This is a great restaurant barely 100m from tourist traps around the Pier. It is hidden away on one of the side streets so perhaps loses out a bit because of that, but at least has still managed to stay authentic. We went there for lunch with our baby in a buggy. The Italian staff member helped us park the... More

The taste of the food is very far from the taste you can try in a medium quality restaurant in Italy. In addition I think that both the pasta and the sauce are not made at the moment that you order (as in Italy do) but are pre - cooked long time in advance. Of course it can not have... More

The wife and I tried this little gem out on Saturday evening. We hadn't booked and we're shown downstairs to a nice little table, set amongst other couples who were also dining there. A great little place, with excellent service and food all rounded off by a couple of well made Irish coffees (trust me, many restaurants get them wrong)... More

I loved the welcome here, it was very personal and genuine seeming. Warm atmosphere, we talked the night away and time passed quickly. The food was delicious.

This is definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in Brighton. It's very atmospheric, very cosy upstairs, but there's also a much larger downstairs area for bigger groups. It's almost like two separate restaurants. Staff are polite and food is amazing! I do wish they had a website though, that would be useful.

My boyfriend and I decided to come to dinner here for my birthday during a weekend stay in Brighton. We will definitely be back for more delicious prawns, garlic bread and lasagne! Lovely, cosy home feel with friendly staff. Portion sizes good and worth the money. Thank you very much for filling us up and warming us up on a... More

We had a very short walk from our hotel into Brighton Town Centre and came across this lovely place! On first impressions we thought the restaurant was a rather small one however once we were seated downstairs we quickly realised this wasn't the case. The food was fantastic, the service was great - highly recommended!
