“Small but Perfectly Formed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

I have now had a couple of meals in this small but wonderful restaurant. The food is always freshly cooked and the service fantastic, just the right mix of attention to ensure diners are happy but quiet to have a conversation with those in your party. All diets can be catered for, I took both vegetarian and vegan and nothing was too much effort. The pasta is home-made, light and delicious this coupled with excellent coffee and reasonable prices means I will continue to eat here.

“Fantastic food and people.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

This small family owned business is an authentic Italian restaurant where you can grab a coffee and Sandwich to go or sit in and enjoy everything from the food to the accommodating owners. I have been to this establishment many times and have thoroughly enjoyed every visit. The owners restaurant is testament to who they are and is a must try if you're in the local area.

“Small & Personable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We went here yesterday and were welcomed by the very friendly owners. Coffee was fantastic and the food was all freshly made. Lovely little place to stop for lunch! All dishes were authentic Italian (apart from the full English breakfast).

“Friendly and fun with great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

I have been promising myself lunch at Elena’s kitchen for weeks now and today I finally made my first visit, I waited too long and should have gone months ago. First the coffee it is not just good it is superb then what to eat well Elena had a few ideas and I chose the ricotta and mushroom omlette, it was light and fluffy, perfectly cooked and very tasty and came with crusty baguette and butter as well a roast vegetable accompaniment, that should have been enough but by now I was enjoying the company in the café so much and the cake looked delicious and another coffee had to be had so I stayed, who wouldn’t and I will be back agaian very soon. So how much was this mini blowout freshly cooked treat, less than £8. If you want posh nosh and fine dining go somewhere else, if you want a warm welcome, great tasting fresh food, good company and a see you again soon attitude try Elena’s kitchen you will love it.

Thankyou so much for your review and for coming to our 'kitchen'. We look forward to seeing you soon and would love you to come and try our pizzas on a Friday evening and of course our tiramisu', eat in or takeaway- we start cooking pizzas at 5 but give us a call for any special order as we also make gluten free.
