Our first visit to this very popular restaurant. Definitely need to book if you want a table on a Saturday. Saw many people try to come in on the off chance and turned away as full. Also saw many of their regulars come back and warmly greeted by Giuseppe. All the staff were Italian and it was great atmosphere. Food was great and arrived very quickly. Our meal was £63 for 2 people (starter around £8 and main £15, rest was 4 drinks as no desserts). Great start to a fun night.

The staff at Giuseppe's were very attentive and couldn't have done more for our group of three 80-yearolds and myself. Thank you so much - we had a meal to remember before the Bristol Old Vic matinee show!

Guiseppe's is hidden up some steep steps, off Baldwin Street in Bristol (although there is an easier way to get in from St Nicholas Street). It has been around for a long time, which tells you something about the standard of the food and service. There are always interesting and tasty fish specials and a good selection of wine. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The red wine glasses are amazing.

Always love going here. It is definitely a hidden gem! My friends and I went for a works night gathering and they are all very friendly and make a nice effort to make sure everything is ok with the food. All home made so if you don't like and ingredient you don't have to have it added.

Made a reservation here for myself and my wife for our 4th anniversary and the place was perfect. The food and wine was incredible, choosing a main from the fresh fish choices on the specials board. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, just everything made this a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back.
