We are an exciting Southern Italian Restaurant situated on East London Street at the foot of Broughton Street in Edinburgh.
Locanda De Gusti came from the Latin word De Gusti Bus which means 'a matter of taste'. Literally Locanda is a place where you can come and taste good food and wine.
We aim to influence our guests by introducing the true taste of southern Italian cuisine by using only Scottish prime produce served by multi award winning chef Rosario Sartore.

Our “Fai Tu” tasting and sharing menu is a great way to taste different food that sometimes you might not think to order because you are unsure. This is an insight of our artisan menu that we offer and has something for everyone and we have found it is a huge success with diners as they taste, pass and share.
We find once people have tried this fantastic selection of food they always order the “Fai Tu” the next time they come to dine with us as you never know what creation Rosario has made to sample this time around. The "Fai Tu" menu will also suit vegetarians and have an option of gluten free pasta upon request.
Locanda De Gusti offers you the ideal dining experience with the perfect atmosphere. Our function room is also available for hire free of charge.
