We had prawn cocktail followed by spaghetti carbonara, both of which were good. Service was efficient and speedy. Total bill for... read more

Good food but very rude customer service!! Me and my girlfriend went there for lunch and firstly, the waiter/manager stared and us judging because we ordered water! He was also very pushy, forcing us to buy more food and telling us to stay longer by ordering coffee and dessert when we really wanted to make this the quickest lunch possible... More

We were going to a show at the Theatre Royal and popped in for a meal beforehand. Great service and great pasta that is made on the premises. Definitely going to return.

This was the place we had our New Year's Eve dinner and it was so pleasant. The staff were very attentive and the food was superb. It's always nice to get good service without anyone knowing you're a tourist and to have great food and wine is even better.

visited here after many years with a friend. The food was exquisite and plenty of it. The strong Italian voices from the waiters and a rather nice older gentleman only added to the atmosphere. A far far better choice than the chain Italian restaurants. The restaurant went over and above offering us their patio heater when we sat outside after... More

Great service, atmosphere and food. Well priced and very tasty. Staff are lovely and extend a warm welcome. Servings are generous, well presented and tasty - make sure you check out the specials. Good wine to compliment. Well done team Zafferelli!

In Brighton for business. So many restaurants to choose from! We we're examine the menu and the manager came and greeted us, was very friendly so we wandered in - and we're not dissappointed. Entree and main (a well cooked and flavoursome lamb shoulder) was lovely and a generous serving. Good value for money. The staff were friendly and looked... More
