“A rare treat in Brighton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

One of the few family owned and run Italian restaurants in Brighton. Exceptionally friendly. Food is very good and not expensive. The interior of the restaurant is bright and cheery, if a tiny bit dated, but the focus is on honest italian fayre and friendly welcoming service. A further plus is there is a bigger room downstairs where they accommodate large groups, so intimate diners don't get interrupted.

i had completely forgotten about this restaurant until recently when a mate suggested a quick lunch there. I have to say that the service and food was excellent. The pasta was fresh and tasty and the waiter was very attentive. Coffee was also great
