In 2016, David Toscano turned his series of pop-ups into this tiny, 20-seater converted from a garage, and with much of the seating around the u-shaped bar. Its lack of frills and comfort makes it a turn-off to some folks, but most rate it very highly: “super for a perfect plate of pasta, and really great fresh Italian food”.

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.

“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”.
