Europa Italian Restaurant is one of the last family run independent restaurants in the very heart of Bristol; owned for the last 22 years by a local couple Pietro and Teresa Tallo. Pietro has a very traditional approach to managing his restaurant and hand picks fresh ingredients to create truly amazing dishes. Pietro is often at the local markets early in the mornings selecting only the very best for his restaurant and even bakes his own bread on the premises.
Europa Italian Restaurant aim to bring our customers freshly prepared Italian cooking at its best, our portions are large and our prices are reasonable; what more could you want! Taking the freshest produce available we create incredible freshly cooked pizzas and pasta dishes. Alongside our meat, fish and chicken the choice is wide but carefully chosen to present authentic Italian cuisine. Take a look at the menus on this site. There are also daily specials to choose from plus an extensive wine list.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
When we opened Europa Italian Restaurant 22 years ago our goal was to have customers compare us to Italian restaurants in Italy, not Bristol. We wanted our customers to experience good authentic Italian cooking just like “Mama use to make” right here.
Good Italian cuisine uses only the freshest ingredients. That’s why we prepare our sauces and breads daily. We use only San Marzano tomatoes for our sauces and pizzas. And talking of our pizzas, we prepare them to DOC standard, using Oro di Macina ‘0’ grade flour; which makes all our pizzas more fragrant and tasty, thin and crispy plus more easily digestible, extra virgin olive oil and Fior di Latte mozzarella – add our passion and skill and this is probably why they win awards.
In short, we’re passionate about what we do. We love what we do and we want others to share our enthusiasm. We want you to come and have a great eating out experience. It really is as simple as that. So now we’ve told you what Europa Italian Restaurant is all about, why not head down to the heart of the City and find out for yourself.
