A word from The Kitchen Consigliere
Come enjoy old Italian-style dishes, known today as Italian comfort food, at The Kitchen Consigliere as executive chef Angelo Lutz preserves the heritage of real, authentic homestyle cooking. His spot is an informal BYOB Italian eatery with an emphasis on the peasant dishes found in traditional homestyle Italian cooking. Influenced by the dishes he ate as a youngster, Angelo's cooking style stems from teaching and recipes taught by his mother and grandmother. The atmosphere is informal and the food and menus change often, allowing The Kitchen Consigliere to be a cozy, quaint and not over-the-top eatery for the entire family. And good food isn't the only reason to eat at the café. The real adventure is meeting with the real kitchen consigliere; you will come for the food but stick around for the conversation.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • " Tuesday Wednesday or Thursday they have specials that can't be beat for the price and the quality of the food! I look forward to my e-mails each week to see what they will have as a special. The 8oz filet dinner last night was fantastic! The mushroom Marsala gravy was delicious!"

  • "Filet Mignon special was delicious and reasonably priced. Only one complaint - a nice Ital Restaurant such as Kitchen Consigliere should NOT be serving COLD wrapped butter. Step it up with a small dish of whipped garlic butter for your awesome bread."

  • "Our return to this upbeat place was as rewarding as the past ones. Delicious veal, tasty eggplant parm and an appetizer that could have been the meal-figs, gorgonzola, crisp greens topped with just enough balsamic reduction!! And the regular coupons really help. Eagerly looking forward to the next adventure! Please do not use my name if you quote me."

  • "We had the most wonderful dinner at Kitchen Consigliere! Everything was absolutely delicious and it's a BYOB, which we love. The food is cooked and served beautifully and the portions are huge so you get to take some home for lunch the next day. The service was very, very good, from the hostess who seated us to the gentleman who filled our water and took our dishes away to our server who told us all the specials and took our order. We had the fig appetizer and the sausage meatballs, which were both amazing followed by the Clams with Linguine (white) and the NY Strip Steak. Yum! For desert we had the Brookie (a cookie baked inside a brownie) which was so good we wanted to lick the plate! We can't wait to go back!"

  • "The food was wonderful; the service outstanding. Our waiter Lon took excellent care of us. It was the first time in my life that a waiter asked if anyone had any food allergies. I do & dining out can be tough sometimes. That really impressed me. It was a great atmosphere for our girls' night out."

  • "Second time at Kitchen Consigliere and it was delicious. Our server was the best I have ever had. He knew everything about the menu, details about the specials and was knowledgeable enough about food to be able to suggest substitutions. He was attentive to our needs but not over bearing. The chef/owner came out to make sure we were happy with our meal and service. We have the fig salad and the artichoke appetizer and both tasted fresh and delicious. For dinner we had the specials the Spare Rib gravy and the Chicken Florentine which were also delicious. Kitchen Consigliere has moved up the ladder to one of our favorite spots. I would highly recommend it to anyone."

  • "Your food is fantastic! The prices are a little high...not for the quality or quantity...but for the everyday pocketbook!! Your crew are friendly and very pleasant and helpful! We try to eat there at least once a month. Your weekly specials that you send in emails are very good deals and helpful!"

  • "I have been to The Kitchen Consigliere several times and I do love it. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. The last visit to the Kitchen Consigliere, our waiter Antonio (Tony) was the best. He was very friendly, very accommodating and very on the ball. And made the dinner that much better."

  • "I first visited this restaurant at its former location to try it out, mostly because my late father had known the owner for many years. I was curious. However, after trying it just once, I was hooked! The new location is even more inviting, due to the ambience that awaits as you enter, but the food remains incredible! From the phenomenal gravy, to the out of this world, home-made desserts, everyone should try the Kitchen Consigliere. You don't know what you're missing! It's truly authentic Italian at its best. The owner, Angelo, makes it a point to visit every table, nightly, to give a smile or a hello and make sure that his customers are happy. Make it a point to visit this Collingswood gem. You'll be glad you did!"

  • "We were excited to try this restaurant but it would be hard to ever return with such wonderful Italian restaurants such as That's Amore so close. I ordered the grilled romaine salad topped with shrimp and scallops and was disappointed to find that the shrimp and scallops were the size of peas....think the kind that comes out of a can or you would get in a seafood soup from wawa. Also the salad was supposed to come with a caesar dressing but it was drenched in what seemed like a white wine sauce they use on one of their pasta dishes. My husband got the veal parm. He liked it, but felt like it was nothing special- The sauce did not seem fresh or homemade. It's a shame because it is very rare for me to not enjoy a meal out & the place is cute."

  • "Everything was incredible. Food was amazing and the service was top notch. I would highly recommend this place. We visit at lease twice a month. I highly recommend the rice ball and fig salad. The gnocchi's were out of this world. If you like clams and spaghetti you have to order it from here. The best we've had."

  • "Third visit in as many months and it just gets better and better each time. Celebrated my brother's birthday on this outing and ordered a birthday cake which was made by the general manager, Patsy. Cannoli Choc Chip cake was AMAZING! Our waiter, Harry, couldn't be more attentive and, as always, Angelo stopped by to check in that everyone was happy. I just love this restaurant!"

  • "After arriving 20 min early for 8:00 reservation, we were told our table was not ready, another party of 4, which we were 4 also showed up 2 mins after us. The other party was seated before us at 8:10 at a nicer table, we were seated at 8:15 at a much less desirable table, seems open table has no clout, the waiter forgot to put my dinner order in so 3 people got their meals and not me until 15 mins after everyone else . They gave me a free cannoli for the mistake. Nothing said about waiting for the table after our reservation time."

  • "Decided to have dinner with my son while his future wife attended her bachelorette party. This restaurant had been strongly recommended by some friends. We enjoyed our appetizer of calamari. After that our salads arrived, then our entrees. My son had the veal saltimbocca, and I had the sausage bolognaise. both of our dinners were spectacular. For dessert I had the cannoli. WOW!!! Can't wait to take my wife!!!"

  • "Let alone the story behind the restaurant, overall experience was amazing. Our server Harry was the best server I have had in years. The food no matter what we ordered, table of four mind you, was outstanding. Beyond the company the food and the size of the triple layer chocolate cake were most impressive. I would highly recommend this is a dining experience for everyone"

  • "I love Kitchen Connsigliere! This was my first time to their new location. Neil (I think was his name) was a great server. We were celebrating my cousins birthday and she is pregnant. He made her a virgin sangria to make her feel icluded with our wine drinking. The food is amazing and you will leave feeling full...too full...and lots of left overs. I was alittle disappointed that they took the chicken alfredo off the menu but it wont stop me from coming back!"

  • "4 OF US DINED THERE ON SUNDAY EVENING. OUR TABLE WAS READY AND WAITING AS PER OUR RESERVATION. EVERYONE HAD A DIFFERENT DISH AND EACH DISH WAS TERRIFIC! GNOCCHI MADE WITH RICOTTA WERE INCREDIBLE AND NOT EASY TO FIND IN SOUTH JERSEY. DESSERT WAS ALSO FANTASTIC! 2 PIZZELLES FILLED WITH CANOLLI FILLING AND FRESH BERRIES!! A MUST TRY FOR EVERYONE WHO APPRECIATES GOOD FOOD PREPARED FRESH. A LITTLE PRICEY BUT WORTH THE EXTRA MONEY. WE WILL DEFINITELY GO THERE AGAIN AND AGAIN."
