“Intimate restaurant with great food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Having found the address, we went downstairs into an atmospheric cellar, cosily decked out to give a rustic, Italian atmosphere.
The waitress was delightful, smiley & helpful guiding us through the menu.
My mussels with garlic & white wine had a real kick in the sauce - possibly chili, which made a lovely starter with garlic bread.
The main course of tuscany sausage with beans in a thick, tomato - based broth was a delight & reminded me of similar cassoulets we've had in France. Delicious & very filling.
We had a nice bottle of house red to accompany our meal & were totally satisfied with our experience.
We will visit again.

“Simple Italian food and great wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

A friendly restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. The food is simple but good and represented good value for money. The wine list was impressive for this size of restaurant and good recommendations made by staff. We will be back.

“Really good food, really good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

Tucked away in a cellar off the high street, this place is a gem. The waitress was lovely: courteous and polite, attentive but not obtrusive. The food was really good portion size (i was already pretty full after the bread, olives and substantial starter!), great flavour and cooked beautifully. The menu was quite a simple one, but good variety, with an authenticity about it. We had 2 courses, plus coffee, plus wine for £40, so a really reasonable evening out. Bedford seems rather overwhelmed with cheesy-titled restaurants, but leaving that aside, its a great place. Track it down and try it out!

“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

Simple Italian food at good prices. The owner is very engaging and happy to amend dishes to suit tastes. Only negative is its in a basement and easy to miss:
