There were three of us in the party. On arrival we had a very warm greeting from all the staff. and were shown straight to your table. The restaurant was busy with a good New Year's Eve atmosphere. Order for drinks was taken very quickly...and they arrived quickly. Food order - starter and main course was again taken very quickly. When the food arrved it was well cooked and hot! The service was first class particularly from Koli, Manager and Waiter.More

We had a family meal this week. What a wonderful experience with lovely food and really friendly service from the manager Koli. Three of us had calamari to start and I had lovely home made soup. For main courses two of us had steak. One...fillet and one sirloin and we both said independently that they were the nicest steaks we had ever had. We ordered them medium rare and they were cooked perfectly and were very tender and tasty. The two girls had pasta which they also enjoyed a lot. We enjoyed a nice bottle of Primitivo to drink with the steaks. We will be back again soon. Thank you to Koli and the team.More

I was very impressed with my meal here with my family this Saturday, we had the seafood pizza and it was the best I have ever had. My wife had the pasta and it was amazing too. Food is clearly prepared fresh and the atmosphere...is lovely too. Definitely one of the best Pizza's I have had and will be returning here for sure !More

We always come here for a special event with my family who travel from Wales! We moved nearby recently and have always been so welcomed and in particular as my partner is GF! Their pasta and mains are amazing, and it has such a wonderfully...family run atmosphere. We come back here time and time again, often serviced by Koli who never fails to recognise me and my family and ensure we're well caterered for!More

Myself and my husband visited here lunchtime to celebrate our anniversary. The service was excellent and the food outstanding! There was so much choice we have to return to try the rest of the menu!!!

I’ve been wanting to try this restaurant for ages so I thought I would order a lasagne to takeaway. I opened the container to be presented with a burnt lasagne. It tasted awful and I had to throw it away. I defiantly wouldn’t recommend this...dish. I have made a complaint to the restaurant and I’m awaiting a reply. Defiantly would never go back.More

I have this evening enjoyed a delightful meal with friends at Al Fresco, Stoke Lane, Westbury-on-Trym. The service was very friendly and helpful. I had the tagliatelle in a delicious sauce. It was more than ample - so much so that I couldn't manage a...dessert. I had a large glass of wine and a hot chocolate afterwards and the total cost was under £25.More

I have visited this restaurant several times now and each time the food has been above average in taste, quality and quantity and the service is always excellent. The waiting staff are so cheerful and pleasant and it is a pleasure to dine there. I...take my visitors to Bristol here for a relaxed and extremely pleasant evening, with great food at a reasonable price. It is easy to get to and there is absolutely no problem in parking very near to the venue. I would highly recommend a visit!More
