Great Food & Energetic Environment

Excellent food and generally good service. Can get busy in the evenings so be prepared to wait a bit or make a reservation. Sitting upstairs is like sitting in a different restaurant - don't do it. Wait for a table to open up on the ground floor. Ask the server if there is a risotto, it's not... read more

The food and service were both excellent and the location, in the heart of downtown made it an easy walk from our hotel. Did not especially care for the wine choices (we are Cabernet Sauvignon drinkers).

I am writing this review to follow-up on the initial bad review I wrote about for this restaurant. I was contacted by the management indicating they wanted to make up for the bad experience. Just today I received a gift card from them as a gesture of goodwill. The person whom I talked with was very open to my complaint... More

Only had one night in Vancouver and this was very close to hotel. Food nicely presented and filling. Cocktails nice. Wine reasonably priced. Very busy on Saturday night but fitted us in. Very quick turn round after you have eaten for next guests.

The food here is amazing and the service is superb! My sister and I went and while waiting for our table were served a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and a little taste of a appy. While in Vancouver this is a must for the pasta lovers!

I have come here both to pick up food for take out and to dine in. The service is always excellent- somehow better than the other Glowbal restaurants. Our server (Maro?) was always right on time - with water, once we had decided, and he made some great food suggestions. I have had the linguine vongole, which I thought was... More

I had veal piccata and it might have been the best I've had . Naturally we all had their Brussel sprouts and no disappointments , just great . I love... More

The Italian Kitchen can be found on Alberni Street (just west of Burrard Street) which is akin to La Cienega Boulevard (restaurant row) in Hollywood. What a nice surprise it was to discover that Cocktail Hour occurs every afternoon until 5:30 PM and all food items on the Cocktail Menu are 50% off. We enjoyed linguine carbonara and spaghetti with... More
