Wander on down to Semola, Church Road, and prepare to discover a luscious little pocket of proper Italian deliciousness within our own fair town of Hove. 

Semola is very much a family affair, with many of the incredibly knowledgable staff originally from the land of pizza and pasta itself. Trust us when we say fresh, homemade pasta is in VERY safe hands here - the flavours are authentic, the methods traditional, and the results phenomenal. 

The emphasis on traditional, authentic Italian style is woven throughout the entire fabric of Semola: the restaurant is furnished exclusively with custom-made materials from Italy, the wine choices have a clear Italian bias, and there is an undeniably Italian passion and enthusiasm underpinning the choice of ingredients and dishes served. The raw produce used is all high quality and seasonal, and is mainly sourced from either Italy or locally. The real star of the show, however, is their homemade pasta: fresh and light, yet hearty and warming, it's served up with incredible sauces that'll keep you coming back for more.

Wriggle recommends assembling your favourite eating partners-in-crime, chatting with the lovely, friendly staff about the food and drink on offer, and taking their recommendations as gospel.
