We arrived on a brisk windy evening with no booking, but was welcomed by the very hospitable hosts and seated immediately. Very attentive staff and amazingly flavoured starters and mains followed... could not fault it in any way.. would love to return..

During a weekend in Brighton I fancied some proper Italian food. The food was excellent, pizza cooked in a wood fire oven, good wine and friendly staff. The only downfalls were the toilette not very pleasant.

Didn't see any gluten free options openly available. My daughters gluten free so you have my sympathy. Worth a phone call though

Plenty of pasta dishes, but also catering for meat and fish eaters. Really good olives, and the house wine is very drinkable. Family run and reasonably priced. Enjoy
