Even during the busy festival season,we had excellent service and the chance to chat over a lovely meal. We had the festival special and the quality was super and very tasty .
Good menu selection
Wonderful food, relaxed atmosphere and a great place to meet up with friends.
A fantastic family-friendly restaurant, great service and, most importantky, great food.
Enjoyable lunch in one of the banquette seats.
Was a little short of time and I mentioned this to the waiter. The drinks and food arrived quickly allowing me to relax and enjoy my lunch. Was given a very nice table although I was only one person. Will definitely return
Always a pleasure to dine here
My wife and I enjoyed the tasting menu......a wonderful coning experience.
The food was fab particularly the sea bass. Pasta could have been hotter! Service was great. Alison Binnie

Very impressed that a gluten free menu was supplied. Food was of an excellent standard. There was some confusion over my booking but it was sorted out immediately.
Excellent menu with very good selection of desserts which is where I normally start reading!

Service was very poor and slow, food took 40 minutes to come and coffees took far too long also. Ordered more coffees before meal but ended up cancelling them as hadn’t arrived by the time we had finished our breakfast.
The best restaurant in Edinburgh Alistair Moffat
Fabulous food and amazing service.
This would have been 5 stars across the board but was let down by being told at time of ordering that there was no lobster left( at 1800 on a Saturday?) so had pasta Olivia. To my annoyance after finishing my dessert 2 hours later the next table were served lobster ! Called server over to ask why he had told me there was no lobster 2 hours earlier.
Another wonderful evening...thank you all in Contini!
Consistently great service and very good food. Add the wow factor of the venue and it’s a winning combination.
Very impressive architecturally and decoratively. Original twist on Italian cuisine. Very friendly and efficient staff. Prices reasonable for the quality of the food and the presentation.
Favourite restaurant in George Street!!!
Absolutely phenomenal service and wonderful interior. Left a healthy tip to reflect this. Will be back!
Booking and ordering for sixteen people is never going to easy. The courteous staff were not fazed with either even though eight of our party were under sixteen years old. Everyone agreed the food was superb and the surprise birthday cake was delicious . The ambience was further enhanced by the magnificent surroundings. Thanks to you all.
