We have been going to this restaurant for a number of years. Hove is blessed with many good restaurants but Orsino is something special. The staff are first rate: friendly and attentive but without being intrusive, nothing is too much trouble. An added bonus is a warm welcome from the owner who, unlike most, is often there at the restaurant.... More

We visited Orsino's for a family meal early one Saturday evening. There is not much to say..the food tastes and looks as if it has come out a freezer from Iceland. Everything is beige and tasteless . My husband ordered a steak it cost £24 was overcooked and looked exactly like a meal you would get in a harvester for... More

Have visited this restaurant twice now. I would certainly say the pizzas and pastas are tasty and very good value for money. If you are looking to stray to other parts of the menu, then be prepared to be a little disappointed, particularly considering the price point. Certainly visit for good value pizza/pasta dishes though!

I've been going to this restaurant on and off for about 30 years. Not so much lately. Went there yesterday. Positives. Good service. Nicely refurbished. Negatives. Asked for French bread and butter and got warm rolls with melted butter. Ordered two Peronis. We were given Coca Cola glasses to drink them from. The two fillet steaks were over cooked. Mine...

I went here for dinner after not visiting for years. Orsino's has been around for years in Hove. The experience for me was hit and miss. I loved the starter salmon and shrimp dish which was delicious. However, I was feeling adventurous and decided to try calves liver. What was I thinking? It was a huge dish and too rich... More

Background: I used to love this place about 10-12 years ago. It was always full. And the food was amazing. But it went downhill and I stopped going there. However, I've been hearing food things so we went for a visit... Ambience: Quiet. No kids thank god. Service: A great bunch of guys always willing to have a laugh. Just... More

We have been going to this restaurant for years, always great value with friendly staff. We have had quite a few get togethers with friends and a few birthday parties. The can cater for groups with a light touch. Tables outside when the weather is good to watch the world go by. Food is always well presented and the portions... More

What a disappointment. The reviews surprise me and do point to the fact that customers clearly don't know quality Italian food from frozen, or re-heated, bought in stodge. Firstly, the food here would set any Italian reeling from its lack of authenticity and also bankrupt from the price of some of the dishes (Veal £19?, really?) Secondly, "Italian", let's look...
