Nice people, good service, nice atmosphere, excellent food. The seafood risotto was as good as I've had anywhere. I had a mixed salad with it, which again was excellent. My partner had pollo alla masala with a side dish of peas and bacon, and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also had tiramisu and the banana/rum/cream/ice cream deserts. Wow. We found a... More

Do not be put off by the exterior; once through the door, the decor is that of the high quality restaurant this is. The food is excellent, service prompt and atmosphere cheerful. The pasta and veal I had were outstanding in quality and size of portion. The wine was not quite so good but all was very reasonably priced. Make... More

Booked a table for me and my Mum. Easy to do and we were made very welcome on our arrival despite being a little late. Didn't expect it but the restaurant was full with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The service was quick and the food tasted great. I recommend the mussels and the meatballs. :-)

Whilst staying in Bristol for a couple of days we visited Di Meo and were very glad we did. The restaurant is small and unpretentious but often these are the ones that serve the best food. We enjoyed well-flavoured garlic bread, pizza and pasta dishes followed by desserts & coffee, all of which were freshly cooked and full of taste.... More

I've been there a couple of times and everything tasted very good. Antipasti are of very good quality and pizzas are tasty as well. The atmosphere is very Italian-like, with Italian music being played as well, to the point that you seem to be in the middle of whatever little town in Italy, instead of being on one of the... More

Di Meo is a small friendly Italian restaurant on the bustling Gloucester Road that serves tasty authentic Italian food. I ate there with a party of over 20 at 10.30 on a Friday night and, although they were not able to put us at adjoining tables due to a party lingering on, they accommodated us at two long tables. The... More

Lovely freshly made food from a great selection on the menu. Slight wait between courses when busy but totally worth it! Small and authentic with lovely staff and are on Taste Card during the week which is fab! A go to when we have visiting family from Scotland down. Recommend 100%!

We visit De Meo about every two months and have never been disappointed. The pizza and pasta is really tasty but the steak is always excellent. I have the steak with chips and a lovely dressed salad. The restaurant is owned by two brothers I believe and the one who is front of house is very friendly and helpful (his... More
