Welcome to Zitto where we hope you enjoy this innovative addition to East Lothian's marvellous eating and drinking experience.
Zitto is an Italian Wine Bar offering over 50 different superb wines, many by the glass and, new to East Lothian, we invite you to try our tasting list where you can "sample" four different 50ml glasses of top quality wines at low cost before deciding which to order. We also specialise in a range of tempting SPUNTINI the delicious Italian improvement on Tapas!
Zitto Wine & Tapas Bar is open all day every day.
In addition Zitto has a family friendly Trattoria (Italian for Bistro) offering a comprehensive, and realistically priced, range of Pizza, Pasta and traditional Italian homemade dishes. Our head chef, Ronnie Clark, was previously head chef at the celebrated, award winning, Umberto's Restaurant in Edinburgh. The Trattoria can be also accessed from the car park to the rear. We prefer the Wine Bar to be over 18's only. Sorry, no dogs, even if they speak Italian.
At Zitto we hope you experience what Italian's call a SOTTOSOPRA sensation, or in Scots, a feeling of TAPSALTEERIE. Have a look at our wine display and you'll understand why!
Zitto's Trattoria is perfect for a realistically priced party night out where the accent is on fun. All our Pasta dishes are available in three sizes including IMMENSO ideal of course for sharing. We can accommodate up to 50.
By the way, Zitto in Italian mean's "shut up"! so "Buon'appetito, mangia, beve e stai Zitto" ( Bon appétit, eat up, drink up, and shut up!)
Giuseppe Cipriani, owner of of Harry's Bar in Venice, created this celebrated wine cocktail around 1934. A favourite of Ernest Hemmingway, Sinclair Lewis, Orson Welles and thousands of visitors to Venice ever since. The original was simply chilled extra dry sparkling Prosecco poured over fresh white peach puree, and is utterly divine.
AT ZITTO WE OFFER A CHOICE OF FOUR TEMPTING BELLINIS
I25ml of chilled extra dry Prosecco Poured over 50ml of fresh pureed PEACH, MANGO, STRAWBERRY or RASPBERRY
APEROL SPRITZ £5.95
The name says it all: Aperol is the perfect aperitif. Bright orange in colour, it has a unique taste, thanks to the secret recipe, which has never been changed, with infusions of selected ingredients including bitter and sweet oranges and many other herbs and roots in perfect proportions. Aperol's strength is in its low-alcohol content of only 11 percent.
