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.

Lovely food and very welcoming!

We came here on 29th August on a very busy Bank Holiday Saturday and had a lovely evening. When we arrived, we were offered a small table to have a drink and we were told we could wait before ordering our food so we could have a bigger table, which was really nice. I can't fault the food one... read more

Six of us with two kids visited this restaurant. It was away from the busy Harbor area. Parking is hard to find close to the restaurant so get there early. Two closer parking lots were full. The menu had many good choices but we selected the pizza and pasta meals. The spaghetti with meat sauce was excellent along with the... More

I can't think how we've not noticed the Europa before but pleased we have now found it! We were great fans of Bottelinos which closed several branches so glad to have found another Italian restaurant which offers such good lunch deals with smiling service .

Found the Europa by accident when on holiday in Bristol last week. Just a nice feel when you walk in , friendly greetings by the staff and the food is 100% Italian. We only had three nights in Bristol but as we had such a good meal and felt "at home" on the first night we went back on the... More

I am a regular visitor to Europa and every time I always have a great meal. I usually have the lunch time deal which represents great value, as the pizza and pasta are fantastic. Service is always friendly and with a smile. This is one of my favourite places to go for lunch in Bristol.
