    A Wee Gem

    Had a lovely pre-Christmas Saturday night meal here. The food was fabulous and the service enhanced the night. The staff looked after us superbly. We’ll definitely be back the next time we’re through in Edinburgh.

Cosy Italian in Tollcross

Piccolino is a welcoming Italian bistro on High Riggs in Edinburgh’s Tollcross. Hung with hams, sausages and cheeses, it is a compact and laidback space. Piccolino is the sort of venue that works equally well for a low key date; a convivial dinner with a group of friends or a catch-up with a pal you have not seen for a while.

Simple Italian dishes

Piccolino doesn’t offer dozens of different choices. Instead, the kitchen concentrates on eight starters and around sixteen main courses. The emphasis is on keeping everything simple and letting the ingredients sing. Popular starters include the marinated octopus salad, the Caprese salad and the bresaola – air-dried beef charcuterie – on a bed of rocket and Parmesan.

The main courses feature familiar dishes prepared as authentically as possible. For example, the ragu sauce is made with venison while the clam spaghetti is topped with grated mullet bottarga. Away from the pasta, gnocchi and risotto options, more meaty choices might be the British sirloin served on rocket and Parmesan or the rolled chicken breast filled with mozzarella, sun-dried tomato and basil. A seafood option might be the sea bass fillet filled with speck and tomato sauce while a typical veggie dish would be the roasted pepper filled with fregola, mozzarella and sun-dried tomato.

Tollcross attractions and transport links

Piccolino is on High Riggs. There is limited on-street parking in the area. Haymarket train station is a brisk fifteen minute walk from the restaurant and there are several bus stops with services running to and from Edinburgh’s city centre. Local attractions include the King’s Theatre; the Odeon, Cameo and Filmhouse cinemas plus the Meadows.
