I had dinner with my wife at Graffiti tonight. I know that the restaurant has been in Harpenden for some time and I think that it is family run. So I guess that for most people they must be doing something right. And in general the reviews on Tripadvisor are good. The service couldn't have been better albeit there was... More

We luckily parked in Station Road so missed most of the rain & were warmly welcomed into the restaurant. With a bottle of red ordered & 2 Peronis we made our selection, 2 Squid rings, a Prawn Cocktail & a Whitebait, to follow 2 Scaloppine Milanese, Seafood Risotto & Pollo Cacciatore. The whitebait crisp hot & crisp, the prawns large... More

We returned to Graffiti after a lapse of several years, and found the new décor very pleasant (shame the fish tank has gone). The food and the service were very good, and our expectations were not disappointed. However, our dining experience was marred by the so called "background music". It is difficult to enjoy a relaxing meal to a rhythmic... More

I recently visited after being recommended this place. We were a party of 5, accompanied with young children. I would highly recommend anyone looking for an amazing authentic Italian meal, to visit Graffiti. The owner and his wife could not be more accommodating. The food was delicious, I would recommend the agnolotti con funghi and the Scallopine Milanese followed by... More

Although we live in St Albans we've been returning regularly to Graffiti for years - most recently last Thursday - as we love authentic Italian food and are never disappointed here. The owners cook and serve with a smile and set themselves high standards which we really appreciate. Prices are reasonable for what you get with special offers available if... More

After many years of living in Harpenden we only discovered Graffiti last year and were upset we had missed it for so long. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food tasted home cooked and delicious.

I recently enjoyed a lovely meal here with my husband and was impressed from the moment we arrived. We were greeted by a very friendly waitress who looked after us well throughout the evening. We found the menu to have lots of choice and were very happy with the meals we decided on. We had the mozzarella fritta and antipasto... More
