Very good meal

Haven't been for a while, sick of chain pizza places, tried here again after a few years gap. Prices have gone up, but quality has too. Had a very nice starter salad, lettuce, avocado, prawns, tuna, olives, really good. We all had pizzas for mains, all got eaten, all nice.Will go again.

We've been to L'Artista a couple of times, and even partaken of there delivery service too. The food is authentically Italian and very well made and presented. The staff are friendly and related well to my young son, prices are reasonable too.

But I had nothing to worry about the service was superb and the food was great, we had a party of 20 and everyone's food came together and... More

Most of the staff were friendly despite the place being extremely busy. I and another of my group had the bruschetta as a starter. The crusts of both were so tough they were nearly impossible to cut with a knife, they were not over grilled but appear to have been either stale or microwaved. The main course of pizza was... More

I went here last night with 8 friends. The staff were fab, they were very attentive, we did not have to repeat what we were drinking as they always remembered from the first round and came over straight away as soon as we needed anything. Every single person was happy with their starter and main dish, and you certainly could... More

The restaurant has been around for a while and the service has always been friendly. The food has been first class and the last time we went there I had the lunch menu....not that I'm tight or anything, It was purely for the experience of trying the lunch time menu instead of the main (more expensive) meals. Two courses for... More

It's lively as you would experience in proper Italian restaurants. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! Couldn't fault them in any way! Keep going... More

Whilst looking for somewhere to eat we came across L'artista on Watford High street they looked busy to thought we would give them a try, so glad we did the food was delicious. Freshly made pizza cooked for all to see. pasta to saver, friendly staff, and large portions which is not the norm in Italian restaurants. Throughly recommend

The food is always great, but I just find there are too many tables crammed into the restaurant. It's a shame as whenever I go there I cannot wait to leave!
