Excellent food and service. Visited evening in January, come the spring it will have fantastic evening sea views. Food authentic Italian and well presented. The Chowder was fantastic, the fish portions were huge. Would definitely come again.

We normally head towards the busy end of town & saw this and gave it a go. The food was fabulous and we felt "treated". Italian food that was thought out. We ended up having the whole 3 courses (naughty) but it was all good.

We booked this restaurant online, and also dropped in the evening before to confirm. On arrival we were very disappointed that our table was not setup and ready for our party.

The choice of food is such that whether there are 10 of us with 6 adults & 4 children or 2 of us for a lunch on a sunny day... More

This is possibly the best Italian in Brighton!! Great seasonal menu, all fresh and prepared freshly, perfect seafront location - and the staff could not be anymore helpful and friendly! Really nice for lunch or dinner, we go there for any excuse :-)
