We visited this restaurant last night, the food is very tasty, decent sized portions and served up beautifully. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Food quality is 'top notch' in my opinion.

What a great place! Came here quite late [10pm] and was their last customer-made to feel extremely welcome. Food fantastic-original and delicious, but it was the wonderful friendly welcome and the readiness to make dining out alone a really enjoyable experience that meant that I'll be back, and that next time I'll take my family as well!

I really don't want to put a bad review up for this place as it's great. The atmosphere is excellent and the staff are really friendly. The food is not bad, it's just nothing out standing and it's not the cheapest place. I'd probably give the place another try though.

Visited on a busy Saturday night. Made very welcome and was amazed by the attentive staff and detailed menu, not forgetting the well priced wine list. I had the garlic mushroom starter and vesuvio pizza, which after being drizzled with chilli oil was superb. Fabulous food and very reasonably priced. Will visit again.

In Brighton, for a few days I stopped for a (solo) evening meal in this restaurant. Good food. Superb (and I mean Superb) service. I had vegetarian tortolleni (is that the right spelling) in a lovely tomato sauce. Quickly served. Afterwards a dessert and coffee. Everything was fine. I particularly enjoyed the 'ambience' of the place. Just right for a... More

We were a family of six booked in at 8.30 on a Friday evening. We were seated downstairs and treated very courteously by our waiters. Drinks were excellent, a bottle of Prosecco, a Peroni beer, a G & T, an Appletise and plenty of tap water. We shared a number of starters and they were excellent. For mains we had... More
