Visited while in Bournemouth. This is the second time I have visited this restaurant. Food is always good quality. Reasonably priced for an Italian. Particularly in Bournemouth. Staff are friendly and attentive.

A welcoming environment of good quality. A large group but we received excellent service and the food was of a high standard. Quite enjoyed the Merlot too. Would recommend to couples, families and groups.

Traditional Italian cooking with modern inspiration set in an ambient and relaxing atmosphere. An Alcatraz Brasserie is the ideal place for a quick lunch, a business meeting, a night out or even just for one of our fantastic coffees. Alcatraz specialises in home-made pastas, pizza and specialty dishes prepared daily with the freshest and finest ingredients. It's no wonder that Alcatraz Brasseries continue to be one of the best in the business.
