First visit - won’t be the last. £5.95 for a large bowl of spag bol or 12” pizza is very reasonable. Was a Monday lunchtime so not too busy. Staff polite and friendly even though we turned up 15 mins before close. Would recommend.

Proper decent Italian restaurant. I've been a few times with family. My mum's very fussy and she loves this place. The food is fresh and well prepared.

L'Italiana has been recommended numerous time and we finally decided to book a table and it didn't disappoint. Delicious food, great service and a really buzzy place with plenty of people enjoying themselves. Definitely worth a visit... will be returning.

This is our favourite lunchtime restaurant in St Albans - it has that "something" the others seem to lack. It has a certain "bustle" about it - a pleasant atmosphere but not too noisy to prevent having a discussion. At lunchtimes they continue to do...More
