This place has gone through several changes in names and ownership over the last while so it's not overly surprising that the menu and dishes are a bit confused. That being said the food was decent however not great.
So... Italian... not so much. Firstly there is not a single Italian white wine on the menu & when we were there only 2 Italian red selections. I completely understand the desire to support local BC wines however It's an Italian restaurant lets showcase some fantastic Italian produce.
We were a group of 7 so we were able to try a variety of items of the menu.
- 2 guests ordered the house salad which was described as arugula, feta, toasted pumpkin seeds and mandarin. When it came to the table it was a spinach salad with no pumpkin seeds. We were told it was a spinach arugula blend, there was just no arugula. No explantion for the pumpkin seeds.. one had no dressing?
-Gnocchi with Gorgonzola, the sauce was very well done the gnocchi was beyond overcooked.
-Lobster Mac n Cheese, the sauce had not been thickened it was essentially milk. Lobster was prepared nicely.
-Aglio e olio... This was probably the most disappointing as it is such a simple delicious dish. Was described as Angel hair pasta..came out Spagettini and had over cooked mushy vegetables. I think they were going for a Spaghetti primavera as this dish should have literally been Angel hair, good olive oil, garlic, fresh Parm and maybe some parsley.
The two best dishes were ironically the non Italian items; BBQ Bourbon Ribs & Prawn Rice Bowl, which I believe were menus items from the locations last theme.
For dessert we ordered a molten lava cake & a tiramisu. Again the non Italian selection won. Tiramisu has sooooooooo bland and randomly had blueberries on it?
Also just to note there is another Italian Kitchen in Vernon, which is FANTASTIC.
Our group of 7 came to the same conclusion, service was fantastic, food was average & they most certainly need to take a class or 2 on Italian cooking.
