A lovely look place with wonderful food and drink and excellent attentive and friendly staff. Care has obviously been taken on all counts here, food, decor, layout and staff. This place has got to be up there with the best. If you only go here for coffee and cake its a must for anyone visiting Bristol!

Busy restaurant in a great spot. We had breakfast here after an early start. Juice and coffee good quality and water on tables a very welcome touch. Menu was varied and interesting-we all had different things and everyone enjoyed them. Good for a traditional "English" but, for example the BLT was on focaccia bread and had homemade mayo and rocket,... More

This restaurant is opposite one of my old favourite roast venues in Bristol, the Lansdown. I have only had breakfast at the Rosemarino but it was one of the best I have ever tasted. Great welcoming service, quality ingredients and an amazing chef. Very inexpensive considering. Enjoy!

We decided to try the Rosemarino for lunch based on the trip advisor reviews. It is a small, locally run friendly Italian restaurant. It has a bit of a limited lunchtime menu when it comes to pasta but the dishes we had were very tasty. The portion of ciabatta was very generous and we couldn't finish it all. Good place... More

the starter was actually great, they brought warm focaccia with it as well. But when the main arrived, I realized I had the wrong dish, so they told me I would have my couscous in 2 minutes,and my husband sat waiting with his roasted fish until they brought my main. It didn't take long, I mean, I was surprised to... More

I came here with a group of friends a few weeks ago for dinner. Right from the start of the evening it was lovely; service was friendly, helpful, and we valued the waitesses honesty in portion sizes and wine recommendations. We started with the large mixed antipasti, which was plenty to share between four people and a fantastic mix of... More

This small, relaxed restaurant serves the best Italian food. It has a very versatile menu, serving brunch and snacks all day - wonderful Eggs Florentine and full English breakfast with an Italian twist of crispy pancetta. The antipasti are a feast in themselves, many of the cooked meats are imported from the owners' region of Italy - a small plate... More

We ate here on a weeknight, our table was booked for 7pm but we were a little early. We were told that if we ordered food before 7pm we would still catch the early bird deal of 30% off. I thought this was nice of the waiter to point out as we wouldn't of realised otherwise. The place was empty... More

Pretty and atmospheric restaurant. Lovely selection of appetifs to start - I chose an aperol spritz and my partner had the Hugo. The waitress was really friendly, knowledgable and helpful, letting us sample lots of different wines and finding us a delicious Soave. The chef made both my starter (bruschetta) and main (mushroom risotto) especially for me as I'm vegan... More
