Out enjoying the beautiful late September weather and stopped to have a stroll when we spotted this restaurant. Thought we’d give it a whirl and we were not dissapointed. Delicious food and good service with a smile.

This is a delightful restaurant located in the small town of Tenterden. The staff are all friendly and very Italian! The food is also very genuine. The menu is reasonably priced and none of the dishes dissappoint.

Simply a Tenterden treasure. Sicilian fare, excellently presented and sumptuously tasting. Had the Ravioli Granchio and Fusillli Spada et Menta. Truly delightful to the tastebuds and accompanied by a fine glass of Sicilian Shiraz. Attentive wait staff. Could clearly see why it was well patronise.

Response from Jonathan K | Reviewed this property |
It's variable, but standard (but good quality) Italian fare, with seasonable variations and 'specials'. As others state, check their website.

They are very helpful and will cater for individual needs. However, they are a traditional Italian so whilst they can cope with gluten free it probably isn't suitable if you're coeliac.
