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

  • "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."

  • "We have been here several times and were bringing my brother and his wife this time. We were a little nervous wondering if they would enjoy it as much as we do. So happy to say they did! We always start with the mussels in red sauce. Delicious! The gnocchi were light and the sauce was perfect. My brother had the pork special and said it was fall off the bone tender just as our waitress described. We'll be back!"

  • "I would recommend KC without hesitation. Food is delicious, prices are reasonable - even their specials, they have great variety. I have never gotten anything that I did not enjoy. All meals are very flavorful. Desserts are out of this world. Best tiramisu ever, great pizzelles and gelatos are yummy, just to mention a few! Each entre is enough for 2 dinners and a lunch. Love the fact that it is a BYOB. Their service is phenomenal - even those not waiting on you stop by and ask how you are, good to see you etc. The décor is unique. A definite winner and go to place."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "From appetizers to desserts the food and service were excellent. Try the sausage meatball appetizer for great and unusual food. Entrees were presented well and were a dining delight. Finish with an espresso and a gelato sampler."

Aubrey was a better than excellent server, the décor fun and cozy and the dishes and dessert were a 10! We'll tell our friends and will come back time and time again. Thanks for a great evening! Rob and Beth"

  • "Been to the Kitchen many times. Food is always, always, always excellent. The Sunday Gravy is a house specialty and well worth the experience. Had the linguini in white clam sauce for the first time there this week. Hands down, the best I've ever had. Can't wait to go back for an encore performance. And the fried calamari is a must. There is no restaurant anywhere that prepares calamari like Angelo. It is a light, batter-dipped, very tender dish that you just can't get enough of. And to cap off an always delicious dining experience, Angelo, the owner, always comes to your table to personally welcome you. Unquestionably, one of the best restaurants in south Jersey."

  • "We went for Chicken Parm night and everything was so delicious. We enjoyed the bread, the salad, the pasta and the chicken. All three of us finished the large portions. It was that good. Cannot wait to go back."

    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "I had been here once in the old location and was not impressed. After it moved, I heard raves from friends so decided to go back. It was a great dinner, waiter was attentive and food was exactly how I ordered it (well done chicken piccata with extra sauce). We went back, bringing some family members. This time got a stuffy, inattentive waiter who did not get our special foods right (dressing on the side for salad, veggies instead of pasta for side dish, chicken well done). Food was good, desserts very good (pizzelles are very anisette-y tasting and cannoli filling was very good-gelato was also very good). But the 2nd visit wasn't as good as the first. Our bill, with tip, was $95.00 per couple, which I thought was high for a BYOB."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Pasta sides and complimentary bread were average; however, the main dishes (veal saltimbocca & chicken marsala) were delicious. The stuffed fig appetizer special was unbelievably good. It is a must try. If you have a sweet tooth and have room for dessert, the brookie served with their homemade gelato is a perfect end to the meal. Service throughout the entire meal was incredible. The server was very personable, attentive, and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "Have enjoyed a variety of wonderful dishes here and a "must have" is the sausage meatball and broccoli rabe app, it's delicious every time!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The place to go when you're in the mood for authentic Italian--especially pasta. Dishes are mainly traditional favorites but stepped up a notch along with specials that keep things interesting."

  • "Had the Fig appetizer special and it was scrumptious. The figs were crammed with marsala laced marscapone cheese and prosciutto and they were amazing. Had the Bolognese for my entree and it was some of the best bolognese that I have ever had. My husband had the Sunday gravy and said the brasciollo was outstanding. Highly recommend."
