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.

    I love ALL of the Kenny's Restaurants! Kenny's Italian is so good and you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu! I was at Kenny's Burgers in Frisco on Friday with my son, ate at Kenny's Italian last night to celebrate the holidays with friends and plans to eat at Kenny's Woodfired Grill on Friday for lunch with a friend to celebrate the holidays. Thank you for giving me many wonderful choices to go eat and celebrate with friends and family and all of Kenny's Restaurants are always friendly, good value and consistent on quality!

    I have been a patron of the Kenny’s franchise for the past 12+ years and tonight my service at the Italian Kitchen was the worst I have yet to receive in my 43 years on this earth. From the moment we sat down we were ignored. It took 10 plus minutes for our server to say hello. At witch point I was clear he was unprepared to assist us. We asked about dairy in the meatballs and were met with a let me check. When he finally came back to check our order we asked again. He then quickly asked a fellow server if the meatballs contained dairy and they knew immediately that they did so we declined ordering them. We carried on with our order. One of our friends has a gluten allergy and they ordered accordingly. Since the server wasn’t sure about the meatballs we had concerns about the order so we asked for a Manager and Logan came over. He went back to address the issues with the server in the window and was observed laughing about our table. At this time we decided that out dinner at the Italian kitchen was over. I requested our check from Logan. He was dismissive of our concerns. I requested the check for our drinks. He obliged for which I tipped 10%. I didn’t want to cost our waiter money of tip share. I tipped 20+ percent on my drinks at the bar which I tipped 20%+. I have spent thousands of dollars here and referred hundreds of my contacts over the years. Tonight’s behavior was unacceptable and I would like a response.

    Food overall was ok but not great. The pork was very dry and tasted old. Very hard for me to believe that this was the same place as the reviews stated. First time of complaining on a restaurant in years but really think the owners need to know.

    The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was great. Our server Michael was fantastic in every way. He never made us feel rushed and making sure we enjoyed ourselves. We ended up staying for 3 hours or more and didn’t even realize we’d been there so long? It was a fun night with very close friends made even better by every aspect of Ken’s Italian restaurant…an exceptional place!!

    Visited on a Thursday evening with 3 other friends. The service and food was spectacular. The very best Veal Parmigiana I have had in my life, and large enough to share! My friends ordered the Lasagna, Fettuccine Carbonara and the Italian Kitchen Salad! Everything was perfect and five stars. I highly recommend this place for old school Italian food!

    We love Kenny’s Woodfire so we were excited to try Kenny’s Italian. We had trouble from the get go. Drinks arrived after appetizer. Appetizer was cold. Meal was decent but not spectacular. Waiter was nice and offered gluten free bread but it arrived when we were almost finished with our meal. Hoping it’s just a fluke since others seem to love it..

    My wife has celiacs and she has been craving delicious Italian food where she doesn’t feel singled out due to her gluten intolerance. Last night she was greater with bread that she loved, followed by a Cesar salad with gluten free croutons. Her meal was a gluten free chicken parm. And it tasted so good she was astonished. Finally, as we were leaving she saw the mozzarella sticks and we asked “ do y’all make those gluten free” the answer was “ Yes!!!!” She was so excited to ordered some to go. I am incredibly greatful to the owner, chefs and staff for giving my wife such an awesome meal! My meal was great as well (gluten filled). For the rest of our night my wife did not have even the slightest headache !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Which meant to cross contamination! Thank you!!!!!!! From our family to yours!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!

    Food was awesome however atmosphere was terrible - no fault of Kenny's. We were on the patio and workmen were putting large sheets of plywood over the windows. Loudly with power tools. Evidently they are going to construct an outdoor venue next door and were putting up the plywood to protect the windows of Kenny's. I'm just saying they could have done it at another time rather than peak dining time - 7:00pm. Kenny's apologized and offered gift cards which we didn't expect.

    Delicious food! Service was not what it was the first time we went. Waiter told us they didn’t have two items and we knew they did from previous visit. He made our daughter uncomfortable commenting on how little she’d eaten. Then he took our dessert from us before we were finished with it! Will still go back because food is excellent!

    If I lived closer, I would be a regular at Kenny's. Met an old friend who was in town for business for a casual dinner. We started with a refreshing martini ( Ruby Slipper for me and Raspberry Lemonade for my friend) and then enjoyed the mushroom ravioli (1/2 portion), Joey's Bolognese (1/2 portion) and the East Coast Linguini. Everything was delicious but the stand out, for me, was the mushroom ravioli. Our server, Trinity, was first class. Professional, knowledgable, and beyond pleasant. She brought us each a complimentary cannoli for dessert since it was our first time to dine at Kenny's. Overall experience was A+.
