The Tuscan Kitchen is an intimate restaurant which specialises in Tuscan cuisine but also features food from other regions of Italy. The menu changes regularly and there is an extensive wine list to suit all tastes and budgets. Booking is advisable. A recent refurbishment means that we now have more seating overlooking our courtyard to accommodate larger groups. The Tuscan Kitchen was taken over by Lucy and Gerry Avena in September 2013.

I got a Travelzoo voucher and booked with ease for Easter Saturday, the staff were very nice and gave us a good table, they were attentive yet discreet which added to the ambience. The food was 1st class and we would recommend this little gem to all.

Just back from a weekend to Rye to celebrate my birthday and our wedding anniversary. Had shortlisted the Tuscan Kitchen as one of the restaurants to eat at during our stay and so was pleased to see a Travelzoo offer that would fit in with our visit. The restaurant is in a lovely old building and is full of character.... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant after buying a Travelzoo voucher. In spite of a very good price for the meal we were treated like Royalty, and the quality of the food and service was much better than expected The restaurant is a lovely cosy old wooden beamed building which adds to the relaxed atmosphere. Next time I eat... More

Booked this restaurant via open table thus entitling us to 50% of our mains. So obviously we had to choose the fillet steak main with homemade fries, rocket & Parmesan. The steak was cooked perfectly - medium rare - as requested. The chips were a delight and the rocket and Parmesan complimented the steak delightfully. Our starters consisted of bruschetta... More

My partner booked this restaurant for my birthday as he knows that Italian food is a favourite of mine. It did not disappoint. The food was very good, the service attentive wthout being overbearing and the retaurant had a good atmosphere. If we were in the area again we would definitely go back.

Visited Tuscan Kitchen in March 2015 with my partner. This was our first visit to this restaurant and we didn't make reservations. We arrived in the evening and there was only one other table occupied so we had a huge choice of tables to choose from. Was a bit concerned it was so quiet but then it was midweek at... More

We were recommended this restaurant for my birthday and the reviews were excellent. However, it may be that we just hit a bad time or the chef was off that night, but we were really disappointed. I chose hake which was so dry it was like cardboard and my husband's pasta dish was mediocre and luke warm We made the... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal out at Tucan Kitchen tonight. Took advantage of a special deal - 3 course meal for 4 people for £75. Each course was delicious and varied, ensuring we experienced many Tuscan delights. The menu is easy to view on their website. Only criticism is that that tables were quite cramped in resulting in my partner's shoulder... More
