Description: Flawless hospitality. From early morning till late at night. Our award-winning destination restaurant Cucina is the pulsing heart of G&V. Cucina is where you'll find authentic, seasonal, modern cooking. Menus inspired by classic Italian cuisine, with Head Chef Mattia Camorani at the helm. Pushing boundaries, whilst serving the classics. Created with the finest ingredients, freshly prepared with passion. Where the rich flavours of the Italian regions meet in the beautiful G&V surroundings. An exciting selection of wines from the old world to the new, matched perfectly to every course. Flawless, friendly, five star service. Filled with laughter and knowledge. For every occasion whether dressing up or down. A place for special events, for making memories or for doing business. All day, every day.

“Fabulous Italian food”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Our hotel recommended the restaurant as one of the best in the city and it did not disappoint. The staff are super friendly and efficient. I am gluten free and vegetarian but that was no problem. My one criticism would be that the banquet seating can look a little cold and uninviting when the restaurant is empty as it is all one big piece. So when you first walk in the space looks a little stark. As soon as it filled up it was nice. We will definitely be back.

“The ultimate experience for atmosphere, service and flavour!”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Polite, friendly and vibrant staff perfectly match the surroundings and the food. Every detail is impecible, from the welcome to the food, right through to the goodbye. The experience has been so good we have booked a stay at Missoni and meal at Cucina again. Outstanding!

“Cucina bellissima!”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Excellent quality produce, treated with respect, delivered with courtesy and style. Stunning wine list of Italian greats and hip design make this the most exciting dining destination in the city.

We had a truly wonderful meal and would come back regularly if we weren't in Edinburgh only as tourists.

Thanks to the staff for such a great experience!

“great as always”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Consistently great. People wonderful, friendly and professional. Food great (as close to the standard in Locanda Locatelli). Lovely space - to be expected in a Missoni hotel, I suppose. Always a treat.

“Best Italian food in Edinburgh.....”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

So the evening began in the happening bar, just off the lobby... One of the group had Prosecco (on tap in the bar) and the rest of us had fantastic cocktails made by the charming barman.... The restaurant is as stylish as the rest of the hotel with authentic Italian style service. Relatively unusual to still have a sommelier to assist with the choice of wine - fabulous..Request the banquette seating - great for a small group..
