Your details of this restaurant indicate this restaurant is fine dining and romantic. It is not either, in my opinion. The food is good and the service was very good, especially considering how busy it was. The place was packed with the tables fairly close to each other. It was very loud which does not make it a romantic spot... More

First time here after hearing good things. They had a bunch of sampler options which give you smaller portions of 3-4 dishes which was awesome to try out what they offered. We went with the pasta sampler and it came with 4 half portions at $20/person. It was more than enough food for sure and a great value I thought.... More

Went to Italian Kitchen for the first time. The place was super busy, which we thought was a good sign. However, as soon as we entered the restaurant, there seemed to be chaos - lots of people at the tiny entrance, no hostess at the door to greet us or to take our coats, people coming and going bumping into...

Food and drink was just a bit above average. The donut dessert was quite good. A little to loud to get any real business done.

Enjoyed a lovely dinner with my husband and in-laws at the Italian Kitchen. As a starter we ordered the calamari and burrata and prosciutto. Dinner was the truffle spaghetti and meatballs and for desert we shared chocolate ganache. The entire meal was absolutely the best we've ever had! It's our new go-to italian restaurant downtown. Loved the energy of the... More

I've wanted to eat here for a long time and finally talked my husband into making reservations for lunch today since we were heading to the V.A.G. to see the Lawren Harris exhibit. And I am so very happy we went and so, may I add, is my husband. We ordered the burrata cheese and prosciutto starter to split &... More

So, having read all the other rave reviews about here, it makes me wonder if we came to the same place. The tables were really close together, it was pretty noisy, the food was ok - nothing overly special, but it was the service that has really driven me to this review. The waiter just made the whole thing feel... More

Sit downstairs, preferably at the bar, for your ultimate 'kitchen' experience where you can watch the chefs at work, listen to the music (loud) and enjoy the busy ambiance. (Upstairs has a view of Alberni Street, but tables small and too close). Recommend pizzas - keep it simple. Main dishes are hit and miss and on the expensive side!

I had a very good dinner at Italian Kitchen in Vancouver during a business trip in March 2014. Our group had a wide selection of entrees and appetizers, and everyone was happy with their selections. The service was excellent. At one point we noticed that the table next to us had some great looking meatballs. When we commented on them,... More
