Review on Al Duomo
Al Duomo is Brighton's oldest pizza and pasta joint (established in 1979) a mammoth 300 seater restaurant with a vast piazza area next to the Royal Pavilion and close to the Pier and the Lanes. Open 363 days a year (they take a break on Christmas Day and Boxing Day), the place feeds hordes of families and tourists right through the day.
The interior comprises a spacious ground floor complete with a wood-fired pizza oven on view towards the back, plus a mezzanine level under a glass conservatory ceiling, an upper level and two private rooms. Venetian-style 'commedia dell'arte' masks on the walls add some extra vibrancy to proceedings.
Al Duomo is renowned for its pizzas (they come in around 20 versions with all manner of toppings), but the kitchen also delivers a full range of pastas (anything from tagliatelle with red pesto and pine nuts to pappardelle with meatballs), plus assorted antipasti and various mains including Italian-style 'fish and chips' and lamb shank with honey and sage. To drink , there are beers, cocktails, softies and a decent wine list that takes in the New World as well as Italy.
