Stunning Restaurant

This is by far the best restaurant in Eastbourne, the food is exceptional, we are so lucky to have a restaurant of such high quality. My recommendation the mussels to start (simply out of this world) followed by the fish stew ( not something I'd normally pick, but after trying my boyfriends, I... read more

I have been here a few times for family gatherings/reunions/birthdays. Every time we have been, it's been in a large group and they are always very busy besides us, yet the competent team of waiting staff seem to be able to keep us in food and drinks without seeming to neglect anyone else. The food is good quality, comes out... More

We have visited this restaurant on many occasions when staying in Eastbourne. The food was excellent, tasty and very good portions. The service was excellent too. We wish this was local to our home in Bromley! Thank you

My wife and I really enjoyed our authentic Italian meal last night in this traditional Italian restaurant. (If you prefer something more "vibrant" go next door!) All 3 courses (we chose from the table d'hote menu) were really tasty and portions were generous, so much so that we were really full by the end, having nibbled bread and olives to... More

We took some new clients to this lovely authentic restaurant. The food was tremendous with either a la Carte or set menus to chose from, the staff were very good and on hand for any requirements, I would strongly recommend for any occasion and the bill was reasonable for what we had. The Gnocchi is very good best I have... More

We have eaten here several times. The food is well presented, tasty and quite generous portions. It is not cheap but has a good ambience. Staff attentive.

My brother in law booked this restaurant for the four of us, as they like it and I can see why. I am glad we booked as they were full and despite the booking we had to wait a few minutes, but with good customer care the staff gave us a free drink to compensate for this, which is always... More

All of my children have gone through Eastbourne College and a visit to this little Italian restaurant has become a tradition. The Calves liver in sage butter is the best I've tasted and I have had a number of versions in Italy, my youngest daughter especially likes the 'small' selection of desert wines and we generally split a half bottle,...
