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.

MUCH better than the last visit! Italian chopped salad was fantastic as was the bow tie bolognaise and mushroom ravioli. Christy the server was amazing. One fault only…the bread was underdone.

We went for a birthday, but Kenny’s is great for any celebration/dinner/HH! No joke when I say this is the BEST bang for your buck. The best Italian food and best drinks. We went to Perry’s steakhouse (5 star restaurant) and I’m telling you, Kenny’s beats Perry’s by a mile. Seriously, so yummy. Everything is so homemade - you won’t regret it! Ps - get the garlic cheese bread and gin and Georgia martini!

We love all the Kenny’s restaurants, but Kenny’s Italian Is our favorite. We love to do lunch “dates” here, it’s always fantastic food and service is the best! Brandon is really enthusiastic about all the food and wine, and made some really great recommendations! We had the salmon, shrimp scampi, chicken scallopini, and veal piccata, since they let you split your entree to try two things! All are so delicious, and the atmosphere is fun and casual. We highly recommend all the Kenny’s restaurants!

Last night did not reflect our usual excellent experience at Kenny's. We were early for our reservation, so we waited in the bar. We got forgotten by the hostess,, even with my occasionally checking in, and didn't get seated until a half hour after our reservation time and we were placed outside on the enclosed patio with a large and very noisy group. Our midnight meatball appetizer and salads were quite good. The Veal Parmesan was badly overcooked - it was dry and tough. We spoke with the manager and she comped our entire meal and gave us gift cards to use at a later time. We will probably try this again but it was a very disappointing way to spend our 20th Anniversary.

Very disappointing experience. We were seated in the small back room. Immediately a groups of 15 were seated close to us. Not only were they very loud, they got all the service. I understand the waitstaff was overwhelmed, but why couldn’t we have been in the main dining room where we would have certainly had better service? My boulagnaise was greasy. Our waiter did comp our appetizer since we waited so long. We had to flag him down to order a second drink.
This has been one of our favorite Italian restaurants. No more.
