Italian Kitchen - Vancouver
Need to book at 7:00 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Love the ambience , hope they never move
This restaurant is top on my list to eat at when I am visiting Vancouver. The food is superb, the staff are very friendly and the overall ambiance is great. Highly recommend Italian Kitchen for a night out with friends or for a date. Bon Appetito!
My wife and I love this place! The food was really nice. The staffs were so kind and welcoming. The only downside I could see was that it was a bit noisy since there were a lot of people talking. It was understandable though. We are definitely looking forward to our next visit!
Service was great. Truffle meat ball Pasta is a must to try.
Was Excited To Eat Here Again, I Believe Our Server Had Better Things To Be Doing That Day And The Food Was No Where Near What I Remember It Bring, Hopefully Better Luck Next Time
My friend and I had an excellent time. She has been previously and wanted me to experience the restaurant. The food was excellent and serving portion was large. Service was very good and our server checked on us at appropriate times during the meal!
Lovely place for a lunch date with family or friends. The service is excellent as always.
Excellent service and food
Underwhelming, disappointing dining experience.
Service standards poor. Food just ok. Our waitress was stressed & inattentive to us. A special occasion turned horribly wrong which put a damper on our evening.. I wouldn’t recommend and with so many other fabulous restaurants in Vancouver... I doubt I’ll return.
Casual outing with wifey good food nice restaurant
The food & service was excellent. Prices were very reasonable. Overall excellent experience. Both my guests & I enjoyed the experience.
Enjoyable and tasty food. A bit expensive but probably in line with Downtown Vancouver prices.
Service is too pushy, give you customers a bit more breathing space and don’t put the bill/check on the table just because they declined a dessert.
The antipasto platter was amazing! It was greater than the main dish (pasta platter). I was expecting a lot from truffle spaghetti, the meatballs were dry, the seafood spaghetti was not a surprise, and the mushroom gnocchi was the best one within the 3 pastas
They were really aggressive in trying to get us out of the restaurant after our meal was done. Essentially brought the bill and also brought the cc processing machine and kept hovering around the table awaiting payment. Never had that type of an experience in any other local restaurants
This was my first time to Italian Kitchen's new location on Burrard Street, it was super busy! Their Fixe Price Menu for $45.00 was very good value, the mozzarella tasting was so delicious. And our server was the best, she was so personable and energetic, she made the night special.
I came here with my teenaged son. The plus: I loved the antipasto plate we ordered, and the entrees were good, although not as good as the appetizer. My drinks were also nice. Our server was excellent, and the manager was solicitous. My one critique was that they put us in the back of the restaurant when it was not yet particularly full, with families that had babies and small children; a teenager isn’t in the same category.
The service was excellent and the food was very good.
Food took too long to come. No Heineken as a choice for a beer. (#1 import beer in the world).
Everything was just perfect. She celebrated national boyfriend day for me lol
Great place for foodies who love Italian. A little loud though, not good for intimate conversation
Food was terrific and our server was excellent. There was a bit of a delay between our main meal and dessert but it was worth the wait. Thanks!
Always love the Italian Kitchen! Consistently great food.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are thrilled you enjoyed your meal with us! We do hope to have you join us again soon!
Had duck. Breast was tough and dry. Vegetables were not el dante there raw. The leg was very moist. Servers were exceptionally nice and friendly. All seemed very trained very well. I saw one man scoop his glass in the ice so I asked who that was. It was one of the owners. If has that low a regard for my safety that I can see what else is he doing? I will not be back.
Had the seafood salad twice before and it was excellent the first time, very good the second time, and at this visit, it was disappointing. The prawns and scallops were not cooked to order. It tasted like they were cooked hours ago and left in a heater til ready to use. For the price paid, would have expected the seafood to be cooked to order.
Luvtoeat- Thank you for your continued patronage and for taking the time to leave us feedback. We are disappointed and apologize that you did not enjoy your seafood salad this time around. We have forwarded your candid comments to our culinary team so that preparations can be reviewed.
First time at this restaurant recommended by a friend.
Very good restaurant, the service was very good, the food was very good and the dessert was excellent. We wait 20 minutes for dessert but it;s worth it.
Great food and atmosphere! Service was excellent.
Too much red meat in choices, created a very limited menu for myself.
Calamari,Veal, gnocchi & Seafood pasta outstanding!! Bar service excellent! Value for food was excellent!
The noise level was major problem for caring on conversation!
Amazing food and the service is great. Really nice staff, they always seemed to come to us in a break in the conversations and we never felt interrupted. It is busy and has a good atmosphere but you don't need to raise your voice to have a romantic meal.
StephenM - Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are very happy to hear your enjoyed your food and service! We do hope to have you join us again soon.
Bad service. Server had no manners. Not very helpful. Cleaned a spot off of the plate and with his finger. Parking validation didn’t work!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. At Italian Kitchen we are known for having a great food, service and atmosphere. Clearly we failed to meet your expectations and ours as well and for that we are truly sorry. Please if you have a moment to spare email email@example.com a provide more detailed feedback, it would be greatly appreciated.
As always Italian Kitchen did not fail to exceed expectation. This was my guest's first visit to The Italian Kitchen and she just loved it. Thank you for a great experience.
Excellent staff and very good food
Average every thing.....!
I sat at the bar,the bar,it was chaotic.
Given the choice in Vancouver I would put this restaurant fairly low on the must go list....
I made reservations well in advance, but the front receptionist had me sit at the bar with my date. We had to wait almost 15 minutes for our table. Our waiter was interesting, he seemed a bit overwhelmed and confused with the menu. Was not the best experience
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.
CharlieD- Thank you for dining with us at Italian Kitchen. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your experience and look forward to seeing you again soon!
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
