Popped in for late lunch with my daughter, who needs gluten free food. We both had goats cheese salad, my daughter had gluten free bread. Service was a bit indifferent and casual, but fairly prompt.

We often visit. Sometimes just for a coffee, which is the best around, and sometimes for a Panini or some pasta. It is always good. The Italian dolci are also great.

Not an all rounder at all this is worth a visit because of its food and it serves peroni which I wasn't expecting from a deli.

Freshest, best-tasting focaccia I've had in a very long time. And fillings were generous and tasty. Not cheap but then it was huge so good value! Service was good and friendly too. Shame about the coffee which, though not bad, wasn't anywhere near as good as Italian coffee can and should be.

Lovely Italian food with a good selection of Italian produce for sale in nice surroundings .Coffee is great and always just right. I normal have grilled chicken with Mediterranean vegetables focaccia, a little taste of Italy in hertford. Love going here for a Friday lunch treat to myself. Would highly recommend.

Lovely coffee and excellent food especially the almond croissant! Service is friendly and fast; and a really good atmosphere. If it was twice the size with a little more room between the tables it would be even better. But perhaps compact and cosy is more continental and friendly. However to sum up: Top marks! Love you Jo; keep it up.

Giambrone's is by far the best lunch spot in Hertford, it offers fantastic Italian food at reasonable prices. We have eaten the various pasta and risotto numerous times and have always found them to be excellent. They clearly use fresh ingredients and have a very good chef who knows authentic Italian cooking. The panini and focaccia are also very good... More

Had such a lovely time here. Was with my family and had the most amazing spaghetti with prawns and then treated myself to some cakes and the best coffee I've ever had in my life! The staff were all friendly and the manager was such a laugh! She had us all giggling and added to the atmosphere and whole day... More

Giambrone's is a lovely independent coffee shop/ restaurant.Nothing beats a good cup of Italian coffee and a slice of panettone for breakfast. Love it!
