Visited with some work colleague's. Nice friendly atmosphere and good selection of beers and other drinks. ...also good selection of food incl pasta and pizzas, with a unique 50% pizza and 50% calzone (best of both worlds). The lemon cello is LUSH.

Great food, busy and quick service....great if you need to eat before the theatre. Portions are generous. It's busy but you are made to feel like you are the only person in the restaurant....nothing is too much trouble.

Went to dinner with a few friends, very thankful I ordered pizza which was very good. Friends food was less than average. If you just want something to fill your belly before you go to the pub, this will do! Waiter was rude and it was so loud in there, everyone ends up shouting!

The pizzas are pastas are delicious but you have got to try the chicken Kiev. Absolutely wonderful. This is a Watford staple. You will not leave hungry.

Used to be one of the best Italian restaurants in Watford but it has really gone off the boil. Steak used to be fabulous but the cuts aren't good anymore. The staff seem to be more worried about catering for the local police who frequently come in to get their pizza which was noticed by my husband who is s... More

A group of 15 on a Friday night out to say goodbye to a great friend / colleague. We all arrived after a few drinks in local pub. Service was friendly and quick, drinks offered and delivered promptly. Big downside was the table layout, just 1 long narrow table, so really unsociable, never a good choice. Shared starters were really... More

Good, friendly, honest food. No airs and graces but lovely food. Bit noisy. Not for romantic couples.
