Went here last Saturday evening as it was closest restaurant to the pub we were drinking in and they'd just stopped doing food where we were!

One of our favourite restaurants but went there on Saturday and an otherwise lovely evening was somewhat tainted by being told (when we ordered the Prosecco) that they had sold out the night before as they were particularly busy! Amazed that their suppliers could not get some to them at the weekend, but even so, possibly a trip to Asda/Sainsburys... More

This is the second time I've visited this restaurant, first time was a year ago at a 21st party. Both occasions the food was very good and the atmosphere convivial. The Chef always comes out of the Kitchen after the meal to circulate with the diners which is always a nice touch. Always go for the fish dishes, these are... More

You are never disappointed at Favoloso's which is why we celebrated by daughters 18th there along with our family of 19 guests! Service was impeccable and the food was delicious in every mouthwatering way. If you are lucky enough to try one of the chef's specially made panna cotta with mango sauce you will know what I am talking about.... More

Lots of choice on the menu and specials boards. Food very well presented and delicious and could not fault it. Portions perhaps a little large but there are options to order smaller ones. Will definitely be returning.

I have no idea how my wife and I had failed to be aware of this restaurant until now. On the basis of our recent lunch there, I would rate the food as being some of the very best we have eaten in Colchester. We shall certainly be returning and we have already recommended it to friends. We went to... More

We booked a table at Favoloso as we had previously eaten here and knew the food was good. My partner was given a special mid-week menu the day before which stated we could eat a three course meal for £22. However, we were told that it was not available, nor was the £28.95 deal available, despite having been given it... More
