Ciao to new Italian restaurant next to The Kings Theatre

Beautifully preserved, the beloved King’s Theatre is a treasured piece of  Edinburgh history. Built as a variety theatre in 1906, the King’s now presents a seasonal mix-bag of treats for the people of Edinburgh. This month there is a mix of opera and ‘who dunnit’ with an Agatha Christie. Now there is a new restaurant round the corner from the Kings to tempt theatre goers.

Maria and Stefano Molfino of Rigatonis By The Queens, have expanded their family empire with their new site – Rigatonis By The Kings. Leaving their children at the helm of the first site, the parents have developed their winning formula of good home-cooked Italian food, served in a welcoming family environment and given it a more mature edge, with a slick and modern design and incorporating a wine and cocktail bar. A stone’s throw from Edinburgh’s beloved King’s Theatre, they offer a lunch, group and pre-theatre menu as well as their à la carte delights.Pre theatre menu served from 17:00 to 18:30 is very reasonable: 2 COURSE £14.95 / 3 COURSE £17.95. Take your  pick from starters such as king prawns and garlic in a chilli tomato sauce, clams, garlic and white wine sauce or  buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes and basil and mains such as  spaghetti bolognese – rich tomato and beef sauce or penne with mushrooms in a cream sauce and puds such as home tiramisu or cheesecake of the day. Then down to the serious business of who murdered who at the Theatre….
