We come in every week and have never had a bad experience. The staff are lovely, incredibly well trained, friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend.

Despite an unlucky first experience of Contini’s (there was a power cut which lasted the rest of the evening, so we didn’t get our meal), the service we received was excellent, with plenty of complimentary olives and focaccia to finish our wine. As it was my birthday weekend, we returned the next day instead and had a lovely time. The food was delicious, the atmosphere buzzing but not too loud, and again the service was excellent. When the staff recognised us from the previous evening, they kindly gave us Prosecco to finish off our meal. Overall, a great experience, and we will be returning when we’re next in Edinburgh. Thank you!

One of the best meals of our trip. The cod and the gnocchi were out of this world. An absolutely wonderful experience.

We (8 colleagues) were there directly after work and were served a lovely meal from the pre-theatre with drinks. We will definitely be back and can thoroughly recommend Contini.

We were at Contini George Street on Thursday 6 June, the service was friendly, professional and attentive without being intrusive, all the staff make customers feel welcome and comfortable. The food was delicious and the menu well varied, again staff were very helpful in recommendations. Atmosphere very open and elegant without being over the top. I would recommend highly, wonderful dining experience.

Excellent food. Gnocchi and Porcini orecchiette are bet of their kinds. How ever restaurant management capabilities are lacking. In a half empty restaurant we had to sit at a very cramped table, literally our bodies touching neighbors.

The food wasn't great. Quite a limited choice and the pasts we had was a bit like something you would get out of a jar. The anchovies on the bruschetta didn't taste very fresh either. Service was great very friendly but the food needs a bit fo a shake up i think.
