This is my favorite Italian restaurant. It hits all the right spots with food , wine , creativity , ambience and service. I especially love the share platters of Pastas / meats / Appetizers.

We went for the Friday special (pasta + wine for $12 before 3pm -- great deal!) and had a wonderful time. We got the linguine al pesto and spaghetti alla bolognese, and both were good. Head Chef Giovanni was incredibly kind, funny and welcoming, stopping at our table for multiple conversations about Italy, his life, and his experience in Canada.... More

It was our first time visiting Italian Kitchen and we tried it out because of good reviews. We weren't disappointed. The service was impeccable and excellent! Dishes we ordered were Crispy Fried Calamari, Garlic Bread, Pasta Platter, Proscuitto Pizza and Cheese Pizza from the kids menu. I have to say that all of them are superb and very tasty! Even...

We visited with 2 children and both the food and service was great. Children's menu had lots of reasonably priced options, and the pasta dishes off the main menu were generous and delicious - well worth a visit!

Amazing workers and the food was amazing. The manager Dylan greeted us with excitement and some champagne to congratulate my girlfriend success in completing her coarse. (Thank you Dylan!) They were able to help set up the table with flowers i brought in before we came and had a nice dining table by the window. The food came out at... More

We made reservations for the Italian Kitchen at the recommendation of our hotel concierge. The restaurant has two floors and a "live" kitchen that is viewable on the first level. We were seated at the second level. The menu is diverse and offers a wide variety very authentic Italian dishes. From salads to main dishes to dessert, there are many... More

Saw this highly recommend on TripAdvisor so decided to give this restaurant a try. The first suprise was the price, for a very fine dining feel you are only paying casual dining pricing. The menu selection is not only very good, the prices and servicing sizes are very generous. 1 main pasta dish could easily be shared by 2 adults... More

Really enjoyed eating here. Place, staff and food were excellent. Highly recommended whilst you're in Vancouver. Sharing platters were huge arguably too big. We ordered one for three sharing - it was enough for 4-5 easily. Giovanni and Eltie were great hosts.

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.
