All that you see when walking along High Street is an unpretentious door between the bigger Cote and Waterers the tailors. Venture down the corridor and you will find a modern Italian restaurant in an "Orangery" setting. The service was excellent and the food very tasty. I found it a little noisy(but the Christmas Hen Party might have caused this)

This restaurant is right in the middle of town and is hidden away. When you walk through the entrance and along the corridor you come to a lovely greenhouse style room. Very atmospheric. Lovely food, slightly on the pricey side. Great for group bookings, book in advance- even for couples!!!

What a really nice place and so busy on a Tuesday evening. Lamb Ragu was really tasty and meat so tender. Hubbie had a really nice carbonara along with marguerita pizza to share. Turns out Tuesday is the night to go - £22 each buys you shared anti pasta starter and pasta or pizza main course and unlimited wine !... More

Small chain of Italian restaurants, mostly in Herts. Good at what they do. This one has a slightly more elegant classical décor than the Berkhamsted branch, though to be honest it's the latter we marginally prefer - bit more of a joyous fun atmosphere. Prices if going à la carte do rack up the bill quite quickly, but the quality... More

We had the Christmas menu which proved good value. I chose prosciutto on toasted bread with salad and mozzarella which was pleasant enough though somewhat dry. This was followed by a veal wrapped in prosciutto (silly really) with a butter and lemon sauce, oven potatoes and fresh brocoli sprouts. This was delicious though the meat was overcooked. As for the... More

Just had a great meal at Zaza - in a large party and we had the set Christmas party meal which was very good and efficiently served. Excellent choices and all beautifully cooked.

Decent food and service and a fun night was had. Not anything beyond good but value for money. Staff could have been a little more involved with us, lights could have been a little less bright. Would go again but only in turn if that makes sense. There are too many good restaurants around now

We visited Zaza in St Albans on the recommendation of a friend who had been to the one in Harpenden. Unfortunately, our experience of the restaurant was terrible. We found the food to be bland and well below average but the thing that made the whole experience worse for us was the poor service! It was the worst service that... More
