Our menu changes daily sharing the best seasonal ingredients that we import directly from the markets in Italy.

Homemade pasta is a speciality. Fresh Scottish fish and shellfish are always on our menu.

Our breakfasts are also legendary.

CGS Chicken

Phenomenal food in gorgeous surroundings!

Some of the best food we ever had during our visit in Edinburgh. All of it coming from the most local of Scottish producers! Staff couldn't have done more and were an absolute delight to converse with, particularly Jack who was a great guide to the city. Special highlights included the venison and the scallops... Can't wait to come back again in the future!

Our iconic Contadino pasta, with our own recipe spicy sausage, porcini and cremini mushrooms, fresh orecchiette pasta bought direct from Puglia, cream and Parmigiano Reggiano has been on the menu since the day we opened.

Care and attention to detail surrounding every dish from our Ramsay’s of Carluke bacon focaccia with warm unsalted butter gives everyone a reason to join us from breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Contini George Street Main Dining Room 28-12

Favourite Italian Restaurant

Described as one of the most beautiful rooms in Edinburgh, our former 19th century banking hall creates a stunning setting to dine.

26ft high ceilings and corinthian columns surround the dining room but the warm grey tones and iconic wall coverings make our restaurant cosy and fun.

Big picture frame windows, soft chandelier lighting, jazz music playing in the background, a warm welcome and cosy booths for couples or for larger groups we welcome all.

Sharing fabulous fresh seasonal food inspired by the regions of Italy, Contini George Street is Edinburgh’s favourite Italian.

The restaurant is fun and busy [or buzzy].

The scale of the room is spacious and airy. Each table makes you feel comfortable and gives a great view of the dining room. Our terrace, open in the summer, is the perfect place for people watching.
