A culinary heaven at the outskirts of Essex and Hertfordshire
Welcome to La Bontà,
a family-run Italian restaurant and delicatessen.
We serve high quality, fresh, and homemade Italian food prepared with love and care by our Chef, Paolo, who has over 35 years of worldwide high standard experience in culinary goodness.
We are proud of taking extra care of our guests in a friendly and elegant environment and are looking forward to welcoming you to our restaurant.
Italian food at its finest.
We are now open from 12pm for a new brunch menu, the usual A la Cart restaurant menu and the collection menu. We update the menus on the website very regularly so check out what's new!
Delivery and collection available!
We are keeping up to date with mandatory government Covid-19 safety measures.
We require guests to wear face masks at all times unless seated. This includes when entering and leaving the restaurant, whilst waiting to be seated or to collect a takeaway, and also when you leave the table to use the bathroom.
We have one meter social distancing between tables and all staff who serve and assist you will be wearing face masks.
Closing time is no later than 10pm and we require a phone number and full name for bookings, which are limited to maximum 6 people from one household.
We now have a very limited number of seats indoors due to social distancing between tables, so we will now be offering the evening reservation slots starting at 18:00 to 18:30 finishing at 20:00, and from 20:00 finishing at 22:00.
If you have any queries don't hesitate to call us on 01279 871989.
