    Loved it!

    We had the £12 deal - main course, dessert and soft drink for £12. Fantastic value, great choice and very tasty food. Will go back asap.

    Excellent as always

    Travelling through to Edinburgh for the annual CLIC Sargent Cancer Care for Children Carol Concert is always enhanced by our meal in Zucca prior to the concert. Excellent service, food, wine - and no complaint when we arrived a bit later than planned!
