Open Tuesday to Sunday from 12pm till late

One of Edinburgh’s finest food and wine bars is ready to reveal a new chapter in its mission to deliver authentic Italian cuisine and stimulating Italian wines. Following a recent expansion Divino, the Old Town favourite, is eager to launch its new menu and spanking fresh look.

Stepping through that modest door has always been a magical experience – interiors of rich leather, warm wood, exposed stone and twinkling candlelight make the perfect bucolic setting to kick back and forget about the city bustle beyond those characterful stone walls. And now there’s some bright new stars on the menu courtesy of Head chef Francesco Ascrizzi. Culatello Di Collina and Gnocco Frito makes a lush starter — a brace of rustic ham served with warm Emilian fried bread sprinkled with parmesan in a smooth truffle cream cheese. From the mains, Tagliatelle al Nero di Seppia e Gamberetti (Fresh squid ink pasta sautéed with prawns in a lemon and prawn bisque) is rich, zingy and succulent. And there’s always time for the Grand Antipasto Divino, a rich array of the best hams, salamis, cheeses and olives this side of Bologna.

Great food and wine served with passion and panache has always been Divina’s core mission, so now there’s even more reason to find time to luxuriate in its cosy, stylish interior.
