Antonio was a lovely waiter😊 Very attentive & good service.
I use here often for both business and pleasure. On Friday the service was slow but the food was good. I think the food is delicious and good value for money in the city centre.
Service was a bit ‘in your face’. We had asked for a quiet table to discuss business matters. The server kept approaching the table and limiting conversation.
Food and wine excellent. Staff were very friendly and attentive but two staff members managed to pour wine from the bottle onto the table, missing the glass. That was disappointing but it’s the only criticism. Maybe a training issue. I’m sure we’ll return soon.
Service was very slow and I had to ask for my bill
An impecable experience in every way. Superb food, in a delightful ambience, served by friendly and attentive staff. We can't wait to come back.
We were expected, warmly welcomed and made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. The food, wine and service were faultless. A little glass of complimentary frizzante appeared immediately to toast my husband’s birthday and his dessert also carried a Happy Birthday greeting. We will certainly be back.
Dear Val, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your experience at Contini George Street and that we managed to help make your husbands birthday a little bit special! Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back very soon. Team Contini
Très bonne cuisine italienne dans un très beau décor. Produits super frais, service impeccable. Et pour une fois les enfants ont droit à autre chose qu’un burger.
We had a lovely three course meal here with an Itison deal. It was our first meal here. The food was gorgeous and the service was excellent. The surroundings were beautiful too. The only disappointment was that our gin cocktail was just an Edinburgh gin liqueur in fizzy water. It tasted a bit bland without the kick of gin or prosecco. I didn't drink mine but the waitress didn't comment when she took it away. My husband didn't think much of his but he did drink it. We ordered wine instead, so it felt like that aspect of the voucher didn't fulfill our expectation, and we felt a little cheated, in what was otherwise an excellent meal.
Dear Julie, Thank you for taking the time to review Contini George street and provide us with some valuable feedback on your dining experience. I am so pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable meal and felt well looked after by our friendly, knowledgeable team. I am sorry to hear that the Edinburgh gin cocktail was not to your taste. It is intended as a light refresher before the start of your meal and your waiter should have explained what the drink contained. I am sorry if this did not happen and you were left underwhelmed. I do hope you choose to dine with us again so we can show you some authentic Italian hospitality. Grazie, Team Contini
My wife and I had an excellent luncheon experience and I have told friends so,that we will return.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch, the food and service were great and the building itself is stunning. I would definitely recommend Contini.
We booked late for the 5 course taster menu. The food was delightful and the service excellent. Venue itself was stunning and old revamped back with large columns. Fully recommend based on our experience.
Dear Dominic, Thank you so much for taking the time to review our restaurant. I am so pleased that you enjoyed our La Dolce Vita 5 course tasting menu. It is a wonderful way to dine which enables you to relax and simply enjoy some delicious food and each others company without the added stress of deciding between our vast array of Italian dishes. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon. Grazie, Team Contini

Had a lovely lunch
I had a lovely lovely lunch with work colleagues we all had 3 courses and everyone enjoyed all of their dishes. There were 2 vegetarians who were happy with the vegetarian options available. The staff were very knowledgeable and attentive. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Delicious food as ever
Another delicious meal, beautifully presented the service was excellent as always. Highly recommended !
We have visited Contini George Street several times, including a family birthday lunch in the private dining suite and have never been disappointed.Our latest experience was no exception and although enhanced by the grand surroundings, the restaurant provides an authentic family Italian/Scottish ambience. Would recommend to tourists and residents alike.
Dear Stuart, Thank you so much for your great review. I am so pleased that you have always had a great time when dining with us and we look forward to hosting you many more times. Thank you again, Grazie, Team Contini
