We came to La Grotta due to a recommendation. The venue is authentic and the staff very attentive. The food was nice but it didn’t really blow us away. There was nothing wrong with this restaurant we just left quite underwhelmed.

A wonderful, friendly welcome and delicious Italian food, especially the pizza. A special occasion for us as it was the eve of our daughter's wedding and our waiter was so kind and sincere in his good wishes. Will definitely return... Grazie mille per una cena...More

First time since reopening and was not disappointed. Probably our favorite restaurant in Bristol. They’ve done so well making the whole place feel very safe. Food was as always perfect and Romeo and team were so welcoming and friendly. Can’t wait to go back.

Everytime we visit Bristol, La Grotta is always a must eat. My favourite is by far the calzone, but their regular pizzaa are a close second. The only downside is how busy it gets at peak meal times, but that's what you get when the...More
