Stefano Pieraccini’s Italian restaurant Rico’s Ristorante at 8A North Castle Street Edinburgh opens today. He has created the new 56-cover restaurant and 20-cover bar on the former site of The Honours, which was previously owned by Michelin Star Chef Martin Wishart for 11 years.

Named after his grandfather, Enrico Pieraccini, Rico’s is the latest addition to Stefano’s growing portfolio of restaurants under The Rocca Group and will create 25 local jobs in the city. Stefano’s ambition is to grow his restaurant collection across Scotland and the north of England over the next five years.

The Rocca Group already operates The Broughton on Edinburgh’s Broughton Street, The West Room in Edinburgh’s West End and The Seafood Ristorante in St Andrews.

Said Stefano Pieraccini, “We’re really excited to be putting Rico’s on the map as Edinburgh top destination Italian restaurant.

“We think now is the time to bring something really different to Edinburgh city centre. The venue itself will be stylish, desirable and have a great atmosphere, but I also want it to be somewhere guests know they will get excellent, authentic Italian dishes and warm hospitality.

“It’s a great feeling to be announcing some good news after the trials and tests of the pandemic. We can’t wait to welcome guests to Rico’s from today, 9th July.”
