Always reliable

I've been going here at least twice a year for probably 8 years. Service is always good and the food delicious. Can sometimes be a hassle to get a reservation but it's a guaranteed good night. Typical Italian cuisine with lovely cocktail menu.

I was in Italian Kitchen for a quick lunch this week while I was in town. I just sat at the bar. The food was great and incredibly fast. The staff were very friendly. A lovely manager named Jen even chatted with me. I'll definitely be back when I'm back in Vancouver.

Went to dinner with my parents on a Tuesday night as they were visiting from out of town. We heard mixed reviews about the Italian Kitchen but decided to check it out. Crystal, our server was amazing. The food she recommended was outstanding- I even told her to make a decision for me! We will definitely be back soon.

My husband and I were in Vancouver for the weekend and we dined at the Italian Kitchen for my birthday at the end of March. We did not have a reservation as we were doing our own walking foodie tour.

This in a very friendly restaurant for a lunch in the center. Food is well prepared and presented. Staff professional. Smart place. If you are in the mood for a italian lunch do not look further, unless you want to go a bit far from the center, then you can go to

We ate at Italian Kitchen on a Sunday evening. It was early and we didn't call for a reservation, but they were able to seat us fairly quickly even though the restaurant was pretty full. We got there in time to take advantage of the 50% off happy hour for both drinks and some food, so that was a very... More

Amazing authentic italian food - the burrata was delicious, the pasta cooked to perfection and fantastically flavoured, and the dessert of torta di ciocolatto al latte was to die for. All enhanced by a great cocktail menu - one of the best aperol spritz I have had outside Italy. It's not cheap but is well worth the prices - looking... More

I took my husband to this restaurant for his birthday lunch today because I had been there about 4 years ago and enjoyed my experience. The restaurant decor/ carpets/experience back then were a lot newer and nicer looking and I figured it would still be the same. We ordered the pasta platter for two ($20/person) and were just about to... More
