Located on Lothian road, Frizzante is one of the stand-outs on the busy West End Street. Priding itself on quality Mediterranean & Neapolitan cuisine, this chic little restaurant also offers a wide range of options for celiacs and vegetarians. Frizzante has actually won an award for gluten-free catering and was a finalist last year in the Scottish Italian Awards for “Best family restaurant.” A nice relaxed ambiance, friendly staff and steeped in history, Frizzante is a must if you’re in the vicinity.
Popular amongst pre-theatre diners, Frizzante in the West End is a contemporary and classy place. We love the blend of exposed brickwork with modern booth-style seating and plenty of greenery – it’s a beautiful place to dine. Food-wise, the team embrace vegetarian and gluten-free diners, and everyone else too – it’s a seriously friendly place with plenty of choice. The pizzas are fantastic, but for us, their homemade lasagne, oozing with cheese and bechamel sauce, is hard to beat.
