An eruption of Mediterranean flavours and fresh Italian cuisine await you at Zanky’s!

Zanky’s is a family-run restaurant with a passion for good Sardinian food. Their deeply-rooted beliefs in traditional Italian cooking go back for generations, with Founder and Head Chef Fabio Dindi having been taught how to cook by his Grandfather Zanky. Fabio went on to study at the ALMA Academy of Gualtiero Marchesi, the famous Italian chef who is considered to be the founder of modern Italian cuisine, and has combined his skills and love for food to create Zanky’s Italian Restaurant.

Zanky’s menu changes regularly, depending on what inspires the chefs and what is seasonal. From stuzzichini (nibbles) of olive focaccia and just-baked breads, starters of arancini and vegetables tempura, to mains of slow-cooked duck parpadelle and authentic Napoletana pizza, there’s something delicious to try for almost all dietary requirements.

Proud to offer fresh and homemade Sardinian cuisine, enjoy traditional Italian fare within a warm and inviting atmosphere at Zanky’s, found just off Gloucester Road on Filton Road.

What a brilliant find. A wonderful family run restaurant. A little out of the way but don't let that put you off as you will not be disappointed.

For starter my husband and I had mushroom tempura with salad. Main course was home made spaghetti with an amazing vegetarian sauce. My husband had the same pasta with a rich Venison Ragu sauce.i followed this delicious meal with Tiramisu. Needless to say it was as equally delicious as our starter and main course.

Just to note all pasta is made on the premises and the waitress brought round samples to show us before we ordered.

The service is very warm and friendly and we will definitely be going back.

Certainly one of my favourite restaurants in Bristol, a real ‘hidden gem’ in my eyes. My partner and I had quail and beef carpaccio to start, which were both wonderful and had to swap plates halfway through and we then opted for some hand rolled pizzas with some of the best cheese on the fungi pizza I have ever tasted! Sara was lovely as always and I look forward to eating there again soon! Thank you Zanky’s!

We have eaten at Zanky's before, and really love the homemade pasta and delicious sauces. It is unusual to find food prepared with such love in a residential neighbourhood and Zanky's is a real find. The staff are very friendly and service was efficient, yet unrushed. We had the Sardinian bread and beef carpaccio to start. The beef carpaccio is extremely moreish but I did prefer it the way it was served before, with pieces of blood orange, rather than the orange flavoured cream. My pasta with wild boar ragu was very rich and satisfying - the pasta lovely and al dente. My husband's gnocchettini with sausages and tomato was lovely and light. Highly recommended.

This place is such a find on my doorstep! The food is first class gourmet Italian which is beautifully presented and tastes amazing. We can recommend all the choices we made which included carpaccio di manzo affumicoto which was beautifully smoked and served with an explosion of cirtus flavours. The quaglie con mostardo di pere was crispy and tasty, and again served with a lovely mustard dressing.

Visited here with a friend using first table, First impressions were great - inside the restaurant was small but cosy and modern. The service was very good. The pizza I ordered was one of the best I've ever had - nice homemade dough and the sweetest cherry tomatoes. The only thing I would say was as I got to the restaurant at 6 for the first table offer - I was the only table in there which was a little awkward. However I can't moan much when I got the First Table deal. Overall I would definitely return

What a lovely neighbourhood restaurant Zanky's is. We couldn't fault a thing about our evening; the owners and staff were friendly and attentive, the atmosphere was busy and buzzy and the food was absolutely spot on. Don't be put off that this restaurant isn't smack bang in the centre of the city, as it is worth taking a trip for.
The fresh pasta dishes are generous in portion and tasted wonderful, we would definitely recommend the lasagne parcels as a starter, as well as the carpaccio. Everything on the menu sounded delicious to be honest.
The staff were knowledgable, helpful and most importantly passionate, which really meant a lot to us as it showed just how much it meant to them. The First Table early dining offer is fantastic, we got so much for our money and I think it encouraged other walk-in diners inside as the restaurant looked busy early in the evening. We are already planning on going back to Zankys and it is now one of our favourite Bristol restaurants.
