Friendly Italian restaurant

Smart room, charming service and food. LIked the chef's recommendations for starter and mains. Italian cheese plate was a bit chilled. If you want to eat on a Saturday do book as it was very busy and we couldn't get in. Returned on Sunday.

I've eaten twice here recently, the food is delicious and the staff are welcoming and friendly. There is a very nice atmosphere,,perfect for couples or small groups of friends. These visits were in the evenings but I would think lunch would be great for families as well

I took my husband here for his birthday along with two other friends. The service was relaxed and efficient, served with a dollop of humour even though the place was busy. I ordered the deep fried prawns which were juicy, plump and came with a thin delicious crispy coating. Afterwards I and one other had the calves liver with the... More

Taken here by my mother in law and her husband, myself, my wife and daughter were in for a treat. The restaurant is centrally placed in Eastbourne and close to the beach area. Tastefully appointed and neatly decorated, it has a quiet, reverential atmosphere, almost library like. The menu was tempting, my only qualms with establishments like this is why... More

Went to this restaurant two nights running during recent visit to Eastbourne.Really good value and very attentive service. Set dinner menu for either two or three courses which excellent, the calves liver is probably the best we have had. Ideal if going to the Congress theatre which only a short walk.

Found this little gem on tripadvisor. Went monday evening and it was fairly busy. Great food, especially the mains. Very friendly accomodating staff. We didn't feel rushed and savoured each course to the full. Will definitely come again. Thank you.

Linen table cloths and napkins. Beautifully laid table and the staff were exceptionally good , friendly and very attentive. The menu , thankfully , was... More

Sister restaurant to Pomodoro next door, but a calmer and more refined experience. Great for special occasions

This is a sort of upmarket version of the restaurant next door, I believe they are under the same ownership, and indeed share the same kitchen. Food and service were very good. Very busy so you will need to book for the weekend, can be a bit noisy, but of course that goes with being busy.
