Visited one cold night in Jan, we needed heating up as our heating had packed up. Bad choice, it was just as cold in the resturant, we sat in our coats.
The food was ok, if fact quite tasty and the wine list was good and great value, also good choice of music, it was very quiet as you would have expected, the manageress was very attentive and made us very welcome, we would go back, definately.
The atmosphere was pleasent and we left saying we would return.

My husband went to this restaurant. We were looking forward to it as a number of local friends had recommended. We were very disappointed. The portions were very small. I ordered a salad for main course which. Wad bought up and then whisked away again by our waitress because my husbands pasta wasn't ready! The waitress then cleared the table next to us. We were appaulled when we saw her put wine glasses rim down on the floor while she wiped the table and then put them back on the table. Needless to say we won't be going here again.

We visited this restaurant on a Friday evening and had a table booked for 7.30pm, we were not aware that children eat free until 7pm, so it was quite busy with families so if you’re looking for a quite romantic meal, book a table later on.
The food and service was impeccable, and the price was very reasonable. We indulged in entrees, starters, mains and desserts with a bottle of wine and 2 bottles of water for a comfortable £70. would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back again, all be it a little later.

Just what dunmow needed a beautiful italian restaurant, the food was great, my ribeye steak was cooked just as i ordered it. The service was fantastic, and as it was my birthday they made a great fuss over us and given us a drink on the house. I would advize anyone and everyone to try bel patio, and what a great place for a celebration. Thabks you bel patio for making my night one to remember and serving the most beautiful italian food xxx
