A great evening was had by all of my party thank you all
Good food in great premises with friendly attentive knowledgeable service
Great service and excellent food.
An excellent birthday meal would
Lovely lunch at a reasonable price and service was good. We were a bit cramped with 8 of us on a booth,
We could not have asked for a more special evening - please pass on our warm thanks to your staff. This was our first visit to Contini's and we were celebrating an important birthday. Being new to Edinburgh we were not sure where to go but were drawn by information on the website about handmade pasta. The food was wonderful and did not disappoint. It was beautifully presented (including the children's menu) and our two vegetarians felt well catered for. A special dietary request was also happily accommodated with no fuss. The staff were friendly and attentive, even arranging a surprise birthday dessert. We have found our new 'home' in Edinburgh - we will be back.
Most enjoyable Lunch,well prepared food, with very attentive service
Thank you Lydia and the crew for a wonderful Mother's day meal. The flowers were wonderful and it so rare now to find a restaurant willing to go the extra mile for their customers. Nearly forgot to mention the food which was wonderful! Can't wait to return
We had two lovely evenings last weekend. Cocktails only the first night, but dinner as well the second. Staff and service excellent. Food first class. The atmosphere perfect. It is just an ideal setting and the decor quite stunning. We will return on our next visit to Edinburgh. Well done Contini.
Wonderful atmosphere, beautiful culinary experience and friendly staff. What more to ask?
Interesting interior and enticing menu
We had a great evening, very attentive service, brilliant food and good wine.
Thoroughly enjoyable experience! Very varied menu, authentic dishes and quality produce cooked to perfection. Look forward to returning.
Very pleasant dining experience, friendly helpful staff, perfect.
Was quiet so little atmosphere; staff were very friendly and service was excellent. You are however charging £15 for a breakfast when your chefs can’t simply poach and egg. We both received two over poached eggs, solid yolks... made worse by being joined on the plate with half the water they were cooked in making the rest of the food soggy. Brilliant hot chocolate saved an otherwise disappointing visit.
Please remove this review as the eggs were replaced and coffee offered as a gesture of good will. Kind regards, Alina
Love Contini but very disappointed this time. Waitress couldn't find our booking despite confirming by e mail earlier. Some lovely staff but service patchy. Main course overcooked and doughnuts disappointing. We're then given bill which did not take voucher into account.
The food was excellent and the blend of ingredients were marvellous. Focus was definitely on the food. Enjoyed the Italian lessons in the restrooms.
First visit for lunch. Will be back for dinner!
Food, staff and atmosphere was excellent. Really enjoyed the sharing menu.
Delicious food in a fantastic setting.
Food was excellent but wines were overpriced
Lovely evening enjoyed when we returned to Contini’s Edinburgh. Due to a move north we had not been in 8 years! Food as high quality, wine list very good and service superb. Very accommodating as we visited with our baby and had a pram. Look forward to our next visit!
