Met a friend for a few beers. First visit, loved it. Sat at the bar, owner introduced himself and was very nitro speak with. Bartenders were nice and friendly and made some nice car bombs for us. Saw an awesome looking pizza that will be looking forward to checking out on next visit.

Excellent service, friendly and a good variety of Italian food. Pizza is a specialty. We enjoyed the pasta dishes and will return for pizza some day soon.

We got a pizza to go from this place once and thought it was good so we returned to have lunch there one day. Big mistake. The place didn't look like it had been cleaned properly in a very long time. Service was slow even though the place was nearly empty. We had to shoo the flies and fruit flies... More

As a local and a celiac, it's so nice to be able to meet friends at an Italian restaurant and know that I can get a gluten-free pizza for dinner. Their gf pizzas are thin crust, very crispy, and tasty, and you can get any toppings you want. My husband has had other dishes there, and is never disappointed.

We went to this restaurant with friends, not our choice. Atmosphere is great. Food was mediocre. I had the Mediterranean Pasta. I don't eat shrimp and asked if I could substitute chicken. That was no problem but when we went to pay the bill, they uncharged for the chicken! Shrimp is more expensive than chicken! I could have seen paying... More

You can't go wrong by stumbling into Machiavelli's for pizza and beer. The atmosphere is just right without being over-crowded by flatscreen everywhere. The beer selection is extensive and full of local craft beer options. Perfect for a guy's night out.

We have ordered many different pizzas and they have all been excellent. My mom loves their lasagna, she always eat every bite. Their spinach and artichoke is to die for.

I love all the choices of toppings for the pizzas. The salads are really good too. The trio of sauces you get with the breadsticks are all homemade and delicious! Best pizza in town. Cant wait to go back!

We've ate here numerous times and I can never remember to snap a few pictures so I waited to do my review until I had pictures cause we all love pictures. We start out with the bruschetta which is always great. And always get the prince pizza which is absolutely delicious and the closest to real Italian pizza in Bristol.... More
