    Edinburgh Castle is also the home of the One O'Clock Gun. This is fired every day except Sunday at precisely 1.00pm to provide everyone with an accurate check for their clocks and watches. It will certainly startle you if you are anywhere near the Castle at that moment!
    Not this one unfortunately...:-)

    Zucca.

    by wandabendik Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Zucca is a stylish restaurant serving traditional Italian fare.
    The carefully thought out menu focuses on locally sourced produce from Edinburgh’s Farmers market.You can dine inside or out.
    Special offers on top table 2 for 1 on main courses.
    2 courses £13.95.
    We were seated upstairs, the ambience of the resturant was cosy, very nice for an intimate pre theatre dinner.
    Food was really nice a good find.

    Favorite Dish: Signature dishes include gnocchi with goat’s cheese, pesto and home-dried tomatoes; bolognese made with buffalo meat sourced from Fife’s Puddledub Farm; lamb stew made with meat sourced from the Hamilton’s farm in the Pentland hills; and a variety of seasonal risottos that reflect the chefs’ creativity. The menu showcases various other dishes ranging from the classical to the most innovative combination all based on a Mediterranean theme. There is also an impressive wine list offering the best each Italian region has to offer.

    The Cavendish ( new name change Diva!) or The Dish as its known to us locals is a fab nightvlub to go to for a great night out as it has people of all ranges dancing their asses off and having a great time, great mix of music happens here, its situated in the Tollcross area of Edinburgh (west end), and is easily reached from The Grassmarket area.

    Dress Code: Classy not trashy, usual clubbing gear lads NO TRAINERS wear trainers or sweat tops and you wont get in!
