Very consistent quality from this fabulous restaurant in St Albans by the clock tower. The calamari starter had a light batter, with fresh tartar sauce. I went twice in the same week and had a americana pizza with extra mozzarella and italian sausage. The dishes as plentiful and the service is friendly. You need to book for sure. We got... More

The price is the same here as the big names; the staff are more welcoming and knowledgeable; the food is better, as is the environment. Ps. The Pizza and Risotto we had was incredible, thank you very much

This place is basically good Italian food, smart but really relaxed. Good music and friendly (and generally hot) staff.

We love it here, the kids love it here - it's perfect for everyone. Pizzas taste great and are really good value. The remaining menu is also delicious with some wonderful specials. My only slight criticism would be that they should open 30mins earlier on a week night - then I'd go more often.
