Went here with my sisters and cousin. Food was spot on, servers were great, patio was comfortable. I'd come back! We were here at 6pm, they were full but luckily we got a patio seat. Reservations are probably needed.

It is a bit pricey, which is why my hubby and I haven’t been too eager to go to this restaurant. However, we received a free gift card for a family dinner for 2 and just recently took advantage of it. My dining experience was positive…the service was attentive and the food was very delicious. The highlights for me were... More

Have been a regular patron over the las 4 years. Just feels like its moved to be more about turnover than experience. Food quality is down with a rush to get you served and out the door. No sooner than you order and the food arrives. Pizza was average as was the Beef Carpaccio. Moving on I'm afraid.

Came here with friends at their suggestion. They raved about the truffle spaghetti. It lived up to the hype - delicious! Lovely modern Italian cuisine in a wonderful location. The peach mojito was delightful too.

This restaurant is a short walk from our hotel (Hyatt Regency). We walked in, and the downstairs was painfully hot. (It was 94 in Vancouver today which is truly bizarre.) But our table was upstairs, and we were seated at the window - the top half of which was open. Great setting. We just got off a cruise, and we... More

Treated ourselves to Italian after the Grouse Grind. Everything was excellent. From the appetizer through to the main course, the food was spectacular. The staff was warm and welcoming, including the Chef Giovanni. The special of the day was a great ravioli that should be part of the menu. Food prices are reasonable and quality of food excellent. Definite recommend

We ordered the pasta special and were delighted by the flavour fulness of the dish. Kudos to chef Giovanni. We would recommend the Italian Kitchen to anyone.

I assume we visited this restaurant during the busiest time ever. Yes, it was on Saturday evening but, to wait for your food for over an hour is unacceptable. The restaurant should not be accepting this many customers if the kitchen cannot keep up. Burnt light above our table, we could barely see what we are eating. The food was... 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.
