Thoroughly enjoyed our first time at Contini’s. We will definitely be back!!
Food was lovely but prices deceiving as vegetables are extra
Staff were lovely, decor and ambiance great. Food poor and bland, visually looked great, presented well but was really horrible, review based on two starters two mains and two side dishes.
We arrived at 11.30 to have breakfast but were told we were too late. Sort of disappointed but the food was very nice.
Recommended by a friend but very disappointed.
love this place every time we come
Lovely meal after a days shopping.
Our food was delicious and the service was fantastic We will be back !

Wonderful lunch with our daughter. I have been craving the Contadino for months so I was very pleased to satisfy myself! Thank you Contini and especially the manager Alina who looked after us very well. We shall be back soon!
Very nice, and the chicken Milanese was amazing. Huge portion and really really tasty. Will definitely return.
Spinach ricotta ravioli is the best ravioli I've ever had in my entire life. Including in Italy. I prefer it with the marinara sauce, though it's delicious with sage butter, too.

Dear Pauline, Thank you so much for your great review. It is always a pleasure to host you at Contini George Street and we look forward to seeing you again on Saturday! Grazie, Team contini
The ox-tail was the only element that let the meal down due to way too much gnocchi and the ox-tail did not fall off the bone as easily as expected
We had a wonderful evening, with the most fantastic food at an unbelievably good price - thank you
Right from the get go the welcome was very warm, our waitress Claire was very knowledgable and helpful. Good service was very quick and delicious, our food was cooked to perfection. Fantastic range of wines.
Food is always amazing and the staff are all very friendly
An absolute favourite of myself and my daughter for a catch up girls lunch. My 3year old grandson also a big fan of the homemade pasta and tomato sauce, followed by ice cream in a glass!! Staff delightful and so knowledgeable about the food and wine on offer.
Excellent value for money
I expected rather more than a bacon and tomato roll from the filled focaccia described on the Brunch menu. Waiting staff were pleasant however their practise could be improved upon. There were four of us around a square table - rather than them moving to each person to deliver the food, myself and my husband were leant over several times as plates were handed to our fellow diners instead of being placed in front of them. We waited ages for our bill and eventually had to ask for it a second time.
