Great food, great sevice...............BUT the noise level was something else!!!

It became a competion to see who could talk (more like shout) the loudest to be heard above a couple of 'hen night' tables ..........ruined the whole experience :-(

I've been to quieter Premier football grounds on a Saturday afternoon :-).............take a megaphone................or ear plugs :-)

We have almost exhausted places to eat in Chelmsford and decided to give Prezzo a turn. 4 of us went there for lunch and 2 of us are vegetarian. We sat in a booth which we all liked. The place was empty when we got there around 12.30 on a Friday. We ordered a vegetarian pizza which had a choice of base, a seafood pasta, arancini balls with a tomato sauce and a side salad and pasta al forno. Every bite was very good. My friends really enjoyed the whole lot. I liked the arancini balls and the dressing they offer for the salad is excellent. We were pleasantly surprised and would certainly return. The place was more or less full by the time we finished. We were offered puddings which looked lovely, but we couldn't dislocate our necks any further to fit them in! The only niggle was they would not split the bill, they insisted it came as one amount. I don't imagine it would have been difficult. Otherwise the service was fine and the food above average and worth returning for.

Although the food was ok the service really was dreadful, shambollic and disorganised, had to ask 3 times for every drink we ordered and when abandoned after desert we headed to the bar where we were completely ignored and had to queue up for our bill (which they claimed we had already paid!!). There were also several really rowdy hen type groups in who got increasingly loud, actually shouting at certain points who never seemed to be asked to tone it down. To top it off they clearly had no intention of retuning our change and so were obliged to leave an unwilling tip when our taxi arrived. Rubbish. Go to Olio instead for great pasta and great service.

The food was as expected although two of our party ordered the two pasta option and each of the two plates served was a full size portion which they found quite off putting. We seemed to have 3 people serving us and communication between them was a bit haphazard so one of the starters was missed from the order and then brought later when the waitress was reminded. Even though someone was still eating the main courses were brought to the table and had to be sent back.

There were only 6 of us eating and the restaurant was not full so they should have been able to cope.
