We popped in to the Italian kitchen for a quick midweek dinner. The waitress was lovely; very friendly and helpful. The kitchen zinc pizza was great with each slice having a different topping! The roasted veg salad was full of flavour and fresh.
Would definitely recommend a meal here. Although we sat inside, the courtyard looked lovely too.

My boyfriend and I have visit The Italian Kitchen often and we just absolutely love it! The food and service is excellent. My boyfriend and I enjoy sharing the starters which is more than enough for us as we find the restaurant makes quite big portions, which we love. The atmosphere at The Italian Kitchen is wonderful and sets the tone for a romantic night out with your loved one.

As with the same named restaurant in the same chain in Tokai, the food just as good, but likewise this place like a morgue at lunchtime as only 2 other tables occupied when we visited. Strange as other restaurants in the area all buzzing - maybe due to its location at the very rear of the Newlands Quarter means it is a bit hidden out of sight.
The only plus was that we could converse with our friends quite normally without having to shout and hear against the usual hubbub of voices one usually endures in South African restaurants.
Pizzas, pasta and fish and chips all good and reasonably priced and corkage at ZAR 30 fair. Would revisit.

You could easily miss this, its so hidden inside the newlands quarter centre. The night we were there, only a few tables occupied. Good service and excellent food. The entrees sounded so good on the menu, that we couldnt go past them. Shared 4 entrees with my partner. They were all excellent. A day or so later i ordered take away, and when i went to pickup, the restaurant was quite busy and it was clear the wait staff was struggling, so i imagine the service would have been slow. I had to wait a considerable time for my pizza, which was cold by the time i got it home.

Their pizzas are very very good. We go there as family when we feel like a pizza or even as take aways.
