Service without a smile...

We arrived for lunch a little later than the norm, around 2.30. There were only a few tables with diners in them. We waited to be served and were greeted eventually by a waiter who seemed annoyed we were there. He took us to a table for two near the back of the restaurant, near the till, the... read more

Good food as always. New items on the menu and the pork belly is definitely to be recommended. We were a party of 4 and all enjoyed the food we ordered. Restaurant was quite busy and lively for a Wednesday night. 30% discount count on mains was a nice incentive to dine there too.

Unhelpful staff, not even trying to help us with selecting gluten free choices. Didn't accept valid student card. Shame as I've enjoyed many trips to other branches before. Very limited choice for gluten free eaters especially for deserts

Four of us arrived in Chelmsford on business...there was only one place to eat...Prezzo...it's a Monday and I've been before (and everything else is shut) so Prezzo lords it over the competition which, as a matter of fact on a Monday, contains not much more than Subway and possibly a MacDonalds. I don't know, maybe there isn't a MacDonalds... So,... More

We love the Prezzo chain but whilst this restaurant maintained the perfectly good food quality it lacked the service to go with it! 1st time I have ever deducted the 'optional' discretionary charge. It was like the waitresses were doing us a favour being there. Very grumpy and huffy when we asked for missing cutlery, ordering food and the bill.... More

Friendly welcome, efficient seating. Food all excellent. Pleasant atmosphere. All courses came with good intervals. Wine selection varied and comprehensive. Staff discretely attentive. An overall great celebration evening with three generations of our family.

popped in for lunch before the cinema and its a good one for the prezzo chain. the restaurant and ambiance is lovely. the service is polite, friendly and mature. food was good although a slightly smaller portion with a little more ingredients would make it 5 stars instead of 4 for me. had spaghetti carbonara with chicken, needed a bit...

The restaurant is to be found in Baddow Road, Chelmsford and is very spacious, modern and clean. You can see the chefs working and that helps to create a lovely atmosphere. The staff were helpful and friendly and there is a great choice from their extensive menu.
