About Italian Kitchen
Alex and Jamie are proud to welcome you to The Italian kitchen Restaurant in Sunderland. With many years experience in the restaurant industry your hosts are bringing a new and exciting vision to dining at this contemporary yet intimate venue. The venue sits back from a main road into Sunderland city centre which
has the Theatre within five minutes walk.
There is a large free car park which is shared with The Mill Pub. However it does have it's own entrance and once inside you feel like you could be in a separate building.
Whilst sitting at my table i enjoyed the bustling atmosphere and chatter of the guests which mixed with the background music perfectly, neither had to fight to be heard.
Recently, totally refurbished to a very high standard both in the restaurant as well as the kitchen and bar, the decor whilst not strictly traditionally Italian is, warm and welcoming with soft reds, mauves and other shades along with beautiful black slate and wooden floors.
The restaurant will cater for around 70 guests with a couple of nicely secluded intimate areas too.
The menu is changing too. Along with Chef, Alex as you'd expect is passionate about his food and this shines through in the menu. It is not too extensive as to make choosing difficult but has some beautifully thought out dishes. Also catering for Specials both at Lunchtime and Dinner, there really is something uniquely authentic about there choices and they offer something for everyone.
A larger gluten free desert menu would be goods brownies were the only option. The manager who greeted us was not the friendliest but the waiting staff were wonderful
We planned to have the 3 course set menu. Chose our meals. Food was fantastic, service was fantastic, the bill was fantastic. Unbeknown to us the meals we had chosen was less than the cost of the 3 course menu so the bill was broken down and came in a lot less than we had planned to pay. Result! Not many places would have made us aware and would have paid full price. We would happily have paid the full price or even more for the meal we had. Will definitely be back.
Food lovely, staff welcoming, friendly and polite. Most definitely be returning 😀
Excellent food, service and value.Cant fault it in any way will definitely be back.. The mussels in cream sauce are I would say best in the North East....
Fabulous meal, surroundings and staff!
Lovely food and staff are fab. Portions are enormous only thing is noisy as very busy but that shows it's popular. We were next to the bar and the serving hatch and phone
