First time we have ever had dinner in this delightful restaurant right next door to Colchester Castle. Lovely atmosphere from the moment you enter with friendly staff, very attentive and interested. It was especially busy less than two weeks before Xmas and Colchester is always busy on a Saturday night. Quite noisy, with big neighbouring table who seemed to like... More

I suffer from a life threatening food allergy but usually find that reputable restaurants are happy to help so I can stay safe. The staff and manager here were not only rude and dismissive when I asked about ingredients (even though I told them this was for a food allergy) but then they also dropped the ball with the rest...

It was my son's 30th and we booked Mussi's on Saturday 22nd November. The welcome was friendly and proprietor Fulvio Mussi spends time with his customers which is unusual for an owner. I had the last portion of my favourite starter, mussells, having been told that they obtain them from Scotland but don't always serve them unless they are very... More

A good find in Colchester. This is my second visit. A great beetroot ravioli. I have promised myself I will return for the pork belly

We were seated upstairs and it completely lacked atmosphere. Service was good except we found the waitress hard to understand at times,although she was friendly.... More

We were a table of 10 happy people last Saturday 18th October. The food and service were once again excellent. The only unfortunate thing was one main course ordered was unavailable, but this was quickly rectified with an alternative. I had soup to start, osso buco (delicious) and iced parfait. I wasn't planning on having 3 courses but I couldn't... More

We have walked past this restaurant several times and always wanted to visit. We finally got around to going last weekend. The atmosphere was pleasant and we were shown to our table by a friendly and polite man. The menu looked lovely so it was a tough choice. I chose a Caesar salad which I had to send back as... More

Great service, both staff serving had good knowledge of menu items & tastes. They were helpful and attentive throughout as well as friendly and polite. Good specials menu but a little more options needed on the à la crate menu I think. As confused to type of cuisine, I thought it wa s Italian but there was a burger &... More
