The food we had (forgot what exactly it was) was unique and delicious. The place was quiet for a Saturday evening but the staff were new and rather untrained. The waiter was confused for a bit when asked to lead us to our table by the receptionist and he didn't remember the specials of the day on top of his... More

Because today is my friend's birthday, my friend and I had a dinner at 271 West. We ate the daily pasta, steak pizza, and wonderful spinach dip. After finishing the meal, we told the owner that we came here for celebrating my friend's birthday. He asked us the plan after, and we told him that we are international students so... More

This was my first time at 271 West and it won't be my last. The service was warm and welcoming, we didn't feel rushed at all even though we arrived close to closing. There was an overall relaxed, and romantic atmosphere which was really nice. They give you a generous portion of food which is delicious. I highly recommend the... More

Went here for the first time recently for lunch with a friend, and we're both impressed. The service was great from the start and the restaurant was very clean and professional. We both got the 271 West Burger with fries and it was great. Overall would definitely go agin in the future.

We were visiting Kitchener for an event and had time for a meal beforehand. We checked Trip Advisor reviews and decided to give 271 West a try. It was great! Nice atmosphere, family owned and operated, and super Italian food. We shared the Camembert appetizer and a salad. We had the pasta special (yum) and the red pepper sausage pasta.... More

My wife and I were in Kitchener for the day and just by luck stumbled onto this great restaurant! I had the homemade pasta (you can tell its homemade) and my wife had the salmon. Both meals were delicious from the appetizers right to the coffee and dessert. The owner is very friendly and we had a nice talk with... More

Had the Raviolini and creme brule. Server was very freindly. Restaraunt has a comfortable atmosphere. Food did not take long and was delicious. Well priced and the music is good! Very worthwhile!

Recently moved to Kitchener from Montreal with my wife. We were worried about finding good food in our new town. Our worries were in vain. The prices at 271 West are reasonable and the food is spectacular. Moreover, the service is professional and friendly. For a meal, expect to pay in the 20-25 dollars per main course range (average), and... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time lastnight for a special birthday supper. The food was delicious and flavourful! I enoyed every mouthful, from the starter salad to the delectable desserts. It was very busy, but the ambience was good, and it was great to talk to the attentive owner multiple times. Worth every penny!
