La Favorita best in ‘bella Scozia’

AN Edinburgh city centre pizzeria has become the first venue in Scotland to be awarded an official stamp of approval for creating a genuine taste of Italy.

La Favorita on Leith Walk, which opened in the capital six years ago, received the award from the Italian Chamber of Commerce for its use of genuine Italian food and drink products and its friendly, relaxed dining atmosphere.
Only four venues from across the UK were awarded the Marchio Ospitalita Italiana kite mark this year, with La Favorita being the only Scots venue to receive the accolade.
Owner Tony Crolla said: “It really reflects what we are trying to create and that’s a true taste of Italy here in Scotland.”
