We had a wonderful time here as a group of friends. My friend said it was one of the best lasagnas she has ever had. Really delicious food and great value. Looking forward to a return visit.

Great authentic Italian food at reasonable prices. Not very full at lunchtime at weekends but always busy in the evenings so best to book a table for an evening visit. They often have a Groupon deal on as well so keep an eye out.

This meal out was a last minute decision but a few of us meeting up after a number of years, with one friend stating how good they had found one of the other branches. The resturant was clean, tidy and well presented. We were offered a choice of tables despite having not booked in advance. We timed our arrival well,... More

We have used this small chain in Burgess Hill from time to time and happened to be in Hove for dinner. This branch is much bigger and on a wednesday night relatively quiet. The owner was welcoming and the food very good Italian fare with a broad wine list. Sadly they don't offer veal at this location, a shame! We... More

My partner and I visited this restaurant after seeing a 2 for 1 offer promoted online. We called and made it clear we wanted to use the offer - no problem, said the lady on the phone. The serving staff were friendly and the food was nice enough, but when it came to paying the manager told us that they... More

Thank you very much for your review which is very important for us. I am afraid the promotion you tried to use on last SATURDAY NIGHT is only available on lunch times. PLEASE before you come in my restaurant and start make mess and complain and call me rude READ THE PROMOTION DETAILS. THANK YOU. More

Popped in here for the lunchtime deal menu - both of us had a tasty main ( pizza/spaghetti) with a drink each then I had coffee whilst my hubby had another beer and it came to about £18. Well fed and watered in a cosy environment. Very welcoming staff, not somewhere I'd book for a special occasion but for a... More

I don't want to go on about this too much - and my partner is is already bored of me 'going on about it' - but I simply must say how lovely the Margherita Pizza was when I dined at Buon Appetito last night (Saturday 19th Nov). No matter how sad this sounds, I've been chasing this high (!) so... More
