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.
Everything was perfect.... We order far too much but were able to get a doggy bag 😁
Been coming since it opened excellent food and value for money would recommend to anyone
From the Welcome to the service and the food. Awesome place. Thank you.
Short and sweet, great food, great atmosphere and professional and attentive service. Couldn't fault it, been before and will be going again soon.
A return visit for us when we decided to sample the fish and chips. My wife chose veg instead of chips which was no problem for the staff. The fish, pots of tea and bread and butter were like a dream from the past. Perfectly cooked and served. See you next week. Thanks Peter and Valerie.

Can't fault the staff - they are friendly, kind and always willing to help where ever they can. They take a genuine interest in their customers. The menu is full of great choices and is also great value for money.
Fantastic service, great food and friendly staff
14 of us visited the Italian kitchen for a works Christmas lunch. We ordered from the festive menu which had lots of choice. Where do I begin. The food was outstanding. Everyone commented on how lovely the food was. The turkey was moist and tender, the vegetables cooked perfectly, very generous portions. Carrot cake with cinnamon ice cream was delicious though I was told the cheesecake was to die for. The waiters were attentive but not overbearing. The price of drinks were reasonable. Please go you will not be disappointed. Your hardest decision will be what to choose.
As always the service was amazing, the food was beautiful and we really enjoyed our Christmas night out. Thank you
Great food and service only issue was parking.
Great customer service and excellent value for money.
