The Story Behind

Our Story

Enjoying your meal accompanied by a wonderful wine enhances the experience. We have proudly curated an exclusively Italian Wine List, each wine carefully selected by Giovanni and Lisa.
Quality & Balance

Using local suppliers and produce, where possible, with deliveries daily allows Giovanni to create his dishes with the best of Scotland’s larder and beyond. His zeal for fish and seafood sees his Linguine ai Frutti di Mare a signature dish.

Our love for all things Italian and Giovanni’s genuine passion in the kitchen at work and at home have been the driving force behind La Bruschetta since 2002.


The intimate atmosphere of La Bruschetta allows visitors to relax after a hard working day.

What People Are Saying
Absolutely phenomenal food. We haven't had pasta this good in far too long. We had starters too but we didn't think about photos till after it was demolished! A little gutted we don't live anywhere near otherwise we would be firm regulars bur we shall definitely be visiting next time we come to Edinburgh.
We went here for a work dinner, not being from Edinburgh I booked this online based on the reviews. It does look very romantic from the outside as it's quite small, about 9 tables. The service, food and atmosphere were outstanding and really happy we found it. Everyone enjoyed their food; a good choice of wines and the gentleman serving us were so warm and friendly.
Fantastic food, wine and service. A small restraunt I was worried we wouldn't get a table but the accommodating staff were lovely and attentive throughout our meal, the food was brilliant and we will definitely come again if we get the chance, as only visiting Edinburgh for a few days. Highlight of our trip so far.

“ No matter what the occasion, the whole restaurant may be hired for special functions. As one of the few restaurants in Scotland to have been awarded the Eccellenza Italiane, this little haven of Italian fine dining in the middle of Haymarket is sure to delight. ”
