I went there for mothers day & even though they were not busy, our waitress kept forgetting things & service was super slow. Food is very mediocre & not worth the price.

I took my wife here for her birthday dinner expecting it to be good, but had no idea it would of been as good as it actually was. Service was as good as it gets, the restaurant was clean and very comfortable to be in, and most importantly the food was exceptional. Couldn’t of asked for a better place to take her for her birthday.

We were pleased with our dining experience. We had Eliza as our server. She was very welcoming and made great suggestions. I had a wonderful pasta dish and my husband had veal scallopini. We shared a lovely caprese salad. I had a glass of an Italian white wine which was excellent. I would highly recommend Italian Kitchen!!

I really enjoy the visit to Italian Kitchen. The food is amazing like if you were in Italy. The cocktails are good and they have a good selection of wines. I still find the it is a little bit pricy compare to other excellent Italian restaurants, nevertheless the service was amazing. I will go back very soon.

This restaurant was highly recommended and it lived up to its reputation. We immediately felt welcomed and were impressed with the prompt response to our table. The server was right on with his recommendations of the Panzanella Caprese with mouth-watering tomatoes. The Gnocchi Funghi's was delicate and flavorful. When asked for help in choosing between the salmon and sablefish, the server said let me bring you what I think is best and he was right on with his selection-the sablefish was superb. Definitely a restaurant to return to.

The service was stunning. The desserts were tasty too. However, the appetizer and main course were not good, the salami and pork tasted like raw meat, parma's fat had an odd texture and it goes on.

We have forwarded your candid comments to our culinary team so that presentation and preparations can be reviewed as that is not how our prosciutto and salami usually tastes.

The menu choices changed since our last meal at the restaurant. My husband wanted a pasta dish, and chose seafood linguine, but wanted more seafood selection in it, and was disappointed in the way it was prepared.i had the salmon, and it was great.

The food was good ( just good ) not great .. the place is nice .. the staff was nice... nothing that you can’t eat elsewhere .. price was high considering the food was just “good”.. I don’t mind paying a little extra when the food is great but for me that was not the case.. the reviews on yelp and TripAdvisor hype this place up too much however the restaurants atmosphere was good.

The food was superb.
Our server messed up one of our dinners (a pasta) which took 25 minutes to bring the correct meal. They brought a nice salad in the mean time and comped us a dessert. It however, really threw off the dinner.
The robo call I got the next day from them advertising the restaurant was a special treat.

I came here with my boyfriend for our anniversary and the staff was so friendly and our waitor was amazing and he made great suggestions. I’ve already recommended friends to come check it out! I’ll definitely be coming back in the future, I didn’t get to try dessert so I’m excited to come back for it. We had the calamari as an appetizer and it is hands down the best calamari I’ve had. I’d reccomend that and be truffle spaghetti!

Our experience at dinner was nothing more than normal. My calamari was not very good, over cooked and more batter that calamari. My sea bass as a main course was just okay.
