    We have recently moved to Vernon from out East and tried this fantastic restaurant ~ boy oh boy what great food. Not only delicious but presentation is also formidable. Very generous portions, but not such that one is uncomfortable. Desserts are to die for, especially the Tirramisou. Having done a fair amount of travelling both in Canada, the U.S., and Italy and having eaten in many Italian Food restaurants, The Italian Kitchen is by far the best we have ever experienced. Recently took guests from out East there for dinner and they want to go back again before they leave, they were so impressed. Recommend this place very highly if you are looking for stupendous Italian food. Prices conform with quality and service is great.

    The food was pretty decent and at average price for fine dining. Decent wine list, however I prefer "girly drinks" and when I mentioned that to my server, she had the bartender make sangria just for me!

    Had high hopes as it was recommended by friends and its a cool little place. Two of us thought it was "ok"' the other two had no comment. Doubtful we will return.

    The food was excellent and had enough variety to please everyone at the table even the kids. The service was prompt and attentive to our needs. When we decided that bread would be a welcome addition to our meal it appeared within minutes.

    My husband's chicken parmesan was delicious and for my entrée I ordered the Lamb shank which was beautifully done (melt in your mouth) and the vegetables were grilled perfectly (still slightly crispy). The only complaint I would have is that the risotto was pasty and the rice not quite cooked. As this was a date night (a break from a two year old) we were slightly disappointed with the amount of children that were present and would have preferred a more romantic ambience as we did feel it was a bit noisy. Although our reservation was on a Friday evening, 7pm we did feel the service was a bit slow as the initial dinner rush would have been over. All in all we enjoyed ourselves and next time I will order more Italian, with a pasta dish.

    We found the meals very good, nice presentation, very flavourful the music was to high to carry on a conversation, we asked to have the volume lowered and it was lowered slightly. As the evening progressed the air conditioning could not keep up and it should be looked into to keep the patrons comfortable while they dine.

    Service was good, friendly, fast and responsive. However we went one time before and this time found the food to be far less enjoyable than before. Appetizer (bruschetta) was just a large piece of cold bread with a little topping. Entries were acceptable. Doubtful will return.

    The atmosphere was great and the food was superb. The family enjoyed it and we will return for another night out when we return to Vernon. This Albertan family will be letting other know about our experience.
