Italian
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.

Kenny's Italian Kitchen is our favorite place in Addison. It's the perfect spot for a date night, late night, or celebration. I don't know what I love more though- the service, the ambience, or the Bruschetta (probably the Bruschetta, it's beyond delicious.) This place is wonderful all around.

I was a bit put off in the beginning as I had made a reservation for my husband's birthday and we had guests with us. They sat us at a table that literally is maybe 6 steps from the bathrooms and a route for all of the waitstaff to get to and from the kitchen. After I approached the hostess to say this would not do, she quickly changed us to a central table and all was good. As per usual, the food was delicious and the service was also amazing.

We had 5:30 reservations but were not seated until closer to 6:00. When we were finally seated, we were sat on the patio by a large party of 20+ people loudly celebrating a birthday. We could not hear our own conversation until their food was served and they stopped talking to eat. The food was good and our waitresses did their best to take care of us; although, they were also taking care of the large party. Since we were seated so late, the manager did offer us free appetizers but we were in a rush to get to a movie.

As always, the food was delicious. One thing that could be improved, though, is the arrangement of the seating. There are so many chairs & tables packed together on the floor that we have never eaten there that one of us didn't get bumped by either another patron or a waiter. One night my husband's chair was bumped three separate times. Also, the back of my husband's chair came apart while he was sitting in it, and rather than get him a different chair, our waiter just popped the slat back into its joint and said he would have it looked it later. Not great customer service... That was the exception, though - we usually have very good service.

VERY crowded, as usual. Veal Marsala was just mediocre, and the pasta and salad were nothing special. Is this 5-star restaurant slipping?

Extremely happy with everything! This is family Italian dining. Exactly what it presents itself to be. From the pictures to the tablecloths, the decor sets the expectation. Our service was fantastic and the flavors were spot on. If you like rich sauces, big flavors, and perfect textures...this is your go to!!!

Had the chicken scallopini and the chicken gnocchi as a split dish. Both were absolutely delicious. I like the way Kenny's lets you try two different entres on one serving. Great way to feature new dishes to try. Loved the tiramisu dessert to top off the meal. Will definitely return for dinner soon.

We dine here once a year to celebrate our anniversary and it continues to get better every year. The food is always superb, the staff is warm and friendly, and the ambiance is perfect for a dinner for 2. This year was our 4th year coming to Kenny's and they made it very special for us, our server Chelsea was so very attentive and surprised us with a dessert with a heart that she made with chocolate and raspberry sauces on the plate!

This restaurant does a super job of accommodating one of our diners, who is a celiac. They make great GF bread and many of their dishes GF. Our remaining diners were thrilled with their meals too. This is a standout Italian restaurant in the Dallas area.

This was our 2nd visit to Kenny’s Italian. The first visit was not great and when I let management know, they ask us to return and give them a 2nd chance. We did that and were extremely happy to find that this visit was up our expectation for a Kenny’s restaurant. Our server was great, our food was served promptly and was excellent. Our server overheard that it was our son’s b-day and brought him a free dessert. The chef also dropped by and gave birthday wishes and a gift card for him to return. We will definitely return to this location now and are so glad we gave them a 2nd chance. Our first experience was clearly an anomaly and I am exptremely impressed with how the restaurant responded.
