3 of us ate tonight - on arrival a very charming man welcomed us very warmly to the table and was very efficient and friendly throughout. Food was served with little delay and was tasty and fresh. Atmosphere and spaciousness of restaurant very impressive.

We had decided to visit Hove to visit some charity shops, find somewhere for lunch and a walk along the promenade on a lovely warm autumn day. My partner suggested we go for an Italian meal and we were spoiled for choice of several in a short distance. My partner said there are a few people in Orsino let's give... More

I visit this restaurant quite often. It is always lovely and it never disappoints. Staff are nice, attentive and friendly. Food is glorious and great value. If I have one teensy weensy criticism, it is that that they could have a much wider vegetarian option. It's only a minor flaw though and I wouldn't let it put you off ever... More

Fabulous. Acacio, the Manager and his staff, were as always, happy and attentive, making our lunchtime memorable. Thank you Kevin for the most delicious lunch, grilled Seabream on the bone, FANTASTIC! Look forward to seeing you all again soon.

We often come here but this time we managed a bad time, saturday evening, a large party had just gone another arrived. Although the food was tasty and excellent as always - the service and organisation had gone to pot (hence why there was no tip on this payment). Booking online failed to get a response so we called and... More

The salad nicoise was just tinned tuna and a load of leaves, an egg and a few anchovies and lumps of cucumber, pretty tasteless... The veal Milanese was tasteless. It needed something... The pizza was great. The Pinot Grigio was warm... I added ice... It's ok for a quick tasteless pasta... Sorry but I know they can do better.

I have visited this restaurant many times over the years and have always had a lovely experience. The food is classic Italian and perfectly cooked. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is quite expensive, but worth it for a special occasion.

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

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