Whether you are dining for lunch, dinner or looking for late night entertainment, Machiavelli's is THE PLACE to be in Bristol!! I have never had a disappointing meal here & always have a great time when we visit to see the live entertainment.

Dirty, poor service and vile food! - Never again!!! It was noisy although there were very few patrons, grimy and poor lighting- unappealing in all ways!

Love the make-your-own pizza here. It's tasty and has a nice crust (white or wheat available). Pizzas are featured in 10" and 13" (?) sizes. Machiavelli's offers lots of gourmet topping choices except for grilled eggplant. I found that surprising. The kids' menu is adequate and includes a drink and dessert. Service was passable. Being new isn't an excuse for... More

TRY THEIR ITALIAN NACHOS! We love Machiavelli's. Great food (especially their Italian Nachos), a large eclectic assortment of beers (over 50 I think), and live music (which Bristol is becoming known for). Machiavelli's atmosphere is unique and very comfortable... oh, and did I mention how GREAT, TERRIFIC, and WONDERFUL their Italian Nachos are?

Using prices and the quality of food, Machiavelli's passes the test. Service was good and the pizza was delightful!

This is one of those restaurants where the service and food truly depend on the day you visit. I've been there and had great service and delicious pizza. But, I've also visited and had borderline surly service and average food. They make their pizza dough and it is good. But, the topping amounts vary at each visit. And, their pasta... More
