  • "The lovely Emrullah and his great staff, along with their fantastic food make Briscola our favourite restaurant. There is a meal for all tastes on their menu. Great specials and excellent wines on their wine list, never been disappointed with anything. We always feel welcome even when on occasion we arrived without a reservation! Love this place and its food. A credit to our village."

  • "We found the food to be very average yet over priced. The tables were very close together so you are sat on top if each other. Staff were nice and friendly but the food let it down"

  • "Wonderful food - the 'flaming pizza' was really very good indeed. The presence of three large parties celebrating made the noise levels uncomfortable while we were there, but that's just the luck of the draw."

  • "We were a table of four and found the service to be very slow and food forgotten, when the food came 3 of the meals were ok but mine was cold, i did complain and have to say that it was put right asap but my friends had finished there meals by then , we were not asked if we would like more drinks either, it was a shame as have been here before on a few occasions and all has been great, maybe they needed more staff."

  • "We booked a table for Saturday night, peak time 8pm and we only waited 2 minutes to be seated. The staff were attentive but also left us alone to enjoy our time together and were really helpful with the ingredients as one of my friends couldn't each dairy produce. Food was lovely and was served almost instantly. Long enough time left between courses too. Excellent night all round."

  • "Booked table for 8pm @ 7:45 received a phone call saying could we arrive @ 8:30 as they were running alittle behind. Arrived @ 8:30 we were told our table was almost ready, had to stand in the doorway for approx 20 mins, we were then taken to a table in the waiting area, we placed our order and was told we would be moved into the main restaurant very soon. @ 9:50 had'nt moved and no food to be seen!!!! We asked for the bill in the end and left. very bad service and not much of an apology. Very disappointing........"

  • "Since finding Briscola 5years ago we have had a reliable place to visit for excellent Italian food. Last Weds we cashed in 500 loyalty points and saved £40 on food - almost a free meal for two on "bring your own wine night". Lovely meal, charming service and welcome greeting as always from Emrullah. We gained these points from taking the Express lunch regularly, the Early Bird Menu with our Group and taking special friends. In every circumstance food received the same skilled cooking and cheerful service. So long as Em owns Briscola we shall dine there regularly."

  • "Me and my girlfriend went for a meal at Briscola for her birthday and it wad a fantastic night. The food was world class and every bite was just as exciting as the previous. The calzone I had was massive and i struggled to finish it but couldn't face leaving such good food. The wine was also very nice and I'd highly recommend the pinot grigio. The service from all the team was amazing also. The owner knew that it was my girlfriends table and made sure we got the booth we requested even though the restaurant was packed. The waitresses were really attentive but not overly intrusive of out dining experience. Possibly the best restaurant I've ever been too."

Having not been there for 18 months, I moved away from the area, I was delighted to find that the food and service was as good as ever. The owner, Emrula, is a gracious host who always ensures that everything runs smoothly. I would highly recommend Briscoola."

  • "Went for a birthday meal and thoroughly enjoyed every moment! Food is of a very high quality and delicious, tried one of the specials and thought it divine. Ended up having a three course meal, though we were both stuffed half way through the main course! Staff were very friendly and attentive as well. Truly lovely evening. We were initially recommended to try Briscola and have since passed on the restaurant name ten-fold! Definitely will be revisiting soon."

  • "Great service, delicious food and good selection of wine. The restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and we would definitely go again."
    dined on 31/10/2012
  • "I cannot fault the food, however the service was very poor, it took an age to actually order our food, when it came it was very good. When we had finished our main meal the waitress asked if we would like to see the coffee/desset menu to which we replied yes, 40 minutes later and still no menu! At this point we decided just to get the bill. We then found out why the service was so poor when paying the waitress informed us that the card machine was broke and the management were on holiday. Therefore the waiting on staff were not actually working as they normally would, had they been supervised."
    dined on 31/08/2012
  • "As a keen customer at this restaurant the food and service was lovely as always but I was disgusted when I noticed on the bill that they had charged me £1.00 for a little sprinkle of parmesan. This has actually made me think twice about returning here in the future. Why do that?...its just greedy and cheeky!"
