Restaurant review – Tutti Grille-Braintree – Italian & Pizza Restaurants


Restaurant review – Tutti Grille

Tutti Grille Braintree

Tutti Grille Braintree

Tutti Grille is a large restaurant that doesn’t look out of place amongst the other high street eateries. However Tutti is a one off restaurant owned by a former Braintree based company run by Rob & Jules Reeley who have expanded in their area they now live – quite far away in Scotland.

We were warmly welcomed and then surprised at how busy the restaurant was although Thursday night is the new Friday night of course and Thursday is also late night shopping at the rather interesting Braintree Freeport
Designer Village. Well worth a trip and
combining Christmas shopping with dinner
at Tutti.

A tip that the very helpful manager shared with us is that they frequently run special offers with the cinema just across the road – so one to watch out for.

We loved the starters – Marinated Olives,
Tuscan Bruschetta and Sun dried Tomato and Basil Soup. All quite hearty and tasty.

For mains we had Penne Sicilana – with roasted aubergines, courgettes and peppers in a tomato and garlic sauce. I am quite a saucy person (no funny comments please) and they were happy with my request for more sauce.

Hubby had the Funghi pizza and Callum enjoyed the Margarita and again they were happy to hold the cheese and add pineapple too. These pizzas are a great size too.

You won’t go home hungry!
We do like a bit on the side and opted for green beans, garlicky mushrooms and creamed baby spinach and surprisingly we did leave empty plates.

We were too full for a desert however the Key Lime Martini and Pomegranate Martini just hit the spot.

Good atmosphere, good Tuscan influenced food and rather delicious cocktails too. Well worth a visit.
