Our History

HOW WE BECAME The Italian Kitchen Lake Country

Who's the ideal person to show you around the city?  Someone local who shares your interests, right?  That's why friends and visitors from the Okanagan and beyond, choose our restaurant as a past loved favorite when it was Ricardo's Mediterranean Kitchen, to where it has evolved today, as The Italian Kitchen Lake Country.

When you're travelling, time is precious.  You want to get the most out of it.  You want to find that hidden gem of a neighborhood restaurant, you want to explore, and you absolutely want that Okanagan wine we are famous for!  And guess what?  You've found us!

We're different. We want to be that restaurant you love coming to for special occasions, romantic dates, live music serenading you on Thursday nights, a super fun patio to chill out in summer, and most importantly - that memorable food you can't stop talking about! With our incredible team to give you the best service and experience, we truly aim to be your favorite restaurant.

And Now


Located in Holiday Park Resort, technically addressed as Kelowna, but we see ourselves as part of Lake Country and we're happy to serve regular customers and visitors from the Okanagan and beyond.  

You'll see a lot of familiar faces here.  Many of the previous staff remain and share the enthusiasm and excitement of our new beginning.  Our menu is based on a mix of those much-loved classics the restaurant was founded on, plus exciting new creations and more to be introduced as we evolve.

We hope to see you soon!  Call any time for reservations 250-766-6810 or book online.  Come on out and meet us at The Italian Kitchen Lake Country!
