We sat in the courtyard garden for supper last Friday evening. The service was swift and friendly. The food was amazing, and reasonably priced. The restaurant is clean and bright. The facilities were also very clean. We had a very pleasant evening in Branca, surrounded by happy chatter in this lovely place. We had three main courses, cocktails and wine... More

We went to Branca last Friday. Had to book a table, got a reservation for 9.15pm. Branca was buzzing! Swift, courteous service. We asked for a table outside, the waitress was concerned we may have found it a bit gloomy, she needn't have worried, the outdoor dining area did not disappoint. We were served bread and oil as an appetiser... More

Good food with daily specials. Fresh ingredients, friendly service, and good choice of wines by the glass. Not great but very pleasant. Very nice Provencal rose by the glass

We called in this lovely restaurant/bar in Jericho Oxford last nigh without a booking at 8.45pm following a disastrous experience in another restaurant, Not sure if it was the duty manager we saw but he managed to get us an impromptu table by joining a couple together and we were served almost immediately. The menu is not massive but there... More

A group of six of us went to Branca for a 'boozy lunch'. The weather was beautiful so we sat in the garden. We had a fantastic meal with lots of wine. The staff were attentive and overall we had a fantastic time. Thank you

Food was great, one of the best Italian restaurants I've been. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. While we didn't suit outside, it's very much recommended for a warm sunny day! Good for families, slightly noisy.
