Aquila Restaurant


Welcome to Aquila, a new beginning for Italian dining in Bristol.

Aquila is a family run modern Italian restaurant bringing the very best of traditional dishes from the regions of Italy to Bristol city centre. The sleek design of the restaurant is complimented by the service given by the front of house team led by General Manager Steve Mason. Steve and his sommeliers have created an extensive wine list to compliment the menu that Head Chef Emilio Titillo and his brigade have created.

Their central location on Baldwin Street gives great views from the floor to ceiling windows over both floors, and the capacity of 160 guests ensure they can cater for any occasion. Aquila is fully accessible and has a lift which covers the bar, ground and first floor areas. Vegan and Vegetarian menus are available on request.
