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!!!

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Prompted to visit by the amazing Jay Rayner review, managed to squeeze in just before the summer closedown, and boy was it worth it. Anchovies to start, excellent, ravioli and Pizza Blanco, washed down with the Gavi. All amazing and supported by fabulous service. One of the best in Bristol.

What outstanding, beautiful food. Really creative, modern, thoughtful and clever. Service warm and friendly, atmosphere really nice. Like being in a corner shop eating the best food in Bristol. Which is basically what you’re doing.
