At the vibrant heart of G&V Hotel Edinburgh is Restaurant Cucina, a vivid, bustling, designer restaurant. The freshest seasonal ingredients and hearty flavours epitomise the authentic modern cooking that has been inspired by classic Italian cuisine.

Perfectly positioned at the corner of George IV Bridge and the Royal Mile, just steps from Edinburgh Castle, G&V Hotel is in the heart of Edinburgh. Open all day from breakfast until late, Cucina at G&V Hotel offers a menu of fresh, seasonal and authentic Italian dishes such as oven roasted partridge with balsamic glazed pumpkin or lemon sole with pine kernels and black olives. The exquisite dessert list has innovative decadences like chocolate orange bavarois with mandarin purée and balsamic vinegar ice cream or apple panna cotta with Cox apple petal and Granny Smith apple sorbet.

As the day progresses, the atmosphere changes from open and relaxed at breakfast and lunch to vibrant and intimate for dinner. In the stylish bar, there is afternoon tea to rival the best Edinburgh has to offer. The G&V Hotel afternoon tea offers traditional homemade fruit and plain scones, Italian deluxe finger sandwiches and Italian delicacies from the pastry chef.

    Faultless food and service. From the moment we entered, we were made to feel special - being escorted to our table and provided with efficient and friendly but not overbearing attentiveness. The food was all delicious, homemade, Italian prepared to let the ingredients shine. The Parmesan cheese served with the starter was nothing I had ever experienced before and was the star of the show for me.

    I have not been here for 3 years and once again the food was beautifully cooked. Cocktails were made to my choice as they were not on the menu as the bar staff were fun and friendly.
    Service was very good and we enjoyed our evening on 1st January. Great way to start the new year. Thank you to all at cacina in Edinburgh

    We left before we had anything to eat as there was a group of ladies who had decided to make far too much noise. We could not be seated anywhere else and the Manager said that there was nothing that he could do to keep them quiet as they were enjoying themselves. Apparently the enjoyment of the other diners counted for nothing.
