We had such a lovely time here. Been a couple of times before and loved it, this was no exception. The food was amazing, service perfect level of attentive and leaving you to enjoy your meal, nice noise level for ambiance. Honestly can’t fault it - we’ll be back!
We enjoyed an amazing meal, all trying the raw seabass with Amalfi lemon to start and three different mains. Apart from the slightly under-rolled pasta everything was perfect, including a divine chocolate and hazelnut cake as dessert. Great ambience (ignoring chair comfort) and excellent service. Will definitely return
Interesting food, beautifully cooked and presented. Friendly and helpful service. Highly recommended!!
The whole team at Sonny Stores were fantastic. I only went last night but already planning my next visit. Not to be missed!!
Delightful family run Italian with exceptionally good food.
Sunny day at Sunny Stores. Brilliant food, just right service, sensible price. Just a little monochromatic on style and setting. Definitely a must to return
Amazing food, service and ambience. Would recommend to anyone. Can’t wait to visit again!
Really great ingredients cooked to perfection with unbelievably great flavour combinations. Service was superb, quick and efficient yet friendly always. Visually the restaurant was very pleasing on the eye too. A very bright and positive environment.
Amazing food and staff. Such a lovely atmosphere and beautiful sitting outside. Cannot wait to come back!
Nice enough, but quite pricey for what it is. Mushrooms on toast for £18 seems like madness....
Just unbelievably delicious food and lovely service.
We sat outside which was great but I think we would have struggled a bit inside as there’s no soft furnishings and there was music on inside - my partner is deaf in one ear and would have really found it difficult to hear anything or have a conversation because it’s so echoey. Adding some cushions/curtains/tapestries might help with this!
Only critique though - best meal out we’ve had in years thank you so much! We’ll be back with all our friends and family :)
Oh my gosh, what a treat! Highly recommend to everybody ever. One of the best meals of our lives. Make sure you go hungry enough to eat multiple dishes on the menu, it’s too good to only try one thing! I’d been in for pizza before, which was delicious, but we knew this time we wanted to eat everything we could. Burrata, pizzetta and a raw sea bass dish to start followed by the most incredible mains.. lamb shoulder, and lemon sole. Haven’t stopped thinking about the food since yesterday and can’t wait to go again. Finished it off with a delicious pear and walnut tart. Thank you Sonny Stores!!!
Wonderful. Great food and warm welcoming staff. Would move in if I could.
Beautiful food, really outstanding. Everything was delicious. Best food I’ve eaten in a really long time. Would recommend to everyone!!
By far the best food I have eaten in a long time. Flavours sublime and quality of ingredients evident. So simple yet delicious. Great service and such a welcoming place
Pizza difficult to eat as not cut and knife blunt. All OK but slightly disappointing after other rave reviews.
I’m all for a blackboard menu but the writing was so small it was impossible to read from anywhere other than right in front of it, which in the current climate is not very comfortable for the table sat in front of it.
I like the space and all staff were nice but overall I felt they are so intent on being hip and different that the overall customer needs are second to this I.e. no lemonade for mixers.
No plans to return.
We had a fantastic meal here. Lovely wait staff, great food and we got lucky as the sun was shining on our outdoor table. Only thing I would have liked was a vegetable side. I didn’t choose much veg so an additional green or two would have been great!
Starters and mains very good and outstanding value.
Crisp clean restaurant would definitely return if I went back to Bristol.
Though the margherita main pizza dough was a little thick and passata not tasty enough/ but everything else ordered including coffee was fab
Incredible food, very nice little setting. Loved it
Super food. The anchovies were divine. Luckily it didn't rain much, as we would have got wet on the terrace. The noise came from the road! Staff very friendly.
Absolutely delicious food! Would highly recommend.
Amazingly fresh and innovative food with very friendly staff and a lovely ambiance
Heard good things about Sonny,s live just up the road and decided to treat my friend to a meal! Thoroughly enjoyed the lemon sole we picked, so tasty and superbly cooked, lovely bottle of wine which was excellent value, lovely waiting staff, would definitely recommend.
Great food, great service, great value- loved it!
Delicious. As a table of 4 we tried lots of things on the menu, all of which were so tasty. The pizzetta with lardo particularly so.
Both the main dishes and pizzas are equally delicious, if you can find a way to squeeze a pizza into your meal, do.
Oh and the cocktails are so so so good.
Simple menu of exceptional produce. Everything we ate and drank was spot on and the staff were really warm and attentive. Would go back again and again.
Confident cooking delivering strongly flavoured and well balanced dishes. This chef knows what he is doing.....just go!
We took a taxi to Sonny Stores as we were unsure where it was. The driver found it easily and we were quickly shown to our seats even though we were quite early! The attentive service was first class and the food very delicious. It was a very nice experience. We walked back into the centre of Bristol and this was an easy stroll.
This was an exceptionally good meal, a really memorable experience. Delicious food perfectly cooked and presented, in a relaxed yet buzzy ambiance. It serves outstandingly good Italian cooking, of a standard you find in top London restaurants ( like River Cafe or Locanda Locatelli) and at a reasonable price. If you can, make sure you visit or take a detour to Bristol to try it - but make sure you book as it is deservedly popular.
Great service, lovey food. Amazing chilled wine. Intimate and friendly.
Totally delicious - every mouthful and every combination of flavours
Possibly the best lunch I've had in Bristol. Cannot fault the food or service at all. I haven't stopped thinking or talking about the entire experience.
Delicious food and excellent friendly service. A wonderful place for our first date night in a long while!
We went for my friends birthday, we had a lovely meal the food was excellent the service was excellent, definitely a place for a special occasion, we will be back.
Love this local gem of a little independent restaurant in the heart of Southville’s crown. We recently arrived at a very busy time for lunch and staff were rushed off of their feet working tirelessly to try and service everyone.
We had 1 starter, but waited an hour for our mains.
Food was delicious.
Moderate sized portions but very good quality and beautifully cooked.
As regulars we prefer to sit in the side street or indoors as people are sat very closely together under the small outdoor covered area meaning lack of privacy and very noisy during out most recent visit.
It’s so nice to see Sonny Stores survive 3 lockdowns and closures caused by staff being pinged by Track and Trace.
Second time visiting, as great as before. Can’t wait to go again. Great atmosphere, service and food.
Outstanding meal, well worth the wait and would highly recommend
Had a lovely time with three friends, sat outside. The food was delicious and very authentic (I have worked in Italy for 30 years), and the service was friendly and attentive. I will definitely be going back there
Absolutely amazing food and friendly, attentive service. The staff were really accommodating of our dietary requirements.
