I go fairly regularly to A cappella as it happens to be in walking distance of where I live and to The City Centre. The Breakfasts are good, the bacon sanis good too and The Pizzas excellent! The veggie breakfasts are excellent too! The cakes are a little overpriced..... The staff are great, friendly and chatty and always make me... More

This is the best pizza ever. Local, fresh, friendly and polite staff, from whoever answers the phone to take your order to the chap delivering it to your door. Look forward to eating it every time I order, which isn't often as this is a treat to be savoured. Well worth it.

Consistently excellent, and offers imaginative pizza toppings that customers may modify as they prefer. Not licensed, but they'll provide glasses if you bring your own. If you forget to bring wine from home, there's a Co-op just down the road.

I would rate it 3.5 - good, not necessarily very good. The pizza was nice - not the best in Bristol - but nice none the less. It was a little red-onion heavy and perhaps need a bit more base sauce. We didn't realise it was BYO and weren't told when we booked so we just had water.

Visited with wife and elderly aunt for lunch. We were aware that the restaurant was not licensed to sell alcohol but we could take our own which we did. The quality of food was superior to some of the more expensive local restaurants we have dined at. The service was very good and staff polite.

These really are the best Pizzas I have tasted since returning to the UK from France in 1998. They are so fresh and so pleasingly different from all the high street Pizzas on offer. My favourite is the Fortissimo. The Pizzas come in 2 sizes 12 inch and 14 inch and the prices from £7.45 to £14.45. They deliver pizzas... More

Heard really good things about this place but it didn't live up to expectations. Me & my partner went for lunch & we took our laptop to book a holiday. The seats were really uncomfortable, tables were dirty & my partners cooked breakfast was tiny. Milkshakes were also very small for how much they cost. Will more then likely never... More

A capella is a great place for a family brunch, family celebration, romantic couples night, or even a cinema night at home with the takeaway delivery service. Have been here plenty of times and have always enjoyed the fantastic service and food. Highly recommend a visit!

The lady and I split a 14-inch Adagio, and we couldn't have been any happier. They quickly brought us chili oil and parmesan when we asked for it, and the pizza was cooked perfectly and topped generously. I strongly recommend eating a pizza here, as it is a very good price for such a great meal. Very nice servers and... More
