Our beautiful, vibrant and buzzy Italian restaurant is situated in one of Edinburgh’s most beautiful rooms. This former banking hall is modelled on a Florentine Palazzo and delivers every-thing you want from a fabulous, authentic and contemporary Italian restaurant.

We source our produce direct from the markets in Italy and change our menus with the seasons with homemade pasta and delicious Puglian focaccia made fresh every morning. Our food is perfect for sharing. Discover our ‘Best of Contini’ menu, which is perfectly designed for sharing with your fellow diners. Our 6 Course Tasting Menu is the best way to sample a true Italian feast.

For very special celebrations we offer exclusive use of Contini George Street for up to 96 guests. Our majestic Georgian ex banking hall offers the WOW-factor to truly amaze your guests. Our Bellavista private dining room, located in the former bank vaults, can be hired for parties of up to 16 guests.

Why not arrange for a pre-dinner aperitivo in the Italian Bar before moving to dinner?

The Italian Bar is available for hire as a standing reception venue in the heart of the New Town. A beautiful and relaxed space,
perfect for a pre-dinner drinks reception, leaving party, book launch or any informal celebration. Enjoy a selection of crostini or
mini bowls while sipping from delicious cocktails, prosecco and fine italian wines. Available for canape and drinks reception for up to 40 guests.
