Visited here based on the high TripAdvisor rating but left disappointed. On a positive note the service was exceptionally good and friendly. The food was acceptable but nothing special although good portion sizes. The 2017 Merlot tasted musty although not quite corked and didn’t improve...More

Ignore the roadworks, hopefully they will eventually finish, and concentrate on the warm welcome, excellent service and wonderful food. A must to eat here if you are in Bristol.

We visited the restaurant as a family of three, myself and my two sons. We ordered three steak dishes, all were delicious. The servers were attentive - all in all a lovely meal and experience, highly recommended!

The decor is a little Spartan and lacking softness. However, the garlic bread starter was excellent, the pasta nicely al dente and the service attentive and timely. Very close to the railway station so useful location. Recommended.

We fancied italian and did a google search and chose this restaurant for its reviews, not its location - a 20 minute walk from our hotel. The staff were great, the food lovely (if a little too much) and value for money. Would definitely come...More
