“Food was lovely but the restaurant definitely needs a make over.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

We used out taste card and go 2 4 1 which always makes it good value for money. The service was good, food was lovely. However what really let it down was the atmosphere the restaurant was fairly empty just 2 other tables. The decor needs a make over. The walls are tired with polyfiller marks.

“not really worth it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

food was bland and over priced, had the calzone and when i cut into it out oozed quite a lot of liquid... we had to wait quite a while between courses even though the place is tiny...worst of all the smell of toilets you get half way down the stairs to the toilets it it gross and very off putting!

“Maitre D' created a Fun Evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

It was a rare evening out on Friday night without out Son...
We had already had 2-4-1 Cocktails at the Snug.
We have eaten here before but the service tonight by Fabrizio made the evening exceptional.
He is attentive and offers excellent alternative side dishes and Dolcetti.
Definitely worth a revisit as the menu has changed and there are lots of interesting dishes.

“what a welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Situated in the town just round the corner from St Albans Abbey and a short walking distance from the park my daughter and I and the two grandsons headed for our lunch at Pizza Express.
The welcome was great. The manager teased the boys making them laugh and we were given the choice of tables.
The service was excellent and so too was the food. The boys had great value with the 3 course childrens meal and nothing was left on anyones plate.!
Lovely enviroment , lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff.
Shall return again .
