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.

overall a nice meal but not a great choice of Italian food and a little over priced for what we had. Won't be returning.

I had read some reviews on Trip Advisor prior to visiting Rye and decided to book our Saturday evening meal at this establishment. The restaurant has a quaint and rustic feel and the staff very friendly and polite. Food was very good too, I had scallops to start and my wife had the prawn & avocado dish. Scallops were cooked...

We found this lovely little place by accident and definitely didn't disappoint. Quaint from the outside and great atmosphere inside. We took our 3 year old and they were very absolutely lovely to her, chatting about toys etc. I had the sea bass and was a little put off by the presentation, although the flavours were amazing.

I went here with my wife, who treated me for my birthday and we were not disappointed. It's a cute old building in the backstreet leading to the church, but inside, it's got a lovely intimate ambiance. The staff were attentive but not over powering. When we were seated they asked if we would like some water and they included... More

My wife and I took the off chance that a table might be available for Saturday night which we thought was highly unlikely but lo and behold there was one so off we went on what was an unplanned visit. I'd heard very good reports about this charming restaurant and having been under previous owners may years ago decided to... More

Have looked at the restaurant many times but not open on our day off (Mondays). well worth the wait, excellent food & very helpful staff without being intrusive. Food as good as any Italian I have been to, including trips to Italy. Will definitely be returning.

We went to visit Rye last weekend, really cute and colorful little town as long as its 30 restaurants. Tuscan Kitchen its a very cosy place, with good service and fine menu. I had a bufala caprese salad and spaghetti alle vongole after, my boyfriend had scalops as a starter and papardelle with panchetta and scalops after - that was... More
