Italian cuisine is one of the most popular cuisines in the world and, therefore, one of the most imitated and sometimes exposed to really creative (but not so traditional) replica.
We took our time to review the most authentic Italian restaurants in Brighton and give you a list where the only surprise will be up to 50% discount on your bill, if booking your table through BigDish app.
Historically placed in the heart of Brighton, Zafferelli has been recently re-acquired and the staff have been working on redesigning and rebranding this local venue that had previously started to fade away into the background.
Brand new seats outside, with a heated lamps terrace and blankets to warm up your festive season. Brand new chefs inside and a menu based on Italian grandma’s recipes created using the best quality suppliers and aiming to be organic where possible.
If you are familiar with the name but you want to test its new concept of Italian cuisine, visit the new Zafferelli for the authenticity feel and, at the same time, the vibrant and modern atmosphere.
