Very good service, excellent choice, excellent food I would eat here again. I didn't book but would in future to ensure a table as it can get very busy.

Delicious and not expensive! I had lasagne and a seafood salad one night and pizza one afternoon, all really good. It's definitely a popular place and there are lots of locals there. There is an outside eating area for nice days.

The staff were all friendly and charming and always had a smile on their face although being busy. The food was quite simply superb. If you like Italian food look no further, you won't be disappointed.

We ate here last night after reading good reviews. We were staying in camber, which was completely disappointing. We drove the 10-15 mins into Rye. I called at 5pm and booked for 5:30, the staff were friendly and accommodating. The food was lovely and the price was super! I highly recommend Simply Italian!

We often come here on a Friday evening when arriving for a weekend stay at Camber Sands. It's a busy place at the weekend, so a reservation is advised. The food is always good, at reasonable prices. Favourites are the pizzas and the seafood spaghetti. Hubs often had the chicken or steak, and is always happy with it. The kids... More

We had a fantastic meal at Simply Italian last night. Food was cooked to perfection, very tasty desserts, and coffee. Can't describe how polite and cheerful management and staff are,when woman sitting next to us was so rude complaining about waitress which didn't do anything wrong. I would lose my patience dealing with people like her, but not them! Highly... More

We'd arrived in Camber for a four day stay and after a terrible experience checking in to our accommodation late afternoon we needed to get out and find somewhere to eat. Being a Friday night and not having made reservations anywhere we decided to head off to Rye in search of a Fish and Chip restaurant we'd found online with... More

This is a large restaurant not far from the centre. Food is good, but not much out of the ordinary - what you would expect for an Italian restaurant. Plenty of pasta and pizza. Service was very friendly. We were a large crown of 13, and booking a table for us all was not so easy, even booking 4 weeks... More
