La Fontana

2 Ram Yard, Bedford MK40 1AL, UK – 01234 352577

This is my favourite restaurant in Bedford. The food is amazing and fresh but what really sets them apart is the owners and staff who make you feel so welcome that you feel part of the family. This is the first place I will ever recommend to all of my friends.

Really good food. They offer gluten free pasta, but no gluten free pizza. However, their pasta dishes are amazing! I cant wait to come back and try more. Also had the caprese salad starter and the mozzarella was incredibly flavourful. I highly recommend that. The waitresses were so lovely and attentive. Although desserts did not come in gluten free options, they made sure I had whatever ice cream sundae I wanted. I highly recommend this for their food and wonderful service. We will definitely be back for more!

Three Rooms

4 Kimbolton Rd, Bedford MK40 2NR, UK – 01234 344440

Great place to eat in or have as a takeaway delivered. Lovely restuarant with brilliant service, they dealt with our large table efficiently too. The food is consistently fresh with lots of flavour.

Fantastic food. Well presented. Lovely quiet atmosphere. Thanks for a great meal

Amici Bedford

27 St Peter's St, Bedford MK40 2PN, UK – 01234 340734

We went to Amici for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Amici made it really special. The real Italian staff was friendly and efficient. The food, real Italian food, was simply amazing. Amici is not the place where you eat pizza, plenty of those in Bedford, Amici is where your palate will experience the real Italy. We will recommend Amici to all our friends.

Had our wedding reception at Amici restaurant early May for 35 people. They were so generous with different tastes,vegetarian and child's menu choices. The wait staff couldn't have been more accommodating towards all our guests needs. The meals were beautifully cooked and presented, every guest was very pleased with service and lovely food. We were in an annex to the rear of the restaurant where we had complete privacy.

Blue Ginger

116 Bedford Rd, Kempston, Bedford MK42 8BG, UK – 01234 856800

Very nice and cozy atmosphere. Quirky decor with a bubble wall as you walk in. Small restaurant area, great service, great tasty food. Quick service, and a good menu choice. Visited on a Wednesday night and it was pretty full, so booked a table which was waiting for us when we arrived. Thanks guys! Will be back!

Delicious food- this restaurant has been here 15 years- that’s how you know it’s good! The manager came over and sat with us at the end as we were leaving and we had a wonderful chat, all the people dining there - he said goodbye to and he said everyone eating there had come before. He genuinely cared for his customers. He also does a huge amount of takeaways via JUST EAT. I loved the bubble wall near the door and it’s blue glow is what caught my eye and made me want to go there and the fact that one of my best friends comes here every month or more and recommended it to me. My husband and I will definitely come back. Prices are good too!!

Best Reviewed Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

Spaghetti John's Bedford - Italian Restaurant & Gelateria

15 Castle Ln, Bedford MK40 3NT, UK – 01234 327323

Turned up here after work on a Wednesday. We were quite early for a dinner so expected the place to be empty, but there were a few tables taken, so we weren't totally alone. Service throughout the evening was prompt and pleasant. The food was really tasty, and piping hot. We all went for the set menu, but were a little disappointed that there was a lack of pasta dishes on there, which is a shame as they are known for their fresh homemade pastas. We will definitely be coming back to try those though!

Great, real food, not like the restaurant chains - much much better. Had the 2 course £13.95 lunch menu - my linguine with king prawns was very good and generous. Waiters were all very friendly to. Will go again

The Cappuccino Bar

36 Newnham St, Bedford MK40 3JR, UK – 01234 352991

We went out today searching for ice cream but there were no ice cream vans around, so we went to the Cappuccino Bar. They were really friendly and even gave us the ice cream for free. Let’s just say my son loved his free ice cream. It’s so nice to live near such lovely restaurants.

The perfect place to dine. Staff are extremely friendly and professional. The sheer number of dishes that are high quality is amazing. To all the sweet tooth’s, the tiramisu is mouth watering to indulge on. Highly recommend.

Riobello Italian Restaurant

6 St Mary's St, Bedford MK42 0AS, UK – 01234 364430

Really enjoyed our meal which was freshly cooked and very tasty. The host made us feel very welcome. Packed even on a Tuesday!!

Authentic, quality Italian food, which is what you expect in Bedford! I went for the rigatoni main course and it was very tasty and perfectly filling. Just the right portion size. My friend had the prawn starter. I stole one of the prawns which were served in a nice thick sauce. Utterly delicious! Our party of five had no complaints and left very happy!

