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.

I decided to visit this restaurant for lunch 1 day. I must say I thought the service was very good and the food of amazingly good quality and reasonably priced. What put me off slightly was the main worker (who may or may not have been the manager) was talking to other employees in what looked like a really disrespectful... More

I was at L'artista on July 4th and had a very good experience. Food was great and service was excellent. I was served by a lovely waitress named Lucia and she really made me feel at home. I suggest this restaurant to all the people that are in the Watford area.

Recently I visited this restaurant L'artista because one my friend was saying they have nice food in there. The food was fine but everything else was quite annoying - it was very noisy, manager there doesn't look smart enough for a restaurant and he was shouting on staff in customers presence, and was quite arrogant, not professional and not friendly...
