Face of the High Street: Ozzy - Mezzaluna


This is Ozzy, who three years ago this month took over ownership of the lively West Street Italian restaurant, Mezzaluna. Originally from Turkey, Ozzy has been in Bristol for 20 years and has fallen in love with the city’s charm. It’s easy to catch his eyes lighting up when he talks about his love for Bristol. What he loves the most is how amazing the people are and how strong the community spirit is, especially in Bedminster.  

An engineer by trade but with a past in hospitality management, Ozzy craved the connection to people that the restaurant business provided and left the engineering world to buy Mezzaluna. Over the years Ozzy has added his touch to the restaurant; a colourful interior, a menu full of delicious Italian classics of pasta and pizza and a garden seating area that is second to none.

Alongside Ozzy, at the heart of the restaurant, is an incredible team of staff. Most of them have been at Mezzaluna for over two years and are a tight-knit, incredible group that take pride in providing excellent service to their guests and creating an atmosphere that people continue to return to.

Visit Ozzy and the team at Mezzaluna Monday 11.00am-10.00pm. Tuesday-Saturday 11.00am-11.00pm and Sundays 11.00am-9.00pm for brunch, lunch, dinner or just a drink or two from the very well stocked bar, the amazing food and the atmosphere are sure to have you planning your next visit.
