Briscola has established itself on the Canberra food scene by offering an unpretentious yet stylish approach to an authentic Italian dining experience. At the forefront it’s about the food: simple, wholesome and traditional without being old fashioned. The “old fashioned” is evident in the service with Gianni focusing on giving the diner a charming experience. What sets us apart is how we transport you to Italy. Start with an aperitivo to open the palate, enjoy a local or Italian wine varietal and finish with a soothing digestive. Briscola seems to suit anyone… corporate luncheons, young couples, families and group functions.

This would genuinely have to be the worst food I’ve tasted in the last 5-10 years. Positives: Staff were relatively friendly and the restaurant was OK. Negatives: Literally make 1 pasta hand-made. What we ordered: Rissoto / Gnocchi / Bruschetta Ingredients are not fresh, they are frozen and/or come out of a packet. Flavourless, bland food that is NOT authentic nor fresh. I could almost guarantee if I walked out the back, 90% would be coming out of sealed bags. They’ve either lost there passion for cooking or gotten lazy. This is far from authentic Italian and portrays nothing stated on your website. I felt embarrassed taking my partner here for her birthday, and should of stuck to what we know. All the best. Oh and top of it all, they pay for 5 star reviews and have been reported to Google for misconduct. Hence the high rating.

Within 4 minutes they had a table for us, we ordered promptly and the food was excellent as was the service. Highly recommend eating here if you are in Canberra.

Their energy for work amazing. Certainly no I in team amongst them. Worked their proverbial butts off, all with a smile and concern that your needs were met. Extremely busy Sunday night, we did have to wait for our meal a little longer than expected but we were in no hurry.

It was better weather than was forecasted so our server kindly found us a table outside at our request (we had booked a table inside). The food was amazing, wine was great and our waitress was attentive, friendly and polite. If I'm being super picky we were sat just outside the front door so at one point there was a line of people waiting to be seated stood directly in front of our table for a while, talking loudly and watching us eat which ruined the atmosphere a bit but we did ask to sit there so..... : )

In fact we were surprised by the large number of staff and delighted with those we interacted with. The food was delicious and while the wrong pizza was prepared and delivered to our table the mistake was quickly rectified and we received an in person apology from the staff members who had written down the wrong pizza type. Our wine choice was unavailable and the staff organised a quick tasting of the alternative which did not suit and and we changed to an Italian Soave which was delicious. Our coffees were derived before our desserts as requested and were very nicely prepared and tasted great. Then the highlight of the night - my wife and I had both ordered the dessert calzone of the specials board with banana, caramilk and icecream and they were both superb. A great night and we will dine there again soon.
