Stop here if you want to taste a little bit of Italy. Fantastic quality food and huge choice of real Italian wine. The service is good too, with a smile.

Located in the heart of the city’s new Cultural Quarter (10 minutes from Central station, 5 minutes from Mayflower theatre and West Quay) Momento offers a place for you to have a ‘Moment to yourself’. We have an indoor seating area and an outdoor area in Guildhall Square where you can dine with our Italian comfort food and why not treat yourself to a glass of wine making it a perfect marriage on a lovely day. We have a wide variety of food, with the meat and fish being sourced from the best local producers and we have hand picked our wine list from the best vine yards in Italy. Why not come in and have a Moment….
