Went for dinner with my girlfriend as was shopping in Watford. When we arrived it was fairly quiet and we had our pick of tables. After we placed our order for vegetarian pasta my girlfriend and I were given our meal by a waiter who hadn't taken our order. When her meal arrived the pasta looked suspiciously like it had... More

If you are looking for a place with real Italian food and Italian staff this is the place to go. If you need romantic evening out then look elsewhere as this is very loud (or should I say lively) place with great atmosphere. I have been eating here for at least 10 years now. Food is delicious and portions are... More

Fair prices, decent enough fayre. The atmosphere can be a flat, and if you visit on Fri/Sat evenings the staff rush you a little to release the tables, whipping the plates away at the last bite, offering desert immediately! No real complaints if you want mediocre Italian food at a fair price.

It is a lovely place for a lively night out with friends. It's loud, so if you want a romantic meal is not the place. The food is really good. pizza being the best! With stone oven

Had a great meal here while away on business. Place looked busy as we walked past so thought we'd give it a try. Not disappointed at all with the food. Wonderfully cooked and good value for money. Service was a little curt, seemed a little annoyed we both didn't order sides, nor wanted coffee afterwards.

Ordered the mussels for starters when visiting last Friday lunchtime. Wow large mussels in a tasty tomato and garlic sauce and plenty of them. This restaurant's sea food dishes always seem far tastier then others. Good week day lunchtime menu at present. Sunday lunchtimes it has a lovely vibrant atmosphere.

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times, once for lunch and once for an evening meal. When I was there at lunchtime it was for a business lunch. We sat outside on a lovely sunny day and the high street was very busy with shoppers. I went back one evening on my own and to be honest,... More

We've been here a fair few times and it never disappoints. The quality of the food is great and the portion sizes are always large which makes for great value for money! We try to go out of peak times just as it can get very busy and loud, although the service still never drops below what is acceptable.
