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 brought my mother and grandmother here (at grandma's request). The service is always friendly and accommodating-- and we were all very happy with our choices! The dinner special-- cannelloni-- was delicious and presented beautifully.

The entire experience was great. It was busy but we were at our table quickly. All 4 of us took advantage of the kitchen being willing to serve one plate with half of 2 entrees. So we sampled 6 different entrees (the boys each had spaghetti + something else). All was delicious. Excellent service.

Extensive, creative menu - familiar but with a flair. All our dishes were good including the cannelloni special. Some items a bit pricey but huge portions. They will do half and half plates to let you try more than one dish. Excellent tiramisu and coffee. Cozy, friendly atmosphere. Hard to get to in traffic but worth it!

Unfortunately we were in the patio with two other very large groups. Made it hard to catch up with our friends due to the volume of the other two groups. Otherwise, it was very good

Food was great! I've been to Kenny's a few times. This time the service was not the greatest. The waiter kept forgetting things. We had to ask a second time for a drink. And we ordered dessert but he never brought it; we had to ask again. Not horrible but not the greatest service for an almost $200 bill-we were clearly spending money.

For lunch I ordered the Chicken Scaloppini, it was delicious, highly recommend. Plus they bring you hot fresh bread, so yummy to dip in olive oil. Our waitress, Lisa was fantastic, very attentive, helpful and just nice. What I love about this place 3rd time there, food is consistently delicious, service is the best I've had at a restaurant in a long time - staff is GREAT!

Felt like we walked into a New York movie scene! The ambiance, decor, and size made it feel like you were having an evening in Little Italy, and if we had seen The Godfather sitting in the corner with the family, we would not have been surprised. From the sidewalk we were greeted by a hostess seeing other customers off and felt truly welcomed. Once inside, again, the same fantastic service. Our waitress, Tracy, was truly one of the absolute best we have ever had! Everything was really and truly above almost every other customer service standard that we experience... and we eat out almost every single day. The house bread was delectable, portions very good, and the service made everything just splendid! Tracy let us know that we could order split meals to try different things, so I ordered half lasagna with half chicken piccata. Holy mackerel! It was delicious! My date ordered spaghetti with Midnight Meatballs and absolutely loved it too. I do believe we have definitely found a wonderful new spot! Again, I just cannot say enough about the hospitable and generous customer service provided by Tracy and all of the staff we encountered. They truly are so much higher than even some of the best standards. Definitely 5 star service in every way!

Excellent Italian favorites tailored for our table's picky needs (one gluten sensitive; one vegetarian). Outstanding friendly (but not intrusive) service. This has the feeling of a neighborhood gem with the quality of big name restaurants. Our favorite in Addison (and that's saying something because Addison has lots of terrific dining options).

This place was fantastic! The customer service is outstanding: they didn’t have milk for our one year old but offered to leave the restaurant to go get us some! So willing to go the extra mile. We loved it! The food was amazing, and they have very healthy portions! We will definitely be back!

Very special place. The manager and head chief, Joey, provided special attention to our table. Which was a birthday dinner for my wife. Joey was making sure all details were taken care of. Jason, our waiter, paid attention to all the details. He was great. Sure to go back soon.

Your basic italian food. Basic. Pasta (spaghetti) overcooked and limp. The bread was very good. Comfortable, casual atmosphere, and the staff is very hospitable, nice, attentive, and speedy.

Good Italian food at a good price. It gets really busy during the evenings. Felt like the waitress was trying to kick us out as fast as she could to get the table ready for the next guests. Reservations are necessary.

Our Opentable reservation was honored immediately on arrival. Our waiter and other table support staff were very attentive and nice. A number of the dishes were large enough for "two" to share. Our waiter did a good job of briefing us on 'portion sizes' so that we didn't 'over order'.

A very pleasant evening with both good food and service.

This is my new favorite place to bring friends. It got a bit loud as the room filled up, but generally a great place to meet friends for dinner after work. The waiter couldn’t have been nicer. He was respectful very personable. We both had chicken piccata. They had no problem substituting veggies for pasta and happy hour wine selection was delicious. So many temptations, but I was good tonight. They even have gluten free options. I’ll be back.

We love coming to eat here. The food has always been amazing. This time I had the chef’s special,..bow tie pasta with a spicy Parmesan sauce with chicken and shrimp. It sounded delicious but the sauce so so incredibly spicy neither myself or my fiancé could eat it and it really messed up my stomach afterwards. We will still be back but it may be a while.

We went here secondary to reviews per googling best Italian restaurants in Dallas. The food was okay, in comparison to some Italian foods I've tasted, didn't have the authenticity I was searching for. Made reservations to celebrate wives birthday, even after telling waiter, they never addressed it, except we almost left her 10.00 slice of dessert we purchased on table, and he brought it to us on our way out. This wasn't the experience I wanted for wives birthday.

One of my biggest complaints when dining out is the temperature of the food. This is something you don't have to worry about at Kenny's, the food was piping hot!! The food was great, yet what made the entire evening was the service. Bekha is one of the best waitresses in Dallas and made our 28th wedding anniversary very memorable. She was very personable and kept checking on us throughout the dinner. We have been to all Kenny's restaurants except for the Smoke House, and when we told Bekha that she arrived with a $10 gift card so we could try it out. Will defiantly be back and always, always request Bekha!!!!!!

Family group of 7. Thought mixed drinks were a little pricy, but they were very good. Food was excellent. Loved that you we could order two half entrees. Our waitress was very helpful and friendly.
