Finding Pesca Trattoria Hove

Located in prosperous Hove, on Church Road, between the popular Second and Third Avenues. Pesca is well situated as a destination spot, should you be looking for an excuse to cross the Brighton Hove border. It’s also aptly placed for locals on lunch, beachgoers and anyone ‘toing and froing’ from Hove train station.

The feel of Pesca 

This Hove restaurant is fronted by floor to ceiling concertina doors, creating a bright and welcoming atmosphere inside, which opens up during summer for an outside/inside dining experience . Outside, there is also a good amount of street side seating for alfresco dining.

The decor palette draws influence from the restaurant’s name (pesca being Italian for peach). Peach is the colour that woos passersby in from the streets. Plush velvet bar stools line the counter, inviting you to dine at the bar side. For those, after a more intimate dining experience, there is no shortage of comfortable seating to choose from.

The cocktail menu is delightfully Italian too. Specialising in the favourite mixes such as Bellini, Aperol spritz and offering not one but three varieties on the Negroni! Some are served classic, but others will benefit from the homemade extras that are lovingly prepared, foraged and crafted by the venue’s creative team.
