Having heard such good reviews and seen delicious pics on Instagram we came away disappointed. The majority of our dishes were too salty and too fatty and I love salt and fat! Maybe we were unlucky with our choices but I would go back again to hopefully have a better experience.
Absolutely delicious meal. Would highly recommend
Well worth the journey we made to eat here. Left feeling slightly envious of the Raleigh Road residents having it on their doorstep.
One of the best meals I’ve had in Bristol, can’t wait to come back!
Amazing food at this cosy, lively place and a lovely welcome
Fantastic lunch, fresh daily menu, excellent service and Farinata to die for! What more could you want!
Superb. Such high quality food, lovely atmosphere and excellent service. What a treat.
Looked and tasted great.
Friendly and helpful staff
Delicious food and wonderful service. We will definitely be back!
Beautiful food served in a very relaxed environment. Highly recommend
Very friendly,welcoming,neighbourhood ,restaurant.Compact,corner shop conversion,so limited space,laid out simply.
Food was very good.Italian menu,using first class ingredients..Limited wine list,but well-selected.
Would love to have it on a street corner closer to me!
Delicious food, was such a lovely treat. It is a small space though and felt a bit too tightly packed. Felt like our table wasn’t big enough and the noise was a bit too loud for me.
We had a wonderful dinner at Sonny’s Stores. The ribeye and tiramisu particularly delicious. Very much recommend.
Such a vibrant , fun and classy place to eat. From the minute we walked in door it was such a pleasure to be there. Food was amazing and served by such friendly staff from front of house to the chefs. Highly recommend Sonny Stores.
Great food, efficient and friendly staff. Bit cold sitting outside but better that than no opportunity to enjoy a special night out at a lovely restaurant.
Start to finish, the experience at Sonny Stores was magnificent. Beautiful produce served simply, with attentive, friendly and professional service throughout.
With the hype of a Jay Rayner review, we had to wait a few months for a table. Thankfully Sonny Stores lived up to expectations.
We were a hungry group of 5 with no dietary restrictions so were able to gobble up most things on the menu, which were all delicious. The sweetbreads were an unexpected treat, as were the Spaggly Waggly cocktails.
It did feel a bit classier than your typical neighbourhood restaurant, it also it wasn’t exactly what I’d describe as a cheap eat (perhaps it would be if you had more restraint with the number of courses and wine list than us) but it was certainly fairly priced for the quality of the food and service.
All round, an excellent meal and experience.
A wonderful gem of a restaurant in Southville! A relaxed and welcoming ambience coupled with delicious food made for a great lunchtime experience. The menu - although short, was varied and with something to suit most preferences. Spanking fresh quality ingredients. The wine list was well priced and varied. We would definitely return.
The best pasta I’ve ever had and I think the best restaurant I’ve visited in Bristol.
The most beautiful birthday meal, we had nearly everything on the menu and shared it all. Absolutely divine, I can't wait to come back! Thank you Sonny Stores x
All three courses were delicious (especially the fish), the wine was lovely and the atmosphere was very comfortable. Shared starters and desserts and still came away feeling nicely full. Can’t wait to go again and try something else!
Delicious food. Helpful and friendly waitress. Good service times and nice lovely atmosphere.
Third time here and will keep coming back. Gave 4 on ambiance due to noise level and 4 on value because as good as the food is, the pay check always stings a bit. I will keep coming back though as the food and drink is always exceptional.
I went to the restaurant the other day and had the most delicious meal.we decided to go for the starters so we had a selection which was a good idea as we had the chance to taste a variety of dishes I would definitely recommend this the whole experience was wonderful and to top it off we had puddings which I would also recommend thank you for a lovely meal
Absolutely delicious! Wonderful evening. Will come again for sure
We had such a lovely evening! The food was amazing and the service was fabulous - definitely need to return to try other things on the menu!
Superb, unpretentious cooking in a lovely atmosphere. Italian cuisine of the very highest quality. Highly recommend.
Really delicious and reasonably priced, authentic food. Simple, seasonal and sophisticated. It was all so fresh my palate was just singing!
Lovely lunch. Stunning food - but hard to chat and hear friends as acoustics hampered by a noisy toddler/baby at another table.
I can’t fault this restaurant. I don’t want to recommend it because I want to always get a table. However it would be a disservice as everybody needs to try it. Possibly the best meal I have ever had. Outstanding in every way.
A gorgeous local and independent Italian bistro. The food was simply stunning with a great choice from a small menu. The service was super. Will definitely be returning!
Lovely service, but heavily overpriced food, to be sitting in a small local store. Pizza the best value and very tasty
Outstanding food. Really excellent ingredients, simply but beautifully cooked. Short but interesting menu. Very good wine. Friendly, informal service. We loved it and would love to go back SOON!
Best pasta I have ever eaten - staff were friendly, kitchen team were smiling, general atmosphere was spot on.
Wonderful food matched by equally as brilliant staff
We really enjoyed Sonny Stores. The food and service were lovely. Between us we ordered quite a few different dishes and everyone was very pleased with their choices. Pricing was very reasonable too. Only slight downside was that we were sat next to a group of four young people who seemed unaware that they were talking and laughing so loudly that it was hard for anyone else to hear one another. We were very relieved when they left. In small setting there it nothing that Sonny's could have done about this of course but it was a bit of a pain.
A little residential caff? Yes and no…
Easy going quirk with a taste of something glorious and a little bit exotic. Discombobulating on a miserable October day in south Bristol.
Well worth the booking wait (3 weeks).
Chicken liver parpadelle was very good and the hake also slapped.
Amazing food and the staff were super lovely. Will definitely be returning again!
