Went there last week while on a short break to Eastbourne. We thought this place looked better than most of the restaurants in Terminus Road, and so it proved to be.

A classy Italian this. All the waiters, both male & female spoke with Italian accents (suspect some were cast-offs from The Sopranos) !! Service was very efficient & extremely good humoured. No complaints with the food, all 4 of us enjoyed both starters & main courses. Only slight complaints were that portions could have been larger & the Italian wines... More

Great Italian food. Friendly entertaining staff. Reservations highly recommended as the restaurant is very popular and often full. The adjoining pizzaria also has fine food if you prefer less formal dining.

Great menu with something for everyone. Nice atmosphere and very good service. A bit more expensive than other places but probably worth it. We got a complementary brandy as well

We were greeted and seated by very friendly staff. The menu was handed to us and bread , butter and olives were placed straight away. Brilliant ! The rest of the meal was wonderful food very good, and at the end of the meal we were offered a liqueur on the house, a very enjoyable evening.

We booked this restaurant after reading the good reviews on Tripadvisor. And we weren't disappointed. It's so good to go to an Italian restaurant where the food is authentically Italian and there are varied and interesting dishes on the menu. The service was excellent too - friendly and fun waiters!

We booked a table here at short notice to cheer my in laws up and what a great choice. The staff are bright and friendly, the food authentic Italian and really tasty and the price not bad at all. £130 for 4 people, including beer, mineral water and a bottle of wine. The menu has loads of choice with pasta,... More
