We found ourselves in St Albans around 6pm, and the traffic outbound was chaotic. As a result, we decided to pop into St Villa for dinner.

We found that the menu had excellent variety. We opted for the prawn starter to share, with their signature duck pasta, and the risotto. Both were excellent.

We opted to avoid dessert temptation, but will one day succumb. Service was prompt and friendly.

Not sure we're welcome here? Had to chase twice to get served the twice again for the bill, not that they are busy either place is empty.

Had a beautiful lunch today with my partner.
The environment is quiet and soft.
The weather was superb so we had a choice to seat outside and have lunch.
Very nice terrace to enjoy a few drinks.
One of the best food so far, so simple and tasty.
Worth it for the money we paid.
I will come back soon definitely.
I recommend strongly to go there for any occasion.

Thank you for your kind review and recommendations. We are so pleased you enjoyed your dining experience here with us at St.Villa and we will look forward to welcoming you back again.
It sounds like you were very lucky with the weather, our terrace is a lovely attribute to our restaurant especially with it being south facing, we get the sun all day, shame we don't get it every day - but that's the British weather for you. Hopefully there is more sunshine to come.

The food is very good and the staff very attentive and courteous. The service is very slow which lets them down.
