This is a traditional family run Italian restaurant of a type you wouldn't expect in Essex. I have been here many times and can't remember the last time that I looked at the menu. I usually take the advice of the Chef/Owner for the several specials of the day On this occasion I had anti-pasta, spaghetti and fillet of sea-bass.Every... More

I had read the TA reviews for some time and wanted to see for myself whether they were justified. I was not disappointed! My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We both had the specials offered, one cod and one lamb which were very tasty and described best as traditional home cooked food. The... More

The governor and chef runs a great place and serves excellent food. The specials are superb but the medallions of steak in red wine on then main menu really take some beating. We have been coming for many years and the standards have not slipped.

We have been going to this restaurant for the last 20 years. Alberto is the owner chef. Because he knows us well we very rarely have anything off the menu. He tells us what he has special that night and we always go for it. He has never done us wrong. If you like authentic Italian food use this restaurant.... More

My family have been coming to the Bicicletta for over 15 years. We regularly visit Italy, and this restaurant serves the best Italian food we've ever had. There are many Italian families that visit the restaurant, which underlines the traditional menu. Alberto the chef makes everything from beautiful simple starters to complex main courses. Wonderful risottos, hand made pastas and... More

This restaurant had been recommended by friends so we thought we'd give it a try. I'm so glad that we did ! From the moment that we walked in, we were greeted and treated like old friends and shown to our table.
