“Excellent Italian place in a good setting”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Joya was recommended to us by GK, a charismatic barman at Bailbrook House Hotel, and we never regretted following his advice. Antipasti for sharing were good, but so where calamari rings and king prawns, The mains also did not disappoint - great fillet steak, very good fish, and an impressive pizza. Beware - wine selection is essentially all Italian, which is not necessarily a bad thing - just requires a slightly more specialized knowledge.

“Great little Italian restaurant”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

A lovely little Italian restaurant close to the river in Bath. We had a great meal there during a recent visit to Bath - so good we went back the next night and had another good meal. Staff were very friendly and helpful while the food was excellent and good value for money.

“Authentic Italian cuisine”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled across this small restaurant & were enticed in out of the rain by the warm looking atmosphere! We weren't disappointed! The waiters were friendly & efficient, the atmosphere was lively but not OTT and most importantly the food was great! We shared an antipasti platter then had a pizza each... And waddled out the door!! Very reasonably priced authentic quality food, about £45 for food & beers for two of us.
