Today was our first visit to celebrate Father’s Day and it was great! Friendly service, generous portions and the food was delicious. We had the calamari which was excellent, the cheese sticks, and my husband got the carbonara, I got the mushroom ravioli. We got pizza and chicken tenders for the kids. The manager stopped by the table and was very personable! Very enjoyable dining experience in a casual, laid back atmosphere and we will definitely be back!
The food was great and the service was excellent
Thank you Jessica! We are thrilled to hear this!
Our dining experience was awesome! Our server was great and made excellent recommendations. The only suggestion that I would have is to seat diners in tables further apart when it is not busy and fill in to closer tables as necessary.
Thank you so much for your kind words & feedback! We hope to see you again very soon!
Always good the veal is really good. You can always count on Kenney's

We love Kenny’s! We drive an hour to visit a few times a month because we love the fantastic food, service, and atmosphere. Highly recommend!
Thank you so much Brittany! We really appreciate your kind words & continued support!
My wife and I came back again to Kennys and they never dissappoint! In fact, out of the many times we have been there, this meal may have been the best! We'll keep coming back. Long drive but worth it!!
Thank you so much! We really appreciate your kind words & continued support!
Food and service was fantastic. Cedric (our waiter) was great!

Thank you so much Lisa!
I arrived and they told me they could not find my reservation.
Cocktails and dinner were excellent. One of my favorite Italian dinners in greater Dallas. I dine @ Kenny's several times every month with family and friends
Thank you Earl! We really appreciate your kind words & continued support!
Always a favorite when my family comes to visit. Great options for my mom who has celiac disease. Service is always excellent and food is delicious!
Thank you so much!
My husband and I both got sick after dining there and we had different entrees
Favorite Italian restaurant by far. First time ever had issue with service. Our waiter Paul was non existent. Had to flag down other server who graciously helped us. Such an isolated occurrence here but had just bragged about what wonderful service they had and this happened lol. Definitely will be back but a different waiter.
We enjoyed a lovely dinner!! The Italian bread was amazing!! It was freshly baked right out of the oven since it melted in your mouth. The ambience was lively and it was so great to be back at Kenny’s Italian Kitchen!!
Thank you so much for your kind words & feedback!
We enjoyed our lunch. Food was yummy....and the waiter was outstanding. So upbeat and
very patient with our food order that we totally modified.
Thank you so much Susan! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your lunch!
We always enjoy Kenny’s. Nice quiet place, good wine list, excellent calamari and veal piccata and great service from Brandon. We will be back soon!
Thank you so much for your recommendation Bill! We will be sure to give Brandon the recognition that he deserves!
Great service abs excellent menu options
Thank you so much!
It doesn't matter which Kenny's restaurant you go to, you're going to get great food. Kenny has a gift as a chef and I'm thankful he's shared it with the people of DFW. I ordered the lasagna at Kenny's Italian Kitchen and it was the best I've ever had. Also, the portion size was great. I give all Kenny's a 5 out of 5 stars!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so grateful for your support & hope to see you again very soon!
Kenny's is a great spot! The food is wonderful and the staff is super friendly and responsive.
Thank you so much Brandon!
Always good food with GREAT service
Thank you so much GiGi!
Our server was so awesome and very helpful. We brought our friends for the first time and they loved it as much as we do! Fantastic food and great atmosphere! Not to mention my wife has a Gluten intolerance and this the only place she can have quality Italian food. We will be back every time we’re in the area!
Thank you so much for this feedback! We are thrilled to hear it!
The food was wonderful !! I highly recommend to anyone looking for good food and a casual atmosphere.
Thank you so much Peter!
Absolutely fantastic food & service.
I would highly recommend.
Thank you so much for your kind feedback, we truly appreciate it. Hope to see you again soon!
I was really impressed with the food and the ambiance of Kenny’s Italian Kitchen. My husband does t really like Italian but I love it. However, he’s now a fan of Kenny’s Italian Kitchen! He really enjoyed the veal Parmesan Parmigiana. The portions were nice and filling. Our waiter was really nice and helpful with it being our first time there. We will definitely be back! :-)
Thank you so much for this feedback Erica! We are so glad that you & your husband enjoy our restaurant! We hope to see you again soon!
