I love the charming look of Branca with its wood floors, welcoming bar, olive trees, retro wall mirrors and Italian posters. But that's not all! It can accommodate 30 guests as easily as it can 1 or 2 with the same level of kindness and attention to customer service. During warmer weather, the outdoor seating option is glorious and frequented by locals and visitors alike.
It has earnt its reputation with a winning combination: great, prompt hospitality and service and chefs whose skill and talent bring out superb flavours from an impressive selection of the freshest ingredients. Branca really does stand out in Oxford. Admittedly it helps if you book at peak evening periods but I have always found that at other times small groups will happily be seated almost instantly. Generously roomy and very family friendly, Branca's delivers on great drinks both hot and cold, as well as the best pizzas this side of the Mediterranean. Win-win with the deli next door that does roaring trade all the time - and why not, with skilled and dedicated service and charm from Fiona, Charlie and the team. At Branca you will be spoilt for choice. The menu specials on the little wall blackboards will make your mouth water.
Take the opportunity to stroll up Walton Well Road and treat yourself to some tasty 'Italiano generosita' from locals who care.
