Description: As a family we were proud to rescue this building with our own hands and create this dining venue back in 2008, bringing 25 years of restaurant experience to our beautiful town. Our dedication and hard work has been recognised with several high profile awards over the past few years – we were awarded one of ‘The most romantic venues in Essex’, then runner-up ‘Best Restaurant 2014’ (Essex Food & Drink Awards) and also were announced winner of the ‘Good Food Award 2016’ – to name just three. img_9020Our head chef and family member is constantly striving to offer newly innovated and a la mode dishes for your dining pleasure and we all aim to offer service and hospitality second to none to represent the business we all love. When the sun shines, our large terrace offers a perfect south facing outside dining experience whilst dining parties who prefer a private space can be accommodated in a separate and exclusive dining room all to themselves – at no additional cost. We offer a superb selection of specially selected premium wines to suit all budgets and our homemade breads and desserts have to be tried! Whatever your requirements, be it a romantic meal for two or a large celebration meal, we are all on hand to make it special and go the extra mile. If you care to peruse our menus you’ll observe some super dishes prepared with passion to suit every taste. Every dish and sauce is made from scratch to order, never before, and is therefore totally fresh and even variable to taste. We invite you to try our award winning food at fixed prices by opting for our set menus which unusually contain most of our finest dishes. We even have this option available for Saturday night! So don’t delay; call up and reserve your table and see for yourself what we can do to make your meal a memorable one.

Our second visit and have no hesitation in going again. With an owner who is clearly passionate about the food she serves and very attentive staff made the evening a very pleasant experience.

“Dinner”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Food was fresh and cooked to perfection. Pizza was tasty and 50% bigger than a pizza express. We also had starters and dessert, all good. We were served by the charming and clearly dedicated owner.

“Excellent restaurant with lovely staff”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We have been to this restaurant 3 times now & cannot fault it. The food is varied, well cooked and well presented. There is a great atmosphere & the staff could not be more helpful. Altogether a lovely evening out

“A decent lunch for two”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

We were here for Sunday lunch, with a Travelzoo £25 for 2 courses voucher. Won't mention the glass of wine 'thrown in', rather mean measure. At the price we paid, it was good value. The food was freshly cooked and well presented, and tasty [but not, in our view, particularly 'Italian' in flavours]. If we'd been here for a special occasion, would have been disappointed by lack of table covering and throw-away napkins. Friendly service and very clean.

“excellent meal in pleasant surroundings”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We have eaten here before and decided to return as we had enjoyed our meals previously. I am pleased to say the standard was just as good on this visit. We dined with another two couples and each couple had a £25.00 Travelzoo voucher for a two course meal with a glass of wine for two. There was some confusion over the terms of the Travelzoo voucher but this was soon sorted out by the friendly waitress. The food was delicious although the service was a little slow, possibly because it was quite busy for a Thursday evening. However, we were happy to wait between courses so we could have a chat! As is usual in Italian restaurants the beer was quite expensive at £4.50 for a 500ml bottle, although it was nice to have real ales as well as the usual Italian lagers to choose from. The wine was of a good quality and very reasonably priced so we had a bottle of white and a bottle of red, as well as two bottles of Hobgoblin real ale. We gave in to the dessert menu so our total bill was quite a lot more than the voucher price - paying an additional £75.00 between us before the tip. Without the Travelzoo deal it would have been quite expensive at £225.00+ for six but I still think it would be worth the cost. Highly recommended.
