Tucked away on a quiet road outside Kelowna, Dahl said that the Tuscan-inspired 50-seat dining room designed by Georgie Award-winner Tara Trompetter makes the location a perfect fit for The Italian Kitchen – Lake Country.

Further, Dahl said that Ricardo’s and The Italian Kitchen share the same passion of freshly prepare dishes and no deep fryers that will continue for years to come.
