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

Went for the lunchtime deal my companion chose a seafood pasta cooked with white wine and served in a foil swan. I recommend it. A traditional Italian restaurant that obviously has a love for the ingredients
