Seen good reviews sat outside in sun. Shared a lovely pizza and pasta very good value. Nice service. Not that comfortable outside needs more cushion. But a nice independent Italian for a quick meal.

I love their pizza with spinach and egg. I can't eat pizza anywhere else except for here now. Nowhere measures up. The host is a bit of a large personality but that could be charming for some. But Yeah it's good restaurant.

Booked this as it was close to where we were staying for our anniversary, it had been raining all day so were hoping the evening would be better. Didnt need to worry, the whole experience of La Cosa Nostra was excellent! The staff are very welcoming, the atmosphere was warm and friendly. The venue is small for a restaurant and... More

OMG. Tony and the team pulled off the most amazing party for my gorgeous wife's 50th birthday. We had the private room and we're totally looked after. The usual amazing food. Brilliant service. We just love those guys. Visit. You won't be disappointed.

The decor is nothing much to write home about but that is part of its charm. The food was superb. The Veal Milanese served with Spaghetti Bolognese was excellent. Will definitely return.

One big happy family, seems like everyone here is a regular in this tucked away restaurant on Lattimore Rd. Great place! Many people I know in St Albans have never heard of La Cosa Nostra. It is already packed every night so let's keep it a secret or there will be queues. Quality of food is high and prices reasonable.... More

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.

My husband ordered Pollo Valdostano which was Chicken breast topped with mozzarella & ham in a rich tomato sauce with vegetable accompaniments including saute potatoes which were moreish . My...
