Great food, proper homemade Italian family food at excellent prices. Lovely setting by the lake, feels more like on holiday than in welwyn. Wine list was ok, nice Pinot Grigio, reasonably priced. Shame the waiters were so rude! I recommend the staff team take a trip to Verdi's in St Albans for a lesson in how to serve fabulous Italian... More

Always excellent, never been disappointed and have visited many times as a couple, & with friends & family. Locally difficult to equal or beat. Italian restraunt that Italians use, what better recommendation can you have.

Came for a family meal, amazing steaks. My wife had Spaghetti Napoli, Very friendly atmosphere and superb service. Hidden away next to the lakes, lovely to look out at the water. Ask for a table near the window. Will definatley coming back.

We were a party of four and pre-booked a table for dinner @ 20.00hours. Our table was ready on arrival but one of our party was a bit chilly sitting next to a window and the manager moved us to another table without any problem, even though the place was buzzing with most tables taken. The menu offers a wide... More

Looking at past reviews gives a clear indication of love/hate. My take on it is that the food is excellent (6 of us and we all had something different), service is attentive, ambience is good and there is ample parking. All very positive. This is not a 5 because I tend to agree that the prices are on the high... More

The food was good but I object to paying separately for vegetables which made the cost too high. Feel we could have got equally good food elsewhere for a more reasonable price.

I really love this place, great choice of wine and food and friendly service. Enzo the owner is on hand and very pleasant as well. Tables are well laid out and the view of the lake is outstanding

We went to celebrate my wife's birthday, on the recommendation of one of my sons, who had visited the restaurant on numerous occasions, and we were not disappointed. Great service, good menu, with an excellent range of chices, good wine list, and food was good to yop it all off.

Went here Thursday evening as we had a meal voucher, last time I ate here was about 15 years ago. Lots to choose from on the menu. Shared a calamari to start - perfectly cooked and very tasty. Swordfish for main would have been good if it wasn't drowned in "Sicilian dressing" - which was just balsamic vinegar, olive oil... More
