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.
Since my first visit, shortly after Zanky's opened, it has become my go to Italian restaurant in Bristol. From the warm welcome on arrival, to the warmth of the Grappa with your coffee, the ambience, the food and wine inbetween, it is an experience not to be missed. Try it and you'll be hooked. Enjoy.
Fab place, great atmosphere and delicious food. Small menu but everything is done perfectly!
Personally I found Zanky's awesome. Staff are friendly, and accommodating. I accidentally booked a table for only two, when there were 7 of us. Nice lady checked the spaces were available, and reorganized tables to fit us in quick. I had a buffalo pasta dish, the sauce was well balanced to my pallet, sprinkling of parsley not too overpowering which is my preference, and the meat was cooked well, retaining a lot of its flavour. The pasta was a shade firmer than I prefer, but was very tasty. The staff were non-intrusive, not too busy around the table, but offering drinks at appropriate intervals. I would say the prices were not bad, not super cheap but priced right considering its a lovely meal. Will be booking again at some point, a table for two with my fiancé, this time I'll get it correct... I promise!
Everything from the service to the divine antipasti to the perfect pizza and delicious pasta is wonderful. My new favourite Italian restaurant!
Zanky's is fun, relaxed, wholesome and delicious!
Booked on a friends recommendation. Possibly the best Italian I’ve had in this country!
Excellent meal, atmosphere and service. Starters, pasta and pizza all of a very high standard.
One upon a time I thought that, in Bristol, to find a restaurant of this calibre you had to go to some of the prettier parts of the city. Zanky's is one of the restaurants I've been to recently that has proved that a misconception. I chose to take my wife on a date to Zanky's because it was voted #2 of the best Italian restaurants in Bristol by the Bristol Post, it boasted Sardinian food (which reminded my of our first holiday together as a married couple) and we could walk to it. I wasn't sure about the location, and it was a gamble, but it was totally worth it. The service was lovely. The servers are very attentive and cheerful. The restaurant itself is well appointed and clean. The food was absolutely outstanding (although nothing on the dessert menu attracted us enough to eat beyond the totally-full-up that we were). We had the special of the day, which was Pork Belly. We usually go for Pork Belly, because it's usually quite nice wherever you get it and too much effort to make at home. I think I can honestly say that this was the best Pork Belly I've ever had, ever. The portion sizes were good. The atmosphere was welcoming. It wasn't pretentious in any way. Top work, guys! We'll come again.
Another brilliant evening at Zanky's- my family from Cardiff were here in Bristol to visit and they had a fantastic time. Stunning authentic Sardinian food, lovely atmosphere and fantastic service. Thank you!
Fabulous evening and delicious food. I think you could invest in some window blinds as the sun was very dazzling and hot but did not spoil the evening. Thanks.
Will definitely eat at Zanky’s again x
