Not the most famous, but arguably the best, of the outlets of this glitzy Italian brand – a “bustling” and “vibrant” venue, whose “very enjoyable” style make its it one of Bristol’s most consistent performers; seafood is a speciality.

Summary

This seafood-centric Italian in the city-centre is a particularly good outpost of the San Carlo brand, acclaimed for its “superb quality food”; critics can find it a touch “pretentious” and “pricey”, however.
