Our History

Filippo was born in the small village of Grotte, Sicily in 1942. As a teenager he moved to Bristol and dreamed of bringing all the warmth and passion of his family's cooking and hospitality to this little part of town. The result was La Campagnuola, opened in 1980 and now run by Filippo's children, Vincenzo and Mariangela who are keeping their father's dream alive by continuing to introduce customers to authentic, lovingly crafted Sicilian food.
