The restaurant had lovely views over the sea, with outdoor seating. Due to the rain; we sat inside. Food was great, as was the wine we had to accompany it. Staff were attentive and friendly. Will visit again!

This restaurant has the prime location in Brighton and the building is designed to maximise on this. A definite wow factor that makes it right for a special occasion. The food is good value, tasty and well cooked, but not quite as special as the location. Don't get me wrong you won't feel let down, but equally you won't find... More

Superb authentic Italian food. The menu is varied and delicious - something for everyone. The food all seemed freshly prepared and cooked. The hosts were lovely and made our dining experience very special. Even in the dark the view was great but I would recommend going for a summer's sunset because it would be absolutely stunning!

Always a great view even if the mist came in a spoilt the sunset! Nice friendly service, very professional. Food was nice, fish maybe a little dry/over cooked if being really fussy. Could improve food a little.

Cold windy day, in Brighton with friends this place appeared to offer an Oasis of Italian comfort on the seafront. Served quickly and politely offered advice on the menu. Food arrived quicker than expected and was delicious! Not cheap but then again not expensive either. Great, food, service and location. We will return.

Four of us travelled from Essex to see the last night of the X factor tour. Looked at the menu and decided to go for it. Had a lovely table overlooking the sea. My partner's seafood ravioli was delicious, as were the two seafood spaghetti dishes in a warming chilli sauce. The fourth of our party had a pizza and... More

Party of seven and all enjoyed very good Italian meal. Some pasta and some pizza, but all excellent. Staff very friendly and attentive. Child and Baby friendly with high chairs. Water and crisp bread topped up whenever getting low. Prices on the high side, but you get what you pay for.

Alfresco Restaurant sits next to the BA i360 in what can only be described as an Art Deco building. The food is locally sourced where possible and is always fresh. Their pasta is made daily in the kitchen below the restaurant. I can only say "I and my partner have become regulars there". My advice is give Alfresco a try,... More
