I visited in a February afternoon at 3pm and thought that it wouldn't be terribly busy. So pleased our table was booked. There was a constant stream of people waiting for tables. The menu is varied with some favourites, the wine list was extensive, to be honest probably too big. The food & wine was great, the staff were attentive... More

Having visited Donatello restaurant for many years with many enjoyable moments and good memories about 2 years ago we swopped to Pinocchio's . Pinocchio's is smaller and more intimate, we have spent many family Birthday's, Mother's days, Father's days and Christmas Eve' here. I feel that as the restaurant is smaller, the quality of the food is better, the service... More

You must eat here , the food is of excellent quality and quantity. The service is on point. My congratulations to the the chefs who provide the most scrumptious of steaming hot dishes. To the owner thank you , your prices are excellent I don't know how you do it but please continue.

Lovely pasta lunch. The restaurant was very busy and the staff were excellent. Rushing around making sure people weren't waiting to long for their food. I mentioned that we were going to the theatre. The waitress took our order with a smile and the food was bought to us very quickly. We have eaten here before and will do again.

Booked this restaurant because it was very busy, this tells me the food is good. They offer 2 courses for £10.00, you can't go wrong here, the starter of garlic mushrooms is perfect outing flavour. The main is chosen from the main menu so not really restricted at all. I had a tortellini pasta dish, it was excellent, all 4... More

As a christmas present I bought tickets for my 2 children and fiends children for the theatre and wanted to get something to eat prior to the show. I knew this restaurant is on the same street as the theatre and thought I'd give it a go. Having read some of the reviews I was a bit dubious but thought... More

Pre booked for a meal prior to Theatre. We live in Brighton & well aware that many customers will just be visiting, that said whoever you are this is a friendly place offering good value & decent food, with an open kitchen. We opted for the £12.50 3 course meal. My Minestrone soup was good as was my wife's salad... More

We ate here for a group dinner after a meeting. We made reservations for a large table on the second floor, where many other groups were seated. The service was very attentive, and the waiter gave us good tips regarding what appetizers to eat (they were excellent). I ordered sea bass, which came with grilled vegetables and potatoes. The fish... More
