Great atmosphere and lovely staff. Wine list is great and the platters are good. But advertises as aperitivo and while the concept is good it fell short of the real Italian experience. Would def go back though. For the wine and the great atmosphere.

Popped in for lunch and a glass or two of wine. The staff are very welcoming, efficient and friendly.

Good selection of food, tasty platter of meats and cheeses. Definitely not what you normally find on West Street, a great addition. Also a good selection of quality wines with something for everyone!

I too am confused about how a new restaurant hits the number 1 spot ( number 2 at the moment having been knocked off pole by an American style coffee shop that used to be in Kemp Town and confused me even more !)
However apart from some sour grapes by a Brighton restaurant owner who didnt like the decor ???????? ( its nice by the way ) the reviews are amazing and here is why.
Excellent service, simple good quality food , wines that have a story and are well priced, no ridiculous surcharge for drinking by the glass ( altho 125 price is a bit naughty now i think of it )
Good ambiance
Huge surprise being on West Street
Brighton very short on wine bars
Looking forward to returning - still not sure it should be Number1 when we have places like The Set & 64 Degrees but its bloody good at what it does and hence all the excellent reviews - the rest i guess is the Trip Advisor algorithms .
Did i mention the lovely manager - so good.

Dear Steve,

I would like to thank you very much for your kind review and for taking our defence against what had all the signs of a premeditated negative review from a potential competitor. I agree with all your points, including the fact that it is surprising that a new restaurants hits #1 on Tripadvisor and that there are surely other places that would probably deserve that spot. It is definitely a result of the Tripadvisor algoritm, which unfortunately we had no involvement in the design of :). The other element to consider is that tripadvisor is a platform where people recommend or not to visit a specific place. Being #1 on the platform should not suggest that it is the best place in the category. I think Michelin Stars and other similar organisations have that purpose. My interpretation of a high score on Tripadvisor is that we are making a good work with the humble means we have, and that is undoubtedly all merit of the great staff we have here. So, of course, I also agree on your point about our lovely manager!

Thanks again and we look forward to welcome you again.

Couldn't fault at all, having only recently acquired a taste for cured meats and cheese we ordered the Grande which I though might be out of my comfort zone a little, hope it was fantastic and can't wait to come back !!
