bons; crab and calamari fishcakes; voodoo chicken or the meat and cheese boards which are on the starters section.
Tutto Matto has not been open very long and is already garnering great reviews on its Facebook page:
‘I’m not a burger fan but Tutto Matto has converted me! Decadent and luscious. The spaghetti with fish sauce took me back home to our town on the Adriatic Sea. A menu like I’ve never seen before, exciting Prosecco and coolest staff ever. The music? Got me singing through dinner. Don’t miss out!’
‘Highly recommend Tutto Matto. Atmosphere is brilliant, staff are amazing and the food is phenomenal (Texas pizza was one of the best pizzas I’ve had!) Will definitely be back.’
Today’s Big Deal is an excellent introduction to Tutto Matto. This Big Deal writer has been along and it’s a fun space with top notch pizza. Give the Santorini a whirl.
The availability on this deal means that it could be used on all sorts of occasions.
Lunch, dinner, date, night out with friends, pre-theatre bite, Sunday lunch with family, mid-afternoon tutorial dodge…
