I like the service and friendliness. Going here with a large dog is a treat since everyone is so accommodating. The food was good although I like my pizza well done, so it was a bit too blond for my taste. The one downside is the noise - volume goes up when it fills up. But Branca is definitely a go-to destination.

We ate quite late on a busy evening for the restaurant (NYE) and the food was just OK without being anything exceptional. Branca occupies a lovely space and is a nice spot for a pre or post-cinema meal. The staff are friendly and attentive.

Amazing food and good price considering it was new years eve. Busy ambience but efficient service. Always attentive and with a big smile despite of the heavy workload. Would definitely recommend as I have done in the last 5 years since I met Branca

Not cheap, but all the food was very nice, and the staff were helpful and attentive. A good menu to cover a range of tastes and ages (teenagers were happy with pizza and burger menu).

The food is incredible (especially the mushroom gnocchi), and service is always outstanding. I also got a free glass of Prosecco for my birthday which was lovely <3 :)

We very much enjoyed our evening at Branca; the staff were extremely friendly, flexible and helpful - which is what made our experience so nice The food was pretty good, most of our party enjoyed their meal, although I thought the soup I had very average, and some found the crispy fried squid 'tough'.

The food was delicious, the service was fun yet attentive and the atmosphere was lively. It didn't cost the Earth and we left feeling really happy. Really, that's all you can ask for.

Table for 8 - cousins' get together. Some food good, some less so. Nothing awful. Service generally good though for onglet steak they refused to substitute chips & veg for salad, which I thought was a bit poor.
In the picturesque Jericho area of Oxford, a definite plus.
Lots of noise and some slobbish behaviour from adjoining large group. That said, we enjoyed the overall experience.

Great evening out with my team from work. Francesco took good care of us, very friendly and nothing seemed to be an effort for him! We found out we come from the same Italian region so that was a plus!

Busy and bustling venue for a family weekend lunch. Quite a long wait for food, but that was noted on the menu, so we were aware beforehand. Very good service with helpful and very accommodating staff. Lovely food. Menu quite limited, but enough to choose from.

Surely Oxford's most reliable dining experience? Great brasserie-style menu, lovely dining room and the nicest service in Oxford.
