Restaurant was situated close to where we were staying at the Twenty One and was suggested by the owners. It was an exceptionally warm evening and we were glad to find an independent Italian nearby. Good menu and quite a few specials. Lovely bruschetta which didn't threaten to break my teeth- bonus! I had swordfish from the specials. Very tasty... More

Once seated all went smoothly. Staff good fun and food delicious though my spicy meatballs were mot what I would call... More

Solid Italian food; owner personally stops by; and preparation and presentation are fine. I have visited on my last two trips to the Kemptown section of Brighton.

Superb food and service in this family run restaurant. We went on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was very busy, but the kitchen for the most part kept pace. The waiting staff were attentive, enthusiastic and friendly in that wonderful amateurish italian way. A great dining experience. The pasta and sauces were top notch and my Sea Bass was... More

Husband had a pizza which was heavy with cheese, making it very tasty! Nice wine, good olives too. Good location, only complaint was it was boiling hot inside, could do with better ventilation, the staff must... More

Went here on Saturday night. It was extremely busy but we had booked and was offered the choice of upstairs or basement. We chose upstairs as it was slightly quieter. The four of us had a variety of dishes and all were very good the sea bass being large and well cooked. Although it was very busy we didn't feel... More
