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.

    Good "Italian" ambiance, made us recall some of the old-school Italian restaurants in Kansas City. Our table was ready when we arrived five minutes late, server had our bottle order taken and on the table in under five minutes. We were never rushed, stayed two hours and had lots of left-overs to take home. Bone-in veal perfectly seasoned, Osso Bucco lovely. Wine list competent, very reasonable pricing.

    I've been here several times before and always come back. Why? Because they offer gluten free options (rare for an Italian restaurant!) and because the staff always bends over backwards, both in friendliness and service. I will definitely be back for more!

    Our first visit and it won't be our last. Everything was delicious , from the bread to the desserts. The Italian chopped salad was a very good. I had the osso bucco and it was the best I've had since little Italy in New York . Give this place a try and you will not be disappointed.

    This is our special go to place. The food is always great and the service is outstanding. We are regulars. And have tried most dishes. They are not shy to pour a descent drink. THANK you! They seem to know when we need to talk about family issues,and leave us alone. Or if were on a time crunch, they move our order along as fast as they can. We really appreciate there friendliness.

    The food is excellent. Good drinks. Good service. But it was very crowded, very loud, especially for a week night. It seemed kind of warm too. If you don't mind the crowds & volume then it's a good place. They have Grey Goose on tap.

    Excellent authentic Italian dining. There was a bit of wait even with the reservation, but once seated, the service was super fast! Excellent perfectly warm homemade bread & dipping olive oil/balsamic vinaigrette sauce. We both ordered the pasta (gnocchi & ravioli) and it was excellent. Dark quiet atmosphere. Great quality of food for the price. Had a lovely Reisling as well. Would definitely recommend to others.

    This is a great small neighborhood Italian place...but with world class food. The only negative about KIK is the club next door gets real loud after 10:00pm and it can be annoying. We avoid late nights on the weekend at KIK but it remains our favorite place for Italian food in Dallas area.

    The food was very good. The only reason I did not give the "overall experience" five stars is because I prefer a quieter restaurant. It is very loud at Kenny's and I had trouble hearing the other people at my table.

    This was our second time at Kenny's. We've made it a new tradition, as of this past Friday, to go to Kenny's around the 27th to celebrate our 27th. The first time we visited Kenny's, Samantha was our server. She recommended several dishes (which we tried and were stuffed) and was very attentive. This past visit, Robin serve us. She was sweet and energetic throughout the whole visit. Although it was getting to be a bit busy, she made sure that she checked on us often. The friendly and caring staff of Kenny's makes the restaurant a great find in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

    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 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.

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.
