Edendum – Brighton

I am definitely drawn to trying new Italian places, particularly those that claim to be genuine Italian.

I’ve always loved Italian food and feel very fortunate to have lived in Italy.

Naturally when I come across a place that I can try, particularly a local haunt then I am keen.

Edendum opened in August 2015 and the first time I went there was a month later.  It is a cafe, restaurant and food shop.

Perhaps it could be debated that I approached my visit in an unusual manner.  After all, I had coffee first – a macchiato…

Then I pored over the menu deciding what to have.

When we lived in Italy we tended to have pasta every day for lunch so it seemed right to deliberate over the potential primi dishes.

And I decided on – Paccheri con salsa di rucola, ricotta salata e nocciole

It was very filling.

However, I am a dessert person and couldn’t go past trying the panna cotta; and it was utterly worth it.

There is a lot of food to choose from if you wish to purchase something from the food shop. 


A highlight for me would have to be the fact that I could speak Italian with Diego (who is one of the owners).
