We eat here regularly. The staff are welcoming and always happy to see you. The food is excellent and service just as good. The menu is two courses for £10.95. The portions are full size, not smaller versions as in a lot of these deals. The choice is full and varied and a litre carafe of... read more

Being a bit naughty we always seem to want to go here at the last minute but they are very accommodating and normally fit us in somewhere. This is a very popular restaurant which is not surprising as the food is always very good and at very reasonable prices too.

Arrived early evening on a Monday without booking, given a table without fuss. Place looks a little shabby from the outside but when you enter its clean and spacious and goes back a long way. Family run, very pleasant staff who explained the set meal deal on offer. Typical authentic Italian menu, obviously home cooked, very reasonable prices. Got very... More

Been several times for a quick bite to eat, family celebration and catch up with friends. The staff are friendly and efficient. The choice of food is varied and tasteful - something for everyone!! Best of all the bill is always better than I imagine. Would expect to pay a lot more if this was a major high street outlet.... More

Crowded and busy but with bags of atmosphere. The service was excellent and the food really superb. I enjoyed it and would love to go back.

I'm disappointed to leave a somewhat negative review to The Cappuccino Bar, considering past experiences have been extremely positive and I am a regular visitor! But I visited with my grandmother today for a bite to eat at lunch time and received unsatisfactory service from rude staff. Most of the tables were reserved (fair enough) and we sat on a... More

My favourite restaurant in Bedford. Visited 5 times in the last 5 weeks and each time the food has been fabulous and the service very good even when busy.

We have been here lots of times and although it just looks ordinary from the outside, inside is a completely different story, it has great atmosphere and the food is amazing and all freshly prepared and the staff are so friendly and attentive.

The menu choice is quite extensive and the prices are reasonable. We ordered and our starters which duly arrived being both... More
