Very good service

Very good service (speedy and friendly and knowledgable about the area for tourists). I Had the Spagetti bolonaise. Good portion size. Pasta Carbonara was also a good size apart from when you want to add a chicken breast to it (very small size) they charge an extra $9!

wow. That Truffle and meatball pasta is really to die for. We had a shared pasta platter; far too indulgent. There was only two of us. Three, maybe even four. If you had an entree, could have done it justice. Service was outstanding.

Service was great, we only ordered mains and it took 40 minutes, on a Monday evening! Very disappointing. Had the braised lamb , it was very tender but quite bland and the sauce was very runny , polenta was good, the purée was also bland. Not sure if I will go back.

We went here for dinner one night and I had the prawns with my salad and I have to say they were the best prawns I have ever had. They were huge and were not farmed. The food was great and our server was spectacular. Parking was pretty tough as it was busy around town, so we opted to valet... More

We had an amazing dinner at Italian Kitchen last weekend. This restaurant is an excellent example of turning what could be a very bad experience into a great one! Our table ordered our dinners and when they arrived there was a problem with my order. I ordered their signature truffled spaghetti & meatballs, but when I cut into my meatball... More

Love the Italian Kitchen and try to make it there as often as possible, the service is always excellent as is the food. We celebrated our wedding anniversary last Friday night and had wonderful service. Our waiter John (super nice!) even gave us champagne and dessert... we will be back soon, certainly before next June!

We wanted t find a restaurant close to our hotel since we were exhausted from traveling. We found the Italian Kitchen and were very pleased. I read reviews about the truffle spaghetti and meatballs and were not disappointed. The pasta portion looked small but it is very rich and I could not finish it after have appetizers. I had the...

Great food but rather noisy, unless you like that sort of ambiance. A very popular and busy place so reservations are a must. Reliably delicious, friendly staff!

Ask Joe at the bar to just feed and wine you. Joe is one of the lost knowledgable food and wine guys that I've met in vancouver. I tried to catch him on some sleeper obscure italian varietals that i know well and he knew more than i did about every one of them. He has lived a number of... More
