We had a very good evening here. The service was excellent and even though we were the last to leave and it was getting late we were not rushed at all. The portion sizes were good overall and the quality also. We ordered some good wines so it wasn't a cheap evening however we didn't feel cheated. Would recommend

We try to go to Intimo a couple of times per month because we always have a great meal and enjoy the great atmosphere. The Italian background music and great food makes you want to book the first flight out to Italy. I recommend the Linguine Pescatore as a main course, it is always a winner for me. Then washing...

We ate here on a Travelzoo offer and although there was a special menu for the offer there were plenty of choices. There was a slight hiccup with our starters but it was handled very professionally and to our satisfaction. The replacements were delicious as was the rest of the meal. I had mentioned the meal was a continuation of... More

We visited this restaurant for the second time recently. We last visited exactly a year ago and we were slightly worried that things might have changed. Not a bit of it. Just as good, just as friendly. You have to love an Italian lady who tells you the french saving on is better than the Italian house wine and the... More

I have booked with intimo for my birthday a few times now, and I never leave disappointed! The owner Juliana is always so warm and welcoming and the general atmosphere is very lively. The food is delicious and probably the best you will find in maldon! Thank you Julianna for another great birthday night and for my yummy birthday icecream!

Description
As a family we were proud to rescue this building with our own hands and create this dining venue back in 2008, bringing 25 years of restaurant experience to our beautiful town. Our dedication and hard work has been recognised with several high profile awards over the past few years – we were awarded one of ‘The most romantic venues in Essex’, then runner-up ‘Best Restaurant 2014’ (Essex Food & Drink Awards) and also were announced winner of the ‘Good Food Award 2016’ – to name just three.

img_9020Our head chef and family member is constantly striving to offer newly innovated and a la mode dishes for your dining pleasure and we all aim to offer service and hospitality second to none to represent the business we all love.

When the sun shines, our large terrace offers a perfect south facing outside dining experience whilst dining parties who prefer a private space can be accommodated in a separate and exclusive dining room all to themselves – at no additional cost.

We offer a superb selection of specially selected premium wines to suit all budgets and our homemade breads and desserts have to be tried!

Whatever your requirements, be it a romantic meal for two or a large celebration meal, we are all on hand to make it special and go the extra mile. If you care to peruse our menus you’ll observe some super dishes prepared with passion to suit every taste. Every dish and sauce is made from scratch to order, never before, and is therefore totally fresh and even variable to taste. We invite you to try our award winning food at fixed prices by opting for our set menus which unusually contain most of our finest dishes. We even have this option available for Saturday night!

So don’t delay; call up and reserve your table and see for yourself what we can do to make your meal a memorable one.
