Had dinner there last week. The food and service were first rate. Must mention our server Crystal. When she found out that it was our 40th anniversary, 2 complimentary glasses of bubbly appeared in seconds. The evening ended with a wonderful dessert, not some hokey cupcake saying happy anniversary. Excellent value for the money, and just steps from our hotel... More

Wow busy restaurant and easy to see why. Food was excellent. We shared a pasta platter and loved the spaghetti and meatballs best. Our waitress was perfect. It is dark and noisy. Just part of this trendy place. Will definitely return. Be sure to make reservations.

I have eaten at this restaurant probably 10 times or better and have yet to receive bad service or bad food. As a previous reviewer said, it is reliable! I would like to share my first experience, even though it was years ago because I think it really sums up this restaurant and the quality of service you receive. My... More

You can always count on the food being good here. It comes out quickly and hot and tasty. Service was top notch as usual.

We didnt have a plan for dinner and were just out wandering looking at options when we happened upon the Italian Kitchen. We were pleasantly surprised, the food was great and not too expensive at all. We did find that was very loud (we were seated upstairs) and a bit too dark (we could barely read the menu and we...

My husband and I recently dined here on a Sunday evening and had a thoroughly positive experience. Our server, Johnny, was informative and attentive. We shared a salad to start and it was delicious and more than enough. Our mains were the penne arrabiatta and the ravioli special. Both were outstanding and because one was served slightly early, we received... More

Great bar seating that provides the 'Italian Trattoria' feel. Food is good and well put together. Nice cocktails and special cocktails are very good. They could use some more craft style beer to make the 'happy hour' fun more complete. See you again!

Dinner with a friend was fantastic this week. The burrata with pancetta was very good and the fusilli lunghi I enjoyed and the halibut special my friend had were both excellent. Service was prompt without being rushed and very friendly. My experiences and the food at this restaurant have been consistently good.

All my life (40yrs) and counting I have despised those awful dreaded bitter green things that our family traditionally has at thanks giving and Christmas dinners. I'm talking about brussle sprouts. That was until friends took us to a great little Italian restraunt in Vancouver, and I was tricked into having some, and now I crave them.  I mean the... More

I never write reviews, but was compelled when my friend and I stopped in without reservations. We sat at the bar and proceeded to have what we could only describe as "an epic" evening. The food was amazing. We had the veal scallopini and the eggplant parmesan. Crystal immediately confirmed that one of us what a vegetarian and was quick... More
