Ok but nothing special

The menu is varied and there were some specials to choose from. We chose one starter from the specials but sadly it was not good. The main courses, two pizzas and a steak were adequate but nothing special. However the waiting staff were quick, efficient and friendly.

Great starter, main course was ruined by the 30 to 40 capers which more than overwhelmed the prawns. When mentioning to staff, and lined up all the capers, which were sickly, was informed the chef would be told. Heard no more and was billed for ruined main course. Would never go there again, ever. Be very wary......ruined the evening. Guess... More

We stopped off on a sunny evening as the patio area looked good from the street. It's actually pretty grubby and the tables need cleaning. Road noise more than we appreciated. The menu is pretty basic, not a great range and we plumped for a couple of folded pizzas which were undercooked and pretty bland. A shared pot of skin... More

I made a booking and then read the reviews. We nearly cancelled but thought we would give it a go. We were glad we did. The staff were very friendly, it was a cool night but wonderfully cosy inside. At first we wondered where the host was taking us out the back but the Kichen opens into lovely area in... More

Was greeted by a friendly face and showed to our table. The menu was great, plenty of choice and the table service was some of the best I've had, food and drinks came out extremely fast and tasty was an understatement! We had a great evening at the Italian Kitchen and will definitely be visiting again. Thanks to all of... More

Before arriving at the Italian kitchen we were a little put off by a few bad reviews we had seen on trip advisor, but on arrival we were greeted with huge smiles, a friendly chat and a Menu of varied food. We had the bruschetta and Camembert for starter which were really tasty, and as they did not have our... More

Found this place after being totally disappointed by local pubs in the area and pleased we did. Very welcoming and staff very friendly. Food was good but does rely heavily on pizzas, perhaps inclusion of a greater variety of Italian dishes should be considered. Notwithstanding this the food itself was very good.

Good atmosphere and menu. Plenty of choice for all the family. The food was good, loved the Camembert starter. Good wine choice and some very nice desserts. Young waitresses were pleasant but the service tailed off halfway through our meal and we had to ask for the bill three times.

First impressions of the Italian Kitchen were very good. The young staff were friendly and enthusiastic and the menu looked appetising, if not the most imaginative we've ever seen. From there, however, things went slightly downhill. The food was fine and not overly expensive, but the service got slower and slower as the evening progressed, and the room got colder... More
