A traditional taste

of Italy in the heart

of County Durham

A rustic dining experience right on your doorstep.

Expect a menu filled with honest, delicious food.

Traditional Italian cuisine is noted for its regional diversity, abundance of difference in taste, and it is probably the most popular in the world. Not only purveyors of authentic Italian cuisine, the Italian Farmhouse embraces the Italian way of life, enjoying a good old get together with family, friends and loved ones to savour classic dishes.

Authenticity is what inspires the flavours of the food on our plates at Italian Farmhouse West Rainton

At the Italian Farmhouse West Rainton, we take pride in the produce of our region, and we’ve taken to heart the Mediterranean practice of using what’s on our doorstep at.

Lots of our produce is sourced nearby – such as our white fish, which is landed on the North East coast, and our beef is reared on farms just up the road.

However, we know that only the best of Italian ingredients will do for our dishes to be truly authentic, therefore our produce is imported directly from the region that inspired it. This includes the very finest olive oil, risotto rice and cheese.
