Vittoria Group have opened a new 140-cover Italian restaurant on Leith Walk, called Antonietta.
Earlier this year, Vittoria Group announced changes to their pizza delivery brand La Favorita Delivery. Their takeaway site on Leith Walk beside Antonietta was redesigned to match new branding and menus. La Favorita Delivered continues to operate 7 days a week in Edinburgh Central and La Favorita Restaurant is now focusing on takeaway and home delivery.
Antonietta, the new Instagram-friendly eatery, designed by Edinburgh-based Studio So, promises a ‘flamboyant design infused with friendly Italian hospitality while honouring the strong, extroverted, and passionate nature of the much-loved Italians.
Vittoria Group Director Leandro Crolla said, “We have fought with tram works on Leith Walk for years; nevertheless, there is now light at the end of the tunnel as we say goodbye to La Favorita Restaurant after 17 years, we welcome Antonieta – a loud and bold Italian eatery that serves a ‘new look’ neighborhood. The pizzeria brand lives on in our takeaway and home delivery businesses under our La Favorita Delivered, which continues to thrive in the city”.
Studio So was commissioned earlier this Autumn to create a new interior concept for Italian cooking with Antonietta on Leith Walk. Michelle Ridley, Director at Studio So said, “Antonietta’s creative concept was born directly from ‘La Famiglia’. The strong family orientated Italian culture and the deep bonds of family members. We want to stay true to the group’s traditional family roots and warm Italian hospitality, while celebrating the much-loved Italian extroverted, passionate, and bold personality.”
