“Excellent lunch”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

With so many good places to eat in Bath it is sometimes difficult to decide which restaurant to visit. After so long since our last visit we decided to try Joya as it is linked to another very good restaurant which we had tried recently - the Real Italian Pizza Company. We were very glad we did!! The menu is extensive and all five of us selected different starters and main courses. All of the food was of the highest quality and very tasty. Despite the generous portions, we also managed desserts which were great. The excellent food was matched by the very friendly service. I will definitely be frequenting this restaurant again in the very near future!!

“Fantastic lunch”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We are local to the bath area and took our 3 kids here for lunch today. All the dishes were superb;fillet steak, pizzas, delicious homemade ravioli with truffle sauce and divine desserts. Service was really friendly and warm. Cost was very reasonable and we would definately recommend this gem of a place. It's great to have decent, quality independent places in Bath. Thank you Joya, we will be back for sure.

“Good Italian food - great cocktails”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

My husband and I ate here during our 2 night stay in Bath in October. There are too many places to eat in Bath but we stumbled upon Joya, which is near Pulteney Bridge, and we are glad we did. We started with some Prosecco cocktails - peach and raspberry bellinis. These were deicious and really well priced. We followed this with panzerottini (pizza dough balls filled with tomato and mozzarella) which were very tasty. I then opted for the vegetarian lasagne whilst my husband had the vegetarian pizza. Again both meals were very tasty. The location of the restaurant was really handy for us and had a nice ambience. The food was lovely and well priced. The service was also good. We would consider eating here again in future.

“A real treat!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Visited Joya back in the summer for our wedding anniversary. The food, service and ambience was just great - very attentive staff, lovely authentic Italian food and a great bottle of Friscati! Very nicely decorated restaurant with a great view of the river!

We enjoyed it so much that we are planning a return visit around Christmas with a group of friends.
Thank you
