Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighborhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking

In a genuine yet elegantly designed warm setting reminiscent of the traditional Italian Trattoria, you can indulge in an all-Italian experience amid the Mediterranean aromas and flavours of our wholesome cooking. From fantastic Lunches, dinners, desserts and coffees to freshly prepared pizzas, pastas, risottos and Italian ice cream to accompany you through the day, at Rigatoni's we offer food that is fresh, tasty and good value for money in a friendly and laid-back environment. We also have Gluten Free Pasta and provide a good selection of Vegetarian dishes. Our Take Away and Delivery service is very popular. Also now we are fully licenced.
