La Rusticana

Edinburgh, Edinburgh

Business location

Overview

  • Price: 55000
  • Tenure: Leasehold
  • Business type: Restaurant

First time in nearly 30 years to operate from this popular City Centre site.  A strong trading location adjacent to the HSBC bank on Hanover Street and sitting in a highly visible corner location, fronting on to Hanover Street and with side entrance also on to Thistle Street.

The business has been operated by our clients since 1990 and is an out and out traditional Italian family run restaurant and is one of the few remaining Italian owned and operated businesses in Edinburgh. 

With an unashamedly good Pizza and Pasta offering the business has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with the Edinburgh citizens and tourists alike, consistent in its offering, its welcome and of course its standard of cuisine.

Its central location has been a driver for business and it offers the opportunity for either an existing or new Italian operator to take over the reputation, re-invest and move to another trading level or for a new operator to take full advantage of the trading location with a new venture and prominent positioning of their brand on one of Edinburgh’s most popular dining locations in the city centre. 

Currently trading  5 days from 12noon til 2:00pm then 5:00pm til 10:30pm although it should be noted that the Premises licence allows for 7 day opening from 12 noon to 1am daily.

The current lease operates on the residue of a lease term to 21 January 2029 with a passing rent of £49,000 per annum.  It should be noted that prospective tenants will be asked to prepare information for landlord consent and approval process at time of any offer and we will ask prior to viewing for the detail you will be able to provide.  It would be advisable if this was to include CV/background, details of business currently or previously owned and other relevant information including trade, accountant and landlord references.
