Disgusting Was told I had to sit inside although outside was pretty much empty. Eventually allowed it. Ordered a vanilla espresso martini, no vanilla. No taste. Off coffee. Then the tuna pizza. Well that was the worst thing I’ve ever seen, eaten. No capers, no...mozzarella, no oregano minimal tuna, just sloppy over cooked burnt bread smothered in what taste like tomato ketchup. Would’ve said if I was meal checked. Waited half an hour walked out & told the manager upon leaving. Non-existent service, terrible food, would never returnMore

We went for for Saturday afternoon dinner On arrival we asked to be seated outside as loads of tables available the waiter declined said we had to sit inside. My partner asked for the tagatelli bolognaise the waitress said the tagatelli has ran out surely...they would stock up this for a weekend. Our food arrived mine was boiling hot still bubbling and cooking in the bowl so obviously this had been microwaved as the bottom of the lasagne was cold. As we ate out food we noticed the waiters and waitresses was talking about us and keeping an eye on us im assuming they thought we was going to do a runner with out paying. Hence why we was not allowed an outside seat. We paid for our crap food knowing if we complained they only warm another dinner in microwave. Absolutely devasted about our visit as Emerson green bristol picollinos is divine. I won't be going back to the cabit circus joint. Ohh aas we left the tables outside was still empty we could had enjoyed our crap food in the sunMore

Booked on line about 6 weeks in advance for a Sunday lunch time. Arrived on time and promptly seated. We had starter of calamari which was lovely and crispy. The king prawns were cold but I thought they would have been better served hot. For...main the carbonara was amazing! For my main I had 3 starters, scallops were ok a little oily. Bruschetta was ok and asparagus which wasn’t quite worth the money but tasted ok. Dessert was good. Overall an ok meal. They still add an optional service charge which I still hate! If it’s optional take it off the bill. Would we return? Yes but only for the carbonaraMore

Firstly the decor of the restaurant is gorgeous I love the green and black vibes, very modern. We were seen to our table straight away. our waiter was very attentive and friendly, I don’t know his name but I know he was Romanian as each...time he came to the table he asked us to try and guess where he was from which was funny. All the dishes and cocktails we had were faultless and very flavourful. I would definitely recommend the Granchino piccantino which was crab with bruschetta I personally love crab so I was very happy with this dish. Also our waiter recommended Cioccolatini for dessert which was chocolate truffles filled with hazelnut liquor (we had them to take away) - they were amazing, a nice light chocolaty treat. If I’m ever in Bristol again I would definitely come back hereMore

The first time we have eaten out in a while. We had scallops and carpaccio to start then lobster pasta and lemon sole main plus a couple bottles of red wine. Would happily have the same again. The food was great and our server Simone...was amazing. We’ll definitely be coming back again soon.More

Thought we would try a post lockdown meal. Should really have waited. Booking was easy and the online system good. Arrived, initially seated looking at the main road, far too noisy and not ideal for a family dinner, server came over then for whatever reason...left without the taking our order. Perhaps with hindsight we should have followed her lead. However someone more senior then appeared, he could see we were not happy, I asked if we could move to a quieter location, he went away sorted the issue and we moved. Very good. We were seated and we ordered. Margarita pizza, Fried chicken, broccoletti, spinach, fries. 2 choc fondants. Glass white wine 2 bottles Peroni and a coke. The mains were really good, hot and tasty. Sides not so good. Broccoli and spinach cold on arrival but the fries were good. Desserts were excellent. No one at any time asked how the meal was, if they had I would have told them. Unfortunately several tables of girls were in and they seemed to warrant more attention from the serving staff. Asked for the bill, it came, £95 seemed a little expensive however my wife said she thought the prices had been increased? I was not sure? Overall the sides let the food down, table service was average. We will return as this may clearly be a one off, however not until we can sit inside.More
