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.

My favourite lunch in St Albans. The pizzas are amazing and outstanding value for money. Cosy interior.

We started coming over 20 years ago and praise the Lord, it's never changed. Excellent food, "buzzy" atmosphere, lovely staff. Anyone who knows St Alban's also knows this is the best 👍👍👍

This is the sort of restaurant I wish was round the corner from my house. Friendly welcome with decent, reasonably priced food.

I have been to this restaurant numerous times and the food and service has always been good, but last night I ordered a take out Pizza and was extremely unimpressed. I went to collect the pizza after 50 minutes of ordering only to find the order hadn't been taken, so had to wait a further 15 minutes for it to... More
