Me and my partner went out for dinner here, the food was okay but the service was terrible. They were rude and offhand all night, tending to bigger parties most likely because they will give a higher tip. The man who served us acted like it was a chore to bring us food and when we asked for the bill... More

We took a large group to the restaurant and were asked to supply a pre-order to ensure smooth service. Upon arrival at the restaurant we were informed that the reception staff had passed our pre-order to the restaurant, this in turn meant that we were in the restaurant for an hour longer than anticipated, therefore we were charged for additional...

This is a buzzing little Brighton trattoria that gets really busy around theatre and concert time - it is only a few metres away from the Theatre Royal and the Dome - as well as doing a roaring trade at other times, due to its good, solid Italian food, lovely atmosphere, friendly and helpful waiting staff and very reasonable prices....

I visit Brighton three times a year from New York to visit family. Pinocchio has been a family favorite for us for ages. We were borderline devastated when the who;e place went up in flames over a year ago. It was a total delight to see it open again, the staff are like old friends and take the greatest trouble...

It started well, although I felt the waitress was rushing to take our order. Our starters were nice and came out quickly. Then when she brought out our mains she handed me a seafood risotto instead of a seafood pizza. When I politely told her she had it wrong she tried to leave it anyway. I called her back and... More

Food was great but I think the service needs improvement. It might be the time but that shouldn't be a factor. I have tried two different pasta dishes and three different pizza at this restaurant... I would rate it a 5 for the food but due to the service, I have to say it was a 3.5... I am going... More
