    Visited Friday evening with our son and his girlfriend, we booked our table online which was very easy to do. For starters we shared the Antipasto platter which was plenty for the four of us, in fact we didn’t finish it all! It contained some lovely Italian cheese and cooked meats as well as complementary olives on the side. For mains 3 of us had different pasta dishes and my husband had a salad. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were happy to adapt anything on the menu to our liking. Overall a great evening with great food and excellent customer service, we will definitely be back.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Semola - the food is classic Italian, with fresh flavour and plenty of it. And make space for the desserts, which are delish. And they’re genuinely dog friendly, which is very welcome.

    By far the best 'genuine' Italian restaurant in Brighton & Hove. Homemade Pasta and very generous servings and a great Pizza, best we have had anywhere. Great service, we will be back without a doubt. Thank you 👍

Not busy as early evening but service friendly and helpful My friend had a vegan pasta dish with mushrooms which she said was great and I had a mushroom risotto which was delicious lots of cheese and mushrooms dish was rich and creamy far to large for and took half of it home which my husband had for his lunch the next day . Really enjoyable evening would recommend

    It was a friends choice and I was so impressed with the food, I cannot stop raving about it. Thoroughly enjoyed my evening, the staff were attentive and pleasant. But the food was outstanding.

    My wife and I visited Semola for dinner. The staff (all dressed in flat caps) were very friendly, avuncular and Italian - and very accommodating. The place itself is quite brightly lit - more of a bar than a restaurant. The menus were a little grubby-looking and the food was mainly pastas and salads. The Octopus starter was OK and my main dish (fusilli arrabiata) was tasty, if a little on the small side. For the same price I can get double the portion at Marocco's or Otello's, although not as tasty. This was definitely a case of quantity over quality. Nice tiramisu and a grappa to finish. Overall, a pleasant experience - OK food, nice staff and not too expensive.

    we were looking fora quick bite to escape the rain and greyness of the interminable autumn, so 'Italian' sprang to mind. We are not great fans of pizza and pasta as these can be done adequatly at home but we judge Italian restaurants by their 'others'. It was a good start to see an anti-allergy list against each dish; luckily we are not allergic to much. Parking immediately outside, by chance, we sat in the window and traded some banter and orders with the super-friendly server. Meatballs and salad with a side of garlicky [very] pizza bread to soak up the plentiful sauce. The food arrived quickly after some complementary olives and upheld the promise, being sufficient but not too much but extremely tasty. Only one course and it was easy to pay [no waiting about] and back off into the night. Definitely on the Hove List for on the way home after work, instant evenings out and possiblya family do or two. Only open for three months and unlikely to be one of the 'here today gone tomorrow' brigade.

    I am hoping that our visit was a one off as we have always had good food and service. The restaurant wasn’t particularly busy but our orders were very slow to come out. The food could best be described as average which is unfortunate. It hasn’t put me off just hope it was a bad day for the chef.

    Friendly unobtrusive service, authentic simple tasty Italian food at reasonable prices. Great to see the fresh homemade pasta on display and the pizza oven in the kitchen. Complimentary olives were a nice touch. Highly recommended.

    Went for an early supper, and was not disappointed. Lovely atmosphere, food and service. An absolute delight, and will certainly go again next time we are visiting family in Hove.

    Myself, partner and our little 10 month old baby visited semola, from the minute we walked in there was a lovely atmosphere, everything was very clean and tidy and really had the authentic Italian feeling about it. Staff were lovely, even gave us some crayons and paper for our little girl. Food was really lovely, couldn’t rate this place enough and would highly recommend to anyone with babies and children

    I’m Italian and I know what does it mean good food! This place serves the most amazing good quality fresh pasta I ever eaten!!!! I come here every Saturday evening with my husband and tried a lot of different kind of pasta and they are all incredible! Plus the owner and the staff are really nice , very welcoming and polite, which is what you want when you go out to have a lovely dinner with your husband! Couldn’t recommend this place more!

    10/10 Amazing food!. I have just eaten the best pasta dish I have ever had in Years. I lived in Italy for 7 years and traveled the whole of Italy and eaten in 100s of restaurants over the 7 years and the pasta I ate tonight was as good as you will ever find anywhere in Italy and impossible to find in the U.K. If you are wanting to eat pasta and in the Brighton and Hove area this restaurant is a must!
