This I restaurant is an upscale Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Vancouver. I have eaten there several times. It is a very friendly and the staff are great. You can sit back and relax.

I loved the food here it was amazing and authentic. They have four Chef's and all four Chefs are from Italy it doesn't get more authentic then that for food preparation. Head Chef Giovanni is a nice man and very or personable. We ordered family style and loved it all!

I've been here several times. When I came with one of my friends, we were seated downstairs which seemed to feel a little more upscale. When I came with my family we were seated upstairs. It was still fairly nice but it lost its ambiance. I always love their antipasto and their meatballs but something was missing in terms of... More

I can't believe how amazing we were treated at this restaurant. The manager came up to us before we ordered food to tell us that a better table was available and they would like to seat us there... we were indeed moved to a better table, and it had a much nicer ambiance. We really were treated like special guests... More

Food 8, Service 9, Atmosphere 8 I have been to this restaurant over 10 times. The place gets quite crowded for dinner. Their signature pasta with meatballs are consistently good. Even though my favorite server is not there any more, the service was still good.

For an appetizer we had the signature garlic bread and brushetta sampler. For dessert we had the raspberry, chcolate, vailla and lemon shebert. For wine we had the... More

Having worked downtown for years I have been to the Italian Kitchen for lunch on numerous occasions. Crowded and lively the food is always consistent and very good. For lunch I generally order either a pasta or a pizza and have never been disappointed. The service is friendly and professional. A fun and reliable place to go for a meal... More

My husband and I went to Italian kitchen last night for a post-valentines day dinner. I've eaten at most of the great restaurants in Vancouver, and I have to say, the food here was some of the BEST Italian I have had. The pasta was fresh and delicious, and the atmosphere was great. The chef, Giovanni, chatted with us and... More

The service on our visit was very slow as the food took a long time to arrive. Fortunately they took very good care of us and offered us a meatball appetizer and a dessert platter for the inconvenience. This great customer service makes you go from wow this is slow to wow they do a great job here.

Thank Paul H

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
