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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We came for a family evening meal with my in-laws over from Argentina. We live in Hangleton and have driven past this place so many times without giving it another thought. When looking for a nice Italian restaurant in Trip Advisor, I thought I’d follow...the reviews and taken a chance. So glad I did. Service was great and the food excellent. I ordered rhe seafood linguine, might be the best one I’ve been had. Absolutely delicious!More

Such a warm welcome. Food was exceptional. I had the sea bass and my wife the seafood risotto. We've never been disappointed and always look forward to visiting.

This is my new favourite restaurant- I’ve been twice now and both times the welcome, the meal and the wine have been truly exceptional. I tried the filet steak and sea bass, whilst friends raved about the pasta dishes too…. Some fabulous wines on the...menu and to top it off, the friendliest welcome and great service… I dont want to say too much more for fear of not being able to get a table next time I want to go there!!More

If there is a finer Italian restaurant in Brighton and Hove I have not found it. The service, food and host gave a true friendly Italian experience. All three courses hit the spot and were of equal fine quality. A fine and recommended dining experience...with a lovely relaxed atmosphere.More

Yet another fantastic meal at Colosseo...the Parmigiana Di Melanzana for starters was amazing. I've had it elsewhere before, but this was in a different league & I'll definitely be having it again!! I had spaghetti with meatballs for my main & the portion size is...generous, but very tasty. My mum had the salmon special for her main & she said it was very nice & just the right amount. Billy & his small team work wonders & he has a lot of regulars who he greets by name....he must have a good memory! Highly Recommended, but call to book as they get very busy & you wouldn't want to be disappointed.More

During our visit to Hove for Valentine’s Day, we had a recommendation to dine at the Colosseo and we were not disappointed. We were greeted as long absent friends and enjoyed a most amazing experience. All the staff were most attentive and friendly, the food...was spectacular, the ambience and humour, unique. Our only regret is that we don’t live in the area but we plan on making future visits to Hove, if only to relive that experience.More
