I do rate Briscola overall, but I am very disappointed by their recent decision to discard the recently introduced vegan options (vegan cheese on pizza/vegan pasta with cheese). It was exciting when they first introduced these options as it added another restaurant to the promising list in Bollington (a very animal friendly place!) of venues which offer tasty options for...

We have been repeat customers at Briscola for half a year now, and for good reason! The menu is large, varied and inventive. The portion sizes are very generous, and I am slowly working my way through the great selection of red wine! The staff are friendly, and the chef even comfortably catered for my vegan mother. This place is... More

Found this little gem via reviews and was not disappointed, everything was gorgeous, seated in a cosy booth, food full of flavour and beautifully presented. Couldn't have asked for more, gluten free tomato garlic bread and creamy chicken, bacon and mushroom pasta were the best I've had anywhere. Kir royale was a lovely start and all the portions were generous... More

My husband and I visited at the weekend. The food is excellent, the staff are friendly but not intrusive and the atmosphere was great. One tip, you will get your steak cooked, (which melted in our mouths), the way you like it. My husband likes his steaks medium, but most places usually overcook them so he has got accustomed to...

Enjoyed a lovely meal here recently with the family. The food was delicious and the menu has plenty of options. Despite being a Wednesday evening the restaurant was packed with a great atmosphere (including the outdoor area). I liked the new decor and the bar area which looks fantastic!
