This restaurant was formerly known as Firenze, which over its 13 year lifespan carved out a reputation as one of the best Italian restaurants in the region. Now called The Lighthouse, the emphasis has changed slightly and the kitchen now focuses primarily on seafood.

Still run by Sarah Poli and her Italian husband and head chef Lino, the Kibworth Beauchamp venue prides itself on serving beautifully fresh fish and staying true to its previous standards, which became a benchmark for quality.

The menu features British classics, as well as holding true to Lino’s Mediterranean heritage; think lobster spaghetti, fabulous fillets of sea bass, potted shrimps and sublime fish ‘n’ chips. The aim is to create an affordable and relaxed restaurant.

There is also plenty to please meat eaters and vegetarians. And with Sarah and Lino’s close association with both Italian wine specialist Bat & Bottle and Market Harborough vino expert Duncan Murray, don’t expect an average wine list.

Promotions include ‘Nibbles and Tipples’ from 6pm, where diners can pop in and enjoy a selection of nibbles and a glass, or even a bottle, and still be curled up on the sofa at home by 9pm. And ‘The Captain’s Table’, where The Lighthouse team simply serve what they think are the best dishes available that night (from £37.50).

The Lighthouse is the sister restaurant of neighbouring Boboli of Kibworth Harcourt.

    Having been ardent fans of the sister restaurant, we were slow to try The Lighthouse. Our 1st visit was for my birthday in May, 4th visit tomorrow,( July)… can’t wait. As fish lovers, it’s a great joy to have such choice on menu. Owners and team are delightful, atmosphere and decor likewise…..What’s not to love. 10/10. Definitely our favourite restaurant…recommend it to everyone we know!! Don’t change a thing!! See you tomorrow.

    Great menu including the nibbles section to start, or share a selection. Highly recommend the twice cooked cheese soufflé with haddock. Friendly atmosphere and I have taken our children there and they are always welcome.

    In its new incarnation as a fish restaurant, The Lighthouse does not fail to impress. Having eaten here multiple times when it was Firenze, the standards and expectations had already been set high. Characteristically it didn’t disappoint – the food, atmosphere and service were all as great as ever and the new and what appears to be an ever changing menu is always full of mouthwatering dishes. In particular the nibbles section is perfect if, like me, you love to share lots of little bits and a good bottle of wine. The only downside is that it isn’t open at lunchtime, which for me would be a bonus, especially on a Saturday!
