My husband and I had a rare night out so thought we would try our local italian restaurant. So glad we did, the food was lovely, my husband ordered steak which he said was the 'best he'd ever tasted' (and believe me he is very hard to please), it even shut him up for a while! I had spaghetti with... More

A beautiful little Italian restaurant which serves fantastic food. Carmini and Dini always make us feel very welcome. The squid is delicious so are all the other dishes. When visiting Hythe you must go there.

We have eaten here a number of times. The food is always fresh, interesting and in large amounts. It is one of the best Italian restaurants we have eaten in and a lot better than some in Italy. The atmosphere is cosy and for a quiet meal with your better half, it can not be beaten. It is also great... More

Visited for Sunday lunch. Nice welcome and nice selection of bread and olives bought over. Tagliatelle with meatballs were delicious and chicken terracotta very tasty. All ingredients were fresh and flavours were really lovely. The house wine was not good and my choice of wine wasn't sold by the glass. I would have liked to have been offered a taste... More

Really good food and generous portions. Owner and staff are friendly and welcoming. Good atmosphere. I'm a visitor in Hythe but Terracotta would be my regular place if I lived here.

No wine list offered. Ordered a bottle of chianti to find it was £33! It was the 2nd cheapest !!!! Lamb dish which cost £18 was two of the smallest lamb chops I've ever seen. Venison was covered in a sickly white cream sauce. Overpriced, no atmosphere, avoid.
