Waiting staff very welcoming, attentive and helpful. Food was really good as usual and the place looks very clean, including the toilets. The glass tables aren’t my cup of tea to be honest but that’s just a tiny detail. Will come back!

I hate leaving bad reviews but I'm afraid I wasn't particularly impressed with Spaghetti Johns. I dined with my husband and two kids and it's worth noting that my husband thoroughly enjoyed his pizza and the kids loved their ice cream. I had the carbonara which was like eating a plate of salt. The bacon was just fat and the sauce was thin and runny. The Spaghetti was too firm for my liking and could have done with another few minutes in the pot! The kids food was ok, pizza and pasta but pretty basic and over priced for what it was. Staff were great and the atmosphere in the restaurant was pleasant. Regrettably, won't be going back there.

This was the first time that I have been to Spaghetti John's and I was really impressed. It was very busy being Mother's Day but the service was brilliant, really friendly and welcoming but not over the top. The food was delicious, really generous portions and very well presented. A nice atmosphere and relaxed. We often go to Italian restaurants but the food here and experience was definitely memorable and I have recommended to several people already. Amazing tiramisu and lovely coffee! A very happy Mum on Mother's Day!

The food was delicious. The atmosphere was lively and the staff were attentive but not overly and very friendly. The meal was good value and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I will definitely recommend this establishment to friends and family. I thought it was charming and fun with a modern twist. Helen Carrick

We attended the restaurant with a party of nine for my husband grandmothers birthday. We also had 3 little children with us. The food was enjoyed by everyone and the staff were welcoming. Reasonably priced too. We really enjoyed it - we will be back soon.

Fantastic quality food and service from this Italian restaurant near the Higgins Gallery and the Embankment in Bedford. Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for! In this case, home made pasta and gelato. Recommended.

Had a very good time at Spaghetti John's with excellent service and ambience. They were willing and indeed changed some of the items on the menu to our preference. Even when there was an accident during eating, they offered another main meal free of charge. We ended our meal with some lovely gelato as take away. It is a place to return to
