My husband along with myself & our twin granddaughters had a very nice meal here. My husband had the garlic funghi starter & the rest of us had a platter of garlic bread. This was followed by my husband having the meatballs, 1 twin having the chicken carbonara, the other twin had Margarita pizza while I had the lasagne. All... More

Nice and friendly place. Can get a bit loud at times, but there is a smaller room to eat. Very accommodating for certain needs. Book as it gets busy at weekends

It was very small when it first opened and has expanded into a large restaurant. However it has not lost the atmosphere and the fantastic food. All priced at a great... More

We are so lucky to live on Sovereign Harbour in Eastbourne, it's a beautiful place especially with great restaurants on our doorstep as good as ours. There are a few great Italian restaurants in the town, but Simply Italian is the best restaurant in my opinion. I love the friendly staff, always smiling and welcoming. But most of all the... More

There were six of us for Sunday lunch, good job we booked, it was quite crowded. When the food was served it became obvious why it was so popular. Most of our party had various pastas, I had chicken with a typical Italian sauce, delicious. Well worth looking at their "specials" board. Apart from making pretty decent cars Italians ere... More

Eaten here many times as live nearby. Our first choice is opposite at Pablo's but they were full, interestingly Simply Italian weren't that busy which speaks for itself? Our chicken dish was tasteless, for an Italian restaurant they were very mean with any garlic or flavour. No one came to ask if we wanted any more drinks or if everything... More

One of our favourite places to lunch on the South Coast. We had a delicious mushroom starter, followed by penne with chicken. Impressed that all pasta was offered gluten free. Service and attention was first class. Highly recommended *****
