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.

I have been a customer of this restaurant for 20 years and never had a problem but on the 31 of August I went with my family to eat there. Everything was going smoothly until the puddings and coffees. The waiter poured all the milk over the back of my husband. He apologize but no one came to help him to clean out. But that was not the end. After the incident the manager came to tell us, in a very rude way, that we had to leave because the restaurant was closed and that we shouldn't complain about the incident because we had a GOOD SERVICE and a good discount (it was the last day of the "Eat out help out" offer). I was very upset and disappointed with the manners of this person who should be there to help customers. At the end of the day we are the customers and we pay for a good service. Next day I came back to talk with the owner and make an official complaint. He apologize for what had happened but he excused his employees saying that they were very tired because it was a long and busy weekend and that they had been working long hours. I totally understand that but that doesn't mean they have the right to treat customers that way. It not the customer's fault. I went there to get a good food and good service. I didn't get it. Is a shame because food is good. I'm not coming back again....

Top notch food, service and price.
We all ate a wonderful meal at this restaurant, we all had the special offer menu which was varied and delicious.
I had sea bass for main which melted in the mouth. My wife and friends were silent as we ate which meant food was great.
There is a really friendly atmosphere, Covid safe with the waiting staff attentive and happy.
Definitely go to this restaurant for a meal if you like Italian food.

Fantastic covid hygiene in place. Felt very safe
A little noisy, but that's because it was busy

We had the best meal of our trip at this restaurant. We had the two course meal for £11.30 each.I had the gluten free spaghetti bolognaise and my husband had the spaghetti milanaise. Then we both had the creme caramel. Pleasant and efficient service and good atmosphere. Easy to park in the evening. Seems a very popular restaurant. Pretty full for a Wednesday evening.
They have a gluten free menu on the back of the normal menu.

Nice pasta and risotto enjoyed by all. 4-year-old loved his pasta a lot. Portion was huge. Waitress gave me a big handful of chocolates for the child when we were leaving!

Good food and welcoming staff. The restaurant shares facilities with its sister restaurant (which may be the more upmarket one) next door. Our family group of 6 were comfortable this side. Starters were decent, the separate mains of fish and of chicken were nice, the pizzas were tops.

The welcome was warm we were shown to our table social distanced from all the other tables , easy to read menus and not a lot of time once you've ordered to when you receive your starters ,The food was excellent but we did check the bill as somebody had put an extra bottle of wine which we didn't have , all in all excellent food and friendly service .

We go to this restaurant every time we visit Eastbourne, and this restaurant never disappoints!
Food and atmosphere is typical of a good Italian restaurant. We were served very quickly despite the fact that we visited on a Tuesday night during the governments eat out scheme. Staff very friendly. Will definitely go back next year.

We pre booked this restaurant before visiting Eastbourne. When we arrived it was chaos. They were certainly cramming everyone into the restaurant. No socially distancing at all. Felt quite unsafe.
Shame as the food was really good and the service was excellent.

Order take out pizza. Fresh and tasty, thin base. Whilst waiting, food coming out of kitchen looked good. Clean and simple. Would recommend!

Having eaten in Pomodoro e Mozzarella for many years the food and service has always been outstanding. All of the staff are very pleasant and accommodating.
The excellent service is paired with great authentic Italian food. With an extensive menu to suit a wide range of preferences, the portions are generous and the food is always delicious!
Luca and his team always work above and beyond to provide a lively, authentic Italian meal, great for any occasion.

I love both this restaurant and the sister one attached La Loco da del Duca. Excellent service, excellent food, excellent prices. Staff are so friendly and helpful, helpful, nothing is too much trouble. I visit both these restaurants 2/3 times a month and had takeaways as soon as they were able to offer this service. My family always go there when they come to visit.

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel. Lots of variety on the menu and all well priced. Excellent freshly prepared food, generous portions and great service.

I visited the restaurant on a day trip in Eastbourne and I made a great lunch spot choice! It was busy and I can see why it‘s popular with locals.
There’s so much fantastic choices on the menu and I went for the salmon tagliatelle. Huge portion, fresh pasta, plenty salmon - absolutely delicious. Other food I saw going to other tables including pizza looked amazing too. The restaurant is spacious and bright and prices are reasonable. Service was very good overall, could be a little friendlier.

Was recommended by our local taxi driver and didn't disappoint. I think we came just before lunch service ended so was a bit rushed. The main came out immediately after the starter but staff were friendly once we'd ordered and settled. Moules Mariniere was yummy.

Excellent meal, service was a little rushed, they had a lot of people just walking in expecting a table. If you are in the area and you like Italian food, book and go.

5 of us went to eat here last night. We were apprehensive after lockdown but couldn't have felt safer and happier. All perfect and food amazing! Thank you all very much!

We have eaten here on many occasions and it never disappoints. The food is always freshly cooked and hot, the staff friendly and helpful and the restaurant clean and welcoming. Today all staff wore masks and there was plenty of hand sanitiser available if required. Movable screens in operation if table layouts had to be changed. One way in and another way out. Tables well spaced and cleaned after use. Well done to the team who worked hard to make everyone feel safe and comfortable.
