Summary

A visit to this tiny ex-garage is “just fantastic fun”“You sit at a bar up close and personal with other diners and enjoy the finest antipasti and pasta Brighton has to offer, prepared and cooked right in front of you”. Newly sporting a Bib Gourmand, it also spawned a Hove spin-off on Western Road in January 2018, with a larger kitchen and more ambitious menu.

Summary

“Sit on stools around the U-shaped bar and watch as the team slice, chop and cook simple and delicious rustic Italian food” at this “small and slightly industrial side street venue” (in a former garage) – a “very welcome change from the pile-it-high and sell-it-cheap pizza and pasta joints which are the norm locally”.

"Yet another "stools around the bar" joint charging proper restaurant prices for unexceptional food and wine consumed in considerable discomfort."

"Amazing Italian food and a nice relaxed atmosphere. The staff were attentive and friendly. This is our goto restaurant when we visit Brighton. The food is a cut above ALL other Italian eateries in the Brighton area, and the small plates are a great option to choose if you want a nice selection of the freshly cooked wonderful cuisine of Cin Cin in Brighton."
