We have eaten at the restaurant many times and it's consistently good, this time we dined at lunchtime when they have an offer throughout the week and is very good value

This is one of those hidden gems in St Albans. If you can get in, then do so! Food is fabulous, service is too. Atmosphere is typical Italian, very laid back. One of our very favourite places in St Albans
