Nuposto Review: An Authentic Italian Pizza in the Heart of Brighton

Nuposto Review: An Authentic Italian Pizza in the Heart of Brighton

When Nuposto hit the streets of Brighton, fellow foodies rejoiced that we were finally getting some more authentic pizza joints in the city. This is our second visit and it’s definitely improved since our first trip last year, they now also serve fresh pasta so there’s something for everybody.

We saw Nuposto are now on Wriggle offering a starter, main and a drink for £11.95, so we headed down one Friday evening for a cheap date night.


Josh went for the garlic bread with cheese, otherwise known as cheesy garlic bread, and I opted for the bruschetta. The garlic bread could do with being a bit cheesier but to be fair, we are a little too obsessed with cheese. My starter was pretty damn good, completely overloaded with tomatoes it was fresh and filling.


For the mains I chose a pizza and Josh went for pasta, he prefers your Dominoes style pizza over authentic Italian pizza so he wasn’t too keen on Nuposto when we came last year but since they’ve introduced a fresh pasta menu I can see ourselves coming back again and again.

My pizza came with spinach, ham, mushrooms and goats cheese and as you can see, they didn’t go sparse with the toppings. The leoparding on the pizza was pretty good, but I’m never keen on the burnt bubbles on the dough.

Josh’s pasta was freshly made tagliatelle with mussels and prawns. This is the most expensive dish on their pasta menu but it still falls under the Wriggle deal so Josh couldn’t help but have it. The seafood was fresh and cooked well, the sauce was tasty but lacked a little seasoning and as a whole, the meal was good but not wowing.

Nuposto is open late with a big and modern interior and if you grab the deal off Wriggle it’s a good spot for a quick meal out with a friend or partner. Their pizza is more expensive than Franco Manca and I would rate it below them too, however this Wriggle deal is definitely worth a trip down to West Street.

  • I do love their delivery pizza – must try the pasta too!

    Oh em gee! I need to try here ASAP. I do want to try Franco Manca first though, it always looks so busy in there! There’s not a single thing from this post I wouldn’t eat! My mouth is literally watering haha!

    I definitely need to come back here, we hadn’t been too impressed first time around either but I definitely want to try their pasta!

  • I haven’t been to Nuposto in a long time, but this post has made me want to go back asap! The pizza photo got me drooling. When it comes to Brighton pizza though, I think Fatto a Mano beats Franca Manca and Nuposto – you guys should check it out! 🙂 (they are proper Italian pizzas though, sorry Josh!)
