    Despite the plethora of restaurants (mostly rip off chains) which have appeared on Colchester's North Hill, the long standing Granata's truly is one of the best.

    I have eaten here on 5-6 occassions and it has never failed to disappoint. There is a friendly, quaint atmosphere in the small venue, which seats only around 30-40 people downstairs. Being a family run, true Italian restaurant they take great pride in their food. The chef, Aldo, cooks using the freshest ingredients and will even do dishes to order if you give notice. Seafood is a speciality, and at a superb price too. The portions are equally good, with more than enough to fill you up.

    It astounds me that people buy into the fake, fast food, boil in the bag concepts of Strada and Ask, when there is quality across the street like this. Look out for this hidden jewel and try it!

    Great value lunch menu. Small but had plenty of atmosphere. Owner looks a little grumpy at times but don't be put off
