Why we love it

A Capella may be found outside of the city centre but, for a serious slice of stonebake, it runs rings around Bristol's competition (dough-n't you know).

Owners Paul and Jennifer hit the ground running when they set-up shop a decade ago and their famous formula (simple ingredients from Naples; a mouthwatering spread of cured and roasted toppings; an eye for properly traditional technique) has continued that delicious momentum. Now, after ten or so much-loved years, they've gained a nod from The Guardian as the UK's best budget Italian and get ringing endorsements from the Totterdown foodie faithful. High praise indeed.

When the sun dips below Totterdown's dreaming hilltops, they serve their signature stonebaked pizzas by the bucket load. And, throughout the day, the cafe ticks the right boxes for a café crowd, boasting bountiful servings of cake, freshly tossed salads, tantalising tapas, panini, pastas, tortillas and much much more.

A Capella are humming along to their own tune away from the noise of the centre - and what they're doing sounds pretty good to us!
