“Delightful restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

We went here as a party of eleven including four children aged between three and seven, to celebrate my Son's 40th birthday, we we're given a table decorated and surrounded with birthday. Banners, I was very impressed. The food was delicious and piping hot, served by two very charming and friendly young ladies who treated the children as customers too. We have been there before and I'm sure we will go again, it comes highly recommended by everyone in our party

“Wonderful and different”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

We had a great evening at Eatalia. The staff were friendly and the owner was funny and charismatic. The food was excellent and they offer lots of unusual dishes (for a Bedford Italian).

We cannot wait to go again.

“Small is beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is small - tucked away in a High Street basement, and all the cosier and more atmospheric for it.

The menu is also small. The Tuscan chef concentrates on a handful of dishes and does them all expertly. The choices are authentic and unique - certainly I'd never heard of half of them, but I was blown away by what I was served.

Pasta was perfectly al dente. The steak was cooked exactly as ordered, and was melt-in-the-mouth tender. I was also given a side order of a delicious vegetable stew. I wish I could remember what it was called, but it consisted of cannellini beans, carrots and onions cooked with Italian herbs. Don't miss this - is far more special than it sounds.

Best Italian food i've eaten anywhere in the UK for a very long time.

“Lovely restaurant and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

What a lovely, traditional, Tuscan Italian restaurant. Great service, nothing was too much trouble and the food was excellent.

Small menu, but the quality of the food more than makes up for it.

Happily recommend this restaurant.
