We have a shared vision for an innovative Italian dining experience born out of and inspired by the best Osteria, originally a place serving wine and simple food. Eat good, small plate Italian food made from fresh, locally sourced produce, sharing plates and selected mains. Luxurious desserts.
Drink fine and affordable Italian wines, beers and signature cocktails.
LA BOCCA | STOCKBRIDGE
Relaxed, sharing food, fuelling conversation, making every meet-up or meal an event.
This is the La Bocca way.
The Italian way of socialising and eating that we have set out. We serve the best Italian food, but we are very much a local restaurant. We champion local suppliers and producers, and we support local community projects, causes, artists, and people.

Scottish Italian Awards | 2022
Best Newcomer Restaurant
We’re absolutely delighted to have won the coveted Best Newcomer Restaurant at the prestigious Scottish Italian Awards announced at the ceremony on Sunday 29.11.22
After trading for only 5 months to win this award against extremely stiff competition from across the country is truly rewarding and vindicates our vision to deliver an innovative Italian dining experience born out of and inspired by the best Osteria, and to be distinct, unique and innovative in the Scottish market.
A magnificent achievement ….a huge thanks to all our supporters, friends and guests.
LA BOCCA | STOCKBRIDGE
We are passionate and knowledgeable about the food and drink we serve. We speak proudly about its origins, the way it’s sourced, prepared and presented. Our food compares with the very best in Edinburgh or Italy, and we take great pride in that.
Our small plate selection has been carefully curated, and is varied, intriguing and meaningful.
We know Stockbridge and the excellent range of local produce. Our relationships are deep and wide, with the excellent fish, cheese, meat and bread that is available. These feature prominently, with pride, in our menu.
Our boards are a centre piece. Coming together is what we do. With cured meats, Italian cheese, our seasonal anti pasto and signature bread, La Bocca is made for sharing.
EAT WHAT YOU WANT
There are no rules here. Select what you’d like. Share it. Or don’t. Our menu is here to be enjoyed as you wish, in a way that works for you.
SAY WHAT YOU WANT
Conversation fuels La Bocca, aided and abetted by a carefully selected range of Italian wines and beers. Signature cocktails have been created to add to your experience.
WE ARE ALL FRIENDS HERE
As locals ourselves, we value the role we have to play. Honesty at all times, please, and feedback actively encouraged, as we always listen.

Early dinner at La Bocca, first visit. Friendly staff, good food and especially loved the Frittura Imperiale. Tried a new wine and would recommend the Fiano.

My husband and I dined here today. They went above and beyond. I am gluten free, they accommodated my dietary requirements without hesitation. We will definitely return and have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

We’ll be back,
Wow. This hidden gem in Edinburgh is truly worth a visit. A few friends and I came here and it exceeded our expectations. The service was amazing, namely Abbie who was so brilliant and accommodated us with a beautiful table by the window. We had the sharing platter which was delicious. The extensive Italian wine list has something for everyone. The whole atmosphere was so enjoyable. We will definitely be back!
