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 great night. Thank you.
Lovely meal excellent service good price although it was busy we were not hurried great dining experience
Excellent as per. Lady who served us was excellent too. Food was lovely and think the value for money here is great. Always busy. Don’t change anything you have there guys!!

Always our favourite place to go. They know us so well that some of the staff don't even need to ask what we want! Love this place, so friendly and welcoming to everyone.
Fantastic night as always. Staff really friendly and helpful, food delicious and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be returning.

Excellent every time. 😊👍
Everything was perfect, when Rebecca noticed that she has left her teeth brace on the side plate she asked the waiter to look for it, he found it, he didn't have to keep saying it was his fault, it was hers, but we thank him for finding it and hope the tip money went to him. Will come again thanks for a lovely evening.
