Hello, Unfortunately I can't give you a positive feedback as I had a food poisoning after eating at CinCin on Tuesday night. I spent an horrible night, 5 hours vomitting and being very sick. My partner who was with me was lucky not to be that sick but she wasn't feeling well either. This wasn't the first time we had a bad tummy after eating at CinCin, hence we won't come back. Just for your record, this week we had the £10 menu

Without doubt the best place to eat and drink in Brighton. Food is amazing, staff incredibly friendly, atmosphere wonderful. Hove runs the Brighton branch close, but the unique atmosphere wins in Vine street. It is well worth the trip down from London every time I visit.

First time to the Brighton restaurant. The setting is more intimate, no one is on their phones, service was great. Food is as authentic to "real Italy" as possible. No faults. If you are someone who thinks Pizza Express is like being in Italy, then Cin Cin is not the place for you ;)

5 star experience across the board. As ever...I love the open, shared dining experience. Aside from the excellent food n service, it just adds an extra dimension to your evening. We only had an hour to eat, before our seats were needed for another couple...but thanks to the super attentive service and efficiency of the kitchen we never felt rushed at any point.

I loved the concept of the restaurant. However, my major issues were: (a) the chef was not wearing a hat, and I would always appreciate clean cooking and professional environment. (B) as a fine dinning restaurant, as expected from me to have a certain dress code I would expect the same for the staff, as one of the staff was wearing a mom jeans and a tee shirt which looks very not okay with the environment. (C) the restaurant is beautiful, but the kitchen isn’t and since the kitchen is exposed to customers I would appreciate a. More neat settings. (D) the restaurant claims to have social interaction with everyone around the table and similarly to the chef and the staff, but the treatment we received was dry and cold and the U-bar idea ended up with weird eye contacts with other customers, which doesn’t correlate to what the restaurant claims to have as an atmosphere. Most importantly (E), the restaurant is a fine dining experience, I do appreciate a home made pasta and fresh ingredients but what’s served is nothing special. This, having a very ordinary food with little quantities and normal ingredients I would expect the price to correlate with such. No plate contained any special ingredient or an expensive cut of a certain meat but this was not reflected on the price. The food lacks creativity quantity and price. I wouldn’t mind paying the same amount of money if it had a creative touch. For example, the pasta with sardines it would have been more creative to maybe add pomegranate and a sprinkle of rosemary and olive oil sauce. Fine dining you would expect an atmosphere or food or creativity but the restaurant seemed to lacked all Sadly I was very excited to try this restaurant but I was flooded with disappointment
