La Cosa Nostra is a gem of an Italian restaurant. Forget the more obvious venues in central St Albans, this should be your go to Italian. Great atmosphere and service and very reasonably priced.

went on a busy Saturday night, was glad we booked as it was buzzing! Friendly service, Great starters and huge pasta and calzone mains! Not eaten here for years, but just as I remember it, Good value and unpretentious food. Can't understand why anyone would choose one of the many chains in town when this is on their doorstep!

La Casa Nostra is small, a bit cramped and very busy, the atmosphere is great, very friendly and knowledgeable staff, good food and not too expensive. Not a place to linger, they have tables booked farily solidly all night, but a place to return to

Fantastic restaurant on the edge of the City. Feels like you're visiting someone's house. Extremely friendly and professional service. Food really good and wine great value for money. I go back to this place every month and have only ever had great experiences!
