We ate here tonight for the first time and really enjoyed it. Great atmosphere, relaxed and bustling, has an authentic Italian feel to it. We ate deep fried mozarella balls, a fantastic salad and shared a pizza with three drink drinks and dessert and a peppermint tea, all for just under £40. The pizza and salad were superb. Friendly staff.... More

You must try this restaurant. It's amazing. We arrived & our table wasn't ready so they apologised & gave us drinks on the house. When we sat down the staff were so attentive. The food just kept coming & it was amazing! Lovely atmosphere! We will definitely be going again very soon!

A group of us went here on a Saturday night and I could not fault the place. The food was fantastic, the staff were accommodating and extremely friendly. It's a good place to go with all ages. Also the menu is very reasonably priced. Will be going back many a time!!!

We've eaten here a few times and always been happy with the food. The pizzas are amazing and you can get them to trashes home too. Tiny restaurant but very friendly and helpful.

Went here for the lunch deal and had a delicious pepperoni pizza and an amazing pasta dish with blue cheese. Excellent service and very good value make this somewhere we will return.

Having been in St. Albans for 3 months and visited once before, there is an apparent mass of chain restaurants in St Albans. The staff are friendly, food great, clearly loads of regulars. Value is superb and it's all pretty simple but great! Will be back, regularly! Refreshing change.

Another delicious dinner at La Cosa Nostra. Slight delay being seated despite having booked, but thereafter service was swift without being rushed, friendly and efficient and the owners apologised for the delay with a free digestif. Our orders covered starter salads, pizza, pasta, specials and desserts and all were excellent - obviously freshly prepared with good quality ingredients, flavourful and... More
