Food very disappointing, lasagne was inedible. Wine was expensive and a splash of soda cost £3. No atmosphere so won’t be visiting again.

Absolutely loved this place, staff were extremely friendly, food was very good and it's beautifully decorated inside with a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Already booked to return and it might just be my new favourite restaurant in Chelmsford!
