Description: Welcome to Mucini Italian Kitchen. Set in the attractive Whitstable suburb of Tankerton, on the north east coast of Kent, Mucini is a small family-run restaurant which offers a fresh approach to traditional Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. We invite you to sit comfortably in our tastefully appointed dining room where you can experience at close hand the sights, sounds and aromas of our Sicilian chef at work in the intimate open kitchen. Seating is also available outside, should you wish to dine 'al-fresco'. Why Mucini? Dining at Mucini has been described by one visitor as 'a truly theatrical experience' in recent testimonials, whereas other satified customers have described Mucini as 'an intimate restaurant with lots of character and so different from the usual high street chains'.

I visited this restrurant tonight and it was great the waitress were very polite and helpful without being intrusive. We could see the food being prepared. The food itself was very good. We will be back!. And the price was extremely reasonable. I have read the latest review and all I can say is they went to a different restrurant to me. Thanks again.

Have to say seriously overrated and overpriced.
Sat by the loos with people pushing past the table. Lots of extras and a waitress who clearly had other places to be. Got the feeling that they happily fleece the weekend visitors. Very basic tasteless food at high prices. Other far superior places to eat in Whitstable

Michele, who owns, runs and cooks the food at Mucini is half Sicilian and half French. The food is 100% Italian and is very good. The feel is somewhat quirky, very friendly and they set out to give you a good restaurant experience.
Look, this is no frills, honest Italian cooking. It's reasonably priced and the wine list is small but decent.
Quick tip: ask for a table in the front so you can see the food being prepared.....it's more fun that way

service excellent, food very good - very quiet assume this was because it was lunchtime - there were a good mix of 'specials' as well as the usual menu. The waitress was very friendly as was the chef/owner. only one big problem that spoilt the whole experience - the charge for a large glass of Pinot Grigio was £9.90p which was twice their standard measure price- the large measure that they provided was what we normally receive and not twice a standard measure. We queried this but were informed this was the correct price! We eat out about twice a week and this is the most expensive large glass of wine in Kent and London that we have come across - sadly, we will not go back.

We are glad you enjoyed so many asspects of your day such as the food and service.
Unfortunately when you asked for a large glass of wine we understood it as a double measure and gave you two of the standard measures of 175 ml of wine in a large glass which is maybe why you thought it was expensive.
If you would like to retry then please book up and we will be happy to offer you a complimentry glass of wine with your meal.
Kind regards,
Mucini.
