We have used this small chain in Burgess Hill from time to time and happened to be in Hove for dinner. This branch is much bigger and on a wednesday night relatively quiet. The owner was welcoming and the food very good Italian fare with a broad wine list. Sadly they don't offer veal at this location, a shame! We... More

My partner and I visited this restaurant after seeing a 2 for 1 offer promoted online. We called and made it clear we wanted to use the offer - no problem, said the lady on the phone. The serving staff were friendly and the food was nice enough, but when it came to paying the manager told us that they... More

Thank you very much for your review which is very important for us. I am afraid the promotion you tried to use on last SATURDAY NIGHT is only available on lunch times. PLEASE before you come in my restaurant and start make mess and complain and call me rude READ THE PROMOTION DETAILS. THANK YOU. More

Popped in here for the lunchtime deal menu - both of us had a tasty main ( pizza/spaghetti) with a drink each then I had coffee whilst my hubby had another beer and it came to about £18. Well fed and watered in a cosy environment. Very welcoming staff, not somewhere I'd book for a special occasion but for a... More

I don't want to go on about this too much - and my partner is is already bored of me 'going on about it' - but I simply must say how lovely the Margherita Pizza was when I dined at Buon Appetito last night (Saturday 19th Nov). No matter how sad this sounds, I've been chasing this high (!) so... More

Good lunch, excellent value but disgusted that they charged an extra 50p for more cheese on a 9 year olds pasta meal.

We were off to have a Thai or a Chinese but ended up here and in the end it was a good choice. True Italian food and I'm usually quite picky with Italian food as it's my favorite. I had beautiful bruschetta for starters ! They were truly yummy. Special mention to these marinated peppers because I've had a lot... More

3 of us came here for a late dinner last Wednesday. Staff very friendly and attentive. Pasta was very tasty (can recommend the penne with meatballs!) and the house red wine was very drinkable (we had 2 bottles!😗) Will definitely visit again.

Very friendly staff, fast but not hurried service and delicious food. Small restaurant but never feels packed in. Can't fault it.
