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.

During these crazy times we felt very safe making reservations at Kenny’s. All staff wore masks, bar chairs were properly separated and tables spaced appropriately. We sat in patio area where it is brighter than inside. Sara, was excellent. So impressed that she learned our names, great suggestions for dinner choices and wine. We’ll be asking for her again. The food was delicious and the entire experience made my birthday celebration perfect.

Kenny's is a neighborhood gem in Addison. The food and service is always excellent and they have adapted well to the current restrictions. What always impresses us when we dine at Kenny's is the attitude of EVERYONE that works there. From the moment you walk in until you leave, ALL employees go out of their way to thank you and make you feel welcome. That makes the entire dining experience a pleasure. Great food, great service - 5 Star!

Kenny's food was fabulous. We had the lasagna, the chicken piccatta, and the veal marsala. Each dish was wonderful and their bread is great too. Service was perfect. We were in and out in an hour but not rushed at all. Highly recommend.

They did not have our reservation - hostess said their computer systems are “crappy” and they just don’t get reservations sometimes. They were able to seat us quickly still. However they sat us on the patio and it smelled like mildew out there so that was a little off putting.

Kenny’s is one of my favorite places! Seemed like it was an off day for them. Food was amazing and wait staff is always A+ no matter what

Normally I enjoy the entire Kenny experience but tried the Salmon for the first time tonight and I was disappointed with the preparation. The sauce was listed to have mushrooms and artichokes. It had a mushroom and the artichoke was missing. The salmon was way over cooked to the point of crunchy. I'll stick with pasta and hope for a return quality on our next visit.

Warning, Do Not expect to be seated at the reserved time on a Friday or Saturday. Too noisy, conversations nearly impossible. Too crowded, over booked.
Our server was awesome, food really good!

Great experience! Food, service & pricing were all good- the exceptional thing was the manager - “Leslie” going out of her way to greet us, coordinate our service, checking on us and thanking us as we were leaving- we had the shrimp, spaghetti & meatballs and 2 of us had the salmon over angel hair pasta- it’s the only Italian restaurant where I have had 5 star salmon! Their prices were very competitive, especially for the quality of food we received- We look forward to a return trip-

It's a yes and a no if I would recommend this restaurant. The food is really great and I love the vibe of this restaurant but for whatever reason it is downright impossible to eat here without a reservation for dinner. Then when you make a reservation, you have to wait 30minutes anyway to sit down which at that point whats the point of making a reservation? I know its not the hostess' fault (or i'm actually unsure how it works) but she was telling people with reservations they are behind 30-45 minutes. That honestly sucks. Also the service is very 50/50. The first time I dined here I had a fantastic server then the second time I came I had a really terrible waiter.

Alexa was a wonderful server.... very personable and cherry. She took care of everything....even brought us a free appetizer because we had to wait past our reservation time. We were also given a couple gift cards because of the wait time. Food was outstanding and the restaurant was not too noisy so we could talk easily. A group of 18 year olds came in to celebrate a birthday and we were asked if we wanted to move because of the noise....that is excellent customer service(the kids were not that loud). Overall great experience.

My family was here from Rhode Island which has federal hill in Providence known for great Italian food. They were extremely pleased with the food, service and especially enjoyed the iced “refresh” glass provided half way through our drinks to keep them cold. Thank you for making it a great night out!!
