Always hesitant when a concierge gives a rave review about a place, especially when Trip Advisor doesn't rank it in the top 20 in the city. We wanted Italian and off we went. Dressier and somewhat European feeling, the place has a sleek modern look with a quant outdoor patio. Service was great, attentive and candid. The dishes we were... More

The Italian Kitchen is an upscale restaurant in the downtown area of Vancouver. Not only was the food great but if you can manage to sit in Erenee's section, you will be treated to a time you won't soon forget. Every restaurant should have an Erenee...she is an exuberant, outgoing server who truly enjoys her job and it shows. She... More

It's a really good restaurant for a decent meal. They have options of sharing food which is great if you want to taste different pasta/ meats. We tried the paste platter which was really good ( except one pasta, which was just pasta and tomato sauce) and got a side of fried brussel sprouts which tasted super delicious. I highly... More

We got takeout one night from this restaurant. It was incredibly busy with lots of people picking up catering orders and sitting down to eat. Food came quickly and was good, a little too garlicky for the Alfredo sauce but nevertheless, tasty. The prices are a bit high for basic items ($17 for spaghetti?). The only thing that turned us...

We love Italian food,and had read some reviews about his restaurant. We were not disappointed. We like to eat early in the evening, like lots of people, the restaurant was busy,but we we quickly shown to a table, and offered drinks and nibbles at once. We sat with views of the kitchen so could see the pressure the staff were... More

Not fancy by any means but good quality Italian food. The service is a bit dismissive but the food makes up for it

Recommended by the hotel for late night dining. At first we were NOT impressed with the service...and felt like we were being ignored in a half empty restaurant at 10:30 at night. As soon as the wait staff realized, however, that they had messed up, they bent over backwards to make us happy. Complimentary champagne and appetizers were graciously offered... More

Great location - in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Love the atmosphere - feels alive - the staff is very friendly. The food is good - above average. Good value for your money.

We travel to Vancouver often and I have to say this is the best restaurant we have been to. Ask for Thomas from Australia as a server as he was just a delight! The food was superb, very fresh and tasty. Highly recommend!

Do make reservations for dinner as this is a busy place. The service and food were outstanding. We recommend the pasta platter to share with two or more people - each of the four pastas was unique and delicious. The lamb chops special and gnocchi were also divine. If you are looking for tasty pasta do check this place out.... More
