When we arrived, Chef Giovanni greeted us at the table and made some great suggestions from the menu. He was very friendly and welcoming. The pasta was some of the best I've ever had. I lived in Italy for over 5 years and the the linguine gamberi and penne pomodoro reminded me of the great tastes so familiar to many... More

Two friends & I made a reservation for dinner at the Italian Kitchen, in an effort to 'carb load' prior to the BMO 1/2 Marathon. We were so pleased with our choice! From our initial greeting by staff, amazing attention to detail, fabulous food & wine and the amazing Giovanni. We were treated like queens and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere,... More

My fiancé and I originally planned on going to another restaurant, but passed by the Italian Kitchen on the way. We walked in and the hostess and Mr. Giovanni Trigona (the head chef) met us at the door. The restaurant was packed but we were lucky enough to get a table in the upstairs section of the restaurant. The entire... More

Buratta and prosciutto appetizer was a great start. We enjoyed the dinner on a lovely evening by the upstairs window..... great people watching on the street below. We'll definitely go back on our next Vancouver visit.

You must try the gnocchi with duck confi. Prices are reasonable. Service excellent! House wine choice was also very good. Easy to find beside Tiffanys down town. It was recommended to me by a friend. Glad we tried it.

Quality and quantity of good were great. Service was exceptional. I found the restaurant a little loud and warm, though.

We ate here on the recommendation of the concierge at the Metropol Hotel. The menu was very extensive and although there weren't many obvious vegetarian choices the waiter pointed out that any pasta dish could be modified for vegetarians. The food was excellent and the white wine we had was excellent and not too pricy. Highly recommend this restaurant. We... More

We decided on Italian and this was rated well. The place was busy and looked very modern. The food option were great and we loved the food. Our only complaint is that the food came out before the drinks. Not sure why the bar took longer than the kitchen, but all tasted great.

Into Vancouver on my first night after 36 hours of travel from Aus - needed a light but exciting feed to lift my spirits and set me up for a good sleep and jet lag recovery. The Italian Kitchen was perfect, a taster of meatballs, finished with the arrabbiata at the bar while watching the kitchen work their magic doing... 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.
