I have been to this restaurant several times over 2 decades, but was very disappointed on the last occasion, as the service and time taken to produce our meals was rather excessive - we had a reservation for 13:30 and did not leave until 16:00 - not by our choice.

Our must do when we are down in Brighton. One of the first restaurants in the Marina and definitely the best, over 20 years I think. Fresh, delicious, authentic Italian food. The staff are always attentive and I can say we have never had a bad meal or poor service here... always best to book as they can be busy... Always vibrant and lively in the most pleasant way... I can’t rate it highly enough

Walked passed hoping for a drink and ice cream at 5:30 with the restaurant at best half empty to be told ‘we are fully booked’.

Unpleasant and unwelcoming.

Being italian myself I usually avoid going to italian restaurants as often are a disappointment! However we absolutely loved this place, the food is authentic Italian genuine and fresh, big portions(that’s what we do in Italy!) and the pizza was proper “napoletana “. So if you are looking for the crispy super thin base this won’t be for you! In Naples the pizza is doughy and light!
The service was great and the staff was very friendly, especially Luigi! We liked the place so much we went back the following day!

Following the easing of Covid restrictions, you can dine on the terrace under an awning. Brighton Marina is well-served by Italian-style chains, but the food here is more distinctive and authentically Italian. I had a pizza luisa (£10.50) - ham and mushrooms on a filling base, avoiding the ubiquitous melted cheese. Service quick and friendly but no pressure to order, so we span out our first Sunday lunch out after 14 months. Cappuccino also excellent and different from the usual. I would certainly come here again.
