My wife and I had an impromptu dinner here two nights ago, as we occasionally 'try out' new places. The food was good, but not exceptional. The service (by two elderly Italian gents) was friendly and I have no complaints there. The restaurant itself it quaint, well decorated, neat and quite spacious, but I'm not sure we would eat there... More

Another visit to this great little Italian restaurant in Hemel old town. No over inflated Valentines menu prices or set times sittings here, just good food and wine, with friendly service and great atmosphere. Well worth a visit if you like independent one off restaurants. We will be back.

This restaurant is quite charming, but could do with a bit of a revamp as the decor is tired in places, even if it was just a lick of paint and sticking down the wallpaper. This restaurant was fairly empty for a Saturday prior to Valentines. Every time we eat here I always have to ask for a wine list.... More

Went out looking for an Italian Restaurant and our usual haunts were all busy so we drove to the Old Town and came across Alberto's True Italian menu and great home cooking. Quirky hand written 'specials menu' added a special memory Great food, great staff and reasonably priced £50 for 2 including a bottle of wine Highly recommend

First dined here about 8 years ago and have been fairly regularly ever since. The food is delicious and freshly cooked. The service is helpful, friendly and very efficient. It really is a special place and, to our minds, serves some of the best food in Hemel Hempstead.

The mussels with creamy garlic sauce was the best we've had in a long time as was the duck pate We had a delicious pheasant in red wine with sauté potatoes and vegetables All finished off with tiramisu and raspberry pavlova Would come again

We arrived expecting the restaurant to be full in the run up to Christmas, but found that the Old Town area was amazingly quiet and most of the restaurants were equally quiet, which really suited us as we had hoped for a nice peaceful evening to eat and catch up with friends before the busy few days ahead. As always,... More
