Trattoria Italian Kitchen is a vibrant, restaurant, where contemporary design unites with casual Italian dining and a focus on sharing. Service is relaxed, knowledgeable and welcoming. The menu consists of traditional trattoria style cuisine - hand made pizzas, bruschetta, antipasto, pasta and meat platters, fresh fish and familiar Italian staple items like Forno Roasted Chicken and Veal Scaloppini with an aim to keep our menu items at $20 or less. A carefully chosen selection of 50 wines make up a list representing the major regions in Italy including Tuscany, Piedmont, Veneto and Sicily. Add in a few boutique California, and British Columbia wineries and you have the perfect combination of a simple, yet comprehensive wine selection.

Good food, Great service

Wine Wednesdays are highly recommended! The attentive server Trish divined our food preferences from one question we asked, and then she recommended a few menu items, served on a platter for fun. We were very happy with our meal!

A VERY high energy spot - sometimes too loud for me but it's always full. The food is great - no complaints at all and the quantities are typical Italian - lots! Great downtown spot for business or pleasure.

Beware of the appetizers: they're huge and you may not have enough room for the entrée! Service knew this and held off ordering the entrees: we were grateful since we were full with the generous appetizer which had about ten different Italian specialities. Wednesday's the bottles of wine are half price, so time your outing! The only drawback was the... More

It is one of the big chain with several locations in Vancouver. Quality of service has never failed. The menu is limited to pasta and pizza. Pasta is alwasy fresh and great. We have never tried pizza. You won't be able to order steak or salmon here. The setting is good for small group or couples. It is a bit... More

This is a great restaurant on 4th ave in Van. I liked the open kitchen and the smells of all the fantastic food hit you as soon as you walk in the door. Our server was great. Will return for sure.

The food is good, the service is good, but the acoustics are so terrible that you have to shout to be heard. I mean that literally, shout. I have left this restaurant with a hoarse throat after trying to have a conversation with the person sitting across the table. I imagine that there is some marketing reason for keeping things...

I came here with my friend for Pasta Tuesday. I ordered spaghetti with meatballs and it cost $11. It was tasty, but I wish they offered their old signature dish... spaghetti in truffle oil with wagyu meatballs. Anyways, if I had to eat here, I'd would only come on Tuesdays.

It was fine. Nothing special. My chicken parm was pretty pricey ($25 including pasta, or $20 for just the chicken and a tiny, oil-soaked salad), and very salty. Service was fine, atmosphere was decent. But, I don't know, I feel like Italian has so much potential to be AMAZING... I'm looking for thick, chewy, homemade pasta, rich sauces, homemade breads,...

A group of four of us had supper and each of us ordered a different meal. Everyone commented on the quality and portion sizes of the meals as well as the fact two meals were made with gluten free pasta with no drop off in taste.
