Many thanks indeed for a fabulous evening! The staff at Spaghetti John's catered for our party of 40 at short notice after we were let down by another venue, and they could not have been more helpful or friendly. Our meals were pre-ordered, and on arrival every diner was provided with a named meal card - which made service smooth and quick. The meals were fantastic, all hot, and all thoroughly enjoyed! One guest said that the lasagne was the best that he'd ever had. And the ice-cream... WOW! Thanks, Spaghetti John's - definitely recommended.

We booked a table for 8 (family inc children) for our son’s 9th birthday. The three children were kept occupied with colouring and very friendly staff. The food was out of this world! This was our first visit and we will certainly visit again and recommend to friends and family. One of the most authentic Italian restaurants we have been to locally, yet with an open, modern dining space. Clean facilities and scrumptious food choices. Thank you.

Bedford is blessed with having a lot of Italian Restaurants, therefore competition for trade is fierce amongst them, which is great for the customer's. Spaghetti John's is in my opinion one of the best around. It appears to be hugely under rated for some reason, and I don't mind that as it means I can usually get a table when I want one! Food, drink and service are always excellent.

We were slightly unsure about where to go out and thought of lots of different places. After a lot of discussion we realised that, despite having been to SJs quite recently, it was the one place that could guarantee to provide us with the intimate evening we were looking for. It did not disappoint!

Great service, very friendly, lovely food. Bent over backwards to accommodate my 6 year old coeliac daughter. Gluten free pasta, burgers and ice cream with cone. One happy child! We come here regularly and the food is always tip top.

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
