It was just OK from the food quality perspective which was disappointing. The staff went out of their way to fit my large group of 8 in when I had to move my reservation time up.

We had a great time at Italian Kitchen. It was our first visit there and it did not disappoint. The restaurant is beautifully designed, the seating is comfortable, the food was excellent, and our service, provided by Rob, was top notch. Looking forward to our next visit to Italian Kitchen, and hope to try other restaurants in the Glowbal Group in hopes they will be just as good!

Two highlights: the waiter served us a wine taster before we ordered, and it resulted in our choosing that wine - delightful, and was a good match for our menu choice. We ordered the lunch specials of the day and they were both delicious.

Great pastas. Prompt and reliable service. Terrific focaccia served by the piece (offered extras without prompting). Good ambience and comfortable seating. Could people watch from our window table. Great place for an elegant business lunch.

Count on great food here. My only complaint is that tables are too close together-the wait staff had trouble squeezing by to each customer. Other than that, outstanding!

My daughter and I chose your restaurant for a special meal on a recent trip to Vancouver. We were quite disappointed and felt we were treated a bit like second class citizens. We had to ask for our beverage as all that was offered on being seated was water. We were not informed about the daily specials. We were not offered the bread and dip that we saw being presented to all tables around us. The pasta was not quite cooked. When we requested a dessert, there was a 10 minute wait before someone came to take our order for dessert.
I personally would not make any effort to eat at your restaurant again.

A mouse ran across the floor under our table! The server that saw was appalled. She said the manager would speak with us but never seemed to show up. Our server was nice but we were really disappointed that a manger didn't seem to care they had rodents in their restaurant, not to mention just our table was right beside the kitchen ...Made dinner slightly less appetizing.

It's my second visit at this new location on Burrard Street. The food is excellent. But the real advantage of this location over the one at Alberni Street is the subdued noise level. It is possible to have a business discussion here; at the old place one had to shout across the table. Service is professional and efficient.

Was at your establishment last year prior to your move, had a fabulous time, great service and food. This time however, the service was marginal at best, we didn’t know who our server was, we ordered salad to start and it was forgotten. Our wine glasses were not refilled, and when I finally had the chance to order another one, I was served the wrong wine. None of us live in Vancouver, but I think I’d give it another go next time around. Hopefully these issues are addressed

Don’t order the veal. Chefs need to use less salt when preparing main dishes.

I was a fan of Italian Kitchen before they moved to the new location. The Ambiance is much nicer but the new “revamped” menu has been trimmed and prices exponentially increased. It is loud and cramped. Not a fan anymore.

Had the mushrooms and gnocchi and I didn't like it, seemed bland. Kids pasta with meat sauce was great. Garlic bread was literally dripping with butter. Calamari was ok. Tiramisu was good. Changed the baby on a glass side table in full-access bathroom. Our server was great. Expensive. Had higher expectations, based on a meal at Trattoria a few years ago.

I brought my boyfriend to Italian kitchen for his birthday this past weekend and the experience was wonderful. We were seated within 2 minutes of arriving to our reservation. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu especially since it was both of ours first time eating here. Her suggestions were a knock out and we enjoyed every single bit. There was a dessert brought out for my boyfriend which was just the icing on top!! Overall, I would definitely return to the restaurant and reccommend it to everyone.

Love this family of restaurants.
Each with its own character.
Food at Italian Kitchen this visit was outstanding. Scallop Rizotto was fabulous.
Server went out of her way to retrieve additional info about the wine we requested. A teachable moment.

Absolutely outstanding food and beverage at the Italian Kitchen! The food was great portion sizes and had great quality. The prices are not cheap but you are definitely getting more than the value. Service was great and made it easy to take our time and really enjoy our evening. Wine list is impeccable for both by the glass and by the bottle selection. We will be back for our next celebration dinner.
