“Great local italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Always a reliable restaurant for typical Italian food. Service is always friendly and prices good. Typical Italian family restaurant - kids always welcome and not necessarily kept silent but that's the Italian way.

“Buzzing!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

This restaurant is buzzing! Really fun place to eat, particularly if it's your birthday....maybe not the place for a romantic evening! The food is good but not fantastic, rustic rather than nouvelle. I made a bad choice, and really should have sent it back, It was baby chicken, with wine and rosemary sauce. But the baby chicken, was more like a chick!! Not a lot of meat on it, and very tough....ah we'll next time. I will go again, but not for a while.

“Why all the negative feedback? Amazing food, great people, YOU MUST GO!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

I was first introduced to this restaurant back in 2007 by my Uncle - and I haven't looked back since! Personal favourite is the veal escallop in breadcrumbs - I have this every time I visit! Great for birthdays as they put on a great show in celebration. The staff are friendly and always remember your names if you're a returning customer. Great one to bring your kids too because its already a lively restaurant and the kids can get involved in pizza making. True, authentic italian food and with a fantastic service to match - one of the best restaurants in Hertfordshire. My 20-mile round trip to L'Artista every month or so can't be wrong!
