The Big Deal Team don’t have a theatrical bone in our bodies – unless someone makes the mistake of suggesting we skip a meal.
At which point, we can out-diva everyone from Carey to Callas.
Located right next to both the Royal Lyceum Theatre and the Usher Hall, and just two minutes from the Traverse, Zucca Italian restaurant is perfect for peckish culture lovers.
Set the stage for a great Italian meal with today’s Big Deal at Zucca on Grindlay Street.
Available at lunch or dinner, Tuesday to Saturday, this offer would be perfect for a pre-theatre bite; post-show dinner or simply a romantic meal in a charming setting.
Awarded two forks and spoons in the current Michelin Guide, Zucca prides itself on serving the freshest and finest Italian food.
The mezzanine level restaurant is decorated in a theatrical theme but the real stars of the show are on the plate.
The offer is for two people to each enjoy any starter followed by any dish from the pasta and risotto section of the menu.
Popular starters include the selection of Italian cured meats with artichokes and pecorino cheese; the carpaccio of Scotch beef topped with truffle oil, rocket and parmesan and the classic Caprese salad with buffalo mozzarella, beef tomato, basil and extra virgin olive oil.
With twelve dishes to choose from, the pasta and risotto section of the menu offers plenty of choice.
Will it be the baked cannelloni; the spicy meatballs with spaghetti or perhaps the ever popular penne carbonara made with smoked bacon, cream and Parmesan?
We also have our eye on the wild mushroom risotto which is finished with truffle oil and aged Parmesan.
There will be a £2 surcharge levied on any fish/seafood starter or fish/seafood pasta and risotto choice.
Just under 200 diners have booked a table at Zucca through 5pm and left a review. Together, they have rated it a very solid 4.1/5. This recent reviewer kept her verdict short and sweet:
‘Delicious meal!’ Rating 5/5
