All the staff are really friendly and chatty and its a very cute Italian style layout inside. we went in the summer on a hot evening and sat in the lovely outside area,... More

Leo and the team are great. It's an institution! Uncomplicated and bustling it's simple - we love the vibes and the pizzas! Deffo try the limoncello at the end of a meal and his homemade gelato

I was dubious about coming here but gave it a go as my friends suggested it for our night out. It's a quirky little place and it is very cosy so you're quite close to other diners but for a friendly get together it's great. The pizzas were really good. I had a florentina, only downside was when we asked... More

Delicious, simple food and friendly service. The restaurant is busy, cosy and loud! A fabulous evening of authentic, hearty Italian fare.

I live on the other side of Brighton but will definitely always return here for Pizza! The best piza I've ever eaten and the price is amazing! The staff are helpful, fun and polite. We had a great dinner here. Love that it's an old garage, and they make their own home made ice cream!

Proper thin & crispy Italian pizza. If you prefer the thick, doughy, sourdough overloaded nonsense then don't go here. If you have spent time in Italy eating proper, thin, simple pizzas then this is for you. I ordered a prosciutto, with extra gorgonzola & anchovies, the chef said he would't do it with anchovies, in that very Italian way of... More

Tasty and large pizzas, with great moisture. My friend wanted to customise her pizza and they were quite limiting and forgot to add our drinks on initially, but delicious and a great little venue for one of the best pizzas in Brighton

We went there with a small group on a Friday night as a pre-cinema dinner. Lovely service, real Italian pizza, great atmosphere, and reasonable prices. Definitely need to go back as I want to try the homemade gelati.

no pretensions - with good food and service. Rating would have been excellent except that the filling is a little "wet" in the middle so this made the pizza too soggy and difficult to hold when trying to eat.
