Great Italian food. We had a great waitress, Erenee. She was wonderful. We both ordered the pasta platter. It is expensive, priced per person with a minimum order of two, but definitely worth it. We were able to try 4 different types of pasta. My favorite was the truffled spaghetti. I wish I had a plate of it right now.... More

We walked up about 6:30 PM and asked if they had a table and Chef Maitre D' Giovanni greeted us with enthusiasm and seated us right away. This restaurant was hoping and we had so much fun watching the open kitchen and the interaction between front and back of the house. This place runs like a well oiled machine. We... More

As a visitor from Australia I have dined at Italian Kitchen annually over the past five years and was able to take my 20 yo student daughter on this occasion. (She has a few food intolerance issues so is quite selective with her dining venue selection.) This restaurant is all about quality and consistency of food and service and it... More

Good Italian food served with a smile at reasonable prices. We got a table without reservations at 5:30, but it was packed by 6:30pm, so reservations suggested after 6. You can eat outside or in.

Not sure what it was, but very disappointing dinner. In this case we had reservations, but casually dressed, and I think this was not the clientele that was wanted? We were challenged at the front door and ignored during dinner. Really spoiled the entire meal, was the food good, perhaps but flavours got lost while wondering if I would ever... More

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner the other night while on Holiday in Vancouver. Juan was an exceptional greeter and maitre' d. He made sure we were attended to and had great suggestions on the menu. Dylan made the greatest drink ever for my wife. She enjoyed the Milano Mule. I have nothing but good things about the... More

We stopped in for a light meal, on my husband's birthday, on our way to see the Picasso exhibition at the VAG. The food was wonderful, as usual, and the staff exemplary. Our host told us not to order another dish because it would have been too much, and he was absolutely right, the portions are so generous during cocktail... More

Brilliant Food presentation. Taste, smell, service and dessert are all above average. Our table was active and busy but yet not distracting

My husband and I were walking the streets of Vancouver and stumbled upon The Italian Kitchen (lunch). The menu looked great so we stopped for lunch. Not only was the food delicious, but our server was so very pleasant. As we talked he let us know that the owner owned 2 other restaurants. As he described their menus, we decided... More

We ate here on our first night in Vancouver. Our waitress was very friendly and quick to deliver water and take our order - I have the impression we lucked out as a request to one of her colleagues for condiments was immediately forgotten as he turned away to serve another table. We both had the penne arriabatta and, though... 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.
