Scotland the Best 2012

January 6, 2012 by

“Fabulous conversion by Victor and Carina Contini of a lofty, pillared Georgian room towards the west end of Edinburgh’s better boulevard into the classiest restaurant on the street and the most stylish joint in town. Passion for food and good service always evident; and they are ubiquitous (although they also run The Scottish Restaurant in Princes St Gardens). Bar and central pizza oven, unexpected combos in a straightforward, oft-changing menu. Great people-watching strip of tabes on the street. 7.30am till LO 10pm (11pm Fri/Sat), 11am-9pm Sun. Bar open late.”

– A recent review from Peter Irvine’s Scotland the Best 2012

Well done team and thanks to all our lovely customers, suppliers and friends for your continued support xx

Terra Madre at Centotre

January 4, 2012 by

We celebrated Slow Food’s Terra Madre.  A celebration of good, clean, fair food that took place all over the world.  Setting up a free tasting and demo stand on George Street, in the snow, on the busiest shopping day of the year and one of the restaurants busiest days of the year – most people would think we were mad.

But have a look at this little video and you’ll see all the fun we had along with our lovely team, Venessa, Veronica and Ryan, our dear Slow Food Friends and lots of new friends who took the time to find out about just a few of the things that get us excited.

September Menus!

September 6, 2011 by

Just in time for Autumn, we’ve got not one by two new menus for you! Join us for Lunch or Dinner and enjoy fresh Scottish ingredients with authentic Italian flavours at centotre

Fresh, Simple, Italian. The very best ingredients simply prepared, served fresh and best enjoyed with family and friends. We take fresh local ingredients from our Scottish larder and add authentic Italian flavours delivered direct from the Milano markets weekly, exclusively for us.

From Scotland this month we’ve sourced new season wood pigeon from Burnside Farm in the Tweed Valley, near Kelso. Burnside is family run farm which has been in the Rutherford family since the 12th century! We’re proud to support a wide range of Scottish suppliers, including Peelham Farm in Foulden for our organic veal, Inverurie Gold for our sirloin steak and Carroll’s Heritage in The Borders for our potatoes.

From Italy we receive pallets of our fresh vegetables, several varieties of tomatoes, Mozzarella di Bufala and Burrata. Our Mozzarella di Bufala comes direct from Mondragone in Campagna, it’s made on a Thursday, delivered to Milan on the Friday and is with us on the Monday. You can’t get any fresher than this. Our Burrata comes on the same route direct from Lecce in Puglia.

Buying direct from both our Scottish and Italian suppliers means we cut out the middle men and the warehouses, and ensures we serve only the freshest produce. It’s also a guaranteed investment in the farms and in their people. These choices are key and have always been at the heart of our love of good food. We hope you can taste all the hard work, enthusiasm and commitment invested in all our lovely food. Buon appetito!
