Have been here a couple of times on various occasions and this place has never failed to disappoint. Good service with friendly and approachable staff, and a good selection of food. The food portions are generous as well.
Drinks are a little expensive.

Had read the reviews and so thought this would be a lovely place to have dinner. So disappointed. The waiter was sullen and seemed resentful that he was even working. The starters were tasty but very small and definitely not worth the price. The main was not hot and the sea bass over cooked. One of the mussels tasted off and so we left them. Then the desserts, which states it is all homemade on the menu, was clearly NOT homemade. Defrosted desserts that were still almost frozen and the meringue, was one that you get in a pack from the supermarket. Squirty aerosol cream and chopped up raw apple as the fruit. A child could have made it. Did have money off once complained but still spoilt the evening. Advice? Waiter needs to be more friendly, chef needs to make sure food is not over cooked and is not possibly off. If you advertise homemade desserts, then make sure they are.

This was the worst night out I've had for a long time.
We had a small party of 7 we had sit at the back of the restaurant in the naughty corner right by the door leading to the outside which was open and staff was constantly in and out making us go hot and cold.
The food came as you can see from the photo there was barely any meat in at all.
The pasta was really salty.
When I complained instead of handling it politely, he just stood up straight squared his shoulders in an aggressive stance, and very Rudely argued with me that there was meat in there (he had already disposed off the plate) so I showed him the photo and he just waved his hands shooing us away the same way you would tell your dog to go away!
None of us enjoyed our meals.
There is a lovely Italian in downend and as a local Hackney driver I've heard many outstanding things about the one in hanham.
Hopefully this review is of help and you consider trying elsewhere so you don't end up with a ruined night and have to grab a kebab on the way home like we did.

Food was good, staff were friendly and it was reasonably priced. Also nice that it's not a chain restaurant. Will definitely visit again.

Been coming here for a few years now whether it's lunch or evening meal they always deliver! Spent another lunch time here with a couple friends (there first time) and we were all over the moon with our food. There is definitely a reason I keep returning here, best Italian in Bristol!!
