We've visited dolce Salato on numerous occasions since they opened. They started as a deli, offering a cafe style lunch. They now open evenings in the latter part of the week. The food, in particular the pizzas are as authentic an Italian pizza as you can get in the UK, helped no doubt by the fact the couple who run the business are both Italian and are passionate about the food they serve.
The pasta, not that I'm a fan of pasta usually, is superb. You can tell its been freshly made to order. ( my favourite is the pumpkin filled ravioli with mushroom truffle sauce)
Recommended if your in the area and are primarily interested in genuine italian, and a different dining experience to the usual high st Italian restaurants.

Being Dutch tourist, who also visit Italy regularly, we consider the UK the best place to have Italian food, next to Italy. The Prezzos end Zizzis have never disappointed, however, after visiting Dolce Salato in Billingshurst (of all places) a couple of times we have to adjust our opinion. Because of the fresh and super quality ingredients, kept in a perfect balance, the cosy atmosphere and a very friendly staff Dolce Salato would be one of Italy's best.

Go there regularly now as the food is so good. Pizzas are the best I've tasted in England better than any dominos or pizza hut. Still working our way through the menu to try everything on offer. Restaurant only has a few tables which makes the atmosphere better.

I'm a local to this restaurant and eat there regularly. Everything about it is superb, the service is spot on, that difficult blend of attentive without being intrusive and the food is delicious especially the home made puddings. I'd recommend booking as their reputation means they are busy. The ultimate compliment ... I have taken the in-laws here twice now and neither has had a bad word to say about any part of their meal ... a first ... a spectacular first.
