A word from Kenny's Italian Kitchen
Kenny’s Italian Kitchen serves classic "Southern Italian American" food modeled after the "Little Italy" sections of Boston and New York. These Italian American styles of veal, chicken and seafood will include Parmigiana, Picatta and Marsala. Of course Kenny's Italian Kitchen wouldn't miss out on the classic meatballs, sausage & peppers or linguini & clams to name a few.

Kenny’s Italian Kitchen is decorated with red checkered cloth table cloths, dark woods and the walls are adorned with black and white photos of friends, family and regular guests. A cozy patio and full service bar accompany the warm, friendly and comfortable atmosphere. You will swear you just dined at a neighborhood Italian joint in the Northeast.

Diner Reviews
  • "This is a wonderful low key, red checkered table cloth, dim lit, but still lively dining experience. The food is exceptional and the service is top notch. If service fails in any way to deliver the best in service, they will gladly and immediately make it right. The only negative about Kenny's is the music beat from the club next door is very annoying after 10:00 on weekends. We love Kenny's Italian and do not hesitate to meet friends there for a fun night out!"

  • "Kenny's was fantastic! My husband and I just returned from Italy and were missing the delicious cuisine, so this jewel hit the spot! Our waiter was awesome, food was delicious and fresh, and the complimentary bread literally melted in our mouth! Spot on, Kenny's!"

  • "Kenny's Italian Kitchen has a great, fun atmosphere and very good food...not outstanding, but very good. The pasta was excellent, and the fish was very good. Desserts were just ok. The service was fine, but the wait staff seemed a little disorganized for a busy place. We were pleased, but not overwhelmed, considering the outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor."

  • "Eat here often. Tried the new salmon pesto dish on the menu and was very happy with this item. The only reason I gave Service just three stars was that it was Martini Monday when all their martinis are five dollars and therefore service was a bit slow from the bar and they were jammed."

  • "The food was excellent both times I went. I had the Veal Bone in and the Chicken Picatta. I plan to go back and try the Lasagna which I hear is great. I would recommend it!!!"

  • "I made reservations for my husband and I to celebrate his birthday. The food was delicious and the server was very helpful with recommendations. I was also impressed by the delicious chocoloate mousse they gave my husband for his birthday dessert. The manager on duty also stopped by our table to wish him a happy birthday and make sure we enjoyed our evening."

  • "The restaurant has great food but if one is looking for a quiet place this is not it. Usually a busy place with lots of groups dining together. We are not bothered by it. The food selection is good and the prosciutto wrapped fried mozzarella is an awesome appetizer."

  • "As usual Kenny's Italian kitchen did not disappoint. My son usually never request a take home bag from anyplace. But Sunday was different, he said he had special plans for his leftovers; a special late night adventure."

  • "Tried Kenny's for the first time. We decided to order wine while we waited for our table. Not looking at a wine list we ordered one of the 3 choices of Cabernet offered by the glass. We were shocked when told our bill was $28.00 for the two glasses of Oberon Cabernet. I checked at Tom Thumb the following day and found the same bottle of Oberon for $22.00!! That is a ridiculous markup. For dinner I asked if I could have the salmon and vegetable plate but replace the fish for chicken; told that it was no problem. On the bill we were charged the price of the salmon. When I brought it to our server's attention she said the charge was the same regardless of the meat. What?! When our receipt came back to sign - our bill had been adjusted."

  • "Our server was Lauren and she was really good-I have never had a server refresh my martini into a chilled glass mid drink. I thought that was the coolest thing -no pun inteded. She was quietly always ready to serve and you guys were packed. Hats off to Lauren for adding just a small little twist-but hey she got 3% additional tip just for that small gesture. Food was really fresh-like homemade."

  • "The food is always wonderful. The service is friendly and attentive. It's small and has a romantic, low light ambiance but the TVs above the bar can be distracting if your guests can easily be swayed. We always enjoy dining here."

  • "Kenny's is great. The food is so good. Lots of flavor and variety. It's a small place, so it gets pretty crowded and a little loud. "

  • "Kenny's Italian is much better now, than when it first opened. The food we ordered - pizza, bread, fried mozzarella and salad was delicious. We loved the cheese croutons in the salad !"

  • "Had to wait 20 min despite having a reservation. Food was OK ... not great, not bad, ok. Service was very rushed. The restaurant was busy and they couldn't push us through fast enough. And it felt like it. With so many other choices, we won't be back."

  • "Kenny's promised to be a good dining experience after receiving strong reviews for food quality and dining experience. The ambience is cozy and the décor feels like a local neighborhood hang-out in New York. The bread was very nice, served warm with dipping oil. While not extensive, the wine list was adequate. The linguine with spicy clams was pretty tasty. The three other members of my party, however, did not seem to enjoy their meal. Each sent their pasta dishes back half-eaten. Among them, baked ziti and lasagna - two standards that should be good at any Italian restaurant. Could have been an off night, but the general consensus was that the food was average at best and probably not worth the visit. I doubt we will return."

  • "I returned to Kenny's a week after the first so-so experience I've had here. Nothing lacking this time, service was spot on, food delicious and the drinks were wonderful. I love it when the wait staff bring new fresh, cold martini glasses to exchange the warm ones. It's like getting a brand new drink. Keep it up Kenny's!"

  • "I setup a reservation at Kenny's Italian Restaurant because my wife and I enjoy Kenny's Burgers and Kenny's Smokehouse so much. I left a note with the reservation for a bottle of wine to be at the table, and that it was my wife's birthday. They were very attentive, and said happy birthday as our table was ready, when our waiter introduced himself, and even for desert had a candle ready...none of this was asked for. It was a very pleasant experience...oh, the food was divine!"

  • "We have been to Kenny's numerous times and each time had an outstanding time. Service, food and experience has always left us wanting more. But I guess every good restaurant must have it's off night--at least for us. The service was off, way off. Our server was slow, inattentive, forgetful. The poorest service we have had since coming to Kenny's. Fortunately, the group I was with helped gloss over the shortcomings of the waitstaff. Hopefully this was a one time occurrence and the next time we go will be as wonderful as we have become accustomed to!"

  • "Everything was good. Nice patio outside for the one month in the spring and one month in the fall when it's comfortable to dine outside in Dallas. Loud shrieking from the birthday girls at another table, but birthdays are always exciting I guess, even when you're old enough to drive. "

  • "We have dined at Kenny's Italian Kitchen several times but this past visit was exceptional. We sat on the patio and the weather was perfect. The detail that made this a wonderful night was the service. Laura was our waitress and she went above and beyond to make our dining experience one that we will never forget. "

  • "We had a fantastic dinner Saturday night before Mother's Day. Our waitress Laura was excellent and very friendly, attentive but not overly! My Cosmo was delicious and I love how an icy cold glass is brought over to refresh martinis. Our food was fresh and served hot and delicious. Kenny's Italian does not disappoint. Customer service is #1!"

  • "Homey venue, maybe a little close quarters. Our server Lauren was very good. Always available, but never in the way. The food was very good. Portions were large and ware served at a nice pace. Prices were moderate, but great value for the quality of the food."
