Booked by phone for 9.00pm next evening explaining celebrating 3 birthdays & asking for good table. Told by 9.00pm most people would have gone & would probably have choice of tables. In reality, place was packed & we were offered an extremely cramped table.
Two of us ordered "House special" pizzas which apparently come with spicy beef. We both commented lack of any spicy content & reported to staff.
Apart from that pizzas were ok.
My wife had a different pizza, but could not finish it, and asked to take the remainder home. All ok until we were leaving when we were told there was a mix up and the pizza had not been saved.
Not impressed & will not return.

We have visited probably one of the oldest established restaurants in Harpenden on numerous occasions. A very small and cosy place with a good atmosphere. The food and drink are also consistently good and competitively priced. It must have traded in Station Road for over 30 years!

I’m not 100% sure why everyone is raving about this place. It was ok but seriously nothing special at all. I wouldn’t bother going back for food I can easily cook at home.

What can be said? Authentic decor, dedicated menu with specials that change once in a blue moon, a staff who have been there for so long and do such a Sterling job for everyone. Limoncello at the end of the night. The crab linguine is brilliant but ataplea like the pizzas and particularly the gnocchi are just perfect. The most welcoming restaurant around and certainly the best Italian in Hertfordshire (of course most people already know this) long may it continue.

Came here with my friend, once before to celebrate my sister's birthday, aswell as many other occassions and no one has ever been at all disappointed. Excellent range of foods + drinks and lovely, thoughtful staff.
I have to say about the quality of the meals and the price as when i went out with my friend we both had a full 3 course meal, however i decided to order another garlic bread instead of dessert as it was delicious and made using freshly made bread (other than dough or a storebought french stick) and gently smothered with cheese and sprinkled with fresh herbs and garlic, and the entire meal only came to a much lower amount than any other restaurant i have been to; also all the floor staff are very helpful and increadibly fast, friendly, chatty and make such a nice experience as if you've met another one of your friends while you were there. Overall a 5* meal and service as the food is all fresh and the staff are great, unfortunately cannot give more than 5, can't wait to go back soon.
