My husband wanted to make my birthday special and suggested we have a takeaway meal from Pomodoro.
Although the restaurant provides home-delivery service, we decided to order the food over the phone and then pick it up ourselves - it was lovely to see Luca and some of his staff in the restaurant.I chose my favourite, Tagliatelle Mare e Monti, whilst my husband chose the Calzone. Like normal the food was absolutely delicious, piping hot, and cooked to perfection. My husband said that the sauce which accompanied his Calzone was first class. There were also 2 small pots of parmesan cheese enclosed with our order!
Thank you Pomodoro for helping me celebrate my birthday. We look forward to when we can come back and eat in your restaurant, rather than have a take-away.

The restaurant has always given us excellent food, well-prepared and nicely presented even when they were extremely busy around Eastbourne Tennis and Air-show time, we are happy to recommend them, they won't disappoint you.

Had the most amazing Valentine set meal delivered to our hone today. It was delivered on time, hot and as delicious as always. 2 x 3 course meal with bottle of wine for £50.00, they even put two containers of Parmesan cheese - exceptional service, delicious food and extremely good value, can’t wait for them to open properly so we can enjoy their food at the restaurant x

Stopped here on the off chance that they had room and they were so friendly and took the Covid restrictions very professionally and safely.
We have tried their restaurant next door which is also very hood but this one was excellent and so worth the £13:70 for the three courses.
Parking just outside after 18:00.
Highly recommend- Enjoy.

Fantastic menu, staff, food n ambience. Traditional Italian trattoria catering for family dynamic or Coeliac and vegan so was a a treat to not have to compromise on choice, taste and flavour! Would be back in a flash !

Recently went here for a quick evening meal. It’s a lovely local Italian, the pizza was delicious but the pasta so so..
The service could have been better but maybe they were busy and their Covid plastic separators a little ‘office-like’. I would however go again!

Surprisingly busy, and for me, the tables were a little too close together, although they were covid safe, as there was a transparent screen between tables.
That said, service was good, and the food was excellent.

We visited here on Tuesday. The food was lovely with very generous portions, very covid safe with partitions up. Excellent value and 20% off Monday-Thursday. The only slight niggle was they charged £3.40 for three small pieces of garlic bread, but other than that everything was perfect.

Was recommended to eat here by the owner of the guesthouse we stayed and they even booked the table for us.
A very busy Friday night even in these Coronavirus times always a sign of a good restaurant.
The layout has been set out with plastic dividing screens between all tables to adhere to social distancing and lots of cleaning going on. The servers all wear face masks or shields and gloves. There’s also a one way system in place. Taking the prevention measures seriously.
Back to the meal itself prompt and attentive service by the staff a good selection on the menu and variety of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks including mock tails and cock tails.
The meals we had were flavoursome and just a nice manageable portion apart from the desert which was huge! Great value too. Probably one of the best Italian meals I’ve eaten outside Italy.
The atmosphere was buzzing and busy which added to the ambiance.
Worth checking out or it’s sister restaurant next door. Street parking available close by and is accessible for those less mobile.
All in all a great experience.

I have eaten here twice in the last couple of weeks and both times had lovely food and great service. The first time was a family birthday and they made a nice occasion allowing us to bring a cake and everyone singing. I had the special menu as it was a weekday. Bruschetta and Sea bass it was delicious. Second time I had the aubergine tomato dish from the starter menu as a main and a lovely rocket salad in a little bowl made of strips of a cucumber. Really charming! Good service with screens in between tables. Very good value.

Excellent take away delivery service. Our food was delivered quickly after ordering, allowing for the distance. We all enjoyed our meal and would use this service again. Such a pity we are unable to visit the restaurant at the moment.

An oasis. Great Italian food in a seaside town. Couldn't fault it well worth a visit. A vast menu and the set lunch at £11 was a very wise choice. Will definitely come again when we are in Eastbourne.

We stayed in the Premier Inn just outside the town center and not wanting to eat at The Mill adjoining the hotel, as it looked like a doss house and had food similar to a 1970's works canteen, we searched for a restaurant in Eastbourne. What a great find. Fantastic food, excellent service, Covid 19 regulations carried out to perfection. Well done & thanks for a very enjoyable evening meal.

Delicious food. Reasonably priced set menu. The staff were friendly and professional and the covid screens were in place between tables. Felt safe and thoroughly enjoyed our 2 course meals. Would return, highly recommend.

After a relaxing night away we met up with our local friends and booked a table for the four of us. We had a delicious lunch. I can recommend Insalata Nizzarda which was tasty and beautifully presented. The Scallopina alla Millanese was well cooked tasty and generous in size. Our pasta was al dente and filling. All our desserts were typically Italian. I can highly recommend the Tiramisu and fruit salad or maybe the Creme Caramel. We were all very pleased to see that Covid19 precautions were in place with screens between tables. All waiters wore masks. This made us feel very comfortable.
