“A disappointing meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

We had a disappointing evening at this restaurant.The service was very friendly but our meal was poor and not as described on the menu.The main course was not finished by all of us.I am afraid we shall not be returning.

Wonderful food with service to match.
A lovely personal evening. Would definitely revisit ahead of the usual Italian chains.

“A special find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

Always friendly and welcoming. So good to have a restaurant with good Italian food that isn't part of a chain. However, can get a bit cold in there and the music choice can be annoying.
Well worth a visit, though.

“Traditional Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

I visited Novecento restaurtant and was very pleased with both the food and the service. However it is a very small restaurant so I recommend to book a table.

“Fantastic!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013

I just love this restaurant...it's fantastic!When we eat out in Eastbourne we just go to this restaurant.Andrea the owner is always so friendly and welcoming and the chef Barbara's food is amazing.I absolutely love the mussels in tomato sauce....this is a must!Barbara's tomato sauce is the best I've ever tasted in my life.My boyfriend is Italian and he said her tomato sauce is better than his grandmother's.My boyfriend had pasta with beef fillets in tomato sauce and it was very tasty.I had veal with lemon sauce and loved it.Can't wait to go back there again!:)
