Best Italian in Brighton!!

My partner and I have been to a lot of Italian restaurants in Brighton and this is our favourite! The food is truly excellent!! I couldn't choose between 2 of the mains, so the waiter said he would give me a smaller portion of the pasta as a starter so I could have both dishes! This worked out... read more

We visited twice in May 2015 and had two different experiences. The first night we were seated upstairs, the service was excellent and our pasta dishes beautifully cooked plus the atmosphere was great. We returned the following night and ended up downsatirs, no atmosphere, one waiter totally run off his feet poor chap therefore indifferent service. I ordered steak, medium... More

Delicious food. Kids said was the best pizza they ever ate! Whitebait was tasty and chef made past sauce just as I asked. Very impressed. Would highly recommend.

We were directed here by the owner of our B and B, after a stressful day of traveling. There are about 12 tables, it is nicely decorated and very comfy-cozy. The menu is extensive, the wine list well thought out and covering all the bases for most tastes. The food was excellent, and reasonably-priced. Service was absolutely topnotch. It was... More

We spent a lovely Sunday afternoon here, sat In the window watching the world go by while enjoying some delicious authentic Italian food. We started with some pizza garlic and rosemary bread which was superb, thin and crispy and drenched in garlic, not for the faint hearted or vampires!! We then shared a carbonara which was one of the best... More

I recently visited this restaurant after a girls weekend to Brighton following a recommendation, and it didn't disappoint. They were accommodating to our large party as a relatively last minute booking considering they were busy, the service was great, very friendly and helpful. The menu was authentic, traditional Italian and it was delicious. I am a bit of a traditionalist... More

Visited the restaurant this month for a birthday celebration. The decor is very rustic and if you've ever been to Florence and Tuscany you will be transported back to Italy for a true authentic experience. Having lived in Brighton my whole life I have done my fair share of 'bargain carb factory' restaurants with the likes of Donatello etc etc.... More

This is an old Brighton favourite and worth going to for some flavoursome authentic cooking! We went early on a Sunday lunchtime so had one of the window tables, it was quiet but soon started getting busier, I'd suggest booking for busier times. The menu is not massive but very tasty. It may be slightly more expensive than other restaurants... More
