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.

We stumble across this restaurant with my 3 month old son. We were warmly welcomed unlike some other Hove restaurants. How lucky we're we...food and service was outstanding. Good was fresh and so tasty and superb quality. This is a cosy family run restaurant which shows in the excellent service and food. This is a must visit, highly recommended

We ate at Buon Appetito after reading about it on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. My calzone pizza was the biggest I've ever seen and tasted great as did my son's pizza. Great value for money in a lovely setting. Staff couldn't do enough to ensure we were happy with our meals.
