Arrived last night, sat at our table straight away and drinks and food order taken within 10 minutes - good start. Drinks arrived quite quickly, but nothing else for 50 minutes..only ordered very basic starters so no way should of taken that long, when they finally arrived it was average! On waiting for starters a foul smell overcome the small restaurant area, a table had been served off fish..when the table complained the plates where taken and put on an empty table behind us...the smell was disgusting and to be honest put me off eating anything else! I had to ask the manager to take the plates away as was making me feel sick. When speaking to the other table it was there second fish dish attempt as the first was also off. The food was ok, the service awful! The manageress tried her best, but to be honest her staff let her down big time. Won’t be returning

Went here last night, table booked for 8.30. It was a full house.

Our starters didn't come until 9.30 but they were very quick to bring out additional bottles of wine when asked.

My partner asked for the beef fillet which was raw in the middle. We basically had to eat and run for our taxi. It was a real shame as we have had lovely meals here in the past.

The service and staff here are excellent and everyone in my party of five enjoyed their food - except me. Maybe I'm fussy but I found my very bland. Overall, based on the families reviews I would recommend but personally it wasn't a favourite of mine.

Wandering around Horsham & stumbled across Fillippos was fortunate to get a table as he was fully booked for the evening.
The waiter was very informative of all dishes which helped us enormously.
It was so nice that what was supposed to be just main meal before the long drive home
Turned into a 3 course meal with wine.
We willy definitely be returning and would fully recommend this quaint little restaurant to anyone that enjoys Italian food

We were very fortunate to get a table here last night as someone didn't turn up...they were fully booked and we could certainly see why. It was very busy but the staff certainly didn't let this prevent them from being extremely friendly, caring and keen to ensure we enjoyed our meal. We shared a calamari starter...generous portion which was great as we have found the starters in some other restaurants to be very small for the money in comparison. I had a seafood pizza and my husband a Mediterranean risotto. It is probably the best pizza I have had outside of Italy. The dough was really light and freshly prepared with large prawns, mussels and clams all clearly very freshly prepared. As soon as it arrived I could tell it was going to be delicious. We shared a home made cheesecake...also lovely with some dearest wine. Service was great throughout. Overall we really enjoyed our experience and will certainly be back.
