A culinary landmark in Bristol, Giuseppe's serves time-honoured Italian cuisine with ample Mediterranean charm. Using fresh, artisanal ingredients, Italian chefs craft a repertoire of perfected favourite recipes, including fresh pasta dishes, succulent meat cuts with wholesome accompaniments, and crisp pizzas served straight from the oven. Bathed in candlelight and dotted with impeccably lain tables, Guiseppe's is perched on the edge of the historic St Nicholas Market for the perfect pitstop during or after shopping or sightseeing.
If you’re here for the pizza then you’ll be able to take your pick from a line-up that includes all the favourites (think Margherita, Quattro Formaggi and Marinara) as well as some more unusual house specials like the Giuseppe, which sees the wood-fired base topped with Parma ham, rocket, Parmesan shavings, mozzarella and tomato. Bulk out your choice of slices with a green or mixed salad, or even some chips or sautéed potatoes if you fancy a bit more of a treat.
Pastas include cult-classics like lasagne, Bolognese and carbonara, plus a rich salmon serve in a creamy sauce and a wonderfully smoky tomato and pancetta combination stirred through penne pieces.
As with all good Italian restaurants there’s a well thought through wine list that encompasses various red, whites and roses as well as a range of fizz that will help you wash your meal down. If you prefer there are also plenty of spirts to choose from, and a complete set of softs.
Kind and knowledgeable staff ensure the atmosphere is always family-friendly and fast-paced, with the team on hand to make recommendations and suggestions should you need them to. The laidback dining room is classically decked out and neutral enough to not feel stuffy while also ensuring all guests feel relaxed and comfortable in their temporary surrounds. Events can also be catered for, should you wish to throw a party or group dinner here.
