Food poisoning for all

We visited this place on the 1st of January after a teenager of our group insisted on having pizza. We were seated at a very narrow table at the back of the restaurant, and as there were 7 of us, we struggled to sit and order food. The waitresses were shouting when talking to each other or when... read more

I'm a regular to Fat Leo's and love this place. Great value menu and prompt service. How anyone can complain about the food here is beyond me! £10 for 3 courses is excellent value. House red wine is good too!

A group of six of us ate there on Christmas Eve and Boxing day - we were staying nearby so it was very convenient. The food was such good value - I couldn't believe the price of a main dish is what I was used to paying for a starter! The service was good as well. The food was of... More

Four adults, three young girls, starving hungry and cold on New Years Day on a day trip to Brighton. Where do you choose to eat, well a nice warm inviting pizzeria of course! It helps also when they advertise two courses for £7.50! We were all very impressed with the starters and mains and the Kids loved the desserts. The... More

Went here for a quick bite to eat prior to a party in town. Service was quick and efficient, the food was passable and cheap. Plenty of better restaurants in the area but if you want a cheap bite then this is ok.

Fat Leo's wasnt our first choice of restaurant but once visited we will be back. The food was fantastic and great value for money. Very busy restaurant and catered for all ages. A definite must to visit and sample the catering.

Good value 2 course meal but I would expect an Italian restaurant to have a decent pizza. The dough was horrible and inedible.

Me and my boyfriend went for their evening menu, 2 courses for £7.50 (plus service charge.) The service we had was great on a Friday evening in December I expected it to be heaving but they coped well. The food itself was ok. Had brucessta to start which wasn't bad and then I had a chicken pizza for main. The... More

We visited for lunch during the christmas rush and the restaurant was largely empty which speaks for itself. The set menu is extremely reasonable but having sent my main course back once as it was not what I asked for, exactly the same dish was returned to the table. The waitresses could barely understand what we were saying (have been... More
