Over 40 years ago Giuseppe came to England to realise his life-long dream of opening a traditional Italian restaurant in Bristol. Now his son Mike has ably taken the reins, continuing to bring the very best of home-cooked authentic Italian cuisine to the UK. The recipes have been passed down through the generations to Mike's mother's kitchen, and are now used in Bottelino's.

The restaurant uses top-quality ingredients and locally sourced meat and fish to present a menu of dishes that burst with flavour and colour. To start, why not try mussels in a white wine sauce with garlic, cream and shallots, or arancini with spicy sausage and chilli sauce. For the main course, you'll find a broad range of pizza, pasta and risotto. Pasta dishes are prepared traditionally so you can expect classic dishes done right - the penne alla matriciana is fresh and filling, with local bacon, mushrooms and onion in a tomato sauce. The orecchiette della casa is a heartier dish perfect for a wintery evening - the wholesome Italian meatballs smothered in a red wine and tomato sauce will warm even the coldest of cockles. If you're leaning more towards pizza, you're in for a treat - hand-stretched stone-baked pizzas are topped with fresh ingredients like ham, pineapple and mozzarella, though there's plenty to choose from if you opt to build your own. The menu also boasts a selection of fish and meat dishes, such as a sirloin steak cooked to perfection and chicken marinated in lemon, rosemary and garlic, topped with mozzarella and Parma ham. If you've room for dessert, you can't beat the vanilla and lemon panna cotta with mixed berries - it's refreshing but indulgent, the perfect combination. A wide range of fine wine is available to complement your meal, and the friendly staff are more than capable of advising you on the best match.

There are now several Bottelino's around the South West, and each site maintains the style and polished service that Giuseppe envisaged when he opened his first restaurant 40 years ago. Whether you're looking for a venue for an important business lunch, a celebratory family dinner or a quick meal on the go, Bottelino's can guarantee a warm family welcome and authentic Italian cuisine to suit every taste
