Good food and great service. I work downtown so I always come here for lunch when I feel like pasta. Make reservations, especially on Fridays. The food is consistent, service is friendly and the atmosphere is great. My favourite dish is the spaghetti al ragu, but the truffle spaghetti is also very good. They also have yummy non alcoholic drinks... More

This restaurant is very loud. Decor is nice and modern, and the menu is extensive. We ordered the bruschetta sampler as an appetizer. It came as a flat loaf with 3 toppings, pesto, tomatoes/onions (traditional bruschetta) and hummus. The hummus was lumpy as if it had not been properly pureed. The pesto was tasteless and had a lump of white... More

I went there for dinner one evening, and had an enjoyable meal. It was more upbeat and louder than I initially expected. I was given a complimentary meatball to start off my visit which was a nice touch. I had the Calamari to start, and unexpectedly they were offering happy hour (3pm-6pm) so it was half price. The Calamari was... More

Food and service were excellent. Drinks are very good, generously poured, and reasonably priced. There is a lot of selection on the menu and several gluten-free options. Servers were friendly and knowledgeable. Caprese salad was huge and delicious. Truffle spaghetti and meatballs is to die for. A little too noisy but all in all a great spot.

We had a late lunch and the food was very good. We are both vegetarians and the kitchen was able to accommodate us with a custom platter, with 4 pasta dishes. Their house-made, pan-fried gnocchi with pesto was soft and lightly crunchy, browned in a skillet. Next was the puttanesca and penne, minus the anchovies. Extra capers gave the sauce... More

The Italian Kitchen is located near Robson shopping and the financial district. With two floor and sidewalk seating, it's a popular spot for good Italian food. It does get quite noisy at full capacity, so be prepared if you go at peak times as conversation can be a challenge. The portion, selection and quality are great, and the service is... More

We have always been happy with our meals at and the quality of the service is really good. Very clean, very nice atmosphere. You may have to wait but worth the wait.

Visited for a meal for three booked via Opentable. Guy at the desk seemed spaced out when we arrived. He didn't give us the Cocktail Hour special menu - probably assumed as "tourists" we didn't know about it. We were shown to a table which wasn't ideal for us. We asked to be moved to one in a corner which... More
