Located in the heart of the city this great independent, local Italian has consistently held its deserved position at the top of the listings as one of Bristol's original and authentic family run restaurants. Europa is 25 years old and has just recently had a face lift - the cosy rustic Venetian style interior is always welcoming and friendly. Europa's ethos is simple - enjoyable, unforgettable, reputation, original, passion, atmosphere and great food.

Amazing food and staff

We loved the restaurant so much after we discovered it for lunch that we booked to go back for dinner too! The owners were so friendly and the food so fresh and delicious :-)

The food is great, although the menu doesn't say all the ingredients that you are going to get. So if you don't like something specific or if you are allergic, be sure to ask before ordering.

We had an excellent lunch, a broad choice of menu at favourable prices, waited on with appropriate attention and humour: good wine too - thoroughly recommend it.

Chose this independent restaurant based on reviews. Was not disappointed. Great service and rapport with customers. Delicious food, generous portions. Sadly no room for dessert! Early booking so we could go on to the theatre so it was not too busy. Highly recommended if you want something more individual than the chain restaurants.

I would like to start by saying that I am disgusted with how management has responded to genuine complaints on here, with their extremely unprofessional manner. I selected this restaurant for my civilised and low key 'Hen Do' celebratory meal based on its trip advisor ratings, and was so upset to discover that this restaurant (despite being city centre), cannot...

My husband and I recently had lunch at Europa. It was a quiet day but the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was hot tasty and plentiful. We really enjoyed it and would recommend it to family and friends.
