Service was unbearably slow, the menu was all scribbled over when we got it and our order was incorrect when brought to us, however this was probably due to the fact you couldn't hear anything as it was far too noisy and couldn't hear my family speak. Will absolutely not be returning and I highly encourage others to do the... More

As a special treat we were recommended Jamie's Italian - the food was delicious. We had a Pizza and a small Classic Super Foods Salad to share, an apple juice and glass of wine, this cost us £40.00, including a tip.. Not cheap! The service was acceptable, although could have been more attentive. To be honest, it was a fun... More

Very unhappy with visit, especially as I visit this restaurant in Brighton all the time & love it there. Restaurant very cold, had to put a fleece on. Overcharged on our bill and server not too happy to have to sort this out. Bad value for money and the waiting times were ridiculous

We arrived early evening and it wasn't busy but if you were to judge it by the service you would have thought it was. The food was nice and would score 4 stars and I would have come back another time. However where do I begin with the service which just about gets 2 stars, hence the rating of 3.... More

Hadn't been here for about a year as we had moved from the area. We had enjoyed previous visits. Both myself and my wife had the oxtail lasagne. It was a Saturday afternoon and we were very hungry. The food arrived in large earthenware bowls. The tops of both lasagnes were slightly burnt which gave a bitter taste. The lasagne... More

Definitely not the best Italian food we've ever had! The place it's self is very canteen'ish so to speak!and the menu is pretty limited. Kind of expected more!!

Hi there, So sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. The restaurant style is quite casual which we appreciate isn't to everyone's taste. With regards to the menu 11 main courses, 12 pastas, 6 pizzas and a large selection of anti pasti and sharing plates we feel is quite a large selection when insuring that all the food is fresh...

Needed somewhere to eat before seeing Russell Kane at the theatre royal. Been several times before and always enjoyed. This time was no different, the meal was good and the staff helpful and friendly. Always a safe bet for a decent meal if not amazing.
