Delicious, authentic Italian

Whilst waiting for our main meal we were served the most delicious garlic bread. The staff were friendly and the service efficient.

Visited Casalingo after reviewing Trip advisor. Lovely restaurant ,staff very attentive . Food was delicious, I recommend the stuffed figs for starters, which were to die for and the desserts are all home made, we had the Lemon Cheesecake 😊. The only downside is it's a bit pricy .

Brilliant place, fitted us in and served us delicious authentic food with good humour and style. Couldn't fault any of our six mains and the starters and desserts were fabulous too. House wine very acceptable. Visited on the strength of Trip Advisor recommendations - and happy to add ours to the list. Grazie Mille Casalingo!

Fantastic little Italian in Brighton, everything we tried was delicious but the steak in particular was absolutely incredible - perfectly cooked, and the sauce was fantastic. It was my fiancee's birthday, and they made a big show of dimming all the lights, Stevie Wonder playing in the background, as they brought over our cake with the obligatory candle. A great... More

Not the largest restaurant so the TripAdvisor recommendation to book is spot on. We visited on Bank holiday Saturday - the place was full but the staff were all very attentive, helpful and friendly. Food was excellent particularly recommend the baked figs with goat's cheese wrapped in Parma ham starter.

I chose this restaurant based on the reviews I had read here but by the end of the meal I felt a little disappointed. We all had starters and mains, the mussels and goats cheese wraps were dleicious, the calamari anemic and chewy.
