Visited A Capella few days ago with my husband for a quick dinner as this is our favourite pizza place to go. Staff always friendly and helpful. Very busy, worth to book a table! Will be back soon. Highly recommended!!!

We went for a family birthday meal and were so impressed. Such a lovely atmosphere, kind staff and delicious food. One of us had allergies and they were so accommodating. We would reccommend this place to anyone and will definitely be going again. Thank you.

Am in no way annoyed, but whilst the service was impeccable, wait time on delivery Ok considering busy Friday night, the pizza itself was just a little...soft. We both agreed the dough was slightly underdone and we prefer our pizzas with a little more bite....More

We've been many times over the last 20 years but realised after our recent visit that we've never posted a review. Their pizzas beat those we had in Florence December last year. Highly recommended.

We went to A Capella as a last minute decision & it was perfect. Really excellent pizza & a lovely atmosphere. It was a busy little place but the staff could not have been more charming or helpful. Definitely our new favourite pizza in Bristol.

A Capella is the best pizza in Bristol. Even their bases are amazing, so polishing off the crusts is an absolute pleasure. They have great tapas dishes to start - massive, sweet green olives, dolmades, stuffed peppers etc. - but their pizzas are fantastic. Try...More
