“Good honest Italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

We have eaten many times at Briscola over the years, less often in recent years, but it never fails to deliver, flavoursome , no nonsense Italian food. The early bird menu is excellent value (we chose this and every dish was beautifully cooked.) the a la cart is very reasonably priced and a new tapas option has no w been added.The specials board offers some interesting, more up market choices so there is plenty to choose from. There is a lively atmosphere and the service was good. The owner has certainly got it right and deserves to do well.

“Great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

Went here on Saturday night for my sisters birthday. The service was great and the staff were very attentive. My sister had the gnocchi from the old menu (they did this for her even though it wasn't on the menu) which was great. The portion sizes were large as well however I had the asparagus and chicken risotto and was a little disappointed. The risotto was quite dry and flavourless however this may just be down to personal choice. Everyone else's meals were delicious. The wine was lovely too however when the bill came they had added a few extra drinks to the bill but when pointed out to a member of staff this was promptly changed. Overall it was a good place to go for Italian food although next time I will be choosing a different meal.

“Yum but, not everything was great.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

I had the Pizza (Le Pizze) which was fantastic. The crust was thin and crispy and the toppings were wonderful. My husband had the exact same pizza but as a calzone and I thought it was a bit watery. He enjoyed it but, personally, I would like it a bit drier. The service was acceptable but, we did have to wait for our table, even with a reservation. I do not mind a short wait but, we ended up waiting around 20 minutes for a table. Other than that the service was efficient.

“Excellent Food”

Four of us for dinner, plus a tiny baby. Staff made us feel so welcome. Excellent choice of specials, vegetarian, meat and fish. Nothing was to much trouble for the smiley, happy waitresses. Looking forward to returning for a 3rd time very soon
