Consistently excellent Italian food and the service is better than anything in Italy!

We live very close to Italian Kitchen and seem to find ourselves in there once a week or so. Always good, always on top of their game - we have never had an unsatisfactory dining experience. Solid, unpretentious Italian dining.

I've eaten at this restaurant several times now, so I must write a review to let others know how amazing this place is. Their brunch menu is to die for, so many options and the service is fantastic! We were just there 2 weeks ago and happened to have an exceptional weekend weather wise, so we were fortunate enough to... More

Great downtown location, although street parking tricky and valet not always easy! Dark interior downstairs, music loud. No greeters upstairs where ambiance is also loud as business lunches rule! Brighter with street view and food good, but hard to be heard in conversation which makes for a stressful experience.

Service is outstanding and quality is top notch. It is a bit loud upstairs when busy and the windows are not open but not a big concern. There menu covers a large spectrum in terms of food and cost. This is my first choice if I am with someone who wants good Italian food.

The ambiance is suttle and inviting. Very busy with a great buzz of people having fun. Food is fresh, hot and delicious. Service is excellent and friendly. Seafood Linguine was amazing with a lobster tail, mussels and salmon. YUMMMM.. Great selection of wine.

I went with a friend to eat brunch! Wow the food was great! I had the Pollenta di Nonna and I highly recommend it! My friend is highly allergic to lots of food and Chef Matteo came out and explained to her what she could have. He went out of his way to help her and prepare her food! It... More

Food choices were plentiful, from pastas, lamb, chicken parm, it was all great. The service was good, the wine selection adequate, and the atmosphere is fun. It's loud when full so don't expect a quiet romantic dinner. Get a seat by the window if possible.

I have been here a few times now and I must say I am never disappointed with the food. The waitresses know their stuff when it comes to the menu, which is always a nice thing. Great atmosphere and pretty prompt service considering how busy it always is. Had their sangria the last time I was there and it was... More
