You should book ahead for a Saturday as it was busy. The place is not very big, but we got a nice table by the window. The service was efficient and the drinks and food both arrived very quickly. The pizza was pepperoni and gorgonzola which was very tasty. The lasagna was very hot. Finally it was a really cheap... More

Had a lovely meal here on Saturday night. Very busy and buzzing, a full house which was to be expected. Really good food at reasonable prices. Lovely friendly staff which make the place what it is. Well worth a visit and you'll be sure of a warm welcome.

I love this restaurant, and I go whenever I can. One of the best Italian restaurants I've ever found in the UK. The staff are all so lovely, and remember you every time you go (and I don't go overly often, as I do not live locally), and will do whatever they can to ensure you have the best meals.... More

After reading all the great reviews I was excited to visit here. Expecially as it's one one of the cheaper places in St albans to eat. However the food was very average and unexciting. House wine was like vinegar. Nothing special

We tried this little restaurant last Saturday night. It was packed so just as well we booked. Immediately on entering the welcome and atmosphere was great with families and couples all happily enjoying the food and drink. We settled in with a bottle of Multipulchano and browsed the extensive menus. We ordered and the starters came swiftly. I had sardines... More

Been there several times. Fresh tasty food and excellent service. Very reasonable prices. It is best to book a table before you go, restaurant always busy. Highly recommended.

Visited this restaurant with a friend during the week. It was certainly popular. The food is lovely and the service very friendly. Yes it is a little cramped and a little noisy but that all just adds to the atmosphere.
