Pasta Workshop

Next: Thursday 8th August           Max 14 places
or: Thursday 12th September

Christina will teach you how to make two different types of handmade pasta. The kitchen will cook the first one you have made and then the second will be pack up in one of our pasta kit boxes together with a sugo and instructions. 

You will be offered a bottomless amount of Prosecco to keep you lubricated. It is so much fun.


What we do

Our new seasonal special is a fresh devon white crab, handmade ravioli 

Take a look at our all new Summer menu, there will be new items coming on as our kitchen garden starts producing seasonal veg and salads. Go to our menu page to see!

Authentic Italian dishes

Our pasta is made every morning in the front window by our chef. We first make the pappardelle for our ragu and then start on The Poco so that they are fresh every day. All our dishes are authentic and traditional Italian recipes drawn from both Christina's and Jamie's Italian heritage

The bottle shop

When you visit us you will notice a vast selection of the best wine known to humanity for sale. You can buy a bottle or two for taking home or drinking in with your meal. 


From my Italian Nonna to Sussex with local produce

I used to leave school at 3pm and walk to my Nonna's house and stay there until my Mum finished work. My Nonna never spoke English all the 38 years she lived in Polegate but she had her Ragu going on the stove all that time. The left overs would go back in and the sugo was the same stock for at least 20 years. Then in 1996 I met Christina and Claudio Cavallari in Eastbourne. They had just arrived in Eastbourne from running thier restaurant in Bologna for ten years. Chirstina is Cordon Bleu trained in Paris and has spent 35 years of her life perfecting her art. They invited me and Mathilda (daughter and boss) to their house for dinner and Christina's cooking, especially her Tiramisu, was better than Nonna's (sorry Nonna). Now with Christina heading up the kitchen and Mathilda and I front of house we, together are fulfilling a 25 year dream.


Bottle shop - Wine

We have a large selection of wines and local beers for you to take away. Most of our wines are selected direct from vineyards with careful consideration. Come and have a look and try some outstanding wine experiences. We wrap each bottle in our branded tissue. 

Wolstonbury Pet Nat

Ivan, the winemaker, and his family have a vineyard just outside Brighton at the base of Wolstonbury hill. They produce just 3500 bottles a year and we are lucky to be the only outlet for their wine other than their tasting room. 

Mas de Daumas Gassac 2005

Nicknamed 'The Lafite of the Languedoc' This wine is one of the best Cabernet Savignon's of France. With nearly 20 years in the bottle, the age has balanced the fruit and tanins to give an extremely smooth experience. 

We are giving you the opportunity to have just a glass of this wine using our Corvin system

Cosme Palacio 1894 Bianco
White Rioja

This wine has entered the favourite list for Poco.. It drinks like an old Burgundy. Only 1775 bottles produced, this wine is pure art. With notes of honey and vanilla and a buttery and creamy finish. 

It is on our monthly specials by the glass list so, you can come and try a glass...
