After trying to call we left a message to book a table and we were quickly contacted when they had a spare moment. The restaurant is located a bit out of the centre on a main road, so it was a little bit of a walk from the shops on a freezing cold night. But the restaurant was nicely decorated... More

Came here straight after work on a Friday and had a lovely time. Attentive and friendly staff, prompt service and tasty food for a reasonable price. Atmosphere was nice and quaint too.

The 2 of us ate from the special lunchtime menu (though many of the dishes also feature on the a la carte). Economical and excellent fare, good service, very drinkable wine - what more could you ask for? In truth the decor is a little tired but in respect of the food we had no complaints whatsoever.

This restaurant has a really traditional feel to it, with the checked tablecloths and old chairs (which aren't very comfy, but fine for a few hours). It's opposite Temple Meads station, so not the most central of restaurants but definitely worth the travel. The food was lovely, olives were lovely marinated in garlic and herbs and the pasta was very... More

I had this restaurant recommended by the receptionist at holiday inn express just 70 yards away on the same side of the busy road into central Bristol. It's opposite temple meads railway station so handy if you are over nighting and traveling on by train. The decor is modern and clean( not a chianti bottle lamp in site) and the... More

I visited here on a Monday late evening with 3 colleagues, aa we were staying in a hotel nearby. It was surprisingly busy as there was a 50th birthday party on. Second visit as came earlier in the year. We were sat on the right hand side of the restaurant which as not as pleasant as the other side but... More

This is our favourite Italian restaurant that we have ever eaten in, the spaghetti Bolognese is the best we have ever tasted, the only downside is the small amount of Ragu sauce and the fact that the seats you sit on are very dated and uncomfortable.

This was our second visit but the first with our guide dog puppy in training. Booking a table was conditional on employees being permitted to make a little fuss of the pup. Before our starters arrived, a delightful cosy basket was made up for him out of cardboard. 5 star service. 5 star food. And, the tastiest temporary bed our... More

Have driven past this restaurant numerous times but because of the location have never ventured to eat there. However on reading the excellent reviews decided to book to give it a try. You certainly can't fault the service - friendly, welcoming and attentive. Wine and drinks are well priced as is the pasta and pizzas although we found the steaks,... More
