Italian Kitchen - Vancouver
Friday - Saturday 11:30 am–12:00 am
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.
Good and athmosphere was great. And try one of the delicious desserts too.
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!
We had a great meal and the service was very good. They were very attentive and made sure we were all happy with everything we had. Will definitely go back.
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.
Very good food at very fair prices. Pasta especially good.
Great place to have an early dinner with friends. Good food, helpful staff. A bit on the pricey side, but a good place to eat downtown Vancouver.
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!
Great service. Excellent food. Near Robson so good for before or after a shopping excursion. New location is lovely
Wonderful waitress, really appreciate her knowledge, professionalism, warmth, attention, excellent food, wine seemed a little overpriced for the restaurant relative to the price of the food, but overall we had a lovely time.
Food was amazing, perfect date night spot. Service was friendly
Lovely service and food
I’m from Montreal and Met up with my cousin and her husband who live is Squamish. Food was great, portions were very generous and service was awesome! It’s my 3rd visit to Italian Kitchen and definitely not my last!
Dinner was booked at very short notice on the last night of our stay in Vancouver. Good food but not fresh pasta
Rad lunch spot. Amazing pasta. Beautiful room.
We had my cousin’s 40th Birthday there. Wonderful choice. Service and food was excellent! I would definitely go back there again with a group of people again!
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.
Food was just good. Nothing really stood out to make this meal feel special. Iffy about coming back but we didn’t have a horrible experience in the least.
Food was generally awful. Carbonara was not edible, bolognese was mediocre at best. Beet salads were good
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.
Rib eye Steak was over cooked, dry and flavourless.
Business, birthday, friends lunch. Great staff, wonderful food, reasonable wine list.
Buena comida. La burrata con prosciutto excelente
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.
Delight experience to share the very delicious Italian food with friends there.
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 always dine at Italian Kitchen when I have the chance. The truffle meatballs are my favourite!
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.
Our server was excellent. He was attentive without being pesky. The place is classy and the prices are not too bad. I preferred the old Italian Kitchen menu as there was more choices for pasta.
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.
Time after time we are extremely satisfied with food and the service. Emad, All the restaurants are fantastic however IK is our absolute favourite.
Ryan was outstanding!!! Food and drinks were amazing!
My friend and I split the Pasta plate with a side of meat ball- the food was fantastic!
Very nice food with excellent service. I recommend the pork chop.
Delightful. Freshest of fresh ingredients pulled together for your lunch. Service was accommodating, knowledgeable and unpretentious. Can’t wait to return!
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.
