I have been in Bar1 several times since the first time I went there to eat to try different dishes. What I love about it apart from being a family run restaurant - which makes it very frendly - is the food, fresh real italian cuisine, made with products imported from Italy and local quality fresh products... it is a very good experience and you can keep coming back to try new things on and off the menu - if Toni is in the kitchen he will sure create a new and surprising dish for you. The Tiramisu is amazing homemade, you barely resist not to eat another ... Overall great food, friendly and comfortable atmosphere a place not to miss if you are in Chelmsford or just passing through ..
One think I find important is that is an Italian restaurant where people do speak italian and you get the real thing!

Came here for Valentines and found amazing food!

The waiter is very friendly, the kind of character you could have a long conversation with, the food tastes even better than it looks (alough it looks too good to eat as shown in pictures) we had Gamberoni Meridonale for mains and semmifreddo for dessert. Other than the food I have visited before for drinks and the cocktails are fresh and value for money, espically on happy hour 5-8pm, its like a london restaurant/bar but in essex.

Will deffinatly be back for more!!

A great evening on 15th Feb with friendly and expert waiter, lovely Valentine's menu beautifully cooked by il padrone and the wonderful voice of Pedro Lopes especially when singing "Caruso". How on earth did they get someone of his talent? What a wonderful way to spend an evening. Many thanks Tony and team.

We had a lovely evening here. The food was wonderful, as was the service. Straight away we were told about happy hour and the cocktails on offer. Which I must say went down very well. The menu had a good selection of pizza, pasta and other dishes and my partner had the swordfish from the specials menu which was excellent. The restaurant itself is modern and clean looking and there is a bar downstairs for those wishing to continue the evening. Being the first weekend after Christmas everywhere was fairly quiet but we still had a great time.
