Friendly service

Helpful friendly staff to us being tourists in this area. Food was fine enough good enough but wouldn't say you must visit. Small noisy restaurant tables close to each other But worth a visit for a friends meal not a choice for a romantic meal

I have been here many times and the pizza and pasta is always perfect. Great for a quick lunch with their lunch deals or with family/friends/date in the evening with a bottle of wine. Service is great, run by Italian family, always very welcoming you feel like your in their house.

In theory this place should be good. Freshly made pizzas, impressive pizza ovens, indie owned and in an up and coming area of town. However, they are very very tight with toppings and the range of drinks is very old fashioned. slightly odd service, bit unsure!

Small, noisy place, not for romance or fine dining! Pizza is fab, wine is drinkable, tiramisu very good, service occasionally shambolic but well-meaning and friendly. I couldn't stop eating the pizza even though I was full! Not particularly cheap. Recommended.

Six of us had dinner here. We've been before so knew talking would be difficult (and it was!) but the noise of everyone's chatter just adds to the great atmosphere. The staff are very friendly. The food is really good and so is the service. There's outside dining too and they also do a really cheap set price lunch. I'm... More

We have been meaning to visit this Italian trattoria for ages and it was certainly worth the wait! Authentic Italian food and very friendly Italian staff. Best pizza we have eaten in St. Albans and the meal very reasonably priced. A great local Italian and we will definitely be back.

I've been coming here for a few years now and the food is still as good as the first time I visited. The staff are real characters and all really friendly. Plus the food is very reasonably priced as well. I'll be visiting here for many years to come, even if I'm not living in St Albans!

Cosa Nostra was huge fun, the food and wine were excellent and the ambience great. We were a tiny bit rushed as we had made a late booking for 4 in what was already a busy evening , the staff couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and efficient, all in all very good, we will give ourselves more time next...
