We had traveled from overseas to surprise a lovely lady for her birthday, other local family members actually booked this restaurant, and with their rave reviews ringing in our ears we headed to Briscola, happy and hungry. It was very busy ( which is a good sign ) and we had to wait a little while in the small annex,... More

Although I don't live in Bollington (about 100 miles away actually) I have found myself visiting this restaurant three times in the last three months. Lovely New Years Eve treat early doors with our young children and two other times with friends and family. The food is fantastic and the staff are very welcoming. I especially love the seafood dishes... More

Called on the way home from a day out. Staff indifferent, atmosphere flat, considering it was early evening and the place wasn't busy, the service was decidedly slow, food nothing to write home about. I had to ask twice for the bill, and there was no acknowledgement as we left. There are better places to enjoy.

Ate here as a party of four (all adults) on the evening of 27th December 2016. Food and service were as good as our previous experience. This is certainly the best italian restaurant we have found near Macclesfield and I am sure we will enjoy its delights again during 2017

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
