Victor and Carina Contini have invested £250K to refurbish their flagship Italian restaurant, Contini George Street in Edinburgh.
A ten-day revamp of the 4,500 sq ft former banking hall saw changes to the restaurant’s interior, signage and menu, including new banquette seating in soft grey leather, a softer colour scheme, a more open bar area, and new wall hangings depicting Italian frescos.
The menu now include a focus on small plates and a refreshed wine list and cocktail selection inspired by Italy.
Carina Contini said, “We are really excited to present the new-look Contini George Street, and delighted with the feedback so far from guests old and new.”
The Continis also own Cannonball Restaurant & Bar on The Royal Mile and The Scottish Cafe & Restaurant on Princes Street in Edinburgh.
