Dine the Social Italian Way

Welcome to Europa Italian Restaurant Bristol

“What is the recipe for success?”   Europa certainly has the answer this authentic Italian Restaurant has been run by Pietro & Teresa Tallo for the last 25 years.  This award winning restaurant is one of the original family run Italian eateries in Bristol’s vibrant food and drinks culture which includes a burgeoning scene of award-winning places to eat, Michelin-starred chefs and food festivals.  However, this top Italian restaurant in central Bristol has proved it’s the best and can stand the test of time by staying current and trendy with endless amounts of passion from its owners.

Europa Italian Restaurant has been re-branded and undergone a major refurbishment; this is the third major refit in the restaurant’s history which has seen off three recessions not to mention three Prime Ministers. Europa now has a very Venetian, rustic, relaxed feel about it which has been achieved by using reclaimed materials which have been sourced locally plus traditional Italian furniture imported direct from Florence which gives the place a unique Italian charm.

Pietro, Teresa and their team serve traditional, honest Italian cuisine at its very best. All our food is freshly prepared to create those wonderful Italian flavours. We use only the finest ingredients; all of our cured meats and Italian produce are sourced direct from Italy and use local suppliers for all our butchery, fish and green grocery needs.

Europa is spread across two floors, the 1st floor restaurant has its own bar and is great for private and corporate functions the main restaurant down stairs has bi-folding windows which open onto Europa’s new Alfresco Dinning area which really makes this Italian restaurant stand out from the crowd. The restaurant is ideally situated near to Bristol Hippodrome and harbourside, between Baldwin Street and Corn Street amongst the beautiful and historical buildings of the “Old City” home to the famous St Nicholas Market, commonly known as St Nicks.

This 5 star rated Italian restaurant speaks for itself serving good, traditional,honest Italian cuisine daily. Europa has been reviewed by hundreds of guest on “Tripadvisor” as the best Italian restaurant in Bristol.

Europa’s ethos is simple – enjoyable, unforgettable, reputation, original, passion, atmosphere and great food.

Some Recent Reviews of Europa Italian Restaurant on Trip Advisor…

Europa has gone through a revamp over the past couple of months, which has changed or shall I say improved the appearance and ambiance of this restaurant. However, there is no change to the welcome from Teresa and Pietro and their staff, which is always warm and friendly. Europa is our favourite restaurant in Bristol, with great value authentic Italian food. If getting it right is an art, then move over Picasso!!David M
First time at the Europa Italian restaurant but won’t be my last. I popped in for dinner about 18:15 and went of the pre-theatre deal £10.95 for two courses and £12.95 for three. I had the Pasta E Fagioli soup for a starter and the pizza with spicy sausage, am and anchovies for the main, washed down with a large bottle of Bulmers cider. Total price £14.95 a real bargain in my opinion as I am quite a big eater and I was stuffed with what I had. The Pasta E Fagioli was super this is the same as the Pasta Fazool Dean Martin sings about in song “That’s Amore”, so naturally I had to have the pizza pie to go with it. The service was excellent from the two gentlemen who looked after me. The restaurant was spotless and the décor was very nice. The a la carte menu looked to have loads of nice choices and the wine menu had plenty of choices as well. I will most definitely be back.John D
Having experienced many Italian and Pizza restaurants from Naples to New York I can say that Europa serves the best Pizza’s I have ever eaten. This combined with the relaxed, welcoming and warm hospitality always extended by the excellent proprietors, Teresa and Pietro, and staff in the authentic Italian surroundings makes every visit a pleasurable and memorable occasion. The recent refurbishment has improved the appearance and ambience of this reasonably priced jewel, and the recently added “specials” are also an exciting addition to Europa’s offerings (I recommend the T Bone Veal Steak if available). I eat in this restaurant most weeks and never have a bad experience. Check it out, you will not be disappointed.Andy545454
