About Paolozzi Restaurant and Bar

Experience the best in Italian Scottish food, amazing Edinburgh Beer Factory beers and admire Eduardo Paolozzi art at Paolozzi Restaurant & Bar.

Eduardo Paolozzi was born in Leith, Edinburgh, to Italian immigrant parents in 1924. He went on to launch the Pop Art movement and become a globally influential artist in collage, screenprinting and sculpture. Transforming overlooked, everyday objects into works of art, Paolozzi’s approach was summed up in his idea of revealing the ‘sublime in the everyday’.

Inspired by this philosophy, Edinburgh Beer Factory launched in 2015 with their flagship beer, ‘Paolozzi’ lager. They have since expanded their ‘Paolozzi’ beer series, all of which feature artworks by Eduardo, and make a charitable donation to the Paolozzi Foundation for every beer sold.

Paolozzi Restaurant & Bar is a partnership between Edinburgh Beer Factory and Gino Stornaiuolo, Scots-Italian restaurateur and part-time DJ. We showcase freshly brewed, local beers, Italian Scottish dishes and Eduardo Paolozzi art.

We hope you have a delicious experience here and leave as a fan of one of Scotland’s great unsung heroes!

Looking forward to you joining us at Paolozzi Restaurant & Bar

Very well conceived restaurant concept offering Italian food of a quality that all but a few would not be able to reproduce at home. Great decor and interior design celebrating Edinburgh-raised artist Eduardo Paolozzi offering the great beer range from the eponymous brewery. A strong new entrants to the Edinburgh restaurant scene.

A wonderful safe experience. The staff are so attentive and friendly. The food was exactly what we wanted and it did not disappoint. Tasty and fresh. We even ordered 3 portions of melanzane to take home with the new lockdown happening. I can freeze them and have a little treat for the next couple of weeks. Thank you Gino for keeping everything going in what has been the hardest time to open up a new business.

It’s always good to go somewhere where you know what you are getting. Not that that is an indication of somewhere that isn’t great. On the contrary, knowing you’ll get great service, yummy food and value for money is what makes us want to go back again and again.so, yes we will be back. Thanks to Gino and the team. Keep being sublime in the everyday.
