Positives: Unique, fresh pasta, love that the menu changes daily. Couldn't believe how cheap it was, such good value for money. Wine was absolutely delish. The food was really authentic and the staff are so so nice. Our friends even ordered some pasta to take home!

Could improve on: I don't particularly like the lack of table service, particularly if the restaurant isn't that busy, the staff are so polite they would provide great service at the table. The food is so nice I really think they should offer some starters/nibbles.

Its a great little place and I would highly recommend!

A little gem of a restaurant - we've eaten in and also had takeaway, and not been disappointed. The food is extremely tasty and fresh, the prices amazingly good, and although the menu is quite small and simple the sauces change every day. Plus the tiramisu dessert is absolutely the best I've ever had! The staff are really friendly and helpful too. If you expect good, simple Italian food done really well you won't be disappointed!

Amazing meal. Best value Italian we've ever had. Very simple but so fresh and tasty. Lovely staff too. We both had pasta and shared a pizza and don't think they're charging enough for how good it is!

Menu changes daily but loads of choice of dishes and wines

A real welcome addition to hove. No fuss, no frills, authentic Italian. And you definitely won't leave hungry!

The whole experience at Semola was great. The pasta was delicious, really imaginative flavours with classic sauces. The service was excellent, supper helpful and very passionate about what they do.

We tried the two types of pasta, the pizza and deserts and it was all fantastic. The prices were really good value too. We will be going back again and again!

This was our third visit to this new restaurant which has a small menu of freshly prepared pasta. Having eaten well on two occasions we returned tonight to an undercooked lasagne with uncooked potato and over salted pasta with a hair in it. The staff were lovely but we will not return.

We are so sorry for the inconvenience. We always follow all the HACCP specific rules for food hygiene wearing hats inside and outside the kitchen. It has never happened before. If you had informed us of the matter, we would have replaced immediately the dish. We sincerely apologise for it. We hope to see you again.
