About Contini George Street
10/10 by Joanna Blythman at the Sunday Herald February 2017
Hitlisted 2017/18 by The List Eating & Drinking Guide
Victor & Carina Contini's flagship Italian restaurant in a grand former Georgian banking hall on George Street. Modern Italian dishes showcasing the very best of Scottish and Italian produce.
Perfect for families. 50 wines by the glass.
Join us for breakfast, lunch, aperitivi and dinner. Open 7 days a week.
We come in every week and have never had a bad experience. The staff are lovely, incredibly well trained, friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend.
Despite an unlucky first experience of Contini’s (there was a power cut which lasted the rest of the evening, so we didn’t get our meal), the service we received was excellent, with plenty of complimentary olives and focaccia to finish our wine. As it was my birthday weekend, we returned the next day instead and had a lovely time. The food was delicious, the atmosphere buzzing but not too loud, and again the service was excellent. When the staff recognised us from the previous evening, they kindly gave us Prosecco to finish off our meal. Overall, a great experience, and we will be returning when we’re next in Edinburgh. Thank you!
Amazing service, food was beautiful
Fabulous service from the moment we arrived. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. Will go back soon.
First time and will be back. Excellent.
Authentic good quality food with a friendly and efficient service
Staff very professional and attentive. Calamari delicious fresh and crispy. Mozzarella lovely and all 3 pastas delicious and perfect portion size. I’ve noticed quite an improvement the last couple of visits as hadn’t been in a little while. Be back soon
Buratta starter was excellent.
One of the best meals of our trip. The cod and the gnocchi were out of this world. An absolutely wonderful experience.
My hearing difficulties make it a bit of a problem....the high ceilings echo noise but staff always try to find me a quuet table and last night they kindly turned down the music. Many thanks for the service and the wonderful food
Fabulous restaurant. Service is amazing and the food is outstanding.
Wonderful waitress, wonderful evening! Thankyou

We had a wonderful lunch at your beautiful restaurant in Edinburgh. The food was wonderful and service very good. Thank you.
Excellent lunch. Superb food, very friendly staff.
We (8 colleagues) were there directly after work and were served a lovely meal from the pre-theatre with drinks. We will definitely be back and can thoroughly recommend Contini.
Excellent lunch at Contini George Street. Wonderful and unexpected!
We were at Contini George Street on Thursday 6 June, the service was friendly, professional and attentive without being intrusive, all the staff make customers feel welcome and comfortable. The food was delicious and the menu well varied, again staff were very helpful in recommendations. Atmosphere very open and elegant without being over the top. I would recommend highly, wonderful dining experience.
Excellent food. Gnocchi and Porcini orecchiette are bet of their kinds. How ever restaurant management capabilities are lacking. In a half empty restaurant we had to sit at a very cramped table, literally our bodies touching neighbors.
The food wasn't great. Quite a limited choice and the pasts we had was a bit like something you would get out of a jar. The anchovies on the bruschetta didn't taste very fresh either. Service was great very friendly but the food needs a bit fo a shake up i think.
Absolutely perfect from start to finish.
