Visited for the first time for a family meal. I chose the deep fried mozarella and the nettuno pizza. Both were delicious and piping hot. We had a few bottles of wine which were very nice and the irish coffee went down well. We were all too full to have a dessert. There was a good atmosphere and it made a change from the identkit chain italian restaurants. Would definetly return.

Food in St. Albans doesn't come much better than this. Had the seafood risotto which was out of this world, would thoroughly recommend. Very well priced for the quality of food and service you receive.

Make sure you book well in advance as this is one of the most popular restaurants around.

I would strongly recommend this cosy place to eat at anytime of the day. It does offer a wide range of food and cater for cealiacs - gluten free options are available. Staff and chef are very friendly with very good knowledge and recommendations enjoy your visit there :)

Yes you read it correctly, this little gem is the reason I never eat out at Italian restaurants. They are all the same with so little filling, topping, seafood etc and lack of depth of flavour that I had given up! We popped in here on Saturday and had the most delightful lunch with a fantastic bottle of Montepulciano. The most delicious, piping hot garlic bread and a seafood risotto that was so deeply full of flavour and not to mention the amount and quality of seafood. My fiance had an incredible pasta dish, one that usually would fill a corner but not delight. It too had a depth of flavour which was wonderful. Generous portions and fairly priced. My only issue is that we aren't closer, but perhaps my waist line will be happier

4 of us had booked for lunch but we were seated in front of the serving area so I kept getting bumped into by the waiting staff! The food was tasty - but nothing very different to all the other Italian places in St Albans. Lunchtime deal price was good for those who like pizza and pasta but other prices quite dear if not having that special. Only concern was the music was quite loud so older members of our party struggled to hear. Staff were friendly and we stayed quite a while and weren't hurried along like some places.
