So impressed by the service! Remembered my nut allergy and generously gave us complementary prosecco’s for my husbands birthday. My favorite dinner of our vacation in Scotland. Other popular restaurant (by the castle😉) definitely does not put forth the same effort for a wonderful experience! Thank you!

Absolutely delicious, the "Best of Contini Menu" was thoroughly enjoyed by our party of 11 who are generally a difficult crowd to please. Attentive and very charming service.

Service was fantastic, the girls that served us were friendly and really knew the menu and food. My 2 friends would have liked prawns on the menu, either as a starter or in the seafood pasta they had, but apart from that it was fantastic. I'll be back.

This was our first visit to Contini and we weren’t disappointed. Service was as lovely as the food. This was an Itison promotion and worth every penny. We’ll be back for sure.

Our waiter was extremely informative and explained where exactly the wine, oil and balsamic vinegar came from. Everything was excellent and would recommend to anyone.

We always look forward to our meals in Contini when we pass through Edinburgh. Very good food and wine and excellent service. Like the 'Learn Italian' audio in the loos.

Many thanks for a wonderful evening. We had the sharing menu and the blend of foods was superb. Our waiter was delightful - attentive and knowledgeable. Background noise and music were thankfully subdued which allowed easy conversation across the table and added up to a truly memorable evening. We'll be back!
