Would definitely return if I go back to Watford...always a guess booking a table somewhere where you don't live, but this risk definitely paid off!

From Starters to House Red was Amazing. It's a long time since I've had Starter Main and Dessert. What a welcome Staff were all so Friendly on arriving and leaving. We all enjoyed our meals first time in ages everything was delivered with no mistakes and piping hot. We couldn't fault it. Next time someone can take me just so... More

I do love this resturant, the staff are friendly. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is nice. Defo recommend the lamb chops, steak, pasta and calazoni pizza also the steamed chicken breast with ham and cheese in a light tomato sauce. Only draw back is they don't do kids size meals, however when I take my niece there we... More

Had bruschetta yum yum - the one with peppers on it. The tomato one was a bit bland. Meat balls were good. My dad had carbonra and said it was nice. House red not the best but passed, just. Recommend it. Pet hate - service added to the bill. Staff friendly. Food good. Good value.

We went here following a trip to the theatre and had not booked. We were later than we thought we would be and were surprised and pleased that they were able to accommodate us on a Saturday evening that was also valentines day! We were served reasonably quickly despite the restaurant being busy and the food was tasty. Presentation was... More

Great for large events offering huge pizzas that will certainly fill a hungry tummy. I wouldn't recommend going for a romantic meal as it is very child and family friendly including large groups, so can get rather noisy.

I visited here for a late lunch on a weekday. We were served in good time and the menu is decent although uninspired. There was nothing out of the ordinary. The staff were friendly but they do not listen - the waiter took my drink order and when I asked for a coke, made the assumption it was diet so... More

We have been visiting L'Artista for many years and it is always fab. We now live almost an hour away but travel back for dinner whenever we can as there is nowhere like L'Artista anywhere else. A party of 4, we didn't book and arrived early evening so getting a table was not an issue. The staff have seen us... More

I hadn't visited for a few years having moved from the area 5 years ago, last visit was with about 8 friends and was really good. This time I went with my daughter who I was visiting before Christmas. It was very lively which was probably due to Christmas office parties! The food was as good as I remember with... More
