Italian restaurants have moved on from the red-checked tablecloth menu of overabundant red sauce, fields of melted mozzarella, and garlic, garlic, garlic. Italian Kitchen has found a place between the red-checked days familiar dishes and the more varied, ingredient-focused fare that new places showcase. The problem is consistency. When their chicken/pea pasta is on, I love the flavour and balance... More

This is the third time I came here for dinner. This time with my 2 daughters and their friends and my girlfriend before we went to Amy Schumer. The waitress (she came from Greece) was fabulous, had good wine knowledge and made sure everything went smoothly. After dinner, the chef came and talked to us, loved the story how he... More

Things didn't start very well: we ordered a bottle of wine and appetisers, half an hour later we were still waiting. Three different waiters came along asking us if we decided on our order, but nothing happened. We had to complain to the manager in order for the wine to arrive. The reason was that a large table behind us... More

I visited there twice during a 2 week business trip. My first meal was a pasta a olio with prawns. The prawns were gigantic and super fresh. I ordered a tomato and bocconcini salad as well and that was lukewarm. The tomatoes were not fresh at all (at least the cheese was) The second visit I went with 6 colleagues... More

Whenever I want a delicious, filling meal and just can't bother to try and find a new place to try, I end up at Italian Kitchen by default. An easy choice considering I've never eaten a thing here I haven't loved. I always leave over full and happy! I love pasta and they do a lot of pasta dishes and... More

We both had pizzas, not the best we have ever had, but OK. Service was excellent and the ambience was good. A bit on the pricey side, but then is was downdown Vancouver.

I was really looking forward to taking a colleague of mine to the Italian Kitchen for dinner. However, I was left somewhat disappointed. We had amazing appies. The pasta dish I had...not so much. The service was incredible. Andrew was our server. He really knows how to take care of his clients. Unfortunately, the noise level was also very high.... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
