We had a surprise party here for a family 70th birthday. The team at Bartella's were wonderful. They were open to all of our crazy ideas for decorating the table and for keeping everything a surprise. They personalized the menus and were wonderful when we took so long eating that we kept them past closing time! The food was good,... More

Me and my partner went there Saturday for a lovely meal. We had such a lovely time that I have spread the word and I think we may be sending quite a few others down. Food was superb, service very traditional which is missed in other restaurants I feel. Atmosphere and setting was perfect no matter what the occasion, sitting... More

I almost forgot I had a voucher for a three-course meal with a glass of Prosecco. We were offered the wine as we waited in the comfortable bar area before being shown to our table, which was a nice touch. It is a splendid venue and it was a lovely surprise that the voucher expired on my partner's birthday. A... More

Visited Bartellas on a Groupon and we're treated superbly. The meal was excellent, staff very friendly and obliging, all in all one of the best we've had in Chelmsford. The menu is varied and caters for most tastes and, being fixed price, is great value for money. Bartellas will be first on our list for a meal out in future.

We return every year for our wedding anniversary and in between. We have always received a first class service and the food is always of a high standard.

The welcome was first class, we had drinks before dinner and enjoyed the atmosphere of the bar. When we were ready we were shown to our table, the menu is quite extensive and very reasonable. The waiters were always on hand and nothing was to much trouble, my wife is a allergic to garlic, and when we explained this, the... More

Our first visit to Bartellas, we were greeted in a friendly manner. The food and service was excellent. The young staff were attentive and helpful. Can't believe we've not been here before! We would definitely recommend this lovely restaurant and look forward to visiting again when the restaurant opens in it's new setting in September
