Shabby just like the cafes in Rome, looks terrible in fact BUT.... It has to be the best Italian in Bedford. The pizzas are to die for, the service is incredible and the price, well with the money you save against some of the other Italian restaurants in Bedford you could book a flight to Italy! Great lunch, great dinner,... More

There are a lot of Italian restaurants in Bedford due to the high Italian population but this is our favourite. The back half of the restaurant is quirky with vines hanging from the ceiling and indoor fairy lights but it adds a Mediterranean feel to the place. The food is excellent and the service attentive.

The restaurant is set in a very nice environment. We had pizzas and calzone. It looked like eating in Italy. Very fresh and tasty ingredients. The staff was friendly, though one of the girls seamed a bit on a hurry. Great place to visit.

Good value food and plenty of it. We had already paid the deposit which was 'lost' when our final bill came. It was sorted quickly. Good value for money and food was lovely.

We had a really super lunch here with our Italian friend who really enjoyed the food and ambience. Everything was traditionally cooked and with excellent ingredients. The pizzas are amazing. A really nice atmosphere. A slice of Italy in Bedford. We travelled to come - well worth the trip and we'll be back regularly I hope.
