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.
Fantastic place to eat, no complaints whatsoever, highly recommended and no doubt will become a regular place to dine for everyone attending
Excellent place to visit for friendly service, good food and great atmosphere!
This was our 2nd visit. Once again the food was amazing. Huge portions. The mussels in white wine and garlic sauce were fab (my fave) our party of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our meals staff were lovely the atmosphere brill. Even though the restaurant was very busy when we arrived. It still felt as if you were the only party there. As the staff were very attentive. Definitely 5 stars from us. We will be returning again
Fantastic food and service. Been here multiple times now and have never had a bad meal. My favourite Italians by miles
Wonderful as usual!
Brilliant experience and beautiful food. Great with my 6yr old too, engaged with her and helped her make her own pizza, making her feel special. Will definitely be back
The food, service and prices are excellent. The atmosphere depends on who is in on the night. The staff are always welcoming and attentive. We keep coming back proving it is great.
Would like to see more variety of menu but food very good.
We arrived about 15 minutes early so had a drink in the bar, we were told they would come to get us unfortunately no one did. 10 mins after our booking I had To go and ask if it was ready. This is the only criticism I have. Food was hot, tasty and plentiful. Service quick.
Amazing food and served really quickly (great for work lunch when we dont have much time). Everyone commented how good the food was!
Very friendly staff, great service, food was delicious!
Exceptionally good quality food highly recommend Italian kitchen the staff are friendly, Helpful and the restaurant is inviting and I’ve never had a bad meal ever. We eat here regularly 2-3 times a month. You must try Sunday lunch in or takeout you’ll not find a better roast anywhere
We had a wonderful meal, the service was excellent and the staff free fabulous. Our only niggle was that it was a little too noisy to have a chat.
Early bird special makes it good value. Will be returning for Christmas menu!
