Absolutely gorgeous food, both in presentation and flavour, and wine list to match. Servers are knowledgable, engaging and courteous without being at all snooty. The kitchen is happy to make adjustments to the dishes. My only suggestion is to be a little more generous with the cheese (burrata and fresh mozza in particular) as there is just a teaser amount. Always a beautiful experience here. The new location is lovely and the noise level much lower so it was great for visiting around the table.

Food and service were truly outstanding in all respects. Food was very tasty - not over-spiced and nicely presented in decent amounts. Friendly, but not over-bearing service was "there when needed" and "out of the way" when not needed. Very keen to come back again. Only slight quibbles would be lousy background music and the herbal mint tea at the end seemed to have an unexpected odd flavour. No hesitation to recommend this.

Restaurant is good, but the parking lot beside it was awful, we had a baby stroller and were not allowed to use the elevator, will not go anytime soon since it is not convenient.

We enjoyed the experience very much. The antipasti plate fed us both, we barely needed the pasta that followed. The food is excellent, the bread amazing, best tiramisu I've had - lemon hints in it are great.

Our server was wonderful, I wish I remembered her name.

Lovely dinner for 2. We chose to sit at the antipasti bar so that we could watch the fancy hand work of the chefs- very entertaining and great service by the barkeep. All staff intersections were professional and the food smelled and tasted heavenly. Will be back soon!

Had a lovely business lunch. One of my companions ordered the salmon - a nice dish but a little sparse on the plate. I ordered the Parmesan crusted Chicken. Much more food. Chicken was delicious. Salad great. Gnocci was overcooked. Nice service.

Excellent service and the food was quite good although my seafood was underdone as was the pasta, for my taste. We thought the wine was pricey.

My guest and I wanted to grab a quick bite and were craving for some good pasta. We ordered the pasta platter, and it was indeed good enough for two people. A good item to grab with one or two more sides for a full sit-down dinner. Host was a bit insistent on what kind of food we want ordered, but as soon as we're done ordering, our server made our evening much better. She was attentive and quick to attend to our request. I will definitely come back - perhaps for a longer dinner too.

Terrible food and experience. That wasn’t a bolognese... it’s a marinara at best! No meat, basic Boyardee flavour, disappointing. And my friend’s duck was an appetizer sized meal.

Worse, no one asked how it tasted and when we mentioned the disappointment, the server made no effort to make it right.

Love Italian food; our Server was great - friendly, polite, formal, efficient, and knowledgeable. However, the decor is really drab and does not project "Italian" in its concept. Desperately needs a make over. The music, too, was not Italian.

That was our son’s 11th BD and even making a reservation and came 5 min in advance, we had to wait for almost 20 min to get a table for 3people. Meanwhile, your admin girl was able to find at least 2x tabes for 3 for people who arrived even after us and 3 tables for two...that fact really made my son feel like this place is not welcomed for him..Finally we got a table after I reminded the girl on front desk if she still remember about us...2 min turned into another 5-7 waiting before we got a table. Many thanks to our waiter (maybe his name was Rod),who was great in his role that evening and not only congrats our son but also was very helpful in general. Great chianti and non-alco cocktail, however pastas we ordered were terrible (oversalted and stuck together like frozen spaghetti, and very coarse pepper- havn’t seen for a very long time in Vancouver). We like to celebrate BDs in our families in different places with Italian cuisine here, and unfortunately our experince with Italian Kitchen on Burrard wasn‘t even close so positive like we experienced in Trattoria or Poor Italian and others. Sorry about that.

Nice atmosphere, excellent service, wonderful food! We so enjoyed the roast duck, brought to our table by a staff member to show us how great it looked just out if the oven, then taken back to the kitchen to be plated. Tasted as good as it looked.

Thank you staff and chefs.

We had a lovely dinner with our family of 5. The antipasto platter was excellent with a lot of variety for everyone. Had the spaghetti & meatballs -so yummy. Our table also had the cauliflower salad, calamari and carbonara. All was delicious and appreciate that the pasta was actually cooked “al dente.”

Were seated by the kitchen window which was ok - not as lively as the main dining area but also a bit more quiet to have conversation.
