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.
Always consistently good, great service, great food, generous portions & good prices.
This was one of a number of visits over the years and as usual, everything was excellent, as always. If you've never been, try it, it's well worth a visit and is excellent value for money.
I went here for my anniversary lovely place
Very nice all round . Portion were too big for me but very good quality. I will definitely be going back
excellent as always
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.
Great food as always and service excellent as ever - also great value for money!
