After show meal

We're going to the Theatre Royal to see a matinee performance and just before we went into the theatre we decided that it would be nice to have a meal after the show. We managed to book a table at Zaferellis for 6 people we had 4 children and 2 adults in our party. The waiting staff were very... read more

Have eaten here twice before and food is very good. The only thing that let it down was the strong, smell of cleaning fluid which hit us on entering and remained throughout the meal. Another reviewer has mentioned this I notice. Apart from that, food was delicious, staff were friendly and prices are very reasonable. Will definitely be returning on... More

Stumbled across this lovely little find whilst looking for somewhere for dinner! Atmosphere is wonderful! Authentic Italian, bustling and friendly staff! Wide range of food and very reasonably priced! Great sized food portions (defeated my other half and he can eat!!) and the food was delicious! Constant turn over of people which to us proved it was a great find!... More

Popped into this restaurant while having a short break in Brighton - just randomly walked past it and thought we'd give it a go, even though the front looked a little tired. We weren't disappointed. The waiter was very funny and there was a relaxed atmosphere in the dining area. The food was great - the breaded Mozzarella starter was... More

Stumbled across this by chance and glad we did. Pretty standard Italian choices but absolutely packed with flavour. The best carbonara I have ever had. House wine was more than palatable and the predominately Italian staff added a touch of the Med to a wild and windy English winter evening. It may be further out of The Lanes trendiness than...

I've eaten here several times and just love going here because I know I won't be disappointed. The staff have always been really helpful and friendly, the food has always been of good quality and amazing value for money. They have a number of different pre-theatre set menu options too which are great.

Visited only as it was part of a gourmet card deal. By the look from the street I had walked past many times without considering dining there. It was January and quiet. Aside for 2 solo diners we were the only customers. The restaurant had a strong smell of bleach and the staff serving us (although attentive) changed each time... More

Found this Restaurant by chance on a recent trip to Brighton and what a find it was. The service and food are amazing. It is not expensive and has an authentic and varied menu, unlike the chain Restaurant opposite.

A very enjoyable meal in a very Italian family run restaurant. Staff very friendly and helpful couldn't do enough for us. The food was fabulous recommend the Sea Bass with almonds lots of sauce roast potatoes ( nice change from boiled ones) and vegetables and not forgetting a lovely bottle of red. Well done.

I can not rate this place highly enough. I true authentic Italian. The staff were very accommodating and very friendly. The food was fresh and tasted amazing, I highly recommend the mushroom risotto. The portions are large and booking a table is recommend as the restaurant isn't very big and it's very popular
