Italian Kitchen - Vancouver Ratings and Reviews
We went there from time to time. Food is alright and service usually is really attentive. I think it is kinda busy there tonight ( Sunday Oct 22,2017), the waiter keep rushing us to order the main course even we told him 3 times that one of our friend isn't arrived yet. And we do order a bottle of wine and 3 appetites already. Really disappointed
Enjoyed our dinner and a nice bottle of wine. Everything would have been terrific if the waiter had been a little assuming. He presented us with our bill all neatly divided into 3 separate checks with out asking. I can only imagined why he thought that was necessary even though it was clear we were celebrating someone. Very rude assumption I thought.
We went recently to celebrate our anniversary, if you want an intimate date night I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. We had to yell across the table to have any sort of conversation it was very loud. Lots of hustle and bustle in a tight space. We ordered the Antipasto Rustico to start and found the cheeses to be very bland. BUT our dinner was amazing and would go back for sure! Great for a fun night out with a group.
Service was very slow - granted it was Saturday evening but one would think this might be typical and the powers that be would plan accordingly.
We were seated upstairs where the noise level ensured that a 60 decibel 'normal' conversation wasn't going to happen. It was closer to that of a leaf blower. Considering that our group can be loud, and we're also very tolerant we found this verging on too much.
Would I go back? Absolutely, because I love the food. Just have to remember to ask to be seated downstairs where the leaf blowers are dialed back substantially.
Service wasn't bad But it wasn't good either! Every other table had bread but we were forgotten I guess unless one must ask specifically for bread in this restaurant. Food required salt! Everything I ate was tasteless and probably the most expensive of their menu. We made a reservation days ago but we were placed in the middle of a busy loud room. If I visited Vancouver again I sure I would spend my money elsewhere!!
Went to the Italian Kitchen for a birthday date. The host and our server was amazing, so nice and friendly. It was a busy Sunday night with a big birthday group on one side of the restaurant so we had to wait about 30 - 40 mins for our appetizer and another 20 mins for our entree.
My significant other's dish was nice and hot while my dish was a bit too al dente and not quite as hot. It was an overall good experience for the both of us but was just a tad bit disappointed.
One server was rude and unresponsive to our request to address the cold evening breeze from open windows on 2nd floor.
Very loud cavernous space that affected our ability to carry a conversation at our table.
Would not recommend this restaurant as the food service was terribly slow and not exceptional Italian to merit returning.
After an excellent meal with great service a week earlier we were disappointed with our second visit. The staff on this occasion did not appear to be well trained- too many people coming and going without a great deal of skill in service : - wine glasses taken away when we ordered cocktails; we were informed the fish of the day was not on the menu after we had ordered it; when requested the wine list sat on the table and there was no follow up until the food arrived, water glasses were not replenished during the meal. Given the quality of the food and the excellent venue the service let you down.
We were a party of six. A big variety was ordered and everyone enjoyed their meal. I shared the pasta platter and it was fabulous. Favourite one was the "truffle" with meatballs. Calamari to start was a good choice. My one criticism is that they make you pay for bread.
Service was superb. The waiter and hosts attended to every detail, from noting our anniversary to finding a spot on my husband's champagne glass. The staff makes you feel welcome. However, it would be nice if the hostesses at the front said good-bye's and thank you's. This is something that all restaurants don't think of (except for Japanese restaurants). The food was excellent as usual. Ambience was vibrant and elegant . Italian Kitchen is always our favourite for special occasions.
This was our second visit to this restaurant. In both cases the food was great. We felt rushed in that the server brought our food before we could even wind down. Then we needed to ask for items such as a serving of bread with olive oil. To top it off the cappuccino served after our meal was mildly warm. Overall a little disappointing after all the fanfare.
The service was great. The food was too salty and the sauce was watery. Would have thought better for such a restaurant. We used to love coming here and just recently thought we would try it again. But don't think we would be coming back again. The table next to us had a crying baby for a good part of our lunch. Better when they finally left.
The experience was perfectly fine but not at all special or unique. I had the Chicken Piccata and while it tasted OK, it was not lemony and light - like I typically expect that dish to be prepared. We also started with a Caprese salad, which was full of very cold tomatoes so they were not flavorful at all - even thought it's late summer and they should be ripe and flavorful. There was ONE spec of basil on the top. We sat upstairs which felt like a cafeteria to me - too many tables, lined up too close together - which also made for a lot of noise. The bright spot was the service, which was very nice and friendly.
It was so hot in the restaurant it was hard to enjoy the fabulous food. I just wanted to get out of there it was so stuffy and the tables were too tight and squishy. The overhead lights were so hot on us we had to move tables. The food was awesome but not enough to come back to the stuffy atmosphere
My husband's salmon was tough and not tasty...manager did remove from bill; but, waiter did not even ask about the meal, despite the fact a large piece of the salmon was left on the plate...Dessert...ice cream that did not identify the coffee content on the menu...The service by the manager and another employee who came to check on the quality of the dessert were most professional -- and we greatly appreciate their efforts.
