My family and I came here for my mother's 60th birthday this past weekend. The service was fantastic! Shoutout to Anthony! He was very diligent, professional and friendly. The entire staff was also brilliant! Every time any staff member walked by our able they were looking down checking on us. Many friendly faces from bussers to runners. It must speak to upper management to see everyone seem to enjoy their jobs and do it well.
The food of course was unbelievable! It definitely lived up to the hype as delicious and unique.
10/10! Thank you ITA Kitchen!

Food was good.
Husband had to pick over and over again since they didn't have multiple items available which was frustrating.
850 hit and the staff came over mid entree and asked us if we would like boxes. Also frustrating.

We had a 745 reservation with the ordering issues we didn't get entrees until about 830. It appears they take reservations way later than us so it was an absolute shame to be rushed out.

We liked the food but won't be returning.

Reservation was for outside all they had when I made them. I noted if inside became available I would prefer it. Arrived a few minutes early. Was told table is ready but if I wanted inside it would be another 15 minutes. We sat at the bar and realized we were comfortable there) which requires an reservation) Gave our table away. Sat at the bar our meal and drinks were perfect. Another great meal at ITA

Early dinner with my daughter so place was pretty quiet as far as diners. Food was delicious and large servings so we each brought home half our meals. Have also been to the restaurant for a baby shower which was outside and was lovely

I have been wanting to try ITA For quite some time. I have to say food was great, service ok.

FOOD: food flavor profile and cook for what we ordered was great. For start we had the BURRATA AVOCADO TOAST. This was my only complaint, the bread was so overly toasted When I cut It, It went everywhere and It was hard to the point where It cut my mouth which made the rest of my meal not as enjoyable. We had the TRUFFLE PESTO RAVIOLI which was very good . And for entrees SHRIMP LUCIANO and PICANTI. The shrimp was delicious but it’s sauce is more like a broth that the shrimp and spinage soak in, I would have liked It a little less saturated. And the PICANTI was a nice twist to Francese but definitely spicy.

ATMOSPHERE: we sat in the back outside tent. They decorated It beautifully!! It was loud and echoed though so if you don’t like noise don’t sit out there. I am also not a fan of eating on and drinking from plastic when I’m spending the kind of money.

The food was excellent. The seating was very uncomfortable. The beginning of the dinner was fairly quiet then a DJ started and couldn’t hear my wife from next to me. After dinner waited 30 minutes for our waitress and then ordered dessert and waited 30 more minutes to find it was delivered to another table. To be fair probably just a one off thing but was very frustrating. Left with no dessert. Once again the food was excellent.

Third time dining at ITA Kitchen and first time seated outside. Food and service are reliably very good and eating outside on a beautiful fall night added to the charm. Definitely plan on returning perhaps booking one of the private tents out back for an upcoming birthday party.

Food is outstanding. Beyond outstanding actually. Outdoor setting is amazing. Service, however, was unfortunately horrible and disappointing. Maybe it was an off night and they were understaffed? All I know is we had to ask for basic things such as a cup a bunch of times, when dinner was served one of my party’s dinner was forgotten about until we had to ask where it was, etc. Again, the food is amazing and will definitely be back. Hopefully the service last night was an aberration.

Food was good, but the service was very slow. Took almost 15 minutes just to get water at the table! Young man who was the runner (I think) had long dirty nails too. Not something I would usually notice, but very obvious as he was pouring the water.

We made an outdoor reservation for a busy Saturday night. Due to the weather, we couldn’t sit outside, but they called us in advance to modify our reservation based on our preferences. We decided to still go and sit indoors at the same time as our original reservation. Based on reviews and pictures, our expectations were high and they were exceeded. Everything we ate and drank was delicious. The wait staff was fantastic. We look forward to returning in the future!

The place smelled musty and felt damp from the second you walked in. They sat us at a table next to the window where the cushions haven't been cleaned since 2015. The bread they gave us before appetizers was damp and definitely stale. We ordered the anti-pasta platter which had deli sliced provolone, canned black olives and wilted arugula. The chef has clearly phoned in in type of authentic Italian dining trading it in for pathetic, cheap alternatives in order to try to save a buck. I ordered the Vodka Chicken Parm serves over penne. The vodka sauce was flavorless. My wife had the linguine with clam sauce. It was over a pound of pasta swimming in a watered down sauce. She barely touched it. Everything was so bad that we did not order a second round of drinks and chose to skip dessert all together. We will never come back to this place and we will tell everyone we know to avoid eating here as well. Downtown Bayshore has so many other great eateries to go to. 0.0 score.

I’ll start by saying the food was excellent. They seemed to be struggling with staffing issues. Our waitress was stretched thin and didn’t have much knowledge of the menu at all. We had to ask several times for simple things, like a fork or some extra bread. The phone and online orders are constantly ringing at the hostess station and is quite annoying. We will give them a second chance because of the food.
