“Not # 1”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

Went here Tuesday 24th very ordinary food, we had garlic bread which the base was way too thin and swamped in butter, lasagne was OK but salad lacked imagination. Rolled pizza was 75% dough not much filling, and pasta dish was bland. Service not good and quite pricey! Its Bistro surroundings with restaurant prices. Have been to Italy many times so was disappointed as it had some good reviews.

“Forget the rest...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

There are of course, so many Italian restaurants in Hove. Some are quite good but this is the only one that I would say is actually very good. Very good indeed.

Lovely little place, friendly service and excellent food. The shared antipasti platter is highly recommended and the pizza is how you imagine pizza should REALLY taste.

Forget the rest. But book ahead as it is quite a small place.

“Brilliant little Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

Hove`s little secret restaurant. Small restaurant on Kingsway a short distance from the seafront. Very small so limited covers. Nice to sit out in the summer. Food is excellent traditional italian. Not by any stretch of the imagination the usual microwave heat up in a box stuff that you can get . Really fresh and perfect food. Definately worth a visit if you are in the area but be aware it gets very booked up so check availability. We were there on sunday and they were constantly turning people away. Just shows how good the place is.