The Lane

17 Castle Ln, Bedford MK40 3NX, UK – 01234 325707

Good cocktails, slow service, one bar staff!

Interesting place but constantly booked out so unable to make full use of the building. Drinks ok but very expensive. Front patio is very nice in the summer but in the winter the heated lights are never working. Needs a bit of refurbishment.

Auction Room Bar

1 Duke St, Bedford MK40 3HD, UK – 01234 330902

Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff

I really like gong here on a night out. Always a good vibe. My only real gripe is it can take a while to get served. This is not because of lack of sleep staff, cocktails take far longer to make and the bar doesn't really seem set up for it.

Bar Citrus

29 Harpur St, Bedford MK40 1LA, UK – 01234 273843

Tasty food at affordable prices. I recommend the Hillbilly Chicken. The interior is nice. Good place to have lunch.

A good, simple place, serving hot and cold drinks, alcoholic beverages and good, reasonably priced food.


Bedford Chinese Restaurants

Chef Beijing

52-54 Castle Ln, Bedford MK40 3NU, UK – 01234 273883

Good food but a bit over priced

The Pearl Chinese Takeaway

12 Bunyan Rd, Kempston, Bedford MK42 8HP, UK – 01234 857707

I usually order from elsewhere but as they wasn't open I ordered from The Pearl and I must say I will always order from them now! First off it's great that they do debit card payments and I don't have to pop out to a cash machine like other Chinese takeaways. Delivery took half an hour and food was piping hot and tastes amazing. I loved how I got prawn crackers and fortune cookies where other places are only one or the other. Good customer service and friendly drivers. The Pearl will be my regular from now!

Man Do Chinese Restaurant

155 Midland Rd, Bedford MK40 1DW, UK – 01234 350182

Great food. Very lovely service. Good price.

Man Do is by far our favourite restaurant in Bedford. The service is spectacular, warm atmosphere, excellent food and very clear advice with specialist diets, i.e. I suffer from Coeliac's disease and they cater for me wonderfully. Could not recommend more!

Bedford Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants

Nazar Turkish Restaurant

17 High St, Bedford MK40 1RN, UK – 01234 954147

Well, it’s refreshing to see there are places apart from Italian restaurants in Bedford. Not having eaten any Turkish food before, I was reticent to try the full menu and we popped in for a light lunch. I ordered the Nazar salad and my travelling companion (not Everard, this time), ordered a dish of lamb and Humus. I must say that the young lady who greeted us was kind and professional and that the food (as you will see from the pics) was rather well presented and very tasty. Unfortunately, I cannot give this five stars since I did not enjoy a whole dinner there but my companion told me that the lamb was extremely authentic. I’ve also uploaded a menu so you can see the prices. This place is well worth a visit.

Very warm welcome. 1st time I've been here and was given complimentary starters and delicacies to try. Highly recommended. Food is delicious

The Higgins Pantry

Castle Ln, Bedford MK40 3XD, UK – 01234 276340

Love it here. Great fish. Very chilled. Errico sang and we love him. Fab atmosphere

One of the very few places I would recommend to try authentic italian cuisine. Friendly staff and great atmosphere.

Pizza Hut Restaurants

Aspects Leisure Centre, Newnham Ave, Bedford MK41 9LN, UK – 01234 363314

The food is reasonable, but nothing special. You're far better buying a premium pizza from a supermarket and pretending to eat out at home. You'll save time, money and energy. The only reason you'd go here to eat pizza would be if you didn't have a kitchen or were having your house fumigated. Service is OK.

Great after cinema pizza. Loved unlimited salade bar. Waitress was chirpy and happy

I've been a regular customer in Yates for about 5 years. It is the best pub in town the food is cheap excellent standard and well presented. The staff are always friendly. I shall be sad to see it close.

The Rose

45 High St, Bedford MK40 1RY, UK – 01234 353749

So much nicer now it's been done up! Actually serve really good beers now with a wide variety. Nice smoking area. Small dance floor but good venue for a few drinks

I liked the friendly staff, who were really helpful and king do my special request. The garden is nice for a coffee and brunch on a sunny day. But the garden seems to me like it needs a bit of TLC

The Bear Bedford

92 High St, Bedford MK40 1NN, UK – 01234 630235

5 stars cos I had my first date with my now boyfriend here so can't give it any less! Good selection of beer, nice outside area for smoking and chatting, quiz night... bit of a city centre old skool boozer vibe about it, which I happen to like 🙄

Great pub to meet up with friends good rock nights they have done well to keep it the same as it used to be since it got took over
