I was 20 mins early for my reservation for 630. It was my birthday that day. I did call prior just to let them know I might be late. I was informed if im late 15mins after the initial booking. I will be moved to the bottom of the list. This perhaps is a standard policy but im not happy with the way it was convyed. Overall my experience was good.

Initially I had open table open about to complete my reservation, but thought I'd opt to call in to make a reservation. Whoever answered the phone said there was no availability, which was odd because I was able to complete the reservation. Not sure how open table works though ... happy we were able to squeeze in though.
Once we got there, we ordered my favorite appetizer that I had eaten there quite a few times when I lived in Vancouver; Prosciutto and Burrata. The Burrata and pesto were lovely, but the prosciutto was cut too thick, or was just a really tough piece (I know odd - prosciutto usually melts in your mouth!!).
Even though that could have left a bad experience, the manager and server were both very apologetic and the manager said it will be fixed for the next night. They removed the whole appetizer and gave us a small portion of meatballs compliments of the house! So unexpected and above and beyond! Very much appreciated!
You can tell that this restaurants stands behind their food. and thrives on local clientele.
The truffle cream pasta with meatballs is amazing!

Trattoria Italian Kitchen sits just across the road from our favorite Italian restaurant in Kits. We selected Trattoria Italian Kitchen restaurant because it was open late, and we were able to make a 10:30pm reservation for our group, not to mention the good recommendation. We arrived 30 minutes late, but we were seated in time before last call.

Our sever was friendly, very courteous and knowledgeable. He was able to explain the menu and also recommend the vegan and gluten free options that some the members of our group were interested.

Our pleasant surprise was the food. It was tasty, fresh and of good quality. The preparation was impeccable. These people know their stuff and kudos to the kitchen staff.

We are glad to say that our first experience in this restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Needless to say, we will be coming back for more!

Maybe I just ordered wrong things. I don't know why here is rated a high score.(4 stars is high in my eye) I ordered a pasta with shrimps, which were too salty. The pasta itself was also not surprising. The only thing we found good could be the chicken breast; however, why should I come to an italian restaurant for chicken?

Good happy hour specials. Reasonably priced wine list. Had the pasta platter but should have gone with the truffled spaghetti with meatballs as that was the best thing on the plate. Pleased with service. Got there early before Bard on the Beach and noticed lots of families so must be good for kids.

Had yet another exceptional meal at Trattoria in Kits. The antipasti platter for two was fabulous, as was the caprese salad with burrata. So flavourful and fresh. Our pasta dishes (meatballs, shortribs and mushroom/pancetta) were all ten out of ten. Our server, Nicholas, was an absolute pro and provided impeccable service. We were not rushed despite the fact it was a busy Saturday night. On the contrary, we felt very well looked after. I look forward to returning soon for Trattoria's consistently excellent Italian cuisine and first-class service.

It was strange that the person delivering our food stated our food was coming out as soon as it was made..? Other than that it was excellent. The Brussel sprouts are not to be missed!

The service was great. Waiter was attentive , kind and very flexible despite my 3 children. The kids menu was good. The adult food was bland. I was expecting much more flavor for an Italian restaurant. My meatballs had a lot of bread filling and barely any flavor. My husbands Eggplant Parmesan was just okay. On the other hand my relative's blue cheese risotto with lamb was very good.

We started with a caprese salad and staff and was kind enough to split it in two for us. I had veal piccata which was very good and my husband had veal Marsala. He found his veal a bit tough and left one that we took home for pup. We really enjoyed the Italian donuts. They are a piece of heaven.

My husband was happy with his spaghetti and meatballs. The veal piccata I had was practically inedible. They serve it with roasted Brussels sprouts and capers. How can one go wrong with veal, Brussels and capers?
First attempt: the Brussels and capers where so badly burnt that the veal tasted burnt. Second attempt: only slightly less burnt. In both cases the veal was tough.
It was hubbys birthday and it was now going on for ten and I still hadn't had food that was edible!
After paying and with hubby safely out of ear shot ( I didn't want to spoil his night further)
I had a word with our server ( who should have realised that both plates were sent back nearly uneaten). He did give me $35 gift card and listened sympathetically. Thankfully the gift card has some other locations as I would not be using it at Tratorria Italian Kitchen.

Our server was very nice and professional . He doubled as the bartender as well. The food was delicious and my cocktail was fantastic. My husband's meal was not very warm the first time it was brought to the table and the garlic bread he ordered to eat with his pasta didn't come. He had to ask one of the other servers to see about the bread. By this time his meal was cold and so, asked if his food could be reheated. Understandably, it couldn't be due to food safety reasons. Our server came to our table to check on us. We told him about the situation. He promptly took my husband's plate and replaced it with a new and hot plate of pasta. However, this time again, the order of garlic bread didn't come. We got our server's attention and asked about the garlic bread 10 min after the pasta was brought to the table. He apologized for the delay and mix up in the kitchen. The bread was finally brought to our table. Our server profusely apologized and told us that my husband's meal was on the house.

We've been to Trattoria six times and have always enjoyed it. On our last visit, we had the restaurant mostly to ourselves because everyone was sitting on the patio. Our service was extremely prompt and the server was very friendly. I was the only one who felt his entree wasn't excellent. It was very tasty but the penne was way too al dente for me. We'll definitely go back as Trattoria is one of our favourite places in Kitsilano.
