For over 25 years, the Sicilian Pasta Kitchen has provided its guests with the highest level of quality and service. All the dishes are prepared with an emphasis on using the freshest, prime ingredients thus honouring our old-world Italian roots while incorporating a fresh new approach.
​Our dining area is simple yet sophisticated which caters to both the casual and the formal. We often host large parties such as office parties or birthdays (no we don't mind taking a group picture) as well as private functions. Many of our guests however, have been coming for years and we are very grateful for their continued patronage.
We have a charming downtown patio for those who like to enjoy the weather with their meal. We also provide free guest parking at the rear of the restaurant.
Whether you be Edmontonian, Sicilian or somewhere in between, we look forward to serving you. Buon appetito!

The service and food were beyond excellent! The chef produced exceptionally good food with wonderfully layered tastes. The server was not only kind, but she was efficient and considerate. We will be back and would not hesitate to refer friends.

We were generally very happy with the experience. How ever, the service was a bit slow. The server was slow taking our order after the drinks were served. Once the order was into the kitchen, the food arrived in good time. Food was tasty and the overall experience was good. We would go back.

Long time patron of SPK but we hadn’t visited in almost a year. What a mistake! The food is as good as always - 5 stars - and the service was outstanding. Don’t make the same mistake by overlooking this little gem in the downtown core!

This is usually one of my favourite places in Edmonton; but my birthday celebration this past Sunday was disappointing and a little lack-lustre. The kitchen and service was ok, though nothing to write home about. A few specifics: they ran out of my favourite gamberi in garlic sauce; the aperol spritz was so watered down, it tasted like barely-orange flavoured ice water. I usually have four. This night, I did not order another. That our server didn't ask if I wanted a top-up probably made it easier; she didn't ask about a lot of things. Tables by the window are freezing. One by one our guests put on their winter coats. Our server didn't notice, and this was troubling. Serving portions were off, too. One of my guests who ordered the same entree as me, got a huge, beautiful piece of salmon, while I, the birthday boy, got a dried-out end piece less than half the size. I couldn't finish it and had it boxed up for the dog. He wasn't to thrilled with it either. I didn't have the heart to send it back to the kitchen because I didn't want my birthday to be about complaints. But this night, the deficiencies were adding up. Our usually perky and gregarious server appeared tired this night, and while a night not-on-your-game is perfectly understandable for any one, being that it was my birthday made it especially disappointing. I will return because this place is usually so reliable. Will try to stick to Fridays and Saturdays when Fernando and Teresa are around.

The food was great as always. The service though was lacklustre. We waited quite a while for the waiter to take our food order after he said he would “be right back”. Once the food was served, we never saw him again. He didn’t check to see if our order was okay nor to pour our wine which isn’t normal . I sat with my plate pushed to the side for 20 minutes before he finally returned . It was busy but not super busy and he passed us every time he went to and from the back - it wasn’t like we were in a dark corner. Not what I would expect based on previous visits

I marked lower on the noise this time because there was a football game on and a group of men seemed to think they were at a sports bar instead of a restaurant .

The wine, and main courses were amazing and the service was excellent! The bruschetta seemed like it was premade and not over fresh but still not bad.

A true favourite, always spectacular. Seafood, salads, and pastas without rival in Edmonton. Pizza, not so much. Service is decidedly attentive, without being intrusive. Well looked after and wanting for nothing. Love this place!

First time at the SPK, and we were pleased! The portion sizes are very large and the food is fantastic!
The service was alright, we may have been left alone for too long; didn’t get second round of beverages for a while.
Overall it was a wonderful experience, would recommend for a special occasion or a date.

We. choose to eat here a few times a year, as the experience is consistently very good.

Not sure if the recipe has changed, or the chef, but the sauce was stronger and cheesier than normal. A bit too much so.

And the prices have gone up since the last time.

Other than that, the experience was great.

For lunch on a weekday, I booked the reservation with the app shortly before we arrived and there were no issues; we were greeted and seated promptly.
It was our first time here as we were wanting Italian and SPK was one of the top suggestions and reviews were good. The restaurant was very clean and the ambiance was very nice.
Our server was very friendly, helpful and attentive. We wanted to try a variety of things so our server helped us by suggesting the Piatto Assortitto which allowed us to choose 2 pasta options and we also chose the lunch combo Pizzetta.
We were starving and when the food arrived, we were almost disappointed with the portion size, however it turned out to be more than enough and we even had some leftovers to take home.
We would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back again! Thank you!

The food was excellent and came out quite fast. But our server, after dropping off our appetizers, didn’t come back to see how it was, we needed more bread and had to get another server to get it for us. She also didn’t notice our drinks were empty. She did mention she was new. But the restaurant only had 3 other tables with customers, so it was a slow night. Otherwise the food was delicious as always, and we’ll still keep coming.

Loved the arancini, the pasta could have used more garlic as it was generic in flavor.
Portions were really big probably share next time.

This is a nice spot for a meal with a special friend or two. The menu offers plenty of pasta based choices with some surprisingly creative and inspired blends of flavours. It can be noisy as there are some larger crowd tables.

One of our party has allergies. And it looked like the slapped the veal on a pan without any spices or other seasoning. It was bland and not appealing
Allergies does not mean cardboard

The food was unseasoned, overall really mediocre. Pizza crust was undercooked, carbonara was exceptionally dry with no flavour as well as the bread served was dry.

This reservation was for Mother's Day brunch. When I looked at the menu it indicated that brunch was going to be a breakfast style buffet. When we arrived at the restaurant for and were seated we received menus with no breakfast items on them and there was no sign of a buffet. When I asked the host about it I was advised that it was too difficult for them to produce a breakfast and lunch on such a busy day so it would be menu only with lunch items. I was very disappointed in this as I was anticipating breakfast. We would have left except there were no other options that day. The food and service were still good but I likely will think twice before going here again.
