Sasso Bar & Cucina, formerly The Old Peacock Inn in Edinburgh’s Newhaven, has opened and has been transformed into a stunning Italian restaurant and bar, designed by Michael Dunn’s DBD.

It is owned jointly by Ernesto Crolla – who ran Lazio’s – and Remo and Gianni Margiotta, who ran Caffe Cucina.

Although the original plan was to create a gastro pub called The Mucky Fox, the two decided to combined the trading history of their two former premises in Morningside, and create the new entity that is now Sasso. The name is inspired by the Gran Sasso D’Italia mountain range in Abruzzo, Italy.
