Why we love it

Have you ever trekked far enough up Gloucester Road for it to turn into the lesser known Filton Road? Thought not... Well, dear Wriggler, it's time for you to put on your walking boots and make the long pilgrimage, because tucked away up this mysterious hill lies Zanky's, and Zanky's, my friend, is somewhere that you need to visit.

To those in the know (or perhaps those with a car...), Zanky's is THE place in Bristol to enjoy delicious mediterranean-inspired food. Their decadent pasta dishes with perfect, paper-thin homemade pasta and luxurious sauces crafted from indulgent ingredients such as duck, octopus and squid are the stuff of legend, whilst their traditional pizzas will transport you straight to the Sardinian sun in one mouthful.

The flavours, ingredients and techniques of Sardinian are vitally important to Zanky's; head chef Fabio was taught to cook by his Sardinian grandfather, and the beautiful Italian island still exerts a clear influence on Fabio's cookery today. Traditional Italian and Sardinian ingredients are sourced from specialist delis and suppliers, and the dishes in the restaurant hinge upon traditional cooking methods, with unctuous, slow-braised meaty sauces often assuming the leading role.

As a space to eat, relax, and catch up with friends, Zanky's is perfect; expect exposed brick walls, comfortable seating and soothing low lighting. The star of the show, though, is unmistakably the food – go hungry and with high expectations, and you won't be disappointed.

Wriggle Highlights

  • Outrageously good seafood carbonara
  • Wafer-thin pasta dishes, oozing with indulgent sauces
  • Chatting to the chefs who are overflowing with knowledge and passion for Sardinian cuisine.
