Just a couple of minor observations- it would be nice if the plates could be warmer even hotter, for the main courses. Also it does tend to get a tad noisy at times making conversation difficult; some sound deadening might not go amiss.

It is a lovely restaurant however it was extremely loud in there and that ruined the atmosphere a little bit for us. We felt it ruined a romantic evening out as we had to shout at each other to even hear above the volume in there. I understand this isn't the restaurants fault but felt like due to the number of large bookings there was in it felt like it wasn't the right place for couples bookings to have a nice meal out. The food was outstanding as was the service. This was the only thing that let it down that night for us.

Had a lovely evening, table of eight celebrating a birthday. Had to wait on arrival as table wasn’t ready, but apart from that, had a great night. Sophia Soul was singing which gave it a party atmosphere...we even got to dance.. good fun evening, with good food, service and helpful, friendly staff. Will definitely visit again.

Food was absolutely stunning, we could all taste the freshness of the food and all of the staff made us feel welcome. Would definitely recommend a visit. I do think that the Rigatoni Carbonara could be served as a slightly bigger portion though. Thank you

At last a decent Italian restaurant in Bedford. The food was lovely and freshly prepared. It's a pity its not open in the evenings more often. Well worth a visit.
