We enjoyed a lovely anniversary dinner at Briscola. The owner was friendly and gracious, and the food was delicious! I had the gnocchi, and my husband had carbonara (the best he's ever had!). The ambience is cheerful and welcoming. We can't wait to go back!

Such a wonderful place for a hump day dinner. We did two courses and shared three mains between the three of us. Flavour, presentation and service was faultless. Highly recommend to anyone. Can’t wait for my next visit!
