Edinburgh’s Italian restaurants Vittoria and La Favorita are selling children’s meals for £1 to ease the financial burden on parents who still want to treat their kids to meals out and help raise money for charity. Any child under 12 can eat from the children’s menu for £1 as long as they are accompanied by an adult ordering from the a la carte menu. The restaurants will then donate the £1 to the Forth One and Forth2 Cash for Kids appeal, which helps children with special needs.
Diners at Franco’s bar cafe and restaurant will have a whopping 50 different rose wines to choose from next month. The Italian restaurant in London is extending its wine list to include rose wines from 11 different countries. To celebrate the start of its new list, anyone ordering a bottle of wine or Champagne at Franco`s after 3pm this summer will be given a free antipasto platter to enjoy with it.
