Absolutely the worst steaks we have ever had, anywhere. AND they have the cheek to add a service charge to the bill automatically. Awful food!

Found by chance, just noticed that many Itlians were eating there usually a good sign. Service was quick and the food was well cooked and delicious .

Me and my friend were looking for a nice Italian place to eat, as I fancied a good carbonara! Found this place by chance, stopped to look at the menu outside seeing that the carbonara was only £6.45 which is great, and a lovely little Italian man caught our attention and pulled us in, telling us he would do us...

On a day trip to Brighton and we didn't want lunch in one of the usual chains so when we were looking around we stumbled across this place. Though it looked dark and empty from outside we decided to give it a go as the menu looked good. The waiting staff were friendly and we were well looked after. Our... More

I'm not normally a fan of Italian food mainly due to the tasteless chain-restaurant food you get but the food here is excellent! My fussy 4year old loved his carbonara, saying virtually the whole plate! The veal saltimbocca was perfectly cooked and seasoned and my husband said it was the best meal out he has had in a long time.... More

We received excellent service from all the staff and our food was stunning and reasonably priced. The staff even gave us complimentary Limoncello after the meal. Would 100% go back.

Been a few times, never disappoints and a good variety of dishes. Great location, never had a bad service experience but not always as attentive as other restaurants although that doesn't detract from a great meal

Needing lunch after the Royal Pavilion tour we found this Italian restaurant close by. Greeted at the door enthusiastically and quickly shown to a window table. Very polite and attentive staff, speedy service of drinks and then followed by excellent food. Would certainly revisit
