Very very impressed as we... More

Reasonable wine list. Inexpensive by Brighton standards - £55 for a full meal for two including a bottle of Gavi and service charge. Sister restaurant of Donatello. Deceptively spacious but... More

Had a fantastic meal here with my boyfriend. We had Bellini to start and I ate the veal Milanese, delicious! My boyfriend was happy as he enjoyed a big bowl of yummy gluten free pasta. Highly recommend for food, service and authentic Italian atmosphere.
