    Hidden gem

    Great night! Food was amazing even the fussy kids cleared their plates. Very relaxed and genuinely can’t understand why it wasn’t packed out. Well worth a few minutes walk off the beaten track.

    Lovely Italian restaurant close to, but tucked away from busy Edinburgh City Centre. Food & wine were delicious and at a great price too. Will be back again very soon!

Friendly Italian & Scottish restaurant in New Town

Located on Howe Street in Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town, Papavero Restaurant aims to please lovers of both Italian and Scottish food. Decked out in warm reds and yellows with candles on the tables, it is an inviting space. As well as a lunch menu, Papavero offers a set lunch and full a la carte plus children’s menu. The kitchen always has a tempting range of daily specials.

Pizza, pasta and haggis

At Papavero, the menus are packed with classic Italian pizza and pasta dishes as well as Scottish favourites such as haggis, neeps and tatties; fish ‘n’ chips and char grilled steaks from the Borders. Some of the dishes, like the grilled black pudding wrapped in Parma ham, are an Italian Scotch fusion. Other dishes, like the Scottish salmon with a pistachio and Parmesan crust, use Scottish ingredients to make Italian dishes. The two countries theme continues with the choice of desserts where customers are as likely to be offered pannacotta as they are banoffee pie.
