To find all of these qualities in the centre of Bristol is a major plus. The Europa is just five minutes from the theatre and concert hall and... More

Friends and I went for the first time to try this restaurant out. The staffs were very friendly made us feel so welcome. The food arrived very quickly which is perfect before going to the theatre. The portion of the food is huge and good value for money. But we felt the food was too salty. We were bit disappointed... More

I stumbled across Europa whilst away on business and I'm very glad I did! The atmosphere was lovely and very authentically Italian. Due to my first time eating alone, they made me feel very comfortable. Friendly staff with delicious and authentic Italian food. Will visit again.

My father and I stumbled on this restaurant while looking for a speedy, relatively cheap meal before going to see a show, and were drawn in by the fantastic prices - less than £11 each for two courses. We were met with a smile at the door and enjoyed wonderful customer service, with the enthusiastic Italian waiters going out of... More

Great food and a bargain at £6.50 per person for a side of either Garlic Bread or a Salad with a choice of any of their Pastas or Pizzas. As we pre-order the food came out very quickly. It was all hot and well cooked, which is surprising considering there was about 22 of us in our party. I would... More

A group of us came here for a lunch as a colleague of ours was leaving. We had booked in advance, so seated immediately. I was pleasantly surprised to see the restaurant very busy already. Our food came very quickly, and we paid £6.50 each for the lunch menu which I must say was hearty portions!!! You also get to... More
