The service was stunning. The desserts were tasty too. However, the appetizer and main course were not good, the salami and pork tasted like raw meat, parma's fat had an odd texture and it goes on.

The menu choices changed since our last meal at the restaurant. My husband wanted a pasta dish, and chose seafood linguine, but wanted more seafood selection in it, and was disappointed in the way it was prepared.i had the salmon, and it was great.

The food was good ( just good ) not great .. the place is nice .. the staff was nice... nothing that you can’t eat elsewhere .. price was high considering the food was just “good”.. I don’t mind paying a little extra when the food is great but for me that was not the case.. the reviews on yelp and TripAdvisor hype this place up too much however the restaurants atmosphere was good.

The food was superb.
Our server messed up one of our dinners (a pasta) which took 25 minutes to bring the correct meal. They brought a nice salad in the mean time and comped us a dessert. It however, really threw off the dinner.
The robo call I got the next day from them advertising the restaurant was a special treat.

I came here with my boyfriend for our anniversary and the staff was so friendly and our waitor was amazing and he made great suggestions. I’ve already recommended friends to come check it out! I’ll definitely be coming back in the future, I didn’t get to try dessert so I’m excited to come back for it. We had the calamari as an appetizer and it is hands down the best calamari I’ve had. I’d reccomend that and be truffle spaghetti!

Our experience at dinner was nothing more than normal. My calamari was not very good, over cooked and more batter that calamari. My sea bass as a main course was just okay.

I think this restaurant has gone downhill since my last visit. We got our appetizers very quickly, which was nice but, after our appetizer plates were cleared, it took about 40 minutes to get our meal, without a visit from our Server in all that time.

When our meals finally arrived, they were "plopped" down in front of us and we didn't see the Server again for about 20 minutes when she stopped by to ask how our meals were. The answer I should have gave was, "almost finished".

My meal was not very tasty. My dining partner enjoyed his meal, but agreed that the restaurant has gone downhill both in terms of service and food quality.

I probably won't return and would not recommend it.

My mother’s fav spot to catch up with me. Staffs are always attentive and knows when to interrupt while conversation is going. I really appreciate their suggestion about food and wine and it always matches with what I wanted each day.

This has been the place for a good business dinner for my work as well.

Keep up the good work and thanks.

Appetizers, wine, and service were great. Main course, seafood pasta, was a little off, the sauce being a little sharp and in short supply. Prawns and scallops were bland. A big step down from previous visits.

Wonderful dinner.... I find it a little frustrating that they are always out of the more reasonably priced bottles of wine (we’ve been twice in a month and both times they were out of 4 different wines)
We also had a little hiccup with the food (not a big deal) but the floor manager offered us a complimentary dessert which she never did bring.... she’s.... just not that great customer service-wise.... again the food was excellent.

The Italian Kitchen has long been my favourite Glowbal group restaurant! This time, however, I was a little disappointed. It’s the first time I’ve been since they moved from their Alberni location to just off Robson, and it seems like with the move, they left behind a little bit of their magic. An abbreviated menu (where have you gone, delicious flatbreads?!? I long for you, carne sample platter!) and an extremely lacklustre plate of carbonara made me long for the Italian Kitchen of old. Our server could not conjure the flatbreads or platter, but she did offer to have the carbonara remade or replaced with something else, and the ensuing veal scaloppini was really tasty. The prosciutto/burrata and calamari appies were delicious, too. Ambiance was lovely. Would we go back? Sure. But if I’m craving super savoury, elbow-someone-aside-to-get-in-the-door classic Italian, I think I’m more likely to head back to my favourite little place in Burnaby.

Love the new location on Burrard Street. our server Chase was super. we were very satisfied with the dishes we ordered - wild mushroom salad was really good - great flavours. veal scallopini - good portion - 3 pieces of veal - very tender & tasty. daily special - cant remember the name but it was a ravioli served with clams & mussels. the dessert are a must - tiramisu and the zeppola - OMG - no words to describe.....just have to have it! YUMMMMM. we will definitely go back.
