Love the crispy base of the pizza, woodfired pizza does make a huge difference, would have gone a little bit further with the baking in the fire though, more crasty Base would be appreciated

I would not go there to sit outside. If you are going there to sit indoors though, the food is exceptional.

Food was great and the servers were very lovely, unfortunately everyone around us needed something and was waiting a while to order anything or have any real service. It wasn’t overly busy just unfortunately just poorly managed.

We arrived late-due to not having been in Colchester before. It’s in a busy area but a quite & tucked away location.

Service was amazing and staff were understanding and helpful knowing we had got lost! Food is incredible, shame we were too full for dessert.

Will be back next time ever in Colchester!

We are repeat customers and can happily recommend Dough & Co as a great place for a family meal out - we went with our sons aged 7 and 5 and had a great time!

No spinach on my pizza as described, no cracked black pepper which is strange for Italian! Otherwise food is ok and service is efficient

My pizza very dry friends risotto very garlicky. Annoyed service charged already added to bill but we were not informed as when we paid because we were not told, one of our party paid by card & then we were unable to make the choice of how much service charge we wished to leave.

We were the only people eating in, service was terrible, food took ages to arrive and when it did my risotto was dubious to say the least and my daughters pizza lacked topping. Desert was sat on the plate for so long that I felt like getting up and helping myself after the chef kept ringing the bell... and they had the cheek to add service charge to my bill.

Gorgeous food as always, glad to be back in our favourite Colchester restaurant following lockdown easing!

We now drive back to Colchester for it from the other side of Essex, where we moved to during the middle of lockdown.

No social distancing from staff or masks being worn , waitress had limited knowledge of menu
No clear one way system and not enforced
Service charge not optional and 10% for a table of two with sub par service is high

The pizzas were tasty but apart from that it wasn’t that great. The waitress forgot to bring out our starter so I had to remind her while we were eating our main course. The beers were very expensive for a little bottle of lager too. There was plenty of staff around but we couldn’t get anyone’s attention when we wanted more drinks after our plates were taken and we were just waiting for the bill to come but it never did. So we walked to the door and got someone’s attention to pay on the way out. All in all, not that impressed.

I usually book Prezzo but was disappointed last time I went so decided to try somewhere new. I am so pleased I did ! There was a nice relaxing atmosphere and not too noisy so we could talk. We had to wait a little while before our order was taken but that wasn't a problem. We had a mushroom pizza and it was delicious ! Full of flavour. Also shared a goats cheese flatbread, which was massive, and a salad.
If i decide to go " Italian" for dinner again then this is where i would come. Very nice food and staff were friendly.

Pizza base could be more crispy, seemed to be a little undercooked. Some of the ingredients aren’t as good as they could be, including the mushrooms and meat selection. Could be better if comparing to an authentic pizza.

Social distancing amongst the staff in the kitchen was not great. On reflection I should have moved to the seat further away from the toilet door. The food was good and hot. Unfortunately this was not the right venue for the occasion. Not your fault. I'm sure the younger members of my family would love it.
