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.

Excellent service, delicious food

We ate at Europa before a show at the Hippodrome, which is very close by. We chose from the pre-theatre fixed price menu which was very good value. The service was friendly and efficient, the food arrived promptly and was delicious. No complaints at all.

What a lovely looking... More

We found this place early on a Saturday night, it had a great atmosphere and very friendly staff. We enjoyed great food so returned for a second visit for a birthday celebration and had a great night. Food is excellent, the best seafood pizza I have ever had.

On a visit to Bristol and Bath, we came across by chance this lovely little gem of a restaurant. The setting was beautiful (even with the road works), the meal was great and the service excellent. The owner and his staff were extremely helpful and courteous. When we visit Bristol again, which we will, we will certainly call into this... More

Decent food and great service, staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. 3 courses and a couple of pints of Peroni for around £30.

Having experienced many Itlaian and Pizza restaurants from Naples to New York I can say that Europa serves the best Pizza's I have ever eaten. This combined with the relaxed, welcoming and warm hospitality always extended by the excellent proprietors, Teresa and Pietre, and staff in the authentic Italian suroundings makes every visit a pleasurable and memorable occasion. The recent... More
