Lovely place full of Sardinian charm. Service was excellent as were the staff. The menu was a delight, the wine more so! I feel this will become a regular stop for us when in Bristol.

Came here, by word of mouth, that the set menu was good value. It was simple but well done and included a glass of wine, with the two courses. A short walk from the city center, on a corner by Temple Church. Simple decor, reminded me of a restaurant I've been to in Rome. Will be coming back here again

Staying in Bristol in the Novotel and popped out for a bite to eat and found this little place.... total gem and worth ringing ahead as can get rammed on a Friday or Saturday night. Great Sardinian food.... wine not too expensive and a really lovely vibe...

We met a friend for lunch, and chose this place "on spec", as it was close to her hotel. Good call! It was clean and tidy, with a nice informal upstairs dining room. The staff were friendly and attentive, and knew what they were doing. There is a set menu for lunch, simple but good. Having only a few dishes... More

Being Italian I find that Italian restaurants do not come up to my standard so I generally avoid them! Marco's was an exception: lovely food and lovely staff

I have to start by saying that I have known the marvellous family that own and run this restaurant for more years than I like to remember. This in no way colours my review which would be exactly the same, had I just stumbled upon the place. We went for lunch on a sunny Friday afternoon and the place was... More

Tucked away on a street with no other restaurants it is a wonder anyone finds this place, however on a Tuesday the restaurant was still full all evening. A quaint little Sardinian restaurant with imported ingredients for a truly authentic experience. The staff were lovely when greeting us and helping us choose our dishes. They recommended their favourite dishes and... More
