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.

  • "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."

  • "We had the Chicken Parmigiana and Chicken Marsala. Both were outstanding. Definitely a place to return to. I would also recommend making a reservation in advance so you don't have to wait for a table."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "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."

  • "We haven't had many places in the Dallas area that serve such good meatballs. We will return."

  • "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. "

  • "This is one of the most consistent restaurants in North Dallas. Service is always good. Food is always great. Portions are large so go easy on the awesome fresh baked bread. Love me some Kenny's. "

  • "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!"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "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 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. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "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."

  • "I booked a table at Kenny's Italian Kitchen as a second choice to a nearby restaurant that was full. Boy was I glad that it was. The food was excellent, the staff was generous and accomodative. It was a lovely experience. I only rated the service with 3 stars because or server was new and hadn't quite gotten the hang of it yet. We asked for a second loaf of bread that never came and our tea and water glasses were not kept full. But I'll definitely go back again. "
