Taste of Napoli, Broadmead

Chosen by Carmine Montuori, Taste of Napoli Owner

I admit, I’m a little biased as this is our own place. But when it comes to food, you can’t beat Italian, and more specifically, Neapolitan.

We pride ourselves on serving our customers 100% authentic Italian and Neapolitan street food. From pizza by the slice (pizza taglio) to arancini, to croissants and coffee, we offer a huge range of hot and cold snacks perfect for break times, lunch and dinner.

Alongside the food, it’s also the people that make Taste of Napoli special; I don’t believe you’ll find a more hardworking team anywhere, and our customers are incredible. This has been reflected recently by the fact we entered the top 100 restaurants in Bristol on TripAdvisor (November 2019), and have over 500 positive reviews on Google alone.

Next time you’re in Broadmead, come along and say ciao to us – you won’t be disappointed!

Molto Buono, Park Street

Chosen by Carmine Montuori, Taste of Napoli Owner

When you come from somewhere like Napoli (Naples), you can often feel homesick – our home city is famed for its food and in particular, pizza. 

We are always on the lookout for good pizza options in Bristol and thankfully, Molto Buono on Park Street delivers. Any evening at Molto Buono is like an evening back in Napoli – a warm and welcoming environment, reasonable pricing and fantastic food!

The team at Molto Buono ensure all customers experience the highest quality service each and every time and its city centre location also makes it a no brainer at the end of a long day or week.

99 Queens, Clifton

Chosen by Warren George, Marketing Manager at Taste of Napoli

99 Queens is my go-to place if I find myself in Clifton. It’s perfect in any situation – a quick pitstop, long brunch, light lunch or afternoon drinks.

Their menu features an array of options, from traditional English fry-ups, to continental and alternative dishes. Over the years I have *probably* tried everything at least once and can honestly say I have not once thought “I wouldn’t have that again”. 

The guys here work tirelessly to exceed your expectations. Very few places can compare when it comes to service, and when the sun is out, their terrace at the front of the café gives any beer garden a run for its money!

Toasted UK, Broadmead

Chosen by Nikita Montuori, General Manager at Toasted UK

Sometimes you just need something good value, filling and a little different; that’s why we created Toasted UK.

We opened Toasted earlier this year (2019) with a simple aim: to provide great value, HUGE (maybe the biggest in Bristol!), toasted sandwiches as an alternative to the mainstream fast-food options available in the city centre.

Our menu boasts a large range of vegan and gluten-free sandwiches, and we are proud to also serve the same 100% Italian roast coffee that you’ll find at Taste of Napoli.  

To top all of this off, we offer sweet toastie options too. Come and try us on your next visit to Broadmead!
