Average meal, good service

It was nice to sit outside although it could have been a bit more comfortable (wobbly table and low chairs) . We were. Group of 4, I would say that 2 of the meals were good (calzone and steak) but the other 2 pizzas were average. We were content to sit and chat while having an after dinner drink... read more

I'm surprised to see so many negative reviews here. I've been to Zafferelli 6/7 times now, and wouldn't hesitate to go back. When my parents come down to visit me in Brighton, Zafferelli is their go-to restaurant of choice, and I've taken a number of friends there too who have also never expressed disappointment. The service is fabulous, and the... More

Real good food and service. I requested something off menu and it was done perfectly. Two courses and drinks came in at £75

My friend and I had a meal here as it was close to the theatre and we were going to see a show. We had 2 courses from the "Theatre Menu" for £9.95 each with wine total bill was only £30.00 which included a service charge. The food was excellent and service very good. I can't understand the bad review... More

Excellent location to sit outside in the sun and people watch. Everything is reasonably priced and good value, and they have a large menu to choose from. I had the cannelloni which was good and the garlic bread (couldn't taste garlic) and Pinot Grigio (which tasted watered down). Found the service to be quick and attentive, with no problem. Overall...

I went along here this weekend, we managed to get a table outside which was lovely as the weather was stella. We both went for a two course set menu. I had the Tomato & Mozzarella Salad, and then the Spaghetti Carbonara. Other options on the main menu for the set included pizza, and mussels. The price was £6.95 and... More

we were going to a concert in Brighton and wanted a place to eat. I prefer independent restaurants and this was one close to the theatre. The food was very good - I had calves liver with bacon and my partner Pasta. Wine was very reasonable for the quality and the service was excellent. Oh! you must try he gelato... More

I don't understand the bad reviews. I think some people expect 5 star service in a standard establishment. We personally had a lovely dining experience here. I had the lamb shank which came with large cut chips and bf had the prawn and scallop linguini, both from the Specials menu. We both loved our dishes and I don't even like... More

The restaurant was only half-full, but we had to go and collect our menus - none were offered to us. We had to go and fetch a waiter to make our order, as nobody came over. And then we had to go over to the counter to get the pepper and parmesan cheese, as the waiter forgot about them/us. The... More
