Worth every penny. The food is expensive but you really get what you pay for. Classic Italian dishes to perfection. Large meals and the view is incredible. Get a seat next to the window or on the patio if Brighton is putting it on.

Don't need to say much about the view, obviously nice to have your lunch virtually on the beach! Family pizza/pasta lunch, very enjoyable, nice atmosphere, quick, attentive service, good food. Portions are decent size, you need to be hungry (or greedy!) to finish a pizza...More
