A new cocktail bar celebrating the negroni is arriving in Edinburgh

Situated in the capital’s New Town, Ciao is set to open in November

Partial to a skilfully concocted negroni? Then say hello to Ciao – the new cicchetti & cocktail bar opening next month. Bringing some alluring Tuscan flavour to Edinburgh’s New Town, the venue is set within Rico’s Ristorante on North Castle Street.

As well as celebrating Italy’s famous negroni cocktail (with a full list of variations on the classic to choose from), cicchetti small dishes will be available all day. The 26-seat venue will be open five days a week from Tuesday to Saturday, and will also offer a lunch menu with two courses for £15 and three courses for £20.

Ciao is part of restaurant entrepreneur Stefano Pieraccini’s Rocca Group, which includes Rico’s Ristorante, The Broughton on Edinburgh’s Broughton Street, and The Seafood Ristorante in St Andrews. All three of Rocca’s restaurants are included in this year’s Michelin Guide.
