Honest - Sincere - Simple
I grew up in a large family in Naples, where life revolved around the kitchen table, and now with my own family in Edinburgh we continue this tradition. Locanda de Gusti is a place to relax with friends and family experiencing authentic food made with love and passion.
By importing artisan products from Italy and combining them with the best meat, fish and seafood from Scotland, Locanda de Gusti is able to serve unique and exciting dishes in the tradition of Southern Italy.
Rosario makes the pasta using his own gluten-free recipe.
The desserts are gluten-free too.
Every day, everything is made from scratch.
So there’s always something new to discover each time you visit.
Chef Rosario is passionate about food and grew up in a large family in Naples where life revolved around the kitchen table. He was taught to cook by his mother and aunt who took the young Rosario on their daily trips to the market.
Today Rosario continues these traditions in Edinburgh, serving the authentic Italian food of his childhood, created using the best ingredients available each day
