Enjoy a meal to remember

Edinburgh has some of the most romantic restaurants in Edinburgh. Italian food and passion go hand in hand, don’t they? Eat below ground level at Edinburgh’s finest Italian Restaurant Wine Bar, Divino Enoteca.  It’s a  hidden gem in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town yet only minutes from the bustle of the city.

Candles and exposed stone walls make for flattering lighting – perfect for a special date night!

With margaritas to die for, Cod Tacos, Pork Shoulder Tacos and Chorizo Quesadillas, what’s not to love? Oh, did we mention the music is incredible? Perfect for getting you in the mood…for dancing!
