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.

Very expensive for a mediocre meal. Staff were lovely but the meal was very disappointing. Would not go again.

Very good Italian restaurant with authentic taste! The food here is really good and the prices aren't too bad either, drinks are pricey but they always are! They also offer deals when something is going on in the Hippodrome etc so definitely worth a look! The service is also very good, I'm not sure if it's family-run but it certainly... More

We visited Europa on the off chance they would have availability on a busy Saturday night in Bristol. Although the restaurant was full, the lady who met us on arrival went out of her way to find us a table after a short wait. Unfortunately we didn't get her name but she was so friendly and made us feel like... More

Good quality Italian meals served with the aim of allowing diners to eat and arrive at theatre on time. Tell them you are going to a show and if it is not possible to serve you they wont take you in

Honesty is always the best policy! Here at Europa we are renowned for our Pre-Theatre menu, so you can imagine we get very busy when there is a number of shows on in Bristol especially due to our central location. We believe that a night out at the theater or a show should be a relaxed pleasurable evening staring with... More

We visited Europa as a table of 6 prior to watching The Bodyguard at the Hippodrome on Saturday 23rd January at 5:15pm. We were promptly seated by our waiter who was very amusing and asked what we would like to drink while looking at there lovely menu. Orders for starters and Mains were taken and we shared the Antipasti platter,... More
