This place used to be great. A winning formula; simple menu done well. The updated menu and wine lists now come with larger price tags attached. Welcome to $15 dollar house wines. As of late it seems as though all of their dishes are not prepared fresh. For instance the lasagna was swimming in water, a tell tale sign of... More

The Italian Kitchen is a very home style eatery with a veery pleasant ambiance. The menu is more than just Italian fare and we actually ordered a seared Ahi salad that was quite nicely prepared.The pesto was a bit bland and did not distinguish itself. Our server was Elisa and she was just great. This was a nice find!

The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was the menu was somewhat limited. Had the calamari (traditional, non-breaded), with veggies in a broth, very good. Minestrone and baked garlic were tasty as well (the first batch of garlic was over-cooked, but was happily and quickly replaced). It was a quiet night, but felt like the kind of place... More

14 people in our group. 90 minutes wait time. 2 people liked their meals. 2 others got food poisoning. I returned my meal after 2 bites as the pasta wasn't fully cooked. Almost no table service. Beautiful room however, minus the paintings of snoop dogg and friends. 😂😂😂

The food, service and ambience are all consistently great for a dinner out or a celebration. I like that you can make a reservation on line. Dessert is a must after a delicious dinner! Big portions so you can take some home for lunch (or a midnight snack).

For the first time we had the pleasure of eating at The Italian Kitchen Company. Great location in downtown Vernon; it's beautiful fantastic restaurants like this that the downtown core needs and is lacking. I could see this restaurant being in downtown Kelowna and being extremely successful. The ambiance is awesome. Service was friendly and efficient. Their portions of food... More

We are a well established Italian restaurant that has been in operation for the last 21 years. We focus on local wines but have a nice selection of new and old world wines as well. The atmosphere is casual upbeat and friendly.
