Menabrea at Contini
Those looking for the most authentic Italian experience at the Edinburgh Festival are in for a treat this August, as we will be teaming up with long established restaurateurs Victor and Corina Contini to create a relaxed, outdoor terrace bar eperience at their signature restaurant Contini Ristorante in the heart of George Street.
Open from 11a.m. to 12a.m. during August the bar offers a bespoke menu of authentic Italian street-style food created by the award winning team at Contini, which will be complimented by both our Bionda and Ambrata lager.
