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.

This was my second visit to Europa and, again, I was not disappointed. Great food, great staff, always willing to make suggestions and offer advice. Good wine selection and ask about their specials as they do have wine that is not on the menu. Highly recommended whether you want to light-bite or full blown meal

Went for my sisters birthday, lovely friendly restaurant and staff. Good service and fabulous food in a really nice environment. We all had a great evening here. They even called a taxi for us when we were leaving due to the rain!

We had been to this restaurant on a couple of occasions in the past and found it to be ok but nothing special - it's obviously under new management now - the service was good, staff were friendly without being over the top, and most of all, the food was very good - we paid £52 for 2 courses and...

We just came across this place, small in comparison to other Italians in the immediate area but this is what makes it better. Staff are very attentive and funny. Food is excellent and hit the spot.

The food was authentic and of great quality. It also offered exceptional value for money. However, I went on Valentines night and the service was poor and slow.
