and tonight was a bad draw. We had poured our own wine all evening, not once poured by a waiter. I got up and went to the bar to get my own ice. I went to another table yo get salt and pepper. We never saw our waiter other than to take the order. Another waiter brought our food. My... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal last night. Excellent selection of unusual pizza toppings, and happy to say also don't mind you doing a half-and-half! Recommend the Pizza with a Bite - chili prawns and avo...excellent base and no shortage of toppings. Service was attentive and could not fault. The decor is more upmarket than the sister restaurant in Tokai with a... More

We enjoyed an Italian meal at the Italian Kitchen in October 2014 to celebrate my wife's birthday. Staff were friendly but service was not particularly great. We asked for clean wine glasses (after the drinks had been poured!) and although we did not make a fuss about this it is really not cool. I thought the prices were a bit... More

My husband and I decided to try Italian Kitchen despite the many negative reviews and had a very good meal. My husband had the Super Burger and I had the Hake done with a creamy dill sauce, both were beautifully presented and very tasty. Our waiter was very attentive, and thought it was good value for money

Popular local restaurant recommended by my family I was meeting for a meal out. The creamy prawn sauce on one of three pasta choices was the recommendation which five of the six of us ordered. We had a hint that the service was not going to be great; ordered drinks did not arrive, the young waiter appeared to be stretched,... More

Went to this restaurant on Saturday 12 July. Firstly it was freezing cold and my request to turn up the heat was simply ignored. So, those who had coats, had to keep them on. The rest of us had to shiver through the evening. Then our order was stuffed up so badly that two of us only received our meals... More

First time at Italian Kitchen and i must say it is a delightful little restaurant with great potential. The pizza was yummy. My husband also enjoyed his meal. I would not go as far as to say that the food is authentic Italian, but very nice all the same. Many of the patrons were using cityslicker vouchers and for that... More
