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.

We went to this restaurant with a Groupon voucher and the food was superb. Unfortunately we were not told about the extra charges on certain menu choices until after we had ordered but decided to stick with what we had. This was a bit naughtly as we had asked before choosing what was included in our voucher. However, we were... More

Enjoyed our meals very much in this restaurant, I had the steak with fries and salad my wife had sea bass which was quite large and the best she had ever had. We found that the price for the meals and wine were very good for this restaurant. The waiters were very helpful and good with the service, great restaurant... More

the food here was excellent. The whole sea bass was cooked perfectly and presented looking like it might swim across the table! The Tiramisu was light and delicious. The restaurant was quiet and ideal for couples or small groups. Quite expensive on 'a la carte' but good value with an offer.

Enjoyed our meal at this cute restaurant in the centre of Rye. The menu was fairly limited but the ingredients were first rate and the meal was delicious. One of the party was a fussy eater so the menu was a little limited for her but she plumped for the steak frites which she enjoyed. I had the rack of... More

We selected this restaurant one Saturday night and booked on the internet as it looked welcoming and what could go wrong with an Italian? I am afraid to say that the Tuscan Kitchen did not live up to expectations. On arrival the welcome was indifferent but we had a lovely table in the window so we soon settled in and... More

Rye is a beautiful location for any restaurant, with history seeping out of the walls. The Tuscan Kitchen is exactly what it says it is. The menu is small, always a good sign in my book as it shows fresh cooking. The service is excellent and attentive but not intrusive. Starters cost between £6 and £10, there's a choice of... More

This was our second visit - after a long gap - and we were lucky enough to have a Travelzoo voucher on this occasion. In reality we wouldn't have ordinarily gone for a 3 course lunch but this deal was outstanding value and enabled us to enjoy a superb bottle of wine! Everything was lovely, from the handmade bread through... More
