Italian Kitchen - Vancouver
Food was ok— service was just adequate. Tiramisu tasted slightly of lemon?! Nah!
The food was passable, but then again, I have eaten in a lot of restaurants with less "flair" with better food. I will not return, nor would I recommend The Italian Kitchen. My concern lies elsewhere. I fully understand that each and every table in a restaurant in a similar location commands a high dollar value so it is in the restaurant's "bottom line" interests to cram as many tables into its space as possible. It certainly isn't in the interests of the customer. I took my wife for an intimate dinner but sadly, I had to share that intimacy with the table next to us. When the server has trouble maneuvering between tables because of space, it is then that I realize I should have picked a different restaurant. My partner and I may have lost the ambiance but we would have made up for it in intimacy. Sorry Italian Kitchen, you certainly didn't knock it out of the park of us. We won't be returning, and it is very unlikely I would ever recommend the Italian Kitchen to friends.
Heard about Italian Kitchen from a friend. The visit, experience, food was all excellent. Would not hesitate recommending Italian Kitchen to friends and family.
Classy place that still places your napkin, provides bread and oil, changes cutlery to match your food, decant your wine and prepares food with sauces.
Good experience overall, waited a fair while for service but was very good once received, food was very good and very quick once ordered
Meatballs and halibut were really dry. Prosciutto appetizer was delicious and service was great
Great food and service
The new location is beautiful and more inviting than its previous location. The menu is consistently good and the service was good.
Excellent overall experience with great service.
Waiter was very nice. Best salad I have had in a long time. The spaghetti with truffle sauce is so satisfying.
Within two weeks we ate there two times. Both times the food en service wat great. Whe highly recommandeer thuis place. Value for money. We Will be back.
Ronald S- Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We greatly appreciate your continued patronage, support & recommendation. We are happy to read that our team has continually executed quality up to your standards. We look forward to having you join us again soon!
Enjoyable experience, found it odd that they didn’t have bread to make toast especially when I was having breakfast. Had a scone...
Order the bruschetta and prosciutto, eggplant parm ravioli, and the halibut. Everything tasted amazing and the service was superb! Will definitely be coming back.
All was great.
Always a go to when in Vancouver
Great food. Decent service. However, don’t expect them to do anything for your special occasion. We will consider other restaurants in the future for special occasion.
Consider another restaurant for any special occasion because they won’t care.
Incredible food! Excellent service! Best spaghetti and meatballs I’ve ever had!
Took my husband here for his birthday and he loved it. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to take him. Food was amazing. Lived up to the standards and they were so kind they surprised him with a cake. Can’t wait to go back and try other dishes.
The side of vegetables was a work of art. Our pastas were delicious. And the house made focaccia was a real treat. Made our one night in Vancouver truly memorable.
Excellent food & service with affordable prices & good servings.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Vancouver. Beautiful ambiance, wonderful food, great location and some lunch specials too.
4 of us ate at the Italian Kitchen, it was a lovely atmosphere The food was good, plenty of choices and the staff were very friendly too. Would definitely recommend.
The food was very good, the service was excellent. Bread was served with the meal, also very good. We will return.
Great food even though it was a limited menu the food was prepared to perfection and great service.
Delicious food and great service. Very noisy when we were there.
Everything was perfect!!
tout était parfait mais les coquilles St Jacques un peu trop cuites, trop de capres, d'ou gout trop dominant et salé
Good quality food and service. One of my go to place for Italian food.
Great services, tasty food, nice environment!
We had a great meal. This was the 2nd time we went and it was a special meal as we had family leaving who had been on holiday. High end and expensive but very good.
love the food，it was great, love the service
I found the menu to be very limited, not much for appetizers. The amount I paid for dinner was not acceptable for the meal I was served. My drink was heavily watered down with ice leaving very little taste. I most likely would not visit this location again. My friends I was dining with asked to sweeten their drinks, our waiter brought over syrup to add to their drinks however did not provide anything to mix it with. So we were left to mix it using a butter knife. He simply smiled when he saw us using the knife.
They were busy and it took about 15 minutes for our server to greet us. However, he was great! The mista salad was tasty but a bit limp. We had the salted Mediterranean Sea bass which was amazing.
We were looking for a good Italian dinner to end our 10 day vacation. When I was looking up menus and reviews we decided to go since we had nothing to go on but others experiences and WOW! All 4 of us had great wine, food and a waiter that was a gem. I would highly recommend Italian Kitchen to anyone.
Great evening. Accommodating service. Very thoughtful dessert to celebrate a birthday. Will be back. Much quieter than their previous venue.
After much time we had to ask to order drinks and again later to place our food order. We ended up asking the gal that brought our amouse bouche because our waitress hadn’t returned to take our order. Not even a check into see if we were ready. Had sparkling water that when being poured splashed everywhere including my guest and was topped up with tap water even though a bottle of sparkling still sat at the table. We knew we wanted to relax and not have a rushed lunch but this went beyond. We felt as if we had been forgotten about.
I had lunch at your restaurant last week and had a very good experience.
We had scallops and veal scallopini. Both were outstanding — delicious and well presented. Wine selection was varied, with many unusual choices.
It was my first time at this restaurant although I had been in the establishment when occupied by a previous restaurant. The atmosphere for lunch was light and bright and there's nice separation of the tables for a bit of privacy and ease of conversation. The service was very good and the pasta dish I had was very tasty. The Limoncello Lava Cake for dessert was scrumptious too. A very delightful dining experience.
Food was marvelous as always, but I never had a poorest service as that time.
Thank you for making our anniversary a special evening! The food and service was fantastic.
