Italian
Real Italian and Lithuanian food in the heart of Kent. Set in the Thames-side town of Gravesend, RM Italiano is a warm, welcoming trattoria with a difference! We serve real Italian and Lithuanian dishes, cooked the old fashioned way with plenty of love. Our Italian food is redolent with the flavours and aromas of the old country – the sunshine on the hills, the olive groves and orchards. Our Lithuanian dishes include genuine classics like fermented kvass and “spirit of the forest” venison. Come in for lunch or dinner, and sit awhile with us!

We are regular customers and have never been dissapointed, the welcome is always friendly.
The restaurant was quite busy but it did not affect the service or the quality of the food

Although the service was quite good the risotto was hard and made with long grain rice I had to send it away, the steak sauce was very watery and had to be poured off plate, all in all a very disappointing meal

We arrived at 7:30pm to an empty restaurant and we were greeted by a polite gentleman.

We had a drink and ordered our food. The food was very nice but I do feel that as we were the only people in the restaurant that it came very quickly and we were in danger of finishing our meal before we had finished our drinks.

Overall we had a lovely evening and after a group of people entered we felt more at ease and less self conscious.

Another excellent meal at R&M Italiano. Attentive service, great food and at what I consider a fair price. We took the children (8 and 15) with us on this visit and they enjoyed trying new to them dishes (such at the Herring with roasted carrots and onions in tomato sauce) as well as staple favourites (pizza !).

A little gem of a place which was rather unexpected given its location. Beautiful food in a delightful cosy setting. The waiter was extremely attentive and keen to help, though there was a bit of a language barrier. We will definitely return and we will recommend to friends. Well done, thank you!

We had heard good report from friends.
We were not disappointed, the Reception was friendly and efficient, drink orders taken quickly.
We were given plenty of time to choose our food.
The courses came out in good time and the food was excellently cooked and plentiful
Wine was good quality. The whole meal was reasonably price. We will be back

Nice evening -split by finding a long hair in meal. Waiter offered to get replacement meal, which was declined. They did take cost off of the bill. Didn't like being blamed for putting my hair in meal!

We both ordered Steak with was really chewy, everything else was spot on, really nice flavours, such a shame. I'd try it again because I think its worth another go, hopefully this time it will be more tender

Nice restaurant, not a great location but that’s forgotten when you walk in. Lovely food, service a little slow but didn’t seem to be many staff waiting on.
I’d return.

Two of us enjoyed fresh kaprio (caprese) salad, veggie pizza and gnocchi all with a bottle of reasonably priced red Italian wine. Total price was £44 and well worth every bite and a few pounds on the hips!

It is a very small restaurant perfect for small groups who want to talk and eat. The server was exceptional, he remembered everones order without writing anything down.

Very friendly staff, food was nicely cooked and presented, good quality and value for money. For a small restaurant it had a very rustic and homely atmosphere, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Great selection of Italian food and some more unusual Lithuanian alternatives.

Once again it didnt disappoint l decide to try something l've never had before, beef carpacio & l have to say it was divine! l took a friend who was visiting fron Yorkshire & she was impressed too, l have been with friends on a number of occasions but this was also my husbands first visit & he loved the apple pie (its his favourite) at 60+ yrs hr's tasted a few, he said it was one of the best & not too sweet. so we'll definitely be back again soon.

The sort of cosy, family run restaurant which seem hard to find these days. Small, intimate and friendly. Fauntless service and a varied manu. I'll be back.......

We were all really impressed with this place. The food is great value and really tasty. The staters were good but nothing to rave about, however the mains were fantastic. I had the venison which was delicious and also tried some of my husbands duck and friends steak. All were really good and the service was brilliant. A cheerful waiter who was really helpful and good fun. Would definitely go again!

Had the seafood linguine this time & the flavour was beautiful no sticky stodgy pasta here. It is rapidly becoming a firm favourite & such a broad menu to choose from. Xxx
