Do you know the three signs of a really good restaurant?

The first is busy tables. The second is the delicious smells wafting from the door.

And the third is a 10/10 score from food critic Joanna Blythman of the Sunday Herald.

Contini George Street is one restaurant that can boast an enthusiastic thumbs up from Ms. Blythman. And now you can try out the delicious Italian cuisine for yourself with today’s Big Deal on two or three courses for two.

Now, who do you know that would love this first class dining treat as a Christmas gift…?

Impressive Italian restaurant

Contini is a bustling and central dining spot based in an atmospheric Georgian Hall. It has always been an impressive setting to enjoy a meal in, but since its £250K makeover in 2017, it is now more swish than ever.

This Big Deal is for a meal for two from the a la carte menu. Option one is for a two course meal and option two is for three courses plus an Edinburgh Gin cocktail each.

This offer is available seven days a week for lunch and dinner.

You can enjoy your meal up until 30th March 2019. And as you can buy multiples, why not turn this into a group get-together, maybe before heading to a show?

Stunning interior

If you want an extra special, extra romantic setting for a meal, then make a beeline for Contini. The gorgeous decor means that it is the perfect place to take out-of-town visitors or celebrate a birthday or anniversary.

The revamped interior includes Baroque frescos, banquette seating in soft grey leather and a stylish open bar area with chandelier lighting, as well as original Georgian columns.

In other words, it is the perfect place to sit back, sip an Edinburgh Gin Cocktail and peruse the menu of seasonal Italian favourites.

If you are travelling into the city, then Contini is just a 15-minute walk from Waverley station.

A la carte dining

Contini showcases the very best Italian ingredients and the pick of Scotland’s larder.

Choices change seasonally, but typical starters might be the bruschetta with chargrilled rustic bread and oregano marinated San Marzano tomatoes, creamed mascarpone, salted anchovy and parsley or the crispy arancini (risotto balls) with Hebridean Blue, mascarpone and warm tomato sugo.

For your main course you could choose the branzino, chargrilled sea bass with pachino tomatoes, spinach and taggiasca olives or the salsicce, spicy grilled Italian sausages with seasonal roasted vegetables, pickled peats and nduja.

Desserts may feature the classic tiramisu with fresh organic eggs and mascarpone cream or the cioccolato, dark chocolate torte with whipped creme fraiche and hazelnut praline.

We’re going for the arancini balls followed by the spaghettini then the tiramisu to finish. You?

Happy guests

Contini has an impressive overall score of 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor and has been garnering rave reviews. Here is a recent selection:

‘Wow! From the moment we walked in the staff were amazing! Professional and polite. The food was absolutely fantastic. I’d definitely recommend the steak which my boyfriend and I really enjoyed. It was cooked to match our different preferences in steak. The starters were also delightful and I’m definitely going back for the calamari next time. Fabulous work guys and thanks again for the wonderful experience!’

‘Fantastic. Been in for dinner on Tuesday. We had lovely time from start to finish. Staff were professional and knowledgeable, food was great too. Our server was Anna, very helpful and friendly. Good atmosphere, good value. Thank you.’

‘Absolutely amazing service. Me and my husband have just left after what can only be described as an amazing meal, from the moment we walked in the door to be greeted by the host to the final farewell (which most places don’t bother with). Francesco our waiter could not have been any more helpful, he talked us through how the menu works along with great recommendations and even offered to pair the wines with each course for us. Every single member of the team were very helpful, warm and welcoming. Will definitely recommend to all my friends and family in a heartbeat. Great value for money, lovely clean exterior, music at just the right level.’
