I ordered the cannelloni with olives on the side. Both were very tasty. The house red was equally tasty, even if the portion size was a little stingy. Eating here after dark, the atmosphere was cosy and comforting. The only drawbacks to this venue are the lack of nearby parking and the sullen young waitress whose facial expressions and stiff...

So we went to Bristol this weekend and stayed at the Hilton Double Tree. We were looking for good nearby restaurants and we stumbled upon this Italian and had a look at the reviews. As Italian is my favourite cuisine we thought we would give it a try. It was a 5 minute walk from the hotel and was busy... More

Personally I think this is best Ristorante that I've visited. Welcoming and friendly staff, a fantastic selection on the A la carte menu and a good selection of specials. Good reports on the fish, it tasted as it was caught only this morning! Portions were large, especially the Pizzas.. wow. The decor is in keeping with most Italian eateries, functional... More

Visited with my sister as part of a Christmas shopping break. Booked late in the day but they were very accommodating and managed to get us a table. Due to the time of year, the interior looked very pretty with fairy lights and candles lit. Certainly had a quaint vibe! The staff were great and had a good knowledge of... More

We went on a Tuesday evening. We found the place to have a nice atmosphere and we were warmly welcomed. There were plenty of things on the menu and as specials. I stuck to garlic bread and pizza. The service was very good and the pizza one of the best I have had. They were happy to make it as... More

The decor is tired, dated and cheap in a completely non-charming way. The food was OK, but I fell I could have made better spaghetti meatballs myself - they were VERY salty and I'm not sensitive to salt usually. The staff were alright but gave us our bill promptly and then totally forgot to come back and get payment, so... More

Visited here based on other reviews. Staff are all very friendly and know the menu really well. The food is fine (my starter was excellent) but the mains (Veal and Duck) lacked any distinct flavour or interest. The surroundings are a tad dated. Plastic table cloths, poor sound system, industrial glass wear but that said everything is delivered well and... More

Went last night. Food was lovely. Had pasta, pizza and starters. Nice wine (would have tried more but see below - didn't get the chance!) BUT once we had for our main we were left a long time with plates on the table. We weren't asked if we wanted more drinks or offered dessert menus, coffee etc. Had to ask... More

After trying to call we left a message to book a table and we were quickly contacted when they had a spare moment. The restaurant is located a bit out of the centre on a main road, so it was a little bit of a walk from the shops on a freezing cold night. But the restaurant was nicely decorated... More
