Nice seafront Italian

Had lunch with a few friends her on Sunday. Enjoyable Italian lunch. Calzone was one of the best I have had. Reasonably priced.

The views over the sea are great especially on a hot summer's day. Unfortunately the food does not live up to the image of the restaurant. I had a colzaghi pizza, it was huge but mainly bread with not much filling inside. The filling itself was very bland with not much flavour. I had a tomato and spinach pasta dish... More

We were on a walk along hove/Brighton see front and visited this restaurant. We had coffee and cake which was reasonably priced, but my son had a can of coke which was the outrageous price of £2.40 for 330ml,which is a massive mark up. It was ok, but would not rush back.

I honestly can not recommend Alfesco's highly enough. The venue, team and food is amazing. We had our wedding reception there, Alexandra and Ingrid were incredible from start to finish, and the whole team that day were great. They honestly made our day and can not thank them enough. I highly recommend if you are down in Brighton, live in... More

Fantastic position if slightly spoilt by construction site next door, though is something to look at! Food good, portions large, well cooked and presented. Calzone pizza looked excellent, little food envy there. Service attentive and polite and no hurry.

This is a medium sized very clean restaurant and busy. It is a beachfront restaurant in Brighton. Lovely setting. This family run restaurant which provides excellent service and authentic Italian. The menu changes seasonally and the chef uses organics whenever possible. I ordered the Pan fried & roasted chicken and the Tomato onion salad with fresh tomatoes. The chicken was... More

We have now been to Alfresco several times. This time it was for a family celebration. The location, food and service are all very good. If you are looking for somewhere that is not too formal or stuffy with a good atmosphere then this is the place.

We hosted 2 back-to-back business breakfasts at Alfresco. It is a fantastic setting, looking out over the West Pier and the exciting i360 site, and the food was delicious.