Would normally give Kenny's 5 across the board, but this experience was a little less favorable. First of all, being not quite post pandemic, the table were way too close together. I understand now that Texas is 100% open, restaurants are making up for lost time, but it was too close for comfort. Secondly, not sure what was going on with the AC, but it was incredibly hot in there with no cool air flowing for the number of people in the restaurant. Our waiter was very nice and polite, but we had to ask him for bread 3 times and finally flagged someone else down to get it. Then we asked for butter, to go with the bread, and that took forever to get. Our water glasses were never refilled. I ordered the house salad and most of the lettuce was the white and yellow spiny part of the romaine. Very disappointing. We used to Kenny's being a stellar experience. Hope it returns to that level of excellence.
Fantastic anniversary dinner! Great service, great food, great atmosphere. We will be back for more Wonderful Italian cuisine. Thank you!
Thank you so much Chase! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We normally LOVE Kenny’s but this time it was a bizarre and not so fun experience. Shout out to our server, Gabriel, and the hostesses as they were all fantastic!! But thats where it stops. The bartenders and patrons saving barstools for people after being there for hours on end and very intoxicated, the food being overcooked and extremely over sauced, and just the whole vibe being really strange. I understand what it’s like to be a regular, but you can’t hoard and save barstools on a Mother’s Day Sunday when the bar is full and everyone’s trying to find seats. And the fact the restaurant and bartenders let this happen really left a bad taste in our mouth! We’ll of course give them another try as they’re an institution in Irving, but yeah, not cool!
Kenny’s continues to be amazing even after the pandemic. The food is still amazing—chicken parm and chicken Marsala—-the best. The service has remained excellent as well
Thank you so much for your kind words! We really appreciate your kindness & support!
Always a great spot to go. Get service, outstanding food! Love it every time
Thank you so much!
Love the food and service is always great!
Thank you so much Samantha! We really appreciate your feedback & support!
Food is great as always
Thank you so much Robin!
We had a reservation for an anniversary dinner and the patrons were staying longer than Kenny’s had planned and our reservations tine was moved back. Even though it was no fault of the restaurant but they bent over backwards to make our experience was memorable. The manager Amanda Hughes went above and beyond and made Kenny’s a cut above most busy restaurants...the food was delicious and the staff was on top of everything. An Awesome Experience
Thank you so much for celebrating your anniversary with us! We really appreciate your patience, kind words & feedback. We will be sure to give Amanda the recognition that she deserves and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Silas ( not sure if that's how his name is spelled ) was amazing! Eight Years in the Dessert was a little off but we didn't want to complain. Also, the thumping from Sherlock's was over the top. All you could hear was thump thump thump. But we will definitely be back! Love Kenny's 💘
Hi Becky! We really appreciate the feedback & will be sure to give Silas the recognition that he deserves! We are sorry to hear about your wine and the noise level from the restaurant next door. But we truly appreciate your kind words & support! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great place with great food. I will definitely be back.
Thank you so much John!
Kenny's ALWAYS delivers! We have now eaten at all Kenny's Restaurants and will keep coming ask. The Appetizers are fabulous - the Burrata Mozzarella is outstanding and the Happy Drinks are amazing - we both had the House Cab and a Martini...so good! We always have a hard time choosing our main course, but Kenny's allows you to split the entrees so we could try both top choices each - the Mushroom Ravioli with Smoked Gouda sauce was fantastic! The Service was outstanding and the Manager came by to check on us at the perfect time. HIGHLY recommend! Thanks Kenny's for a fabulous Birthday Dinner
We had issues with poor service from the start. We ordered an appetizer of meatballs. After 25 minutes we asked our waiter where they were. He said, "they should have been out by now. I'll check." Then he returned with the meatballs as well as our entrees. We like our appetizers first - that's the point of appetizers. He said he would get them taken off our bill (he did). My wife ordered the filet. The waiter did not provide a steak knife and was gone before we noticed. We could not get his attention so had to walk across the dining room to find a knife. Perhaps these are two small issues, but it made dining at Kenny's Italian a less than perfect experience.
