Restaurant was recommended to us by a local. Arrived for our reservation & were seated promptly. Took over 5 mins before the waiter greeted us with water. We ordered our drinks immediately & proceeded to watch other patrons who arrived after us receive their drinks. The waiter came to take our order & still no drinks. My husband asked where... More

We had a wonderful evening here. The service was excellent and the food delightful. It gets busy here so a reservation is a very good idea. Enjoy!

This is great Italian cuisine owned by a great Restaurant Group in a super location. The happy hour menu is unbelievable. It lets you sample so many of this great bistro's foods so you just want to keep coming back for more. Located on Alberni Street just off Robson and Burrard so you are close but just out of the...

We booked ahead the day before, this was a good move as I've rarely seen such a busy restaurant. The service despite the pressure on numbers was good but the food was disappointing. My carbonara was not as good as I cook at home. The risotto special was also disappointing. However, the house white was very good.

Just finished a delicious dinner in a good entourage. Food was delicious, service was perfect. Only one small detail was the dirty dish that was on the table when we arrived. But overall the best place for an Italian meal in Vancouver.

Located on one of the tony streets of Vancouver, Alberni, is the Italian Kitchen, part of a well-reputed local restaurant group, Glowbal. Few years ago the addition of the Italian Kitchen to the vibrant gastronomic scene of the Alberni Street, which hosts few reasonably good restaurants, was warmly welcomed by the locals. I dined there during its first year a... More

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.
