Just fancied an Italian and saw this as we drove to Penzance. We booked for the evening for four of us and they managed to squeeze us in. They had a table of 16 schoolgirls from Ascot with their teachers so we were lucky we got in just before they ordered!! Lovely décor inside, very cosy but spacious with some... More

I was travelling alone so looking for a local spot where I could get a good meal without feeling conspicuous. Walking past it looked ok so I dropped in for an evening meal without booking. Service was prompt and with a smile and they found me a table which suited someone on their own. I took the house red wine... More

We booked a table here for 4 of us for a Birthday meal out. We were happy to see that they allowed dogs into their garden where we sat under a beautiful canopy and heat lamp. The service was quick and pleasant. We were immediately sat to a table of our liking and ordered our drinks. We had a bottle... More

We had been meaning to visit this place for ages & only managed to get around to it last week. Very good food, friendly, helpful service & nice decor.

I'm local to the Penzance area and regularly eat out. I have not had a meal like this in a long time! Absolutely beautiful food, full of flavour and cooked to perfection. A large selection of Italian dishes and a lovely environment to dine in. Open and bright and very friendly, young, happy to help staff! Thanks for a lovely... More

After a recommendation in a guest book at the apartment we stayed in, we decided to pay a visit to The Italian Kitchen on a Monday evening. We called in without booking and a seemingly friendly waitress showed us to a table. My husband and I ordered calamari starters and the daily specials for our main meals which were chargrilled...

We stayed here as a friend had recommended "the Italian in Newlyn" - we can only assume there is another Italian as I'm sure she cannot have meant the Italian Kitchen! The waitress was bored-looking and completely personality-free - she did not offer one word over and above that necessary in which to take our order. The food took quite... More

Firstly, our main waitress was helpful and pleasant if a bit timid. We were 4 children and 11 adults on holiday. The starters were all without exception very good, the mains were not. I had Carbonara, I'm nearly sure it had Elmlea cream in it, it was stiff and the only taste to it was a bitter aftertaste, I couldn't... More

Visited on the 1st night of a holiday in Newlyn, had to vistit again before the holiday ended as we found that they do, without reservation, the most wonderful pizzas in an al-fresco setting - bit noisy, but the experience was more than worth it.
