The Valvona & Crolla Caffè Bar has earned the reputation as the place to eat authentic Italian home cooking.
The Valvona & Crolla Caffè Bar, opened in 1996, has earned the reputation as the place to eat authentic Italian home cooking. The style of cooking is derived from recipes handed down within the family and is based on fresh, seasonal and a daily changing menu.
The Caffè Bar is open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week and is an ideal place to relax in the afternoon. It opens for dinner during the Edinburgh International Festival and is available for private functions.
In 2014, restaurant critic AA Gill commented in The Sunday Times :
‘the Caffe arm of Scotland’s oldest Italian deli serves up Italian favourites using the best ingredients’.
Listed each year in the ‘Which Good Food Guide’ and with 3 ‘ticks’ in Pete Irvine’s Scotland the Best, Valvona & Crolla is recognised as ‘Among the best of its type in the world and Simply Unique… the family of Valvona & Crolla strive daily to maintain a customer experience to match expectations.’
