Good Food Guide
“A cheering place to be – on a cold Sunday night when all other Oxford cafés we surveyed were deserted, it was busy and welcoming”, was how one visitor summed up this good-natured all-day Italian eatery. The unfussy mood is matched by competitive prices and you can get a tast of things to come from the cicchetti (small plates of, say, king prawns or salt cod crocchette) that kick-start proceedings her. Pasta and pizza are first class, while bream, 28-day dry-aged ribeye, and specials such as “top-class’ guinea fowl supreme.
Excellent food and service
If you find yourself in Jericho and in need of some delicious tasting, good looking food, check out Branca. They have great lunch deals on offer, with a good range of meat and vegetarian options, all delivered in time to savour each mouthful and enjoy conversations with your fellow diners before heading back to work or on with your day....
Wonderful birthday dinner
One of my favourite Oxford restaurants, all 8 of us had delicious food at Branca last night. Great ambience, lovely menu, fab staff! A very enjoyable evening!
Our second home...
Branca has become our favorite restaurant. Amazing staff, amazing food and lovely atmosphere. I love the mean time ales and the king prawn bruschetta is to die for. Awesome risotto's, always great specials and we're made to feel so relaxed. It's rare nowadays to find a restaurant that is consistently good.
Delicious food at affordable price
We opted to try the lunch menu and could not have chosen wiser. The offer is wide and you can mix and match as you please. We opted to try a risotto with pumpkin (spectacular), a pizza (probably the best pizza I have tried in Oxford, some vegetarian antipasti and pasta. Everything was simply delicious, and the price for the lunch menu is very affordable.
This is the best Italian restaurant we've been in for a long while. We called in on the off-chance on a Tuesday night and had to wait 10 minutes or so for a table, but the service, meal and atmosphere was fabulous. I would recommend booking before you visit as this place is good!

The menu was intelligent and restrained, much better than those students deserve.

Bustling restaurant with a spacious, modern interior and French doors opening onto a courtyard terrace. The menu is a roll call of Italian classics: portions are generous and lunch deals, good value. Friendly young staff, adjoining deli.
