I enjoy the food here. It may be a touch expensive but it tries to present an authentic Italian bistro feel. The staff are always courteous and efficient. The food is flavoursome and freshly prepared.

Called in while visiting Chichester and found everything much better than we expected. Very good service, wine and food in very good surroundings with loads of natural light. Would certainly call in for lunch when next in Chichester

The meal we had was fantastic! The service was amazing! We had the Manager Michelle serve us and helped suggesting various dishes. He defiantly knew the menu back to front! Would recommended ASK Chichester to any couple/family or casual diner!

Hi! Thanks for your query. The front entrance to the restaurant has steps but the back doors have a flat entrance, these aren't always open so best to call ahead . 01243775040. Many thanks
