I've been wanting to go to this place for a while now and today I finally got to go and it was so lovely! My friend and I had 3 courses each- starter fried mozzarella with a tomato sauce, main carbonara which was amazing! so cheesy and fresh, and for dessert I had the limoncello cheesecake which was delicious.

Always a useful indicator of the strength of the cooking when someone comes in to have a meal on their own. Lovely Italian food in a friendly, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.

Reserved a table for Saturday 14th. Beautiful meal! I had bresaola to start which was amazing! The plate looked huge but actually was very light and tasty. My Partner had the calamari which was light and crispy - beautiful! For main I had the Pollo Angelino. I found the meat to be quite dry which was a shame, and the... More

Enjoyed a really lovely meal here tonight. The food was so tasty & authentic. We had a seafood platter & garlic bread to share as starters (my eyes lit up to see a good smothering of garlic on the baguette style bread). Risotto and salmon pasta were our mains, then we shared a tiramisu for dessert which was fresh &... More

We went with a group of friends and had yet another fantastic meal. We all had a variety of the dishes on the menu and every one was full of flavour and delicious! I had chicken with lime and chilli with spaghetti and it was stunning. We felt that the wine was very reasonably priced too. Th staff are great,... More

I booked this restaurant last minute and there was no problem getting a reservation, although it was busy when we arrived. The food tasted lovely and the staff were attentive and helpful, couldn't do enough for you. The desserts per staff recommendation was yummy!

A lovely restaurant in the heart of Brighton. You can expect a warm and friendly welcome from the staff. The food was pretty good but nothing to write home about. Not fresh pasta and salmon laced in garlic. I just expected some great flavours and was a little disappointed.

in response to your review: our restaurant is not in the heart of the city centre we do serve pasta with salmon but we do not add garlic, that will overpower the delicate flavour of the salmon we have been closed for the past 2 weeks for refurbishment can you please supply us with a till receipt to show that...

From the moment you walk in you feel welcome. The service is second to none. We were early diners going to see Quo at The Brighton Centre so searched for a local place to eat. Easy walk from car parks. Menu not huge but interesting. Usual Italian suspects. Food excellent though very garlicky which is to be expected. Overall cracking... More

I had the Salmod Duo and my wife had the Butterfly Pasta with Chestnut Pesto. Both meals where full of flavour and beautifully textured. The fish was cooked just right and the pasta slightly al-dente. We had the recommended wine which went very well with both dishes. All round the food and drink where excellent. The waiting staff were very... More
