Great genuine Italian food

Great friendly service and authentic Italian food served by Italians. Fresh ingredients and ample portions. lovely cosy atmosphere and right in the centre of town. I would recommend this place to anyone.

A small place that is charmingly decorated however, as we were visiting at a busy time it was very cramped and the lack of space between the tables was such that we may as well have been seated at the same table as our neighbouring diners. The food was good but for me, nothing made it stand out above other... More

Very small/quaint, classic Italian set-up, GREAT food, wonderful nice Italian folks with reasonable prices. I have stayed in London and taken the train out to this restaurant because it is that good. Get reservations in advance.

The place is always busy, it's also rather crampt. That said, this just adds to the atmosphere. It's a really special place, the food is amazing and I just love the guys that run it.

Fantastic Italian food, great service, great atmosphere and excellent value. We had somehow taken a while to visit this (Harpenden has many Italian places), but we are making up for lost time with regular visits! Just an all around excellent example of an Italian restaurant.

Had a nice meal here although the salmon pasta was a bit too salty, but I have been reducing my intake of salt. When it came to desserts however, I was so disappointed as it was so frozen and no natural ingredients. I would have loved some Italian ice cream or more home cooked type desserts...it let the meal down.... More

I arranged my retirement lunch here. We were a party of 10 booked in for 12.30 coming from all over the country. Sadly both rail and road transport was awful that day so many of the people coming were late. But we were looked after so nicely, despite the fact that it got really busy and they close at 2:30....

Went here for a birthday celebration and had a great night out in this charming, no frills Italian. service was swift, professional and engaging. The ambience and decor take you back to Italian restaurants of days gone by, so it's nice option to other clean cut alternatives. Although seating is on the snug side it adds to the atmosphere in...
