Summer (safe) dining at Contini George Street

Wow it feels like our birthday and Christmas has come all at once.  On Wednesday we get to welcome you back to Contini George Street and we’re so very excited to see you.

Many things in all our worlds are different. Be rest assured our Victor welcome; Carlo cuddle (our thank you for supporting us); our commitment to the very best, freshest ingredients simply prepared and served with love hasn’t changed.

But not everything in the restaurant will be as before.  We’re making changes with your health and enjoyment in mind and we’ll be adapting the service to provide a lovely experience while supporting social distancing.  The senior team will be working every shift so please share your thoughts.  We are confident to be able to welcome you back!

Here are our frequently asked questions around our “WE’RE GOOD TO GO” our hospitality industry standard accreditation scheme.  

We’re delighted to be supporting Peelham Farm, Phantassie Organic Eggs, Ethical Fish Company, Campbell Prime Meats, Grahams the Family Dairy, I’Ciacca, Capital, CQS and Carroll’s Heritage Potatoes and many other small local suppliers.   Our kitchen garden as always brings the best Scottish season harvests to our menus with blueberries, broad beans, tangerine sage and of course our courgette flowers featuring this month.
