This is everything one could want from an Italian restaurant. Good service, wide ranging menu, reasonable prices, good wine list, everything freshly cooked. I had veal in mushroom sauce which was very tender and cooked to order. Home made Tiramisu. The restaurant was very busy on a Tuesday evening in January so essential to book. Every town should have a... More

My wife and I dined there for the "umpteenth" time. As always needed to book but had a great meal and friendly service. Food great and I particularly enjoyed the gigantic fish soup. I often have melanzane as starter but need to be hungry as portion large. "Mine host" always comes to speak to us, and we often receive a... More

Visited with my wife and a friend who was treating us to lunch. We decided to have the set menu which was a very reasonable price for either 2 or 3 courses. I started with the fried liver - it was so good. Main course was baby dover sole and again was delicious. We all had dessert and a complimentary... More

Had a meal here on the Saturday night of our weekend stay in Eastbourne. We had not booked, but were quickly accommodated. The staff were all so friendly and helpful and the food was delicious with very generous portion sizes! The limoncello frozen shot at the end of the meal was the best I've ever had! I'd recommend to order... More

The entry doors are very heavy to open. It is pleasantly decorated but some tables are very close together, especially if you are a table for two. I went before Christmas and had the Christmas menu. The bread and olives provided to start were generous but they also fill you up. I had mussels followed by seabass. Well cooked and... More

We are Eastbourne residents that moved here from South London around 13 years ago, at first we struggled to find restaurants that were anywhere close to the standard of London Restaurants, but in time we have come across some gems, and this is probably the "best of the best" the staff are very attentive, and cant do enough for you,...

A group of five of us enjoyed an excellent lunch at a very reasonable price. The food was very well presented and the menu was varied enough to accomodate most tastes.The service was exceptional, with the owner coming across to greet us and enquire whether we enjoyed the lunch. I am looking forward to sampling the less restricted lunchtime menu... More
