We booked on the advice of TripAdvisor and were very pleased with the results.

We arrived a little early and were offered a chance to enjoy a drink at the tables outside or a table downstairs. As it was a warm evening, downstairs didn't appeal. We were called in early to a warm table inside - the pizza oven was a few yards away.

While this sounds negative, the ambience made up for any problems: the staff were attentive and friendly, and the food was fantastic. We ordered veal and steak, but the table next to us had gone for the home-made pizzas, and they looked superb. - Next time in Brighton: choose the pizzas -. The service was discrete: the staff left alone the bottle we had in an ice bucket, whereas in other restaurants they come up and offer you another glass.

All in all, next time we are in Brighton, this is where we'll be.

It's taken me a while to write this review, but this restaurant has left a lasting impression on myself and my partner. The food was delicious, couldn't fault the food, service, or atmosphere. Good honest Italian food will definitely be coming back whenever I am in Brighton!!!!

Last night 12 people (6 couples) went to dinner at this wonderful restaurant. we were made very welcome & taken straight to our table, our service was wonderful too, nothing was too much trouble. Everyone's food was delicious. We was celebrating a 25th wedding anniversary & everyone had nothing but praise & happy & full bellies. Thank you

Stayed in a hotel about 400 yards away and were just passing and called in on the chance of obtaining a table. Luckily they had a table. We shared a stater of whitebait and glad we didn't order for two as it was more than enough. My wife had a simple lasagna and i had the grilled tuna which was very fresh and tasty. Good restaurant well worth a visit.

Staying just across the road to this restaurant, we were lazy and didn't go searching for anywhere else on our first evening staying in Brighton. I'm so glad we didn't! It is so good, we returned the next night too.

Wonderful quality and generous portions, so much so, on our second visit, we shared the starter and I had a small salad for the main. Fresh, piquant flavours, real quality. Good service from efficient, friendly staff.

I highly recommend this restaurant.
