Miseria e Nobilta Exterior


At Miseria e Nobiltà we offer the finest in authentic traditional Italian cuisine! Located near the famous Colchester Castle, at 11 Queen Street our head chef Giuseppe works hard to provide the highest quality in the food he prepares! 

​We offer perfectly prepared Pizzas and Pasta cooked to perfection, and our wonderful selection of wines is selected for their flavor, and ability to compliment the food we prepare!

Quality is extremely important to us, and we make sure that our ingredients are always fresh! 

Quantity is also an important factor when it comes to the meals we make, and we make sure that there are always an ample amount of ingredients in the toppings of our pizzas! 

We have designed an exceptional menu here, combinations designed to compliment each other, and we are always happy to see new customers!

Miseria e Nobiltà is named after the Italian Movie, starring the incredible actors Antonio De Curtis (TOTO) and Sofia Villani Scicoloni (Sophia Loren) The Restaurant is run by Giuseppe, Alfredo and Antonino. 

The restaurant is incredibly important to us and we are passionate about not only the food we provide, but making our visitor's experience one to remember!

​Recently we have redesigned the interior of our beautiful little restaurant, and we are looking to expand the range of dishes we prepare! 

We have recently added some exceptional vegan dishes to our menu, and we are always eager to adapt to customers needs wherever possible! 

​We are very proud of our reputation on TripAdvisor, and we constantly work hard to maintain the excellence of service our customers have come to expect from us.
