“Great service at the bar”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Only negative is the door opens and the room freezes in the winter and heats up in the summer

Pizza is good, pasta a little salty, veal excellent

“Best Brunch I've ever had.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I've dined at several of the Glowbal Groups restaurants but this was my first visit to Italian Kitchen.
Four of us went for a Saturday lunch/brunch in January. It was a little cold (temperature) inside but we were near the large windows and our server immediately adjusted the heat for us. Service was prompt and the menu had lots of interesting choices with surprisingly reasonable prices. The food was spectacular. Best bacon I've ever tasted, (we ordered a side and it was plenty for two people), excellent Eggs Benny with crispy ham, the French toast was delicious and even though we were having breakfast, we ordered two meatballs to start. I highly recommend them, they are so full of flavor! I will definitely return to this restaurant. Brunch was so good, I can't wait to try dinner.

“Solid Flavors”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Not fine dining, but upscale restaurant. Great service and food was great. Two levels and seating at the bar were you can view the open kitchen. Reservations recomended.

“Great Atmosphere--Value OK”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Had a reservation for a large group and were seated immediately upon entering. Our waiter was excellent, offered good conversation and looked after all our needs without being asked. The food was found to be a little on the pricey side but the quality was very good. The atmosphere was good if you could get around the noise! The piano on the stairway landing was a good use of space.
