Wholesome, welcoming and a long time coming are a few words and phrases that can describe Bomboloni. The Griffins have finally been given the opportunity to open their own place after the chefs in the family, Dad Andrew and daughter Molly, have spent a few years doing the rounds in Bristol kitchens. Now set up on Gloucester Road they are serving homely Italian food to the Bishopston masses. You will find pizza, pasta, great wine and of course the namesake "Bomboloni", a small, light doughnut complete with various creamy fillings. Delicious!
My partner and I were so impressed by our date night at Bomboloni! We weren't sure what was included in the Wriggle as the wording was a bit different to the menu, but the waitress was very helpful, and although the kitchen was busy the service remained fantastic. The atmosphere was lovely, and the food was impressive - I had a large bowl of wild boar pasta in which the meat fell apart gorgeously and tasted delicious. We left incredibly full (a side of sourdough garlic bread was tasty but too much for us on top of a starter and main!) and happy, very pleased I'd chosen here to celebrate some good news I'd gotten that day. I've already recommended it to my colleagues and we'll come back again.
Lovely restaurant, great staff and delicious food. Portions are very generous! Great range of menu choices with a good selection for the veggies.
Lovely Italian place, ox cheek ragu was superb, lovely and rich and meaty. Busy on a Thursday night but still room to buy a wriggle and head straight in.
The food at Bomboloni is exceptional; it's really fresh, perfectly cooked and the portions are generous. I'd eat there every week if I could!
Lovely place to eat with well cooked and seasoned food served by friendly staff.
The ox cheek parpadelle and the gnocci are amazing!
