This was my third visit, each time with different friends or family. The food and wine have been invariably excellent; we have been able to sample many selections from the menu and enjoyed them all. This last visit was very early Sunday evening and there were lots of children. They were accommodated with no fuss and didn't disturb the other diners at all. I have only two minor complaints, possibly related to my advanced age -- the light level in the back dining room is too low -- not romantic, just difficult to read the menu and to see the food -- and the front room does get awfully noisy. But the food is great and the service friendly.

Just really great food. Was truly impressed. Veal meatballs alone are worth the trip. Nicest service. A winner!

I enjoyed the restaurant, service and staff. I would say that it would be nice to have a person answer the phone instead of an answering machine to make it more personal.

What a treat! My husband and I loved it!
Food was delicious. We had the robiola pizza, pappardelle with white bolognese, scallops and pulled pork.
The service was attentive and quick.
Best place in Ardsley to eat.

Wow. I am not usually impressed
Wow. I am not usually impressed with Italian cooking, but every dish I've had at Italian Kitchen has been exquisite. REALLY really great food!!! It is now my go-to favorite for dining out.

the two dishes we had, a potato soup and the pasta dish were excellent, Dessert an apple tart also excellent: one comment: Bread that was served was ice cold. Would like to be served bread that is warm, like most restaurants do. Cold doesn't get it. service.

Incredible food. Both vegetables
Incredible food. Both vegetables and meat dishes are cooked to perfection with a beautiful presentation. Moderate prices. Attentive staff. Pleasant place to sit, talk and relax. This place is now my 1st choice in the Hudson Valley.

This was my third time and
This was my third time and I still love it. Service very pleasant and food delcious. I was surprised that the revision in the pasta list was a little edgey with no popular favorites. The veal meatballs are still an outstanding appetizer. My lasagnette was very bland but with some salt the quality was very good. My husband thought the steak special was good not great.Nebbiola wine delicious.

Small is good
Good food, attentive service,etc. Small front room very cozy - no noise control in ceilings or walls - customers under control made the noise level moderate.

What no more antipasti???
We so enjoyed the antipasti that used to be on the menu - the $5 brusselsl sprouts, butternut squash and others. They were wonderful ways to start the meal and we hope that the chef will reinstate them. We missed them this last time.

Will have to try more dishes
Will have to try more dishes to offer a complete review. But dining experience very nice with excellent service and attention to detail. Look forward to another meal there.

We had a delicious dinner at Italian Kitchen. The beet salad was perfect and the "Baked Beans" dinner selection was a combination of white beans and vegetables, and a great choice. We had a chocolate dessert that was a chocolate tart, with nutella and a caramel sauce that was also very well done!

I have heard some really good things about this restaurant and wanted to bring my two nephews there for their graduation celebrations. When I saw the menu I was a bit disappointed as it emphasized seafood and I, nor my nephews, are seafood eaters. When I think Italian, I think pastas, eggplant, veal, etc. Not that there wasn't something we could choose from, it was just that our choices were extremely limited. What we did have was very, very good, it's just that I felt they could have had more of a variety of foods and not just seafood. After all, it's called "Italian Kitchen" not "Red Lobster".

Highly priced but Tasty
This restaurant is very small but the food is excellent. Parking is tricky in town. Main courses are small portions. Pricing for 2 people with one appetizer, two main dishes (one was one of the dinner sized pastas), and one desert,was in the $130.00 range. We had two beers and a glass of wine from the bar. Costly even for Westchester but probably worth it for a very special occasion.

The food is delicious. We
The food is delicious. We went with our children ages, 14 & 12 and they loved it too. We had beet salad, savory crepes, rigatoni with broccoli rabe - yum! My kids had steak and the other had the scallops, they would have licked the plate. The halibut was wonderful and we even went for dessert. Everything was perfect.

Third time dining here. Menu is limited but every is very fresh and flavorful. The meatball appetizer (something I would not normally order) is amazing, just as the waiter said it would be. Pastas are fresh, blueberry tart delicious. Can't wait to go back.

The appetizer was excellent.....different and tasty. However, the veal cutlet could use more flavor with interesting spices. It would be worth another visit given comments from friends.

