This time we went back to try out their brunch menu. We got off to a rocky start - waited almost 30 minutes before anyone noticed that we were sitting at the back, in the corner. Our waiter finally came, we ordered, food came. .. But wait, where’s our appy? We asked someone else about it and she said she’d get our waiter. Waiter came - turns out they didn’t have the appy (the free teaser appy) so he was going to give us dessert instead. Would’ve been nice if you gave us a heads up BEFORE our main meal. So that’s fine, at least we’re getting SOMETHING. Throughout our meal we did not get asked if we wanted freshly grated cheese or fresh pepper. We frequent Italian Kitchen quite a bit and this was a first. In addition, we did not get our water refilled and was only asked once about our meal. All the while he was quite attentive to the tables around us. We filled out their comment card and we still haven’t gotten a response since. We usually fill them out and get a thank-you postcard from the waiter. … Not impressed, Italian Kitchen. Given that there are so many other Glowbal restaurants in close proximity, Italian Kitchen will probably not be an option.
Italian Kitchen Breakfast - $12.95 (5/7)
Pretty standard breakfast platter. Loses marks on the visibly burnt bacon. But it was good nonetheless, since it’s BACON. That’s focaccia behind the massive leaf of lettuce.
Timballo Primavera - 11.95 (4/7)
Nothing special. It wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t amazing. It’s just pasta and poached eggs. It’s supposed to come with a salad but we asked for potatoes instead. When we asked our waiter what our options are, his response was “potatoes and … actually, just potatoes.” So we said yes to potatoes and he said “so you want the potatoes?” Well .. there’s really nothing else, is there?! Other than the salad that we didn’t want, which was why we asked for another option.
Oh, and he didn’t give us ketchup given that both meals had potatoes.
All in all, service was horrendous. Food was mediocre. Maybe it was just an off day? Maybe our particular waiter was having a bad day? Who knows. Sorry, Italian Kitchen.
