Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A great welcome from Leon and the team. Excellent food and wine. Friendly service and will definitely be going back. Steak was perfect and accompanying veg a must.

8 people celebrating a birthday, table booked for 8pm… we didn’t get our mains until 10pm! Service is like faulty towers, running up and down the restaurant, asked for a menu (we had 1 to share between all of us for 30 minutes) and kept being ignored. 7/8 main dishes were left uneaten … we would have sent back but had waited 2 hours for the dishes in the first place. Chicken dry & inedible, pasta undercooked, fritto misto missing any prawns, poached egg on the menu when delivered was a fried egg? When the female staff member asked us how everything was and we politely told her, she actually didn’t say anything at all and walked away. We could see staff talking about our table at the bar area until eventually the manager did visit our table and ask what he could do? He suggested removing the wine off our bill… when the bill was delivered 2 additional mains had been added totalling £42. Disappointed to see a once fantastic Italian in Chelmsford reduced to this, won’t be returning unfortunately.

Excellent Italian in Chelmsford. Delicious food and service. My favourite restaurant! Would definitely recommend the Pollo L'unico! And the Espresso Martini's!

I can see what they’re trying to accomplish but they have a long way to go.. service was almost laughable watching the struggling staff trying to run up and down the restaurant. Half way through our meal we were asked by the manager to move tables so they could accommodate more customers. A simple pasta dish was made from packet pasta and was undercooked, surely an Italian restaurant should be making fresh pasta themselves it’s really not that difficult to do. The ambiance is basically a small room crammed full of people with crashes and bangs coming from all over the place. I couldn’t wait to leave and I won’t be back.

What a genuinely lovely evening! Booked solely on the reviews, we were not disappointed. everything written about the customer service, welcome received and delicious food was all spot on.. freshly made and delicious it really is a little gem and for a casual, sociable dining experience I couldn’t recommend highly enough. Thankyou Eddie and your sister , super friendly hosts. Hope to visit again if we’re in Chelmsford.

Welcomed by Eddie who is a great host, vast menu to cater for all tastes, food was excellent and good value for money. Got to be one of the best independent restaurants in Chelmsford.

What a find. We were looking for somewhere local, not a chain restaurant, to celebrate our anniversary and are so glad we stumbled accross L'unico. Staff were attentive, but not intrusive. Food was delicious and authentic. Lovely wine selection and a touch of lemoncello to finish off. Perfect.

My wife and some female friends had dinner yesterday for the first time. The food, atmosphere, and service were exceptional, as we would expect from Eddy. Definitely now our number one place to eat in Chelmsford. Highly Recommended. PS. Thanks Eddy, for the sample takeaway Risotto which was delicious.

When L’unico opened on the same site as a much loved and frequented Italian restaurant I initially dismissed it as “yet another Italian” restaurant.. Last night we decided to give it a try & my goodness how I had to eat my words. All 3 courses were outstanding & clearly superior to any other Chelmsford Italian restaurant. Service was relaxed & friendly whilst still very professional. Clearly destined to be our new much visited eatery.

Went last Friday to this lovely little Restaurant, Service was very good and the food was excellent, one of the best fillet steaks i have had for some time, I can highly recommend this restaurant and is great to have something independent in town rather than the continual restaurant chains!!!!!

Amazing food! Amazing service and all round brilliant evening! Staff were attentive and funny (even helping my dad read the menu by turning the lights up in the whole restaurant as he forgot his glasses) very lovely restaurant and relaxed atmosphere. The food was stunning! We had the mainly fish dishes which all tasted beautifully fresh and a very well cooked steak dish which was cooked to perfection. Could not recommend this restaurant enough and really is a hidden gem! We will definitely be back!
