Went here for a Christmas get together with friends on a Friday evening. The food was fine. The service was very poor. It was quite full and generally noisy. I don't think the acoustics in the room help with that. However the table behind us was ridiculously noisy. There was a very inebriated man who persisted to shout at the... More

I've been here several times and the food is always great. Friendly service too. Make sure you book as it's always busy!

Service was swift and friendly! Starters: These were so nice that they didn't have the chance to he pictured! Bruschetta funghi and dough balls Mains: Fettuccine salmone and piccante pizza. Both were fresh, flavoursome and devoured in an instant! Dessert: Salted caramel cheesecake. We've been here twice before and highly recommended it. It can get a little loud at times... More

Excellent restaurant with very friendly, capable staff. We went with a group of five & everyone had a superb meal at reasonable prices. We will definitely be going back.

Overall, fairly satisfied with the good experience had by all, food was tasty and a change from the many Italian restaurants in Bedford. The service was mostly efficient and we were made to feel welcome. Parking is a bit of an issue... especially if it's raining (we used Waitrose). One of the kitchen/bar staff seemed to be just sitting there... More

We came here for my son's 12th birthday. We ordered our aperitifs and waiting 25 minutes. We asked several times for our drinks. The starter was served before any drinks arrived. Then the wine to go with the main course arrived, but still not the drinks we ordered. Eventually they arrived and the wine to go with the main course... More

Fratelli Ampthill is amazing! Such good food, a great choice and truly Italian. The lasagne is gorgeous and to be honest so is the chocolate cake. Very good value too. An average 3 course is £20 each. I would highly recommend and will definitely be returning. The service is okay but nothing to rave about. Some of the staff aren't... More

The food is delicious, I had linguine with clams and mussels and a panacotta for desert. Good wine list too. Atmosphere here is just right. All in all superb experience and very reasonably priced. A well... More

We recently ate at Fratelli's for a late lunch and were greeted with delicious food and very generous portions. If you're gong to eat a Fratelli's you really can't go wrong with one of their pasta dishes, which are not only exceptionally flavourful, but also not overly rich, as is oft the case for Italian restaurants. Service is quick and... More
