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.

The pizzas here are really some of the best- really hit the spot. Just what we wanted before going to the cinema with a glass of wine and a starter

1st time ventured and very good experience. Had just opened up-very pleasant dining room menu very extensive-chose 2 staple dishes-lasagna & bolognese-both home made. Not long we were duly served and both excellent-plus plates were hot-very good sign. Managed to then find room for tiramisu-again...perfect texture. When more time available will go back again-very good find!!More

This restaurant offer’s consistently good food and service. Warmly greeted by the owner, great choice of food, wine and beer. The food is absolutely delicious, beautiful bolognaise and decent sized pizzas. I wouldn’t go anywhere else in Eastbourne for high quality Italian food. The ladies...of our group tonight were presented with a Christmas card and Italian amaretti biscuits! - what a lovely touch!More

My partner and I visited here, we were very disappointed with the whole experience. My partner manages a Michelin Star restaurant and the service, food and attitude was just completely unacceptable. We left the restaurant upset, and feeling sick. We were a walk in booking...over the weekend, the restaurant was completely apart from 1 table when we arrived and we were made to feel like we were an inconvenience by the front of owner/chef, he even refused another walk in when we were sat down, stating they had room for pizza only. There was a lovely young Italian waitress who was trying to serve us but the owner/chef kept taking over and was quite frankly being rude to the staff and us. My partner ordered a Negroni for drinks, and I ordered a non-alcoholic beer. The Negroni tasted diluted and pre-made, which is not what you expect for a restaurant of this standard, particularly when the restaurant is quiet. We got a mixture of starters, the bruchetta, parmigiana balls and meat Arincini. The Bruchetta was burnt and dry just some chargrilled bread with some tomatoes the parmigiana balls were flavourless and overcooked. The arincini was actually okay. For mains I have the Risotto Gamberetie E Zucchine, it was tasteless and watery, reminded me of rice pudding. Plus the prawns had no flavour and the whole meal did not taste right. My partner had the the Paccheri Ai Frutti Di Mare, the pasta did not taste home-made and the seafood was frozen and bland, and the dish was overly fishy and did not taste right. The dish had no flavour and was not edible. We both only had a few bites to eat of each main dish. We were made to feel uncomfortable to say much about the dishes as the owner kept speaking about us whilst we were sat down. My partner asked for the dishes to be packed as we felt really uncomfortable in saying. The nice Italian waitress came to us after the dishes were taken away, she spoke to me discreetly about not liking the meals, I told her it was not nice and I felt uncomfortable saying, she apologised and was really lovely about it. She went and spoke to the owner/chef about us but he responded to her quite angrily then came over to us to take payment, making us feel even more uncomfortable. They also charged a service fee which seemed to be more money than necessary. Honestly the whole experience was just really upsetting and would not recommend at all.More

As my partner already wrote a review, I decided to join her. As an exec. manager of a Michelin star restaurant, I don’t recommend this place. The chef (owner) is greedy and his service is absolutely unacceptable . The food we received was old, possibly...reheated in the oven. Pasta and Risotto had no taste and were absolutely blunt. I love italian food but if you respect yourself as a chef you must not send out food like this to the customers. At the end of our visit he (the owner) was aware of the situation as the server told him. I guess he declined to deal with the situation and charged us fully. Also, £10 service that he added to the bill (he probably takes it home). I had a really bad day and only wanted to enjoy some of my favourites but the day ruined completely. I didn’t want to argue so we just left. All I can say, if you really love italian food, there are much better places than this. I would love to get my £68 refund but obviously it’s not possible.More

We've wanted to visit here for a while but we always have our dog with us which makes it tricky. We visited for lunch and all four of us had a delicious meal, by far the best we've had in Eastbourne. Fresh and tasty authentic...Italian cooking and wonderful friendly staff. We can't wait to visit again. Thank you!More
