Went with my wife midweek. Food was excellent as was the wine i had (Barolo). Service very good and friendly. A bit expensive but we knew that before we went in. Would we go back, yes definitely!

Popped in for an impromptu midweek evening meal with a friend after seeing good reviews on TripAdvisor. I'm not sure we would have gone in here on the offchance otherwise as it looked quite empty and perhaps a bit 'traditional' at first sight compared to other restaurants in the vicinity. But it soon filled up. First impressions were indeed misleading.... More

This place was perfect, near to hotels and a very decent price! (£30) for two meals and a small bottle of wine. The staff were all excellent and very friendly. They made jokes and were very attentive and fast to serve. The restaurant takes good care of detail you even get lemon sorbet at the end of the meal to... More

Very impressive, lovely restaurant with an extensive menu and all the choices of our group looked really tasty and well presented, and the poached pears with cinnamon ice cream were delicious! The service was welcoming, friendly and very efficient and there was both good attention to detail and nice added touches. Thoroughly recommended.

This is a traditional Italian restaurant with much more formal dining than either a pizza eatery or indeed their sister restaurant, Pomodoro, two doors away. It is in an old hotel building and has the appearance of a classy hotel foyer. It was quiet when we visited on a Monday evening and the lack of fellow diners detracted form the... More

A recent birthday visit. Very enjoyable. Service friendly and attentive but not overly intrusive. Food good. A good selection of choices in each category.

Has the feel of an old fashioned Italian hotel - warm reception and attentive service throughout. Had the set menu with plenty of choices and generous fresh portions. Ice cream home-made. Really lovely evening on a quiet Sunday evening. We had a 10% discount voucher but forgot to use it (next time), but to be honest it was really reasonable... More

My wife and I dined here on Friday evening (02/01/2015) and I could not find fault. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. The food was exquisite as was the wine and the ambience. When I am next in Eastbourne I shall be dining here and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Always enjoy the experience in their sister restaurant so disappointed. Perhaps my expectations were too high. But I think your money is better spent next door
