Great little Italian

Really good central Italian in town. Great atmosphere, always busy, can be hot during the summer. Does the most amazing salads - really tasty and huge! Delicious and would definitely recommend

Overall the food and service make up for a slightly chaotic setting and loud music which isn't needed in such a busy place. Drinks are as expected for a good Italian - nice wine, standard beers and a reasonable soft drink selection. The food menu is varied with some nice specials on the day we visited. My pizza was a...

A firm favourite for all my family and friends in the St Albans area. The food is always excellent, the wine is wonderful and the service fantastic. It's a lovely restaurant, cozy in the winter, light and airy in the summer as the windows open fully. Check out the specials board...they are always good. Never fails to impress. Thank you... More

The wait staff were very attentive just like those you'd find in a 5* restaurant. The whole family enjoyed their food. Seafood Lugini, Ravioli & the pizza's are a must have. Will 100% return. Value for money is great for the quality and the atmosphere is lovely.
