Our Story

In operation for over 20 years, the ITK has become a favourite among locals in Vernon BC. The Italian Kitchen prides itself on its excellent kitchen and front end employees and has won many awards from 'Okanagan Life Magazine'.

Located in a historic, beautifully restored, 1930's brick building in downtown Vernon, it boasts a wonderful open kitchen, where the Chef's flambe and fill the restaurant with natural Italian aromas. Downtown visitors are often spotted watching busy cooks through the large street side windows.
