We were essentially herded into the seating area by the relatively charming owner. Unfortunately I get the feeling that restaurant survives by the show the owner and staff out the front put on to make you feel welcome, which we witnessed three times while there. They certainly still aren't in business on the basis of good food. When I complained... More

Some very mixed reviews on here, but I can only rate as I found it. Great tasty food cooked with fresh ingredients. I had the seafood risotto which was fantastic. The best I have had in any restaurant. My wife had a pasta dish which was equally well received. My children are not big eaters and opted for the minestrone... More

We are a couple of italians, we moved in London two years ago and both of us with restaurant experience. We went in Brighton for a one day getaway and we decided to have a dinner in this restaurant. One of the worst experience in our life: the prices were good and the food as well (even if the pasta... More

It looks like a nice typical Italian restaurant from the outside, but unfortunately I didn't get a very nice Italian experience. Awful customer service, the waiter looked bored, gave us a half smile when we walked in and took ages to even take our drinks order. We ordered the house white, which tasted like warm vinegar, so that was lovely... More

My partner has coeliac disease and cannot eat gluten so we are somewhat cautious when it comes to eating out, however, Italian restaurants have always been very accommodating so we (wrongly) assumed that Zafferelli would be. First of all, I never saw our waiter smile once. We asked if they did gluten free food and he barked at us that... More

I was appalled by the lack of any customer service in this incredibly average Italian. When we arrived we waited for around 15 minutes to order after we were ready, and then the women could not take the food and drink order at once and we had to wait for another waiter to take our food order. When the bill... More

So i just visited This establishment, the service was fast but unwelcoming, the place was almost empty. It is dull, and quite boring, loud overpowering italian music, which would be better if it was turned down/off. The food was bland, poorly cooked, and warm. The rocket salad garnish served on the side of the calzone was dead, my main was... More

Think we must have gone to a different restaurant than some of the other reviewers but I can only speak as I found. The food was good and the service very good. No problems here and would be happy to go their again, and no, I am not easily pleased.

We had a very poor meal, tasteless and bland, atmosphere was dull and the service was just rude and unforgivable. They charge 10% service with us not deserving at all. With so meant excellent restaurants in Brighton, this is one to be avoided.
