We booked the function room downstairs at Al Duomo for our Wedding reception & it was perfect for our 80 guests.

Alberto who looked after us right from the first meeting was brilliant & he really got what we were after, good food, drink flowing & music turned up loud!

We had a fantastic time made all the more wonderful due to the attentive, caring, generous nature of the staff. We had a buffet and every item was spot on & tasted amazing, nothing was too much trouble.
Good to have bar staff that can keep up with a bunch of thirsty scots!

Thank you guys for making it a fantastic event.

My Husband and I renewed our Wedding Vows on Friday 1st August 2014 and couldn’t have picked a better venue for our reception. From the beginning Alberto was professional and easy to talk to and offered a brilliant service. On arrival from Brighton Town Hall we had the most delicious olives and sun dried tomatoes laid on tables outside for us and were welcomed in to the bar area to order our drinks.

 
2-4-1 Cocktails were available and the bar staff were happy, friendly and put our guests in the party mood! We had an area outside for all our guests to sit down and after about 45 minutes we were brought out some gorgeous mini pizza bites that we hadn’t asked for. They were delicious and went down perfectly. We went downstairs at 5.15pm for our meal and our guests were impressed that there was so much choice to order from. For 40 people to get exactly what they ordered all at the same time was impressive. 
 
The steak was the most popular choice among our guests and each one was cooked to perfection. For dessert we had asked for our chocolate wedding cake to be cut up and served with clotted cream and fruit that we had provided. It was all laid out on a table with the cream in a bowl and the fruit was drizzled in chocolate. The presentation was beautiful and the staff really went that bit further. The private bar was run by a girl with dark blonde hair who was absolutely brilliant! She was quick at serving people and was chatty and had people drinking shots by 8pm! Everyone commented on her. The DJ was excellent and played any requests that people asked for. The buffet was brought out and again the presentation was excellent. There was such a wide choice of food and catered for everyone. All in all my Husband and I cannot fault Al Duomo and would recommend it to anyone, In fact we are planning to get all our friends together in October or November for one of their Friday evening ‘Boogie Nights!’

We recently had our wedding reception at Al Duomo’s and couldn’t recommend the venue, food and staff highly enough. 

The organisation of the reception was completely seamless and stress free. The manager, Alberto, has lots of experience of hosting such events and was really helpful. We discussed all of the finer details and he luckily reminded us about several important things we had completely forgotten! From our first meeting I had every confidence that the day would run smoothly. 

We had reception drinks in the outside seating area and downstairs bar and the meal upstairs in the mezzanine area. This arrangement was Alberto’s suggestion and it worked perfectly. The mezzanine area is bright and airy and the staff at Al Duomo’s prepared the room beautifully with a lot of care and attention to detail. 

We created a set menu and all of our guests were very happy with the wide selection of dishes available. I cannot fault the food – it was well timed, good sized portions, hot and tasty.

All of the staff at Al Duomo’s were outstanding – helpful, efficient and friendly (even at gone midnight when our meal had turned into an unexpected disco!). They worked very hard and went out of their way to make sure everyone was happy. 

We ran a tab throughout the day and evening and I was pleasantly surprised at the total cost. Both the food and drinks (which I find are often inflated in restaurants) were fairly priced. On the day, Alberto also included some complimentary canapés and sambuca!

If you are considering a party or celebration I think you would struggle to find a better venue in Brighton. We haven’t got any events planned in the near future but will definitely be returning for a meal!

Hi Alberto,

Apologies for the late reply, we went away for a mini-honeymoon at the beginning of last week and are only just catching up with everything!
We’d both like to thank you and all of the staff for making last Saturday such a wonderful evening. Many of our guests commented on how amazing the food was and how friendly and helpful the staff were (we actually tipped them an extra £50 because we were so pleased with them) and from our point of view, things couldn’t possibly have gone more smoothly. We’ve been recommending the restaurant to everyone we’ve spoken to, and I’m certain that quite a few of our guests will now be regular visitors. I really wouldn’t know what to say regarding areas for improvement, as everything was genuinely perfect!
So thanks once again, and please pass on our thanks to Patrick and all the staff, as they really made the day feel special.
All the best.

Dear Alberto

Firstly sorry it has taken me so long to respond. The Wedding was amazing and I could not asked for you  or your team to anything more for us.  We had a fantastic day and th food was excellent and all the guests have made psoitive comments about the day.
 
I would like to say thank you for everything and I will be recommending you to friends and family in the future.
 
I will also be hosting a big Christmas party for work and I know its along way away right now but I would love to use the facilities again for a meal and a party.  This could involve 200 people again.
 
Thanks
