Harden's survey result
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”.
Cin Cin Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Excellent attentive service and some of the best food Brighton has to offer, one of my favourite restaurants! Thank you Cin Cin you never disappoint!"
"Yet another "stools around the bar" joint charging proper restaurant prices for unexceptional food and wine consumed in considerable discomfort."
