Last weekend, around 25 of us went to Al Duomo in Brighton. We'd been able to book it at relatively short notice so we weren't expecting it to be great... but as it turns out, "not great" doesn't quite cover it.
We were absolutely CRAMMED onto our table on the top floor - fair enough, they'd squeezed us in at the last minute after all - but over the whole meal they failed to remove any of the extra wineglasses, cutlery or even the olive plates and bread baskets so we had to do a lot of... (read more)

As a group of 6 we decided to head to Al Duomo for some pre theatre food. I'd seen on their website that they offered a very reasonable meal offer. 3 courses for £10 or 2 for £7.50 I think (but not very much really). The early evening was sunny and very warm so we opted to eat outdoors and ok, the tables and seating were a little wobbly and could probably do with updating but still for the price I wasn't expecting too much. I went for pizza as I'd heard reviews that praised it's wood fired... (read more)

An awful place. Bad service, terrible terrible Italian food and full of loud drunken hen parties. Quite possibly the worst attempt at Italian food I have eaten, bears no relation to authentic Italian food.
It was like eating a microwave meal in a nightclub. Did they care when our party of nine complained.
A truly loathsome dining experience. (read more)

Having eaten at Al Duomo previously, I took a group of six friends there and was surprised by the very poor service. We had to leave after waiting 45 minutes for our starters, which failed to appear, despite being told twice that they were "on their way". There was no explanation or apology from the waiters beyond "we are busy", which was clear to see. The manager's assistant was sympathetic and we left her to deal with the party of 20 on the neighbouring table who had been waiting for... (read more)

Service at Al Duomo was the slow and the worst I have ever had in the UK. Refused to pay service charge and was subjected to a torrent of abuse.
The best part was the Manager standing outside the the restaurant on a busy Sunday, screaming obscenities at what he referred to as "ignorant English peasants" - try explaining that to yor six-year-old daughter. Probably needs a lesson in marketing techniques. (read more)
