Description: The Tuscan Kitchen is a small Osteria where you can taste all the flavours of food and and wine of the Tuscan region. Home to Florentine chef Franco, authentic and true to the Tuscan tradition you are transported to the backstreets of Florence and Siena. As in an historic Tuscan Osteria the atmosphere is convivial. The restaurant is rustic and simple with only 11 tables ensures an intimate atmosphere with conviviality and enjoyment of eating drinking together.

Two years ago we were treated to a special evening in this warm friendly restaurant. My sister and I vowed to go back and we did and had another exceptional evening. It is hard to explain the ambience and the food other than unique. Marred only by the fact that on looking at the bill the next day realised my sister had mistaken the name of the wine *(handwritten) to say service so realised we left without leaving a tip, how embarassing, oh well will have to go back to make up for it!!!!!

Heard so much about this restaurant and was therefore worried that it would not live up to the reputation. I should not have been concerned as this is a restaurant that recognises what their customers expect and they deliver. Not the cheapest but no complaints when they deliver quality on every plate with attentive generous service in a friendly unhurried environment. Yep..this is how you do it...

Spent another great evening at the Tuscan Kitchen on thursday 29th November. The service was as good as ever, the food better than ever, wine was superb, as always. My wife and I have dined at the Tuscan kitchen several times now and the experience just gets better. We have been on holiday in the western hills of Tuscany many times and a dining experience at the Tuscan kitchen is a near as you can get to the real thing. Franco's cooking is supberb - its not pretentious but is the real taste of Tuscany and so flavoursome. Jen makes the atmosphere so good at front of house. Her knowledge of the food and wine on the menu's is spot on. We would also like to thank the waiter who was working that evening - again he was great - did not catch his name. We will return a.s.a.p for another great TUSCAN experience.
Thanks to all at the Tuscan Kitchen for a real taste of Tuscany - keep up the SPLENDID work. It is so wonderfull to know that Jen and Franco are true to the Tuscan way and do not change their ethos and provide their patrons with true authentic regional cooking.

We have had the pleasure of eating here many times. The food, ambience and service are wonderful. The food is authentically Tuscan, and Jenny or Helge can always recommend dishes, and Jenny can tell you so much about the origins of the food and ingredients. At the end of the evening chef Franco will come out and have a chat and a drink with diners. Go - you will not be disappointed!

Visited the above restaurant with friends on a Thursday eve- a little while since our last visit as it's just sooooo difficult to get a table!
And quite right , had a fabulous meal, as always.
No wonder it's so popular with the locals.
The smoked swordfish starter is to die for- topped with red peppercorn and shavings of fennel.
Decided to have cod this time( perhaps not adventurous you may say but....) so delicious and flavoursome in a tomato based sauce. Looked at our friends veal chop- now that is definitely for the next visit.
Jenny and Franco runs a top establishment in Rye well supported by the ever professional Helge.Will be back a lot sooner but so will all my neighbours!!
