Description: A brilliant Italian restuarnt in Bexhill. Quite unexpected! Very busy and the most fantastic seafood pasta I had ever had. Brilliant and a must for those who love Italian cooking and happen to be in Bexhill on Sea

We have eaten here a few times now and it is consistently excellent. The staff are friendly and the food delicious with good flavours and always piping hot (not always a given these days) it is always busy so that is a good sign too. Would recommend to friends and family

I was recommended this place by a regular and being out of town was happy follow the advice. Visiting on a Sunday lunchtime we found it a bright and airy place with a buzzing atmosphere. Virtually all the tables were full, being served by very authentic Mediterranean looking waiters and waitresses dressed in black, rushing around chatting, shouting and generally providing the "professional but chaotic" type of service that only they can.

The food was excellent: I have longed to find Fegato alla Masala live or Veal Saltimbocca in Italian restaurants these days (so many just serve pasta, pizza or meats covered in tomato based sauces. These dishes lived up to expectation, being light, yet very tasty with fresh herbs and butter to finish the sauce. The side dishes too were very good, especially the fried zucchini. Try it if you can.

Puddings were good too.

The meal was punctuated by lots of ambient laughter and banter and the occasional " air kissed" visitor.

Top notch!!!!!!!

Have eaten here many times, for lunch and dinner.

In the more compact original restaurant when things got busy it became quite loud but always very friendly and this created a wonderful "Italian" type atmosphere, but staff never hassled you.

We had lunch at the new premises which was about half full and settled on the luchtime special, which is good value, the food was fine but the waiting staff just would not leave us alone. They seemed to hang around and the instant you paused, perhaps to talk, they tried to take your plate away, had to keep saying we hadn't finished, three waiting staff for one small table of two diners is too much and it doesn't demonstrate or give the impression of efficiency, it's just totally annoying and off putting. When you are trying to have a converstaion you don't need the staff trying to join in. Why hassle us and try to speed us up, there were plenty of spare tables so we were not preventing others from eating.

This never used to happen in the old place so why do it now?

Despite the above we enjoyed our food as we always do here, and will be back but hope the above issues can be rectified

We were a rather large party which was catered for very well, but the menu prices were more expensive than on their web site and we incurred a 10% service charge which we had not expected. However, the food and the service was very good and we will no doubt return in the future.
