Great menu - something for everyone. Food was delicious, recommend the tuna steak.
Took a little while to get us seated and take orders, but once we had been assigned a waiter he was very friendly and attentive. Restaurant is lovely inside, good ambience.

We went to Branca for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. The staff were very attentive and gave us a complimentary glass of fizz. The food and wine were absolutely delicious. We had a very special time for a very special day.

This is a great restaurant. Good food, friendly staff and a great atmosphere. My only criticism would be that the noise level is quite high. Not sure if that is easily fixed but wold make it very hard work if you had hearing issues.

Nice place but barman a bit casual and didn’t know how to make a cocktail. Starters were delicious but pizza really poor, dry base and far too much cheese on top. Lovely waitress who was very attentive and brought lots of water which was much appreciated. Got the bill wrong but quickly rectified once pointed out

Really enjoyed our visit to Branca on Saturday. The staff were very courteous and friendly, the food excellent and the décor smart. Our table for 12 was ready when we arrived and we were attended to swiftly with very little waiting upon ordering.

Branca is what it is basic restaurant unfortunately not for us never ever believed in cutlery in old tins with paper tissues stuffed in side but they were very busy so they must be doing something right but not for us and we wish them luck.

Excellent as always! We used to be regulars when we lived round the corner and recently visited after being away from Oxford for 5 years. Menu is still as reliably high quality and with some old favourites slightly tweaked. Atmosphere was fantastic, excellent selection of wines and cocktails. Food was absolutely wonderful - even at 10pm on a Sunday night. Service was top notch - we could not have asked for a friendlier, funnier, competent waiter.

Thank you for your continued high quality service and food.

Food was good, as usual. But the acoustics are very challenging.
Really not possible to have a conversation with more than the person next to you as the noise from the other diners is deafening when the restaurant is full.

Service was rather slow as the restaurant was full up.

Will keep coming back as the food is always good. But will avoid busy times if possible.

Disappointed, no specials after 7. Basic menu over priced Steak and kitchen staff having a loud disagreement upstairs didn’t help
Lovely premises but needs to upgrade the food offering, they should be aming for a high level of service than knives and forks with cheap knapins in a serve yourself jar

Five mums on a rare weekend away. The moment we walked through the door, we were greeted by super friendly staff where no ask throughout our evening was too big or too much trouble. The restaurant itself has a lovely atmosphere. Food was fab! It’s such a shame we don’t live in Oxford as we’d fast become regulars! Thank you for making our evening so enjoyable!

Always a good vibe. Took a while to get waiter attention, but busy Fri night. Branca have recently expanded and seem to be one or two serving staff below what’s needed. Friendly chatty service, food generally good (one pizza good, the artichoke one not a good choice).

The restaurant was busy our friends had arrived so we made our own way to table no staff to greet us
Only a couple had starters so our mains took over one half hours
Had to ask staff for more drinks
Then bill came and £45 was added due to service charges which we question as service wasn’t satisfactory

Our evening was very nice, lovely atmosphere and great service. my food was good but one of our party was delivered the wrong dish, when the right pizza arrived it had been rushed and was undercooked. The staff were very sorry and did provide a free drink so can’t fault the service at all. I would visit again
