Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Intimate cafe, the food was fresh and fantastic. Excellent coffee too. We bought some cake to go and it was lovely. We had high expectations after reading good reviews and it was worth the visit.

Guys, really a pleasant and amazing surprise in the middle of Portland Rd. Warm and friendly welcome. Tastefully decorated, well-kept rooms. Fantastic Sicilian ceramics and colors. A double and comfortable covered space. The food of excellent quality and preparation. Delicious! I tasted different products and...the pleasure was immense. From coffee, to meat sandwich, to quiche, to tiramisu. Environment for couples, families and friends. the external part is also cared for and well maintained. At the top of my preferences now. Seeing is believing. Ciao for now!More

We booked Mediterraneo for their Sicilian Wine Tasting Evening and was not disappointed! Run by an Italian husband and wife you will only eat authentic Sicilian food here. The menu doesn't change but why change something that is perfect! Each wine was paired exceptionally with...each course and the owner explained the history of the wine and each region the wines came from. Having travelled to most of Italy (apart from Sicily) it was interesting to see how Italian food varies in each region, stepping inside I was instantly reminded of being back in Italy. Really enjoyed the Conchiglione Funghi, Ricotta e Noci ! The service is exceptional and I would highly recommend if you want authentic Sicilian food and wine.More

Intimate and charming with endearing personality, this family run cafe is our new favourite stop for lunch in all Brighton and Hove. Very reasonably priced for food that is the perfect balance of down-to-earth and sophisticated. You have to try one of the cakes too....Hove's gain is Sicily's loss :)More
