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

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

The restaurant was very busy, but we had a nice quiet table in the corner. My first time here and won't be the last. If you want excellent food, great wine... 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

This is a 10 out of 10! Our cab driver recommended it when we were out touring. Not only was this restaurant close to everything (Alberni and Burrard) - but the food and atmosphere was amazing! There is just a small amount of outdoor seating but inside seating on the main floor was great. The windows were open so it... More

Our lunch was quite good, we had the bruschetta starter and both had eggplant parmigiana for mains, food was tasty but not outstanding. Service was good, the place was very busy at lunch and as the tables are close together, noisy.
