It's not your typical Italian with a few pasta dishes and a pizza menu, they've gone a long way to ensure that the meals on offer are kept interesting. We had a veggie deli board to start with which was delicious and generously portioned. We also had some bruschetta. When the meals arrived they weren't huge but there was enough... More

Lovely menu with lots of variety. We went for lunch but will definitely return to try breakfast. The service was good and ambience perfectly balanced.

My fiancé and I went for dinner to Rosemarino in the middle of the week and discovered that they have an appetising discount of 30% on the food between 6 and 7pm. It was all going all right with a massive tasty fishy starter until they brought my main meal. It was monkfish tails wrapped in bacon with cherry tomatoes,... More

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
