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
  • "Like all of Kenny's restaurants, Kenny's Italian is outstanding. Kenny's Italian has become our family's go-to special occasion restaurant, and we have never had a bad experience. "

  • "We are always looking for a real Italian restaurant in Dallas, which is a challenge. This is not it, either, but it is worth a try. We booked for Easter brunch and thoroughly enjoyed Kenny's. Really good novelty martinis, so-so calamari, good wine selection, not-bad entrees, delicious cannoli. Very good service, attractive dining room (dine on the patio if the weather is nice), ambience is comfortable neighborhood place. The food is red gravy, pasta, cheese - American-style southern Italian food. I wouldn't have recognized my meal as baked ziti if that wasn't what I ordered (just a pile of ziti on a plate with red sauce and cheese on top) but it was good, of course those ingredients were good. We liked it."

  • "Kenny's never fails to ensure we have a wonderful evening. The waite staff is the best, always friendly and helpful, they know what we like and always offer great selections. The manager Chris always comes to the table to greet us and it feels like family catching up on life's events. Ryan is the best bartender/waite staff I have ever had anywhere. He made our wedding anniversary extra special, brought out a beautiful designed dessert just for us! This place just keeps getting better each time we go."

  • "The service and the food are great every time. Everyone in the family loves the food. I think the food has more flavor than some of the standard italian fare you find in the city. We also appreciate that they offer great tasting selections for the gluten free!"

  • "I didn't know anything about Kenny's Italian Kitchen before this visit, other than that it was related to Kenny's Wood Fired Grill, which we love. Kenny's Italian Kitchen was just OK in comparison. The staff was wonderful, and the drinks menus are good, but the food was just OK. I had the bone-in veal parmigiana, which was enormous but kind of chewy and not very flavorful. I probably won't go out of my way to visit Kenny's Italian Kitchen again, what with Kenny's WFG just a block away."

  • "All of the Kenny's restaurants are special and you can depend that the food will be great. Our waiter was really outstanding, personable without hovering. The ambiance was great, especially for north Dallas. We had a group of 4 women celebrating birthday's They allowed us to enjoy ourselves without hurrying us out so they could turn the table as so many other restaurants do. I would highly recommend it for any occasion."

  • "The Food was flavorful, but the veal was all 70% fat. It looked wonderful, but most of it was left on my plate when I was done. The service was great and prices not too bad."

I love the service I receive, and whenever I reserve through Open Table, I am always treated like royalty and I never have to wait for my table. I really love using this service and especially love going to Kenny's Italian!"

  • "When I made my reservation I was excited about this place. I found it on Google and it looked promising. When we went in however the place is very dark.. I don't mean a little dark. I used to work in a steak house with dim light. This was not that. The food was good but more like what you would expect from one of the Italian chains an not a place like this. The alfredo sauce tasted sweet, which was new for me. There were a lot of family's and older people. This is not a romantic Italian date place."

  • "This was my second time at Kenny's Italian. The first time I went with my husband and another couple and we were seated outside. The service was fantastic and I had been wanting to go again. My uncle was visiting from Michigan and we took him to Kenny's. The food and service were impeccable. The staff were friendly. My uncle is a big foodie and he loved it and was impressed. I am already having a craving to go back here. Highly recommended."

  • "Great service this time at Kenny's I believe our servers name was Nicole. Very helpful and friendly. Kenny's very was busy, but always stopped by the table to pour wine or see what else we needed. Food was awesome! Veal Parm and a special with Lobster, prawns and some other seafood trearts were both terrific. Alas, no room for dessert."

  • "Love, love this place....service, food and ambience is fantastic! By far my favorite Italian restaurant....the food is mouthwatering and our waiter was very energic, informative and attentive. Visited for my cousin's 40th birthday and was able to schedule reservations on Sat evening (day of event) at the last minute. We were treated exceptionally well and plan on going back until we try everything on the menu! Chicken picatta and bow tie special w/shrimp was delish!!! Love this place!"

  • "Food was very good; nice selection. We were given Happy Hour prices at our dinner table which was nice that we didn't have to sit at the bar and we were offered the prices; didn't have to ask. I really enjoyed the atmosphere. The food had a little kick to it which I enjoyed. Too many times you can get bland Italian food and this wasn't. I will go back for sure!"

  • "Osso bucco very good, one of the best I've had. Spaghetti w/ sausage, sauce could have came from a jar, sausage was good. Veal chop was so over seasoned it should have been sent back. Appetizer of steamed mussels not cleaned, cream sauce almost made up for it. Service was uneven, appetizers were really slow to come out, Waitperson seemed to be trying hard but had not been trained very well."
