Italian Kitchen - Vancouver
I keep trying to order somethingI keep trying to order something other than the carbonara, but it's so good!12/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for my husband'sWent there for my husband's birthday with the kids. Our waitress was wonderful, no fakeness about her, seemed genuine. Food was very good, the kids liked as well. Overall very good experience.11/3/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great, theEverything was great, the pastas are to die for.. The only
Thing that I want to bring up is that our waiter , the male who was actually wearing a white apron not the other ones in suits, was not
Very approachable. He didn't talk much or try to engage us in any conversation, it's not a big issue
Or a problem but it made it a bit awkward at times because he didn't talk or smile. My friends actually tried to engage in a conversation
With him so it wouldn't be so awakard but he didn't respond.9/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect place for delicious,Perfect place for delicious, reasonably priced Italian food!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening, yet again.I've been to IK many times, and I'm impressed by the quality of attentiveness and friendliness of the staff, every member will walk around, and notice anything that needs addressing and either do it there and then or send someone over. It has a great vibe and a wide range of clientèle, ranging from the retired baby boomers have a quiet meal to a large gaggle of ladies on their stagette. The place handles the excitement well and proved not to be too loud.
I will be back,6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Italian KitchenI've been here a few times for various functions! The food is always outstanding and the service impeccable.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time for dinnerFood was fabulous and plentiful. Service was excellent. Recommend a reservation if you plan to visit.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMYou can't go wrong with panchetta!I'd recommend the fusili lunghi. It's fusili in oregano cream and panchetta. The fusili was firm, so if you like softer noodles, request to have them cooked longer. My friend raved about the Ochi from lupo, but I didn't find it that satisfying despite of t lamb and sausage. My other friend didn't like her margherita pizza. I didn't like it either. The ingredients were fresh, but it was bland. Italian Kitchen did call me for feedback and they are taking care of the pizza the next time I'm in there.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat new experience.First time coming to this restaurant,, which just happened to be on a holiday. The atmosphere was pleasant and servers were very friendly. The menus had good variety and the large wine menu definitely caught my attention. We had appetizers, pastas, wine, and dessert. The food was very good, but the dessert at the end was definitely the best part of the night. I highly recommend giving this restaurant a try!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, againThis was our second time eating at Italian Kitchen. We had the pasta platter, a good way to try 4 different types of pasta. Daniel was our waiter that evening, and he was very accommodating to our requests. We will definitely eat at Italian Kitchen when we visit Vancouver again, and try the rest of Glowbal's restaurants.
We have to mention something about the noise level - it was energetic, but one table (actually, it was one man) made it very unpleasant by talking (more like shouting) very loudly. We could see other patrons were not pleased either.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI have sampled several ofI have sampled several of the Italian Kitchen's pasta dishes over the past few years and all have been excellent. My favourite is still the spaghetti with their signature meatballs. The staff are upbeat, friendly and courteous. At lunch time, if you are in a hurry, they can get you in and out in less than an hour even if you don't order the items which they promise a 45 minute turn around time for. That said, if you have time, savour the food and pair it with a glass (or two) of wine from their many selections.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYummiest Pasta!Went for a pre-show dinner here and ordered the pasta platter for the 3 of us. We only managed to eat half of the platter, but all the pasta was really good, especially the pesto gnocchi & linguine gamberi! And the meatballs were awesome! We got to chatting a bit and unfortunately learned that the meatballs are best eaten when hot! The only thing that prevented a full 5 stars was the spacing around our table was a bit squishy and we are by no means large people! We were seated downstairs so maybe upstairs is a little roomier?5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat way to spend a FridayGreat way to spend a Friday afternoon. Bolognese was superb.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the meatballsHave the truffle spaghetti and special meatballs. I have it every time I come into town. Have never been disappointed.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWay Too LoudOur party of four were seated next to three people who were extremely loud and loud - did I mention loud? Really took awya from n otherwise great evening. I would have thought that the waiter might ask them to quiet down a bit but that didnt happen. BTW - your noise level scale should have on higher than "energetic" - that being so loud it takes away from the experience.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent!I've been to Italian Kitchen a few times now since moving back to Vancouver and it is fast becoming my favorite place. Whether its dinner our with my wife or family or a business lunch I can be comforted in my knowledge that the level of service and cuisine is not going to waiver.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSharing Platter portions are huge!The food has ALWAYS been delicious! Brussel Sprouts are ridiculous & addictive! I ordered a platter for 4 people. There was so much food... could have fed 8 people! We had leftovers the next night & we still had leftovers!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved Italian kitchen! AndLoved Italian kitchen! And they have gluten free options!
