The seafood pasta dish was definitely poor.
The scallops shrimp had smell indicating they were not fresh. The pasta sauce for the seafood dish was like a bolenaise. Not the olive oil ,fresh herb, fresh tomato as indicated on the menu'
1 out of 10.
The veal limone was 7 out of 10.
Nice dish but a little more lemon flavor was needed.

My family and I have been going to Sicilian Pasta Kitchen for many years. The food has always been amazing and the restaurant and menu was always fresh. We chose them for Mother’s Day again this year and were actually disappointed. The food was mediocre at best. The most disappointing thing was the menu. It is stale! It’s the same thing with no new items. And the items that are on it were bland. They used to have one of the best Calamari’s in Edmonton..not anymore. The pasta dishes were nothing special. This is extremely disappointing as it has been a go to for my family for many years. The night was complimented with a very friendly server. She was very attentive to my three boys and was very personable. She obviously cares about the service she gives. I’m hoping that there is a revamp of their menu as the current one is way past due.

I found that the food was not hot and the chicken parm was dry and semi burnt. don't think you should be charging for coffee and juice every other restaurant when having a buffet never charge for juice nor coffee and your price is pretty steep. Didn't receive very good service always had to be looking for our waitress. Not happy with the overall experience. Would like to try your dinners if given a gift certificate.

We came in to celebrate our anniversary with friends. seated in a wonderful area, so I believe the noise wasn't as loud as if we would have been in the middle of the restaurant.
Our server that night was absolutely wonderful...courteous, on task, didn't have to aske her anything, prompt & friendly.
She should be your trainer for new hires.
lovely dining experience.

The food was the only good part of the experience. I used to go there all the time but it's been about 5 years. We got sat within arms reach of another table and felt like we were intruding on their personal space. We were pretty much sitting at their table. Asked to be moved and could tell the hostess was not pleased. Moved to another spot where I was back to back to another person. everytime she moved the whole cushion shifted. It was very uncomfortable. The food came fast and was good. Took 20 minutes for our waitress to bring our bill. Even though I had put it was my birthday on the reservation not one word was said about it. Though the table across from me had cake with a candle brought to them. Will definitely go somewhere else for my birthday next year.

We have been here several times recently and must say, although the servers have been very pleasant people, the service is very poor. To note, it is not the same server either time. We wait 10 minutes to get our drink, this last time our server mentioned after we waited for our plates to be picked up too long, she would grab the bill and payment machine. It was lunch time and only a few tables were in the restaurant so business was not a factor. The machine never came (15+ minutes) so we went up front to pay. Service is a large part of making a restaurant successful and although the food is excellent, we have had poor service the last 2-3 visits. If I was the owner, I would hire someone to remedy this and coach your servers on how to serve tables in a timely manner.

This is the second time in as many weeks we had dinner. The first was great the second disappointing. Our meal was cold the waitress was not attentive or we would have sent it back. Service was slow and the torte we had to go was so small for $8.00.

We have been to the restaurant many times. The food portions are always large and very tasty. This time the service was sub par. We got our drinks and salad very quickly but we waited well over an hour for our entrees. We had to wave down our server Jeff to enquire if there was problem. He did acknowledge that it was a long time to wait and he would go and check. About 5 minutes later we got our food.

Everything was great. Didn't enjoy my meal as much as I have in the past visits, but only because my choice wasn't something that suited my tastebuds.
But everything else was fantastic!!

Always a great dinner at Sicilian. Food was delicious, service great and featured win very tasty. This has been our "birthday" dinner place for a few years. Have to admit we go even if it isn't someone's birthday. My favorite is the Sunday family style pasta bowl.

I recommended Sicilian Pasta Kitchen to a couple of new acquaintances, and I'm happy to say that it did not disappoint, as always. The food wasn't quite as hot as I've experienced in past visits, and the service was not quite as attentive and exceptional as the last time I was there a few weeks ago, but overall the food was excellent, and the service was good. My new friends were happy, and we had a very enjoyable evening.

Food was amazing. The reason for only 3 stars was that the server (Oliver, I think) completely forgot about our appetizer, which is an honest mistake, however he only apologized once when we mentioned he forgot it. It was quite odd because he wrote everything down. The sole apology we got was a ”sorry” then he left. Being a server myself I understand that this stuff happens, but a sincere apology would have been all I needed. I also am aware that typically servers are able to discount the dinner at least a small percentage or pay for one or two of the drinks if you clearly mess up; however we really had nothing to compensate besides the empty room in our stomachs. Also, for context he only had 2-3 tables at the time and was clearly not very busy. I would go again, I’m probably just bitter because I know how this industry works and the service I got put a bad taste in my mouth the night of an anniversary.

Have been going to SPK South for years. You can’t go wrong with most dishes, especially any pasta offering or pizza. I believe the main entrees are a bit overpriced for what you get. The servers are always great.

Service from the kitchen was extremely slow. The veal was over cooked and tough, fish was over cooked and dry. The mussels were mushy & the server that brought out my meal called it the wrong thing and resulted in someone started on my meal before the error was discovered. As it took over 90mins to get our main courses I just ate what I got. The server didn't check the bill for deleted items until I caught the error. Will not be returning.
