Out and About

Bristol is packed with places to eat, drink and enjoy cultural experiences; but if it’s your first time in the area it can be hard to know where to start. That’s why we’ve teamed up with some of the City’s most loved establishments and, in some cases, managed to bring you some exclusive offers.

We’ve personally visited each of them and have no hesitation in making these recommendations. And if, whilst exploring Bristol, you see something that you feel should be added to the list, please do let us know. We’d love to hear about it and pay them a visit.

Bosco Pizzeria

96 Whiteladies Rd - 01179 737 978

Bosco is a neighbourhood pizzeria inspired by the best pizzerias of Naples and New York City.

A lot of inspiration was taken from what these guys were doing but the key for us was to develop a recipe that was our own. So together with a bunch of like-minded friends we set about creating our perfect pizza. It’s been a long process, we’ve tasted a lot of dough and eaten a lot of pizza, but we’re happy with the result. Although our intention was to serve just pizza we felt we couldn’t leave out the other amazing dishes we had tasted. So in the end our little pizzeria has become a collection of our favourite dishes from our travels around Italy.
