I tried this place because I wanted a nice Italian meal and after reading the great reviews on tripadvisor I was confident I was going to get what I wanted. Instead we received a very average meal and left completely unsatisfied. Not sure I would recommend this place to friends....

Ended up here without planning but enjoyed great Italian food at a local rest. The waiters were friendly and food served was of good quality! Photos: oyster in white wine sauce, linguine with seafood and dover sole. A bit expensive but Great wine and and dine overall !

Thank you to Mario and staff for a wonderful two nights of their fabulous food, whilst staying in Brighton. My Husband and I were down for a few nights and ate here on the first night. The food is beautifully cooked, with a good choice of fish, meat pasta etc - so good it was a hard decision! I had... More

This low key restaurant is located just off the seafront on a street crowded with options. The staff were very helpful with menu suggestions and the food was of good quality and plentiful. Everyone else seemed to have a good time in this non intimidating restaurant.

Went to Casalingo for dinner. Amazing Italian food. Truly authentic and a great Italian staff to boot. The linguini pescatore was awesome.

I was not ashamed of being Italian as the food was very good. What upset me was the grit in the spinach. It was not washed before cooking and we sent it back. No apologies but an excuse that it must have been freshly ground nutmeg. This was rubbish of course and the manager refused to pass on our advice... More

This place really is a great restaurant. I ate here one night as it was fairly close to a hotel I was using on the seafront and I was eating a lot in Preston Street. The food was fabulous and the service excellent. I wanted something that was not quite on the menu and they were more than obliging. Food... More

By far the best authentic Italian in Brighton. Delicious fresh food (and portions for everyone), friendly yet professional service, and a great overall atmosphere. Highly recommended! Grazie

I myself found my scampi pavaroti really really to my taste. I left the restaurant fully satisfied (pun intended). However, a few of my friends didnt really like their dishes because they said they were pretty bland. (But that's their review, not mine haha). The service is realy good too, never had to wait too long to be tended to.
