Lovely food and good value

Went for a birthday meal with friends and it was lovely. The food is really good and there's plenty of it too, for the price you can't beat it. The staff were friendly and helpful would definitely recommend

We have been here a few time's they are always pleased to met you, where else can you go and get great food and a glass of wine for that price.

We had a lovely lunch here on a very busy Saturday. The food was very good (recommend the mushroom risotto)! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was that we had to go to the bar to get our napkins and cutlery. This may have just reflected the busyness of the restaurant, so don't let that put you off!...

Great food, great staff, good value. Very popular so book ahead! Looks like a cafe from the outside but great Italian style inside. A hidden gem.

A busy restaurant which offers good food on a budget. Plenty to choose from and reasonably priced. High chair provided didn't have safety straps to keep my lovely one year old restrained! Will be bringing our own travel highchair next time we visit.

Best Italian in Bedford by far (and I work in an American/Italian restaurant) service is always fast and friendly and the food is without fail always top notch!! Great value for money too... Have recommended before and will continue to do so!! 10/10

My wife was introduced to this Ristorante Italiano last week by a colleague from one of the schools in which they were both teachers, along with 2 other ladies, all ex school teachers, I had graciously demurred my invitation to join them 4 v 1.not good odds for intellectual survival! It is advisable to ring them ahead of your visit,... More

It's worth going back every time, the food is fresh and well cooked! Truly Italian in spices and flavour! Sizes of dishes are great for family feasts and all to share. We return every time although service is something they could slightly improve!

Have visited here many times and have never been disappointed. Freshly cooked food with large portions. Great value for money. Staff very friendly . My only critism is that there is only one toilet and often there is queue ! Otherwise this place is perfect.
