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.

We went on for a special occasion, server never asked what we are celebrating, server Daniel didn’t listen to what our drink order was. Server Daniel got my sale wrong (when I asked for. I onions or cheese) salad came out with onions. Ordered dirty martini’s and came back with clear martini. Asked for olive juice on the side and was given an awkward look.

The service was very good and the waiter was able to make recommendations on what to try. The bread and oil and vinegar was amazing! I was hoping the food would be better, but it was lacking flavor. I am used to going to Kenny's wood fire grill and was thinking the food would be top notch like their sister restaurant, but it was just ok. The prices were decent and the ambience is great for either date night or dinner with friends.

Jessica was an amazing Server. She was on point at every step of the meal. Good food without a great Server is only a mediocre experience. This was top notch with both great food and service. We were there a week back and had the same experience with Brittney. In this day and age of good help is hard to find, Kenny's found them. They both exceeded our expectations.

This was my first time at Kenny's Italian. I liked it; however, I would prefer a more varied menu with more cocktail choices, salads and soups. The red sauce was too spicy for me.

Food was delicious! Grey goose on tap chilled to 28 degrees with hand stuffed blue cheese olives make the best martinis. Outstanding service by Katrina and she also recommended the perfect bottle of wine. Shared tirimisu and peanut butter pie were the perfect end to a perfect night.

Great place to have lunch or dinner. Be sure and made reservations as they are indeed a busy place. Waiters are very nice and on top of things. Meal was very good and it is about right for the price. I would advise everyone to try it at lease once. I have been several times. Also happy with the service and food.

Gotta love this neighborhood gem! Nestled away in Village on the Parkway, Kenny's serves up some of the best Italian food anywhere west of the Old Country! Wife had veal piccata, a dish hard to find even in upscale restaurants, and theirs is THE best. I had calamari - fried to perfection - and we shared a Caesar salad that lacked imagination (think parmesan crisps instead of soggy bread squares) but the rest of our meal was absolutely wonderful. We will be back - time and again - to our favorite little place.

Classic Italian home cooking vibe. It's always crowded, so must use Open Table to get a table. Food high-calorie b/c of the sauces, but oh so good. Good wine and drink selection.

My 2nd time at Kenny's and a treat as usual! Our wait staff was always on point, the recommendations were great and the food is some of the best traditional Italian I have ever had. Not the top in terms of value for money, and the tables were a little too close for post-COVID comfort, but it was an amazing dinner nonetheless. Highly recommend the midnight meatballs and the stuffed shells.
