Great dining experience!
Food was fantastic, best Italian food outside Italy. Everyone provided great service, atmosphere was good and the setting, lovely interior.
Perfect time in Contini restaurant, food and athmosphere were fabulous, we highly recommend it!
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.
Excellent venue and food
Lovely warm friendly service, in a beautiful setting. Had a great time, thank you
We used an Itison voucher which was a gift for the two of us and we were given excellent service, prompt, courteous, food was lovely, an overall pleasant experience.
Lovely meal and service excellent. I left a necklace and phoned to ask if it had been found. No reply as yet!
We ate on an Itison deal, had a wonderful meal with great service and will return happily for the normal meal! Well prepared and thought out food.
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.
Had a lovely lunch. Will return soon
Good food, great atmosphere. Lovely dining experience with range of kids from baby to teens. Waiting staff excellent although service a little slow.
Our waitress was lovely but the atmosphere was near non existent
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.
The best restaurant in Edinburgh. Period.
Really enjoyed our lunch!! Will definitely be adding Contini to our list of favourites!!
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!
Food excellent and love very atmosphere. Genuinely Italian.
Food was in satisfieing for the price.
Another lovely evening at Contini - lovely food and a great atmosphere.
Contini was recommended to us and I will be more than happy to pass the love on!
