Trattoria Italian Kitchen Restaurant Review: Home-style, flavor-packed Italian dishes at modest prices keep the crowds coming from lunch through late. Settle in with a glass of wine from a well-chosen list that boasts mostly Italian labels as well as a few gems from British Columbia and California. Next, share an antipasto platter loaded with Sicilian calamari, huge signature meatballs, prawns, crispy chickpeas, mushrooms, tuna and more while you check out the menu. Hearty pastas (gluten-free is an option), veal Parmigiana, and chicken piccata or saltimbocca tempt. Consider crab, lobster and shrimp cannelloni and linguine carbonara, along with margherita and carpaccio pizzas, too. The crowd-pleasing dessert platter is loaded with tastes of everything: zeppole al cioccolato (Italian-style donuts), Bombay chai crème brûlée, tiramisu, flourless chocolate torte, lemon and strawberry tart, and macaroons. Service is prompt and knowledgeable.
