Critics Review
Italian food - done properly!
9/10
Edendum (from the Latin, ‘eating’) is a brand new Italian bistro on East Street, taking up residency in the space formally occupied by Indian Summer. Comprising an Italian restaurant, café and food shop, Edendum has a lot to offer; the time-honoured culinary tradition of Northern Italy with food to enjoy at any time of day. We are here to sample what their evening menu has to offer. It’s a lovely, authentic and cosy place, with wall-to-wall food and wine on display to whet your appetite. We are greeted by Diego, who is passionate about what Edendum is about. He has so much to say about the produce on sale – all shipped in from Italy, the wine – all Italian of course, and the dishes on their small but thoughtful menu – changing every two weeks to keep things interesting. Everything they sell and use in their cooking is as authentic as it comes, sourcing everything from small Italian producers to guarantee quality. He tells us of the ‘all natural produce’ that goes into their dishes - ‘just like [his] grandma used to make’. He speaks enthusiastically about why they wanted to open in Brighton; he clearly has a passion for the city and admires our love of quality, local produce and our support for independent restaurants. At Edendum nothing is frozen, everything is made fresh, even the croissants, which he comments is no mean feat. These, along with their bread (proofed for 48 hours to aid digestion) and wonderful looking cakes, are made downstairs in Edendum’s ‘small factory’...

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with smiling faces and wonderfully-friendly staff. It was an exceptional service throughout the evening, amazing ambience, and delicious real-Italian food. Myself and my family thoroughly enjoyed our first visit, and will most definitely be returning. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Food was ok. Pizza was nice. Wasn't offered dessert as restaurant got busy and staff were spread over many tables. Didnt like the process of ordering that was drawn on the walls. Made it seem like an Italian Nando's.

We went for the tagliatelle and sea food, pastas were good enough but the portions were really small for a 15£ dish and the seafood was just ok (probably frozen but we were not expecting something else). In a nutshell, restaurant was ok but would probably not recommended it to a friend.

I am a regular customer and we booked a table for 8 people last Saturday. I must say that my friends were very impressed with the food and the presentation. The service was good but it could be a bit better ( attention to details ) specially because wasn't very busy on that particular saturday.

Excellent restaurant for really well presented dishes with good quality food. They did have the usual pizza and pasta options for an Italian restaurant but offer so much more - we had lots of good seafood. Dessert was lovely too. Staff were awesome - very attentive while still remaining very professional. Can't recommend the place enough. Decor and ambience is lovely at night for adults / couples enjoying a night out together while the daytime I believe my 9 year old might like to try it out for the pizza. Great find and they deserve the awards they've achieved. We'll be returning!!!!

The steak was delicious and the pizza dough amazing. Great cocktails too. The staff were great and despite a small glitch with our order did all they could to make it up to us. Desserts slightly disappointing though.

The service was fantastic, couldn't fault it. The waiters made a fuss of my children which was lovely. The food was delicious, I love Ridgeview so was very pleased when I saw this was available on the menu.

Food was great. We really enjoyed our meal, however there wasn't much of it. We had the seafood pasta and finished it within five minutes. There was enough seafood, but not enough pasta. Perhaps, take this into consideration for future reference. Despite this, service and atmosphere was great.

We found this restaurant from reviews in the FT. We love Italian food so booked here on a Sunday night. The staff were superb, very friendly, attentive but the food was obviously freshly prepared to order and it was amazing. I have eaten Tirimisu so often and even made it myself many times but this was the best ever. A lovely evening and a gem of a find.
