My husband and I went to this restaurant after a recommendation from a customer at work and I am so glad we tried it! The food was delicious, authentic and full of flavour, we enjoyed a full 3 courses all of which were well seasoned and the portion sizes were just right. The restaurant it self was small but romantic... More

From the outside this place doesn't look like much but as we went in and downstairs we were pleasantly surprised. The interior is small but comfortable and the service is fast without being unfriendly. Good food as well, large range of pastas and some grills but no pizza, I don't think. Good spot for a quiet or romantic dinner.

The outside is deceptive - a cracked door on the high street leading onto cellar stairs - but the comfortable, clean and charming little restaurant at the bottom is well worth discovering. I've been to Eatalia for lunch a year or two ago and again last night for dinner with friends, and the food has been consistently excellent - hot,... More

Doesn't look like much when you walk down the High St in Bedford as you have to go downstairs into a cellar, but...amazing Saturday night meal, well priced, fresh food and with only 2 waiters we weren't kept waiting long at all - excellent service..recommend and will definitely go back. Bit of a Bedford secret!

We have visited this resturant on numerous occasions, the food is always excellent, the service is always excellent. This really is an ideal place to dine on any occasion, we have always been made to feel special and valued customers and no special requests have ever been too much trouble. This will always be a favourite eatery for us.

Took a friend for Lunch and was very disappointed with it. We were given a table that was in a very cold draughty position. The Bread in the Bruchetta was really stale, my friend could not cut it at all. Very limited selection of soft drinks. Overall not the pleasant Lunch that we expected.

Visited recently for a birthday meal. Never been to the place before. The setting was lovely, for a moment you actually feel like you are in Italy. The complimentary bread was lovely, my pasta dish was very tasty and the portion sizes are very generous. I cannot give 5star as they did not have my favourite lasagna, or strawberry cheesecake...
