    dined on 22/08/2014
  • "We ate here a couple of nights ago we booked through open table and we found Amici Bedford very friendly the food was excellent, we were not rushed in any way and could not fault the service at all"
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "I booked this for my siters birthday, it was a lovely place with great food. We will definately be going back soon .. there is a well known italian chain restaurant opposite..why would you go there when you can have the real thing across the road"
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "Friendly,informal staff who manage to be attentive without being overbearing.We dined on a thursday evening - the place being circa 60% full.We chose the garden- not especially aesthetic but pleasant enough on a hot night. Menu almost unchanged from our last visit almost a year ago-maybe due a revision.Prices reasonable with both having just a starter and a main plus bottle of wine the bill was about £73 - with tip £80- reasonable but certainly not cheap.Lager expensive with no offered choice,beer not in evidence."
    dined on 24/07/2014
  • "An early evening meal so the restaurant was very quiet - not the best time to be assessing it properly. We had a good service and overall it was a reasonable meal though nothing exceptional and a little pricey."
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "Individual, family run and very friendly. So glad we chose this instead of the any town chain restaurants nearby. My fellow friends really enjoyed if too - a real asset to the Bedford restaurant scene."
    dined on 19/07/2014

    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "Had family lunch following graduation ceremony. It was a very hot day and restaurent was quiet which I initially found worrying although diners joined after we were seated. Would have liked to sit outside but just too hiot. Food was very good from fairly limited al a carte menu. Service was friendly and unobtrusive. Very nice Italian meal."

    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "I have been visiting Amicis for years now and the reason I keep.coming back... Fresh Quality Food! The menu is varied but unlike most Italian restaurants is not pages long which highlights the food at Amicis is freshly prepared and to add delicious! There is always a specials board too to tempt you. Halil is front of house and is a true gentlemen. His team are warm and friendly and attentive.Prices are really reasonable. Weekly you can dine 2 courses for £10 or if wanting something a little more special I recommend their steaks!! Love this place whether its for a romantic meal with my husband, the start to a girls night out or a family occasion.You must visit!!!!"

  • "This is the second time I have eaten at this restaurant and it was just as good as my first visit. I will definitely dine at Amici again and would gladly recommend it to anyone looking for a restaurant that serves great food with great service and in a nice location too away from the hustle and bustle of the nearby High Street. I would also highly recommend to anyone visiting Amici for the first time to try the Limoncello Gelato dessert."
    dined on 11/05/2014
  • "We were given our favourite table again and the service, as usual, was extremely good. Nothing is too much trouble for the very efficient staff and the patron. As all meals are prepared individually the chef is happy to cater for special dietary requirements if at all possible and this is really appreciated. The menu has interesting dishes and the specials board offers additional choices. Portions are not small so make sure you are hungry when you go! "

  • "We sat in the back garden which had a lovely ambience, I especially loved that the tables were well spaced, they could have crammed a lot more in. The food was delicious and they were fabulous in accommodating the needs of a celiac in the party (definitely a place to go if you want our dietary needs thoughtfully met). The staff were great, helpful, chatty, prompt but not over-bearing at all. But the cheesecake! Homemade and divine, go for that alone!"
    dined on 26/07/2013
  • "We visited this restaurant to celebrate my birthday and we were a group of 5. The service was unfailingly friendly and efficient and the staff went out of their way to accommmodate our wishes. The menu choice was excellent and we had trouble trying to decide which of the delicious-sounding dishes to try. The food came in good time and was as delicious as it sounded. It was great to be able to sit outside in the courtyard on a hot evening, though I would suggest some potted plants and fairy lights to improve the atmosphere outside. Altogther we had a fantastic evening and will certainly be returning."
    dined on 13/07/2013
  • "Everything was just so. Can't really ask for more."
    dined on 30/06/2013
  • "Having driven past taking son to school on many occasions, my wife and I decided to try our luck and book a table via toptable whilst we were parked outside. Thankfully there was 1 table for 2 remaining and in we went. Wife of owner met us and was very helpful, finding us a table and her husband, the owner took us to our table and was also very friendly. Service was fantastic, great atmosphere and the food was amazing and great value for money. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone...I am a foody and my biggest gripe with most restaurants is service levels...and I can say that this restaurant is up there amongst the best. Keep it up, we both look forward in coming back soon!!"
    dined on 28/06/2013

    dined on 01/06/2013

    dined on 25/04/2013
  • "Lovely meal,staff are very friendly and helpful,good atmosphere"
    dined on 19/04/2013
  • "Amazing food. I'm very fussy with my food and everything from starter to desert was spot on."
    dined on 13/04/2013
  • "Meal was lovely, however would have liked to have seen a few more seafood dishes on the menu. eg - RISOTTO ALLA MARINARA/SPAGHETTI ALLA MARINARA etc Put off having parmesan cheese - It was kept on the side and was carried over in the hand of the waiter from table to table. I understand that it is used regualarly, but waiters hands would have handled money as well as countless other things and then handled the parmesan to customer - not appealing to a customer to then have it grated on their food. Could have been kept in a covered dish to make is slightly more appealing Other than that, the service was friendly and efficient."
