tipo, named after the finest grade of flour in Italy most commonly used for making pasta, will be a casual dining restaurant serving small plates with a focus on the house-prepared speciality ingredients such as fresh pasta, cured and aged charcuterie alongside cocktails and small domaine, artisanal family-owned wineries.

A family affair, at the helm will be Stuart’s brother Scott who was previously executive chef with Compass Group Edinburgh. Plenty of natural wood throughout the restaurant aims to give a cosy, inviting vibe situated across one level as well as bar seats ideal for solo dining.

On the new opening Stuart said, ‘Jade and I have been talking about a new restaurant for a long time and it’s taken us a while to find the perfect location. We want to offer a neighbourhood style restaurant that will focus on simple pastas, dishes to share and vegetables prepared in ways you’d find in Europe alongside artisanal wines.’
