I've been to this restaurant a number of times and it has always delivered. The food is amazing and so cheap at 2 courses for £10!! The decor isn't Gok Won but if you're looking for decent food then you should dine here. WARNING- it get's very busy, so make sure you book a table and you won't be disappointed!

I have had a meal on 4 occasions at The Cappucino Bar and each occasion has been a real pleasure. The atmosphere and ambience of the restaurant are second to none, the menu is comprehensive, the food is superbly presented and full of flavour, with a good selection of wine, lagers, beer (old speckled hen is a welcome addition) and...

We go to the Cappuccino Bar in Bedford regularly as it represents excellent value for money with a great choice of dishes. Everything is freshly cooked and the staff are super. It's popular with all ages and so you usually have to book a table. It's great for meeting up with friends for lunch, very buzzy but never boring.

A large group of us were celebrating a friend's special birthday at this lovely little restaurant. I have been there before for lunch but not for an evening meal. It was very busy and we had to ask for an extension to our table as three people had been placed where there should only have been two and were very... More

I've been here only twice, the first time being about 5 years ago. It was very nice then, didn't greatly enjoy my pizza, but purely because it was too spicy for me, still had a great starter. I returned a month ago with friends and ordered a calamari for starter, which was delicious. Again, I made a bad choice of... More

An unpretrentious restaurant, small and homely in feel. It's very popular with those who have discovered it, the portions being generous and offering excellent value for money. While the menu is long for a place of this size the food seems to be assembled to order, tasting fresh and with good service even for a party of a dozen (about... More

I will be returning with my boyfriend, if I can get a table they are always fully booked! I need to ring earlier to get a table! It's a shame it... More

First time I was celebrating my birthday in my home town in 30 years & was looking for Italian, somewhere nice & relaxed. Asked around & Cappuccino was recommended. We looked online, liked the menu & made a reservation - it was for a Saturday evening & were pleased we did so: the place was very full, with a large... More

If food, then yes, it was a lovely place for five friends to sit and reminisce about life and adventure. Service was prompt, appropriate. The flavours were well blended and the portions felt like they were coming from mum's kitchen! Most generous. Not difficult on the wallet at all! If decor, then walk on by, it felt crowded and claustrophobic.

Alex and his team do a great job. Accommodating you the best they can. The place is always busy. The chef is willing to adapt things for you. I absolutely love the place. a good little find just tucked away a little way off the high street.
