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.

With some recently identified food sensitivities, our waiter worked with us to find the perfect combo! It hit the spot exactly! My date has never had a meatier lasagna! Food was flavorful, hot and cooked to perfection! Service was fun and well managed for how busy the restaurant was. In this era of huge demands on staff because of the influx of restaurant goers, the staff seemed well supported, prepared and delivered a memorable dining experience. Impressed! We got plenty of encouragement to go to another Kenny’s, but we will be back to the Italian kitchen for sure!

I love the food at Kenny's, it's amazing. I also love that you can split entrees to try 2 different ones. The service has been great each time we've been there as well. It's also the best cannoli's in town.
Highly recommend.

I liked the homey atmosphere. Service was great. Food was mixed bag. Spaghetti and meatballs was good, lasagne was average. Mozzarella aNd tomato dish was poor.
Mozzarella was in the fridge too long and had no flavor. I ordered a lemonade that tasted like Minute Maid brand (yuck). I would go back, but be very selective in what I order.

I didn't give it 5 stars because of the noise level which is a little challenging for a person who wears hearing aids. Otherwise, wonderful!

I was a bit disappointed. Dined here several times. Service was poor to say the least. One dish was good and the other was too salty. My family wasn’t very impressed either.

Server didn’t make much of an effort to be available nor was she very friendly. She barely smiled so my husband made a joke and she became offended. He even explained that it was just his attempt to make her smile. No response.

Not sure I want to return. Never had these issues at this establishment or any of the other Kenny restaurants.

What a treat Kenny’s is, an excellent dining experience , refreshing and oh so tasty.
I hadn’t been to Kenny’s since X-mas Eve 2019, a family/holiday tradition for years. I guess Kenny’s had fallen of my radar with Covid being front and center for the last year and a half. I’m so happy to have rediscovered Kenny’s Italian Kitchen. The evenings dining experience was perfect from start to finish. The food was amazing (as were the leftovers the next day), tasted even better than I remembered. I ordered gluten free bread, GF mozzarella sticks and GF Chicken Parmigiana , all was heavenly. The best Italian (and GF) food in Dallas. I won’t be a stranger to this place again, next visit will be lunch soon, yummy. I’m looking forward to it.

I brought my son and his girlfriend here for their first time. The food was excellent but service was a tad slow and there seemed to be a lack of attention to detail with our server that was notable compared to the tables next to ours and the other servers. That as disappointing for their first experience here.

My husband loves the veal parmesan and he was very happy. I wanted my food prepared a certain way (no oil or butter, stuff on the side, etc) and they accommodated very nicely. Kids had spaghetti and meatballs, and the salmon dish. Everyone enjoyed their food. Entrees were huge portions as usual, so we got nice leftovers so I don't have to make dinner the next day :)
