We have eaten at Bocca Bar several times and have enjoyed every occasion, however last Friday night we could not get a table for 2 as they were fully booked. If you want to make sure of a table on say a Friday or Saturday you may be best to phone in advance to check availability. A very popular venue.

Not going to lie I go here purely for the pizza! They are so good and there are so many different types to choose from including vegetarian. They average about £11 a pizza but they are a good size and could be shared between 2. The drinks are a little fussy for some people and maybe a bit pricey but... More

Family friendly, comfy, chill out bar that turns to a buzzing night life. Food is good (most of the time) with a good selection of drinks. Nice for all occasions.

A birthday celebration with friends, a really relaxing & chilled bar. Love the atmosphere with comfy sofas & a great acoustic duo playing great music to add to the ambiance. A great place to have in Brislington!

Best piozza we have ever had. The slate platter was delicious. Sweets expensive and Vanilla Brownie was far too hard.

This place has a lively atmosphere with comfy, chilled out decor and great food. We were attracted by the family friendly attitude (Kids are welcome until 9.30pm) and the great selection of pizza on offer. Our first visit was on a friday night when the place was busy with the after work crowd as well as regular diners. Despite being... More

My partner visited Bocca Bar after reading interesting reviews online. The atmosphere was very warm and welcoming and the decor was lovely. We bought a couple of beers and the most delicious nuts I have tasted! Unfortunately the staff made us a bit uncomfortable as they were bickering. One barman was not fully pulling his weight and was sat behind... More
