We didn't book for a table for 2 on a Saturday night, however despite being fully booked, the staff were kind enough to free up a table for us and we couldn't have been more pleased with the quality of both food and service. We would highly recommend the seafood linguine and we will definitely visit again next time we... More

Europa is the place that you want to go to on a Saturday night when you have just had the week from hell. It has the kind of atmoshere that makes you forget everything except having a good time accompanied by great food. I never tire of going back.

All the sauces were watery even my pizza sauce, and the base was also very stiff. The sea food was clearly frozen and not bought fresh that day, and additionally pizza puttanesca is not vegetarian.

We went with our son & girlfriend. The menu said the fish came with chips & salad, or veg and sautéed potatoes. He asked for the salad with sautéed potatoes, but they refused. We asked why & were told it was the owners "policy", which appeared strange. Having consulted another chef tonight, we were told that it was simply them... More

There are lots of Italian restaurants in Bristol but we chose this because it offered a good variety of choice at a reasonable price. We both had pizza which had generous toppings and were well cooked. Friendly staff.

Went for lunch during week, for starter had breaded mozzarella with tomato sauce. Bit soggy but ok. For main course had only thing on menu for pasta- spaghetti with tomato sauce - bit boring really. To be fair my friend thought their fish was great and wine also very good

I was out shopping with my husband, we decided to grab lunch together. We saw this place and on the menu in the window it said that lunch menu is £6.50 for pasta or pizza. Great! So we went in, the waitress gave us a menu and took our drinks order. Then when we actually looked at the menu there... More

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.
