Feels like Italy the minute you walk in the door. The menu is much like any you would experience in Sorrento and the art is work is Amalfi coastline. Great value for money and top quality food. Service is quick, efficient and friendly. Book two to three weeks in advance. Located in the heart of St Albans.

Cosy Italian in city centre Clean good ambience Service very friendly and good, staff and chef were helpful regarding allergies Food was lovely, we had two starters and one pizza. Everything was very well cooked only one issue - the lettuce leaves didn't appear to have been washed and tasted gritty We'll happily come back though.

Fantastic restaurant with fantastic menu! I had a freshly made tuna pizza, absolutely delicious! The restaurant has a relaxing environment, with very friendly staff. When in St Albans......it's a must! (book a table as it's so popular!)
