Italian-Australian ex-lawyer David Toscano’s “great take on Italian food” with “super sharing plates” has won a legion of admirers, including Marina O’Loughlin of the Sunday Times. Popularity (and Covid) meant he outgrew his original tiny site in Brighton’s Vine Street, but the newer Hove venue “has really upped its game”. A London spinoff opened in Fitzrovia in May 2021.

“Brighton & Hove’s top Italian” – David Toscano’s larger (35-seat) Hove spin-off is in a similar vein to his Brighton original, but generates a shade more enthusiasm. “Inventive and delicious dishes on an Italian theme are made from local produce” and are matched with some good wines.

"RIP Vine Street, but Hove is really hitting a strong standard now. By a very long way the best Italian food in Brighton. And always fun to sit at the counter."
