The Italian Kitchen has done it again... one of my favorite spots in Vancouver. I booked my birthday dinner at this venue and we had a fantastic server, took excellent care of us. From the atmosphere to the food to the drinks and service, it was all top notch. The management team put on a beautiful dessert display for the... More

The service and food are great. It is pricey but worth it if you want a fancy dinner. My Mom did not want dinner so they gave us a free meatball - so cute :) It was awesome so we ended us staying longer and getting hungrier and ordering more food...very sneaky but we wanted to go back - just...

Try the truffle spaghetti & wagyu meatballs - it may just change your life. I highly recommend reservations as this place gets busy fast. The service is chronically attentive but the prices can get away from you quickly if you're into the wine. PS. Great ambiance for a romantic date night.

It makes me really sad to write this review because I had such high expectations for my first time at Italian Kitchen. We decided to celebrate my friend's birthday party here - her boyfriend called to make reservations a week in advance. The party was for a group of 16 people, and we originally spoke to Gurpreet. We told him... More

Hi Hannah. I'm very sorry to read of your recent experience with us - particularly since we came so highly recommended. While I'm glad you received exceptional service from Nikki, I apologize for your meals, and what can only be described as a communication breakdown between making your reservation, and joining us. We'd like to follow up with you directly... More

We stopped in at lunchtime, after hearing rave reviews about the food. We were not disappointed! Beet salad was incredible as well as the pasta, which we were able to order gluten free. Anika, the waitress, was amazing, offering us anything we needed whether it was on the menu or not. Restaurant was very busy and had great energy coming... More

We came to this restaurant after asking our waitress at another restaurant belonging to this restaurant group where we could go for really great pasta. She recommended this restaurant without hesitation and promised us it would be the best pasta we ever had. Well, she was not only right, but there to greet us at the door! Funny because we... More

We visited here this evening for supper. We reserved a table out on the small patio. Service was prompt and friendly. We started with the Burrata & Prosciutto. It was delicious! My food (Pappardelle) was excellent. My wife had the Seafood Fettuccine. She is from the east coast and is very picky when it comes to seafood. She found the... More
