With two stylish restaurants in Bristol, one on lively Whiteladies Road and the other in picturesque Clifton Village, Bosco Pizzeria’s unique offering of regional Italian gastronomy and traditional wood-fired dishes is worth stopping for. Both of these inviting, spacious restaurants achieve a seamless blend of contemporary and classic styling that speaks to a broad range of diners.
As you settle down at your table, you’ll notice the high-energy atmosphere and buzz of chatter that affords the venue a social, welcoming feel. The friendly staff contribute to the ambience by being as unobtrusive as possible, while achieving a consistently high level of efficiency. They’re particularly informed when it comes to wine pairings, which comes in handy when the extensive menu of regional Italian varieties has you spoilt for choice.
Famed for its classic, Neapolitan-style pizzas, which are all cooked to perfection at 400 degrees in the wood-fired oven, the team at Bosco prides itself on making use of this traditional cooking method as much as possible.
All of Bosco’s delectable dishes are homemade and inspired by traditional recipes from all over Italy. For a beautiful seafood starter, plump for the Sicilian-style octopus with datterino tomatoes, garlic, coriander and chilli – an authentic Mediterranean treat. Perhaps you’ll follow with the porchetta: Middle White pork, slow-cooked the Italian way, and served with mostarda and crackling. This hearty main is best paired with a light red wine such as the 2014 pinot nero, which hails from La Tunella winery in Friuli.
For dessert, try the sumptuous zeppole, Italian-style doughnuts served with lemon curd – a wonderful end to a memorable dining experience. With its unrivalled quality of food and jovial atmosphere, Bosco Pizzeria is the perfect choice for special occasions as well as relaxed family dinners. The team’s commitment to honest, faithfully authentic cuisine truly sets it apart and ensures that all customers leave smiling.
