Eight of us went for dinner to this compact and bijou restaurant. The service was excellent, the food delicious, and we came away for £45 per couple including wine and a tip. You can't say fairer than that. Will definitely be going again!

We were after a simple and swift lunch and this place exceeded this. Well cooked pizzas and a very tasty pasta dish (went for the fish one, which was very tasty and had lots of mussels, octupi etc.). It's a good lunch deal including a soft drink and the service was attentive and friendly.

Went with friends for the wife's birthday evening out! A small Italian bistro type restaurant in the heart of the conservation area of St. Albans.

We had ,for example, calamari starters,... More

Our 2nd visit here and we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. My partner is v v fussy when it comes to steak, he ordered fillet steak and thought it was perfect, best steak he's had in a very long time. Highly recommended.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years and years.......it always delivers high quality food Could do with more fresh seafood on the menu would be my one constructive criticism The service is excellent and gives Cosa Nostra a very friendly and authentic Italian feel which is exactly what you want when eating pizza or pasta.

We have been going to La Cosa Nostra since before our daughter was born and she's 16 now, it's her favourite restaurant and the first thing she says when asked where does she want to go. The friendly atmosphere when you arrive, the quality of the food and the service all add up to a great lunch or evening meal... More

The service here makes you feel like its your local, so friendly!! And absolutley faultless food every time. Highly recommended. Try the arrabiata or the calzone, my personal favourites. Particularly nice in the summer eating outside.

If you are looking for Authentic Italian food, then La cosa Nostra is the place. It looks small but very cosy and nice atmosphere inside. Its a family run and their menu is very different from other Italian restaurants. You will find many receipes which you find in any traditional Italian kitchen. I liked main course, specially Pizza's as compare... More
