Excellent service and we all felt very safe within this restaurant environment. It would be great if all restaurants followed the procedures put in place by the staff and management at Continis.

Everything was lovely and felt very safe. Great job on all COVID protection. Food was delicious. Our only issue was about gluten free options. There was one dessert (panna cotta) which we assumed would be fine but the server was spot on and pointed out it wasn’t gluten free, leaving only ice-cream as a choice. The vegetables also came with breadcrumbs on top. Maybe the menu could be clearer or give more options.

A most enjoyable morning visit, with a welcoming atmosphere and attentive service. There was some confusion with the delivery of my set breakfast, but I put this down to the fact that the staff were still getting used to the "Eat In, Eat Out" menu. The food, as always, was delicious.

Was disappointed that I wasn’t offered the 50% government deal and was charged full price - other restaurants take the discount off as normal.

So good to be back and to experience such a warm welcome from Victor & Carina. Very impressed by the thought given to making the restaurant covid safe. Staff very cheerful and relaxed despite obviously different operating conditions. Great food. Good buzz. 10/10

We enjoyed an excellent meal here on Friday evening. The requirements for covid are clearly explained by staff and the restaurant is very well organised. The food was amazing and we felt well looked after by all the staff we spoke to.

Lovely evening - delicious food and super friendly service as on all previous occasions. Wonderful to be back at Contini, and felt safe and relaxed with the various necessary but unobtrusive changes that they've had to make. Particularly honoured to be personally welcomed by the charming Victor and bid farewell by the delightful Carina! Hope the business thrives in the new circumstances as it fully deserves to do.

Lovely food but was disappointed in service. Ordered a glass of Sauv B and one beer. Waiter arrived with a glass of Gavi and a beer. Later ordered same drinks - waitress/manager arrived with two beers.Both sorted straight away but noticed there had been a mix up with the order of people close by. Also advised foccacia was free of charge but charge £2.00 each for each cover and a 10% service charge. We didn't notice this until later. We left a £5.00 tip! Next time will be more careful in checking bill.

Was nervous dining out at this time. It was clear that a lot of thought and work has gone in to keeping everyone safe. Lots of dividers, exceptionally careful staff and immaculate surroundings. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back. You get what you pay for. Food and service as usual excellent. A class act.

This was our first lunch out since lockdown. The service was excellent as was the food. Whilst the choice was more limited than normal we thought the food was of a higher standard so happy days.
