About Zanky's Italian Restaurant
As Sardinian family we believe in and we are proud of our tradition. We are glad to offer fresh and home-made products from Sardinian and Italian tradition, everything surrounded by a familiar and warm atmosphere. Meats and fish on the Special daily boarder changes regularly.
Excellent night for my birthday 😊 would highly recommend
Love this place, it's a gem!
Food extremely tasty and taste as good as it loosk and portion sizes are good - we had tempura mushrooms -delicious and the Citrus-Smoked beef carpaccio with salad, agrumes segments and citrus sauce - delicious again followed by the Pappardelle with wild boar ragu' and slow cooked with herbs and aromas with a finish of dry ricotta cheese and I had the vegetarian pizza - lush and very filling, but was able to take away what I didn't eat - coffee is lovely too. Because it is a small restaurant the tables are sited very close together - ok if you don't mind talking very quietly or sharing your conversation with strangers. Great background music too. The meal was bought as a gift so some of the menu was off limits but was able to purchase so of the menu that was over the voucher limit by paying a bit extra. Would definitely visit again :)
Had the meat and cheese selection starter to share, which was excellent, as always. For main I had the wild boar ragu pappardelle, which was fantastico! I think the ragu recipe had been updated since last time I had the same/similar dish, and I thought it was even better than before! Semifredo desert was also very good.
Wonderful food and wonderful place
Was a little bit shocked to be charged £3.25 for a side salad that just consisted of a few mixed leaves ! No tomatoes or onions or dressing!! Otherwise it was fantastic !!
We had Saturday lunch there. The atmosphere was great, the staff was amazing. They make you feel very welcome. Food looked and tasted like in a Michelin star restaurant, everything was fresh and made to perfection. I will definitely come back soon.
I'm becoming a bit of a regular! The menu has been revised since my last visit but the quality was up to the usual standards
The foods was sublime and atmosphere was nice, relaxed and cosy. Best Italian I've eaten in the UK. The waitress was super lovely but a bit busy serving so many people on her own.
Just fabulous food in an unassuming restaurant in an unfashionable area of Bristol. Best 3 courses we have eaten in a long time!!! Will be back very soon and have recommended to all our friends.
Really tasty food. Lovely service. Would definitely recommend and we would go back. Only mark down was our espresso martini wasn’t very good but that would be the only criticism. Apart from that it was lovely.
Fabulous food! Wonderful ingredients, beautifIlly made dishes, felt like we were on holiday in Italy! We feel so lucky to have found this restaurant so near our house...I just recommended you to a friend who lives close by today. We will be back many times for sure!
Myself & Bev had a lovely Valentines evening, our booking was 20:00. It was very busy ( as expected), the staff were very helpful, but they did forget about us after the 21:00 bookings came in. The food was amazing, with fantastic choice, but the main course was just too small. We are going back soon, in the week so we can spend more time looking at the menu & stay longer so we can sample a desert & coffee.
Amazing Italian food ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I enjoyed unique and authentic food from Sardinia at this familly run independent restaurant. Also nice to hear some explanations about the food (how things are made/originate from, etc...) from their friendly team. I particularly recommend the meat and cheese platter starter (which is a good size to share) - lots of interesting things unique to Sardinia, plus some unique Sardinian crisp bread. Great selection of pasta dishes to choose from, the vast majority based on pasta styles you don't normally see in the shops (at least not in the UK anyway!).
Absolutely lovely restaurant. Being small gives it a cosy feel.
The quality of the food was really impressive along with the menu. We would of preferred not to sit next to the door hence the four stars for atmosphere.
Lovely restaurant and a great asset to the area. Hope it prospers and stays for many years
Overpriced for what it is. Fried fish with a smattering of sauce at £8+. Boar pasta meat was very dry. Salads sparse at £3.75 each Will not be returning.
Great first visit. Food was lovely and service polite and friendly. Will be returning.
Lovely food and great service, will eat here again
Great meal and service. We'll be back!
Visited after a recommendation. Fabulous food and great genuine service. Will be back
Lovely restaurant with delicious food and super helpful waiting staff, being surrounded by families and friends the waiting staff chatted with really helped the warm and welcoming feeling - nothing like eating with native Italians to know the food is good!
Just a lovely intimate restaurant with a great atmosphere and wonderful food.
