We went for the set dinner for $49, which included an appetizer, a pasta dish, a protein-based main, and dessert. The non-seafood dishes were pretty good, but the seafood dishes were not great. Service and ambience were both great though. Overall, probably wouldn't return given the large selection of better Italian restaurants in Vancouver.
The value and food was good. Our server, however, didn't match up with the Glowbal Group's standard. The server was rush and lack of finesse. The service was robotic and not genuine.
such a great spot for a lunch catch up :) highly recommend
We were last year & we were so happy to be back! Exceptional service, wine pairing & food... On point!
Pretty overrated experience all round. Attentive service, but the quality of the food nowhere near matched the price tag. Wouldn’t go back, there are much better choices in Vancouver.
Nice ambience, very good service and top notch cuisine
It’s excellent becoz they did listened for what we requested with a nice table ! Foods are amazing and only a little disappointed when they told us one of the dish were sold out and no other dish replaced it! Also it happened again when came with the desserts, what 4 of us wanted were sold out too... and thanks for the waiter Chase who served us all night and arrange a special desserts from the menu, only no candles for two of us ( it’s our 60th years old bday in Lunar ) and I told my brother we will have a candles that night !! Special thanks for CHASE who served us all night and also the Manager dropped by ask us about the night too, appreciated !
Had to redo pasta, but steak was very good!
Everything was great as usual. The food was served very quickly as the staff was friendly.
Nice food good service always feels good I like the outside seating area in summer evening go there with my wife my family some time with friends to
Service good but food was just OK. Had eggplant parm ravioli which was good but the sauce on top was a tart and plain tomato sauce that didn’t pair well which ruined it. My husbands meal was also just OK. I expect more when paying $100 for a meal.
Food was very good. I had the salmon and it was a bit oily, but cooked nicely.
Terrible food - mistakes with timing and dishes.
Gritty cold potatoes ruined dishes - compensated with free dessert
Would not go back
Absolutely fab! Great place to get the small team together.
Food was pretty decent!
Short rib ravioli is a must-try, absolutely fantastic.
Had reservations and had to wait a bit to get seated, but service was very good.
The food and atmosphere were really good. The price was expensive but worth it. Only complaint I have is that it was really cold in the restaurant, which was kind of distracting. Other than that everything was wonderful
They have moved locations, not a fan at all
Of the new spot and the menu has changed as well. Would not recommend!
Unfortunately, we were looking forward to dinner after our show on Feb 14th.
Did not realize there was but one menu for Valentines , with a few options.
$85 a head plus $40 each for wine pairing. Appetizer was good, main course lacked seasoning and the fish was slightly overcooked while the potatoes were slightly under cooked.
Dessert was ok. Over all, for the price, disappointing.
Don't know if we would go again.
Lovely Valentines dinner. Food was delicious and there was lots of it!
was greeted in a timely manner, staff were nice and efficient. their pasta is quite good. i can not say they are better than what i have tried in Boston and New York city but they are definitely better than a lot of Vancouver restaurants.
Too much overhead lighting which took away from the ambiance.
We got to the restaurant and the reservation could not be found however we quickly seated. Our waiter Jessie was very personable and knowledgeable about the food. I had the Blue plate ricotta and spinach tortellini which were excellent, just the right bite. My husband had Spaghetti Bolognese which he said was great with a little spice. We enjoyed glasses of the house red which was a nice Italian red. We don't have dessert but I was intrigued buy plates of white balls that went by. Jessie explained that these were a kind of Italian doughnut and I was sold. My husband had the chocolate cake, a lovely layered dessert. Coffee was really nice and went perfectly with the wonderful rich desserts.

We had outstanding service and food was unbelievable.Some of the best pasta we have had in a long time.
Having been before we thought it was an easy choice to bring our guests from out of town. Unfortunately I have food allergies and my meal came out as it is on the menu with allergens present. And another in our groups meal dod not come for quite some time after everything else. The food was good and they did take care of the forgotten meal... The room is great and food decent so hopefully a one off experience.
Beautiful setting and ambiance. Food was ok but not fantastic like expected. Calamari appetizer was deep died and bland, like average pub style food. It used to be served pan fried was was the best I’d ever had anywhere on three previous occasions eating here. The description in the menu is very limited so impossible for us to have known it changed. The waiter explained that menu items change presentation every few months. I wondered if the restaurant had changed hands
Mains were fine, mine was good, a ravioli pasta dish, my husband’s was just ok. Tirasimu desert was excellent.
Overall it was a bit disappointing. The biggest issues were the noise level, very loud on a Friday night. Second, is our own fault. I had chosen a wine around $50. The waiter returned with a glass of different wine for me to try. It was fine and we agreed to that one instead. Then, we decided to order grappa. I asked the waiter to choose and he did. It was excellent
The final bill was $275
Wine was $75, and the grappa each was $23. Outrageous and ultimately we felt taken advantage of. Our own fault but never again
Dined on a busy Friday night, service was quick and fairly efficient. Drinks were a little slow. Food came out at a reasonable pace and was very good. I wouldn't go if I was in a hurry but we were not so had a lovely dinner that was well prepared and efficiently served. It was packed so quite a high ambient noise level that might be a problem if people in your party had hearing issues.
The pasta was wonderful, and service was exceptionally good. I would like to go back and try a different pasta some time soon.
It was my and my friend’s birthday. We had a *great* meal and the server brought us piece of tiramisu on the house that says happy birthday on the plate. I would go back in a second!
Fabulous birthday brunch with h quick service. Food was well presented and delicious ( eggs Benny, French toast) with such accommodating waiters. Even surprised our daughter with a birthday dessert...so special! Love Italian Kitchen!!!
Food was fabulous... service was good. We really enjoyed the whole experience... parking lot next door was so convenient and inexpensive, after being validated by the restaurant.
Our server forgot to bring us the wine pairing during the meal and then offered a “sorry not sorry” type of comment instead of an actual apology or at least take the cost off the bill.
We had a great time at the dineout. Me and my friends thoroughly enjoyed our meals, and the wait staff was extraordinarily friendly. They did get one of our order's wrong, but it was rectified quickly. The desert was amazing. However, I can't say much for the wine pairings.
I made a reservation through open table, arrived at the restaurant only to be told they were closed for a private function. I'm not sure how Open Table can offer and confirm reservations to places not willing to honour those same reservations.
We had a great time. Food was good. I did mention we were celebrating my wife's 40th birthday when i reservation. I wasn't expecting a free dessert but maybe a candle in her dessert? Otherwise it was good.
Horrible Service. Had dinner at the Italian Kitchen with my girlfriend as a romantic night out. It was a busy Saturday night and the restaurant was very lively. The food was very good, but what ruined it was the service. In one word, rude.
The waiter was extremely rude, abrupt and seemed impatient. He did not explain the menu, made a snarky comment when I asked a question about the main course, and then during dinner dropped down the drinks and extra cutlery, rudely interrupted us, and just seemed to be annoyed.
We are not difficult customers and just smiled as the service just continued to be awful. At the end of the dinner, my girlfriend even politely asked him if he was really busy or having a difficult night. He replied no, everything was fine, so he obviously treats all customers like this.
Post Christmas get together among good friends 💜
Great food, great atmosphere, great service. Highly recommend !
Amazing fresh pasta with fresh sauces, fish and meats. Try the prosciutto platter and the seafood pasta dish. Wines are reasonable and very good
