One of my favourite Brighton restaurants. I always know we'll get great food and service in a fun, intimate atmosphere. My only worry is that it will become too popular for me to be able to a reservation.

I love cin cin and think the food is absolutely delicious. My reservation about atmosphere is because of other customers. A woman virtually sat in my daughter's lap yesterday and was not very happy when she was asked to budge up. That slightly spoilt the atmosphere. The four stars for service were because our attention wasn't drawn to the special's board (which was behind us) and which included things we'd all have liked to eat.

My friend accidentally went to the other restaurant. The staff called the other restaurant for me. They were really nice about it, didn’t make a fuss. We had a delicious meal and really enjoyed the beautiful food. The recommendations were excellent.

The food is tasty, fresh and cooked before your very eyes. It doesn't look filling, but it is. The quality of the food and the drink is excellent. However, The amount of the wine you get for the price you pay is a bit too much. There is a Tuesday's deal. Make sure to tell them you are coming for the £10 deal to avoid surprise. The waiting service is quick, and they always make sure you have a glass of water and wine topped up. The toilet was small but had a character and was clean. The atmosphere is a bit cramped but nice. The owner is friendly and will personally greet you in. The chef will serve you the food, giving some info on what he has cooked, nowhere else in Brighton do you have such a connection and direct communication. Maybe in Silo. The overall is an exceptional dining experience, thank you so much

Delicious pasta and starters especially crab arancini. It’d be nice if they offered wine by the carafe - 125 ml glasses too small!

Wonderful food, great, friendly service and love the ambience. Recommendations of wine were spot on. I have been 3 times now, with friends and my partner. I can't recommend it enough. However as a word of warning if you like lots of space and privacy- this is not the place for you. If you want atmosphere, opportunity to people watch and see the chef hard at work (whilst still able to answer questions!) then this is the place for you.

Amazing food, staff and atmosphere! A small menu full of absolutely fantastic dishes - I would highly recommended the crab arinchino to start. If you’re drinking, definitely try some of their incredible cocktails which were mixed to perfection right in front of you. The staff were friendly and really knowledgable about the menu when we asked for wine recommendations. If you’re in Brighton and have a hankering for Italian, this is an absolute must visit.
