Exciting New Changes for Contini George Street

This week we are starting a very new, and very exciting, journey for our beautiful Italian Restaurant on George Street.

Over the next ten days, we are carrying out a £250,000 refurbishment that will cover the restaurant interior, signage and – most of all – our food and drink experience.

We will be reopening to the public around the 27th January (subject to the builder’s programme) with a fabulous new restaurant, and delicious new dishes – you’ll still find many of our old favourites on the menu, but served in a very contemporary way. The focus will be on sharing, with delicious dishes cooked to order and served to your table as soon as they are ready.

Our interior will also be dramatically different. More sumptuous booths, a more open airier room, softer colour scheme and our fabulous homage to Italy – our Venus walls.

The Italian Bar will be transformed into a very casual but striking place to sit and enjoy a pre-dinner drink or just a coffee. This area will be casual and informal, with no reservations required.

We are very excited about this new journey and look forward to sharing it with you!

Little teasers will be appearing over the next few days via our social media pages, to give you a sneak peek of the new offering. So keep track of the progress at and on Twitter and Instagram.

All best wishes

Victor, Carina and all the team