2x's so far
This is our second visit to Italian Kitchen. We ate there with the same couple. All our dishes were delish. My husband and I had the veal . Our friend is a vegan and she had the bean dish , her husband had fish. We were all happy with our meal. Salads were tasty and inventive. My only complaint is the seating . They have such uncomfortable chairs. Maybe so you don't stay too long. We had an enjoyable evening and will be back

Nice little spot
Good food, ok atmosphere. Not much to this place, definitely not a "scene". Food was great! Not an overwhelming menu or wine list. Instantly felt comfortable here. Servers were very nice, just wish there were more of them! Definitely looked under staffed but well trained and attentive once they got to you. Desserts were delicious as well.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed our first visit to Italian Kitchen. The beet salad to start was delicious. Our pasta dishes were yummy and well worth the indulgence. Small place so reserve early. Tables fill quickly.

Outstanding flavourable food
I highly reccomend The Italian Kitchen from the outstanding delicious food, excellent wine selection and friendly and efficient staff. Always my favorite place to visit at weekends when I can.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
will come back
Absolutely delicious food, from appetizers (superb antipasti) to dessert--with the exception of the veal cutlet, which was only standard. Service was unrushed and topnotch. Prices a bit steep, but you won't mind at all.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The closest thing Puglia in Westchester. Wow food with the world's best polenta. The chef is creative without overreaching and the result is transcendent. Hate to share news about this great addition to the Westchester dining scene as seating is limited and there are so many hungry hoards out there. Mangia.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Second time at Italian Kitchen and this is a place I'll keep, confidently, as a place for a great meal with my family and friends that won't break the bank.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Definitely worth a visit
We brought a party of 6 to the Italian Kitchen and were seated in the beautiful back room. The staff was attentive and quite knowledgeable. One of our party was celiac, and our server was very careful to point out any problems for him on the menu. The food was wonderful and the wine list was small, but well chosen. The only issue we had was with the kitchen. The food took quite a long time to come to the table for each course, and the portion sizes seemed random. The items ordered as appetizers and mains seemed the same portion in different bowls, while some mains were quite small, others were much too large for one person to eat (& we are not small eaters) None of these issues should make you hesitate to visit, just new restaurant jitters!

Our meal was delicious -- lots of seasonal gems, good portions, and good flavor. I especially loved the crespelle!

We found the food to be more gourmet than your average Italian restaurant. The menu was creative and dishes were attractively presented and well prepared. All the dishes that we ordered were tasty although the scallops were a bit salty.Appetizers were wonderful as well as dessert

My husband and I live in Westchester and have been exploring restaurants and fine dining for years. Italian Kitchen is one of our new favorites. The food is creative and superb. We just had a squash blossom appetizer special that was outstanding and unusual. The staff are wonderful and attentive. The ambiance is friendly. The food is really outstanding.

Best food in Westchester!
We've had dinner with various friends and family at Italian Kitchen and everyone has been quite impressed. The food combinations are fascinating and delicious. A lobster salad in August had large chunks of lobster with a balance of veggies and a fine sauce. This week's tortellini was in a delicate sauce. Three of us really liked it. The fourth had a big, beautiful dish of pasta and fish. The wine list of Italian specialities held a few we enjoy. The service is very pleasant; the atmosphere relaxed; the decor woodsy. We sat near someone who had a weekly reservation for a long time. Not to be missed!

Excellent food and service. The hostess was a doll; waiter was very nice and has a wonderful demeanor. A bit on the expensive side, so would reserve for special occasions. Very happy we went.

Another great dinner
Food is exquisite every time I eat here. Obviously the chef knows what she/he is doing. Veal meatballs
are awesome as is the Pappardelle Bolognese
The Arugula salad was nicely dressed and the Crepe appetizer to die for.
The only problem was that they were out of Tiramisu which is also always great.

We were searching for a good spot in Ardsley and via Open Table found Italian kitchen. The food was delicious and the people very nice. The portions were just right and the food fresh. The mixed appetizers were yummy. We battled over the last brussel sprout! We will definitely be back. It was also very reasonably priced.
