Contini Cannonball

Restaurants, Scottish Old Town

It blows away the opposition because it’s more than just an Italian restaurant

Victor and Carina Contini are leading lights of the local restaurant scene but their latest venture – launched autumn 2014 – may be the most high-profile yet: an Italian food complex in the 17th century Cannonball House, adjacent to the Castle Esplanade. It’s in the epicentre of Edinburgh tourism and has a basement gelateria and porridge bar, ground floor caffè and upstairs restaurant. Gelato alla cioccolato or a T-bone steak for two? It’s all here.
