Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35
Ranked: #4 of 16 restaurants in Gold Coast

Using organic, local, ethically sourced ingredients, Italian Kitchen Company are on a mission to serve you mouth-watering Italian just like Nonna used to make.

The interior is plain and simple and adopts a no-frills attitude. The white tiles that pave the walls give the place a clean, pure feel, much like its menu. If it's a nice day stretch out on their cutesy patio and watch the world go by.

Get the organic ball rolling with some QLD jumbo king prawns or some crunchy tomato bruschetta. The mains menu is comprised of guaranteed crowd-pleasers like spaghetti with Australian seafood and a pappardelle with a tender lamb shank ragu that's been stewing for an impressive eight hours. Imagine the flavour! There are heaps of vegetarian options too like penne with eggplant and a spinach and ricotta ravioli.

Unlike the food menu, the wine menu is sourced from around the world. There are also household lagers and beers like Asahi, Peroni and Coopers to help while away the hours whilst you chill on the sun-soaked patio.

What can you say about perfect Italian food? It was sensational! We walked up the couple of stairs, and were greeted enthusiastically and seated quickly. Our drinks order was taken, water brought to our table, and we set to perusing the menus.
I was surprised and delighted to find that the menu was not overburdened with myriad dishes clamouring for attention, and we were able to make our decisions very quickly.
The Calamari and the Grilled Prawns for our entrees with a beer. The Calamari was great, cooked just right to melt in your mouth, while the Prawns were incredible! Big juicy prawns grilled with just the right amount of char for flavour, I wished I'd just ordered several dishes of the prawns, however, I was delighted with the spaghetti course, the Crab Papardelle was luscious and tasty, with a divinely simple sauce, thankfully the waitress had warned us how good the sauces were and advised us to get some bread to soak up the excess (one of my favourite past times anyway), the Lamb Ragout Pappardelle was meaty unctuous slow cooked goodness, and also went well with the bread after! (Plates cleaned completely before they were cleared). The wine list was superb and uncomplicated, and we both had a nice red with the main meal (A Merlot, and a Shiraz both very drinkable).
We loved our visit, the service was excellent, the pasta al dente, the sauces tasty but oh those prawns! We can't wait to return!

The service and food was so delicious!! Particularly the gnocchi. It was like little clouds of potato melting in my mouth. There wasn’t one person at my table who didn’t want more of everything including the gnocchi. I spoke to the chef on the way out and told him how fabulous the food was and he told me all the pasta was made onsite!! Wow! You could really tell it was made with love. Definitely dine here again.

Well, the Gold Coast certainly has a lot of choice for Italian restaurants but we hand down made the best choice!
IKC was absolutely delightful.
The outdoor seats we were given were perfect for an ocean breeze and so cute under the hundreds of fairy lights that line the ceiling.
The staff were all very kind and helpful throughout the evening.
A smaller menu but everything looked tantalising. We chose the bread (that olive oil and balsamic glaze to dip - oh so good), the white anchovies which were so so fresh and a perfect quantity.
Then for mains, we were carb loading for a run race the next day, so we focused on the parpadelle lamb ragu (so. much. lamb!) and the gnocchi. The flavours in both were incredible and the portion sizes were huge.
If only we lived on the GC, we’d frequent here very often!

Amaizing food, staff friendly . We loved the experience.

Oh my gosh the gnocchi melts in your mouth like butter. I knew it would be good because we read that they make it there homemade. But I never imagined THAT good! We will definitely go back again.

Italian Kitchen is a warm and welcoming authentic Italian eatery in a great location. My partner and I celebrated our 4th anniversary and could not have picked a better place. The service was genuinely friendly, the cocktails great and the food absolutely delicious. If you are a meat eater, the lamb ragu is a must try! And the Tiramisu - was one of the best we've had in our lifetime. Thank you Italian Kitchen Co, we had the best night and will be back for more in the future!

We had a wonderful evening at the Italian Kitchen Company. The restaurant is a cosy, modest space conveying a feeling of being part of a family for a delicious home cooked meal. The serving sizes are generous, and the home made pasta delicious. The homemade tomato pasta sauce was exceptional.

The food was nice but without first table, way too expensive.
The seafood pasta was a bit too oily for me but the squid and scallops were cooked really well.
The lamb ragu was just a little bland. It was missing some red wine and herbs.
The portion sizes were very good.
If we had to pay full price for this, we wouldn't go back.

- dined at Italian Kitchen Company on

Food fabulous. Location poor. Service just ok. Wine / cocktails expensive for this style is restaurant.
We ordered octopus and calamari for entree. Both were delicious. Lamb ragu pasta and market seafood pasta for mains. Both were delicious, although the seafood pasta only had a couple of prawns and some calamari - no fish or other seafood. Somewhere disappointing. Generous portions.
Restaurant overlooks a carpark and if seated outside, the highway is noisy.
Waitress was attentive initially, but service dropped off throughout the evening, and it was hard to get her attention.
My wine glass had a chip in the rim.
We were seated on the verandah area. Children belonging to some inside dinners came outside to play and were very busy running around next to our table, unsupervised by parents, and this very much lessened the quality of our dining experience. I feel the staff should have controlled the situation.

The Italian Kitchen Company is one of our favourite places on first table. The food is always Devine and we always eat way too much and never make it to dessert. Next time I am definitely trying the tiramisu!

Wish I could give this place a good review but sadly our experience was nothing short of utterly disappointing!!!!! Waited over an hour for our meals, got the entree wrong, wasn’t given any cutlery when our meals finally did arrive and were met with an eye roll when asked if we could have some!!! The “owner” said she would look at our bill to see what she could do when we were done, we were offered a free desert instead when all we wanted to do was get out of there!!! Such a massive let down as it was our wedding anniversary... I would recommend going somewhere else cause even with the first table discount it was extremely overpriced for watery revolting bland pasta! And $8.00 for two slices of stale bread!!!!

When we arrived we found out they had not booked in our reservation, but luckily they had room for us otherwise it would have been awkward. The staff were overall friendly and hospitable, however, they were sometimes hard to get hold of when the night got busier. The food was good, however it took around an hour to get our mains which is a bit long, even considering we did get an entre too. Was a bit dissapointed to realise that the water was not included considering it was just table water. I am appreciative of the complimentary bread after we changed our order, that was very nice of them. Overall it was a good experience, just not an amazing one I was expecting for the price.

The food was really quite very good. Market seafood with spaghetti- 2 king prawns, 2 scallops and squid was cooked perfectly. My wife asked for the gnocchi without bacon, which they were happy to oblige. The gnocchi itself was soft and fluffy in a delicious rich cream garlic sauce.

There was a lengthy delay between the starter and the mains - a little over half an hour. There were five tables occupied, and being first table we were in the first few dinners to order. If we had paid full price I might have complained over the delay, however the staff were lovely and the food was worth waiting for.

We had a lovely evening.

The food was fantastic, we loved the grilled calamari and the gnocchi was a favourite of the table. We also ordered the crab pappardelle which didn’t have much flavour to it. Our drinks came out super quick and the girls were lovely. The food was much slower to come out, and the serving size was quite small for the price.
