Pasta Loco is Bristol’s first fresh pasta eatery, specializing in serving unique and deliciously original pasta dishes. Their seasonal menu also includes weekly specials and a mouthwatering array of cured meats, fish and artisan cheeses.


Trip Advisor: 5* - “Not a negative on the whole place. From the service to the food, to the drink, not one thing is poor about this place. Friendly engaging welcome and clarifying a small but fresh menu. Food is of a very high standard. A great little place that is five star in all aspects”

Opened in September 2012 by chef James Wilkins and wife Christine Vayssade, Wilks gained a Michelin star after just one year.
