I went with a friend who said he had eaten at Wildwood once before but couldn't remember what it was like. That should have been a warning sign but I was too hungry to take note.

I ordered the house red which tasted (and looked) like it had been watered down. We skipped starters and I had the spaghetti bolognese, which is a pretty simple dish, by anyone's standards.
I knew it was bolognese because it looked like bolognese, but it was so tasteless that it could have been anything. Even the sprinkling of parmesan from the moody blonde waitress didn't bring it back to life. The only reason I ate it was because I was hungry and it was inoffensive.
My friend had the duck pizza and said: "Yeah, it's okay".

If you like 'okay' food, this is the restaurant for you. If you want better tasting food but within a similar price range, I'd recommend Zizzi - or Giraffe, which was a surprise hit.

We were visiting Chelmsford and decided to have lunch at La Tasca, since we had been to the ones in London a few times.

The service and atmosphere were good, well catered for babies too. However the food was very disappointing. We ordered a combo dish made out of various tapas:

The paella was really overcooked and had vinegar in it, the meatballs quality was very poor (tasted like tinned meatballs), the chorizo cooked in red wine was actually fried chorizo slices floating in uncooked wine, the patatas bravas were soggy and had no seasoning at all. The only decent tapa was the calamares and the spanish tortilla.

We complained and got our bill cut, but the waiter was unable to explain why so many dishes were so poorly cooked, he just said the chef was relatively new. The other waitress didn't speak English or Spanish.

I'm Spanish and know how those dishes should taste, and they tasted nothing like Spanish food.

 

Disappointing

Hiding behind the franchise they don't feel the need to produce quality food or service. Very disappointed every time we have been. We have now learnt to stay away!
