    Excellent service & food, nothing was too much trouble, complementary Prosecco for all on arrival as we were celebrating someone’s birthday, complementary ice cream for the birthday girl. Excellent generosity of spirit, this remains one of our regular haunts.

    Now I am biased with my reviews as I have been visiting Branca for 21 years!! The quality of food remains outstanding as it always has done. The staff are fantastic the ambience is second to none and I will never stop going. The menu has great choices, the wine is superb and I just love everything about it. From deli counter to restaurant you will not be disappointed. This place is just heaven. ALSO I should mention it is really dog friendly and your dog is so so welcome with treats for them to enjoy. Don’t let this put you off if you don’t have a dog. You wouldn’t know there were any present as they are strategically seated and always well behaved. Well done Branca…yet again you are amazing!!

    This was our second visit to Branca. We came on Mother’s Day and enjoyed it so much that we decided to come for Father’s Day as well. The food was delicious, and the service was great. The staff were all so welcoming especially to our Two year old! It has quickly become one of our favourite places to eat as a family!

    As regular customers we again enjoyed a fabulous meal and evening. We have just one irritation: the added 12.5% gratuity is fair considering the excellent meal and service but the prompt on your card reader to add a further gratuity is annoying and confusing. This prevented us from awarding five stars for everything.

    Incredible service best I have ever encountered. Might want to consider getting a wood fired pizza oven. The base of the pizza is too crispy and cooked. Still very nice though. Linguini was incredible.
