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.
Timing is important. Table booked for 7. Don’t expect to have to wait for 20 mins for my table. If you know it’s a busy time, don’t accept a 7pm booking and suggest a suitable alternative. Having said that everything else is always 100% Never had a bad meal. Thank you.
Food is always delicious and piping hot. Staff are lovely, very friendly and helpful. Service is fantastic from start to finish. I've been eating here for years and will no doubt be back in the not too distant future.
The food was really nice, did find the portion sizes larger than expected and struggled to finish my meal
