“After 19 years, this high street modern European, presided over by the ever-smiling proprietor Alfonso, continues to provide an outpost of quality food in the underserved north London/Herts borders”; happily, the “vibrant” food still comes at “sound prices” too.
A “sustained and noticeable improvement” continues to be noted at this high street stalwart, presided over by “the affable Alonso”; “a longstanding fixture in the culinary desert that is the N London/Herts borderlands”, nowadays it’s “a proper restaurant” offering “especially good fish dishes” – and “the fact that the place is packed nightly is testament to its success”.
The “ever-cheerful Italian owner” of this “stalwart of reliability” has “upped the game considerably” in recent times, “whilst still keeping things good value and informal”; it remains “noisy not cosy”, but these days “the telling thing is how even mid-week the place is packed”.
“In the culinary desert that is the Herts borderlands”, this “longstanding stalwart” is the “best restaurant for miles around”; indeed, fans say that the cooking has undergone a “sustained and noticeable” improvement of late, as witnessed by “the fact that it’s packed nightly”.
