We were staying just overnight in Bedford and this restaurant was a great find. it is in a side street so parking was not too difficult whereas Bedford town centre is a nightmare for parking. Excellent varied menu; courteous and caring waiters. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

Loved the atmosphere. Very busy and popular but that added to the atmosphere. Choice of food was great and the actual food was amazing. They were very accommodating for any special needs. The waiting staff were very attentive and efficient. Can't wait to go back!

Got in just after opening and they made us very welcome. Sat at the front which was ideal as there was a large party towards the back of the restaurant who were all having a good time and quiet loud. We had a main course and dessert which was piping hot and very tasty. A bottle of wine to accompany... More

Although it is tucked away from the town centre it is well worth a visit either for lunch or dinner. It is advisable to book as it is usually crowded due to the great meal deals they do both for lunch and dinner. There is a wide choice of pasta dishes as well as plenty of other choices. A starter...
