About Kenny's Italian Kitchen

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.

Always good food and good service. No more $1 meatballs on Sunday :( as they have moved this special to the Kenny's East Coast Pizza in Plano. But the meatballs are still on the appetizer menu here and good as ever! As always, Kenny's never disappoints and strives to ensure that you are satisfied. The manager honored the meatball special for us today and we did not ask for an exception.

Pleasantly surprised to get a reservation on short notice. A bit busy and crowded at the entrance and bar. Tu the bar server came out from around the bar to take our order and came back quickly with our drinks.
Great service and excellent food as usual although the portions seemed a bit smaller than in the past. The manager visited all of the tables at least twice to ensure all was well.

We drive from Fort Worth just to eat at Kenny’s Italian Kitchen. It is about a 60 mile round trip. Kenny’s is a wonderful, friendly place with exceptional staff and great food. My wife and I split salad and linguini carconara. No plate charge. We have several requests for the preperation of the carbonara; easy sauce and well done bacon. They get it right every time.

Everything here is done professionally. From when you walk in the door until you leave, is an effortless, thoroughly pleasant dining experience.

I don't know how "Kenny" does it, but every Kenny's restaurant we have tried has been a new favorite. The food is top quality, the service is excellent and the noise level is good. I had the chicken picatta and my husband had the veal. Both were wonderful. I discovered the "Frenchie" martini on my first visit, and am hooked. The tiramisu is out-of-this-world! OK, technically maybe just out-of-this-country: It is flown in twice a month from Rome. It's the real deal!

Outstanding, attentive service! The vintage Italian food was tailored to our dietary restrictions (one vegetarian and one gluten sensitivity) without sacrificing flavors or presentation. Even though the restaurant was full, we felt special. You bet we'll be back... with friends!

The food was good. The service was poor. If we asked for anything it took him 10 minutes to bring it each time. Mostly he just disappeared. Valet parking was $5 plus tip. Don't remember the last time I paid for valet parking at a restruant. The man and woman standing right next to our table in a long, loud conversation didn't help. Did learn that the guy was exhausted and not spending Thanksgiving with some horrible, hateful woman.

food was decent, nothing special. I ordered the fettuccine carbonara. It was a little bland and had way too much bacon (which i didnt even know was possible). My Dr.Pepper was flat, but the garlic cheese bread was awesome. My server was awesome. 4 stars on customer service.

Kenny's is consistently excellent. The food is amazing. Kenny's is well-managed and they place a high value on hospitality and professionalism. Nothing makes a dining experience more enjoyable than a professional waitperson who knows the menu, knows their job and executes unobtrusively, but warm and friendly at the same time. We always return to Kenny's Italian and Kenny's Woodfire Grill for our celebrations. Never disappointed!

What an amazing establishment! Given this is one of my favorites, I planned to take my Mother and her friend to dinner here for her Birthday. My flight from Boston was delayed and I was not able to make it for dinner, so I called Kenny's to make them aware there would only be 2 in the party; I asked the young lady who took my call to make sure they felt special. My Mother thanked me the next day for dinner however, I was not the one who paid for the Ladies' dinners; Kenny's pick up the tab!! What an incredible group of people!!
