There are a number of reasonable restaurants in Hythe - but the brasserie we had our eye on was already fully booked on a cold evening in Hythe. We liked the look of Terracotta so made a reservation. Our table was in the rather brightly lit back room which is comfortable and warm. Immediately after we sat down a plate... More

Very friendly staff. Nice setting. Why cover charge? £3:50. We didn't want un-asked for food. Nice wine. Food good especially The zucchini Frits however the carpaccio of salmon was frozen with rock salt in too much abundance. No customers except a table of loud workmen. I don't recommend.

This was a real find on a short break to Hythe. The food was truly amazing and both of us enjoyed it greatly. A very authentic Italian restaurant. If we came back, we'd definitely return!

While the restaurant feels quite old fashioned, we were most impressed with the food here - Linguine Vongole was the best I'd ever had, with beautiful fresh clams, and the vegetarian pizza my partner was right up there with the best too, with asparagus topping it off. Tiramisu was to die for. A nice little surprise evening in Hythe -... More

We visited on the Wednesday evening when the menu is limited as the 'deal' is a main course and a drink for £9 except it isn't as there is a £1.50 cover charge per person. It's not big thingl but I do find this annoying. We all had pizza and mine with Bresaola was very good as was the vegetarian.... More

I do not go out to dine very often in the evening but as the restaurant is only open in the evening I decided to try it just once, especially as it was only a few yards from my guest house. There was a very warm welcome and the truly excellent, freshly prepared and cooked Italian food was delicious. Nothing... More

What great food, one pizza, two pasta dishes ordered and I choose the risotto...well it was truly heavenly, also ordered some garlic bread and finished meal with delightful coffees. Service was very... More

We are on our way home to Essex after a day out in the area today and so happy we booked this restaurant. Was the perfect end to the day. We have been to Italy quite a bit and this meal was so authentic and delicious. It was just as good as many we have had in Italy. They were... More
