I was at Al Dente twice in one week during my three week visit to Scotland from the USA. My cousin and her boyfriend took me there one evening and I had a wonderful time. Graziano was so friendly and spent time talking with us and made is feel very welcome. The food is absolutely wonderful. I am from the Chicago area and this food rivals any that I have had here in the states. We started with an appetizer of Calamari ripieni.. It was fantastic. The Risotto al radicchio was heavenly!!!! The restaurant is very cozy and warm. I love all the pictures he has around the restaurant. I enjoyed Al Dente so much I asked to go back there for my last evening in Edinburgh. Again we had the same appetizers because I liked them so much and for my main dish I had Cannelloni ripieni. Absolutely wonderful! Both Times we had tiramisu for desert, oh my gosh, the best I ever had. Graziano made me so welcome and again the food was wonderful. I hope to be able to return to Edinburgh and to Al Dente someday. The chef, Stefano, is the best! He came out of the kitchen and chatted with us for a few minutes before leaving for the night. These two are a great combination of owner and chef.
