Friendly greeting, busy but informal. Nice atmosphere. I had lamb shank and husband had steak rossini - both cooked correctly. Very reasonably priced wine list

Friendly service, great food!!

Have been to this restaurant a few times now and have always enjoyed it......this time we went very early evening for a post Christmas family meal, the service was great and friendly, the food was very good and there was a nice relaxed atmosphere.

We visited this restaurant for a birthday celebration for my niece. All started well when drinks were supplied, but went down hill after that. Five of us ordered mozzarella as a starter. When our food eventually arrived the waiter had written down our order incorrectly, so we only had some of the starters to begin with. By the time most... More

I've heard people rave about this place for years but never made it so my girlfriend and I decided it would be a good place to try when stuck in Hove one Saturday night. They were very busy but we had a drink while they sorted a table. However, from there it all went downhill. Slow service, average food and... More

As we walked down Church Street, there were three Italian restaurants within 200 yds of each other. One was New York style (not a fan) one was impossible to read their menus on line and then there was Orsino,s. Orsino's menu went on and on and it was VERY Italian. We always check the reviews on Trip Adviser and all... More

Really friendly staff, food quite good quality bit pricey though...the only let down is lack of atmosphere. Spacious restaurant, quite cold and quite often almost whole empty...:(

Twice in 2 weeks maybe excessive but liked it so much the first time that we returned for more. First visit opted for the fish soup @£20 - good choice. Hot and tasty with a variety of fish, a substantial meal. Others opted for pasta dishes and pizzas. Second visit chose the seafood tagliatelle, another good choice along with pizza... More

This establishment serves the standard Italian offerings and then goes randomly off piste with Mexican, French and other cuisines. The service is good and our food was fine felt that my Calzone pizza was a little undercooked (the wrap tasted of pastry rather than dough). Portion size was reasonable,
