Come enjoy old Italian-style dishes, known today as Italian comfort food, at The Kitchen Consigliere as executive chef Angelo Lutz preserves the heritage of real, authentic homestyle cooking. His spot is an informal BYOB Italian eatery with an emphasis on the peasant dishes found in traditional homestyle Italian cooking. Influenced by the dishes he ate as a youngster, Angelo's cooking style stems from teaching and recipes taught by his mother and grandmother. The atmosphere is informal and the food and menus change often, allowing The Kitchen Consigliere to be a cozy, quaint and not over-the-top eatery for the entire family. And good food isn't the only reason to eat at the café. The real adventure is meeting with the real kitchen consigliere; you will come for the food but stick around for the conversation.

Took my girlfriend there for her birthday and we got our appetizers within minutes and the service was amazing. She had the grilled salmon and I had the veal and it was excellent. The service was excellent too. We highly recommend this place if you want some amazing Italian food.

There were three in our party and we each had a different entree. Everyone felt the food was great. The only negative was that the background music was a little too loud. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Kit Con is my favorite place for Italian food. We had a wonderful meal for 4 to celebrate my brother s birthday. Only complaint I have is the background music was too loud which caused everyone's conversation to be at a higher level than necessary. Other than that, great job Angelo

Aside from the fact that my wide and I forgot that all of the restaurants in Collingswood are BYOB, the focus should be on the food and Angelo Lutz’s team in the kitchen didn’t disappoint. Appetizers of the Arancini and Caprese Special were excellent. Our entrees were the Flounder Picante (lightly battered in lemon sauce) and the Crab Ragu (Crab gravy and Lump crab meat). Both were tasty and the portions were very hearty. We shared the Pizzella Neapolitan with coffee and tea. Plenty of fresh fruit between three pizzellas…very tasty. The Kitchen Consigliere is a can’t miss.

Shrimp and Scallops and the Carbonara are always amazing. The sausage meatball is the best, that broccoli rabe is second to none.

My girlfriend and I went back to Kitchen Consigliere for the 2nd time in 3 weeks. We had an amazing first experience and decided to try it out to see how consistent it is. Let me tell you this place does not disappoint. For a BYOB the prices are extremely reasonable and the portion sizes do not have you wanting for more. Salad is included with the dinners and the clams are unreal. Kierie? I hope I am spelling her name right! Was an incredible server and really sounded like she understood the ins and outs of the specials. Let the pictures speak for themselves if I could give it 10 stars I would. PS - The “Brookie” is the dessert you want

What a great Italian restaurant. Went on the recommendation of friends and glad we did. It happened to be sangria Sunday! Great little surprise to this byob. The clams in white sauce app was bread dipping good! The Sunday Gravy meal that came with meatball sausage brassiole and rib was amazing. Eggplant parmesan was good as well. Tiramisu was decadent. Service was better than outstanding.

Food was great, service was excellent, ambiance fair as we were in their tent. Chairs out there were more like patio chairs (too low for eating comfortably). Otherwise all was good!

Always a good choice for Collingswood Italian dining. The big outdoor tent serves
as a good "safe place" for crowd spacing.

The food was great, however the prices have increased dramatically. The menu and prices shown on google do not match the menu and prices at the restaurant. The increases were for every menu option.

Also, the kitchen was incredibly slow. We ordered as soon as we sat at 6:15, however we did not receive our actual entrees until 7:45. It was a party of 2, so that wait time for food to be prepared is not acceptable.

Anonymous; This is Angelo the owner, I want to personally apologize for the poor experience. As the owner I will own this review, however I fell there are a few things I must state. It's no secret there is a labor shortage, but we have tried to keep pace with the steady flow of business we have. Unfortunately we are now limiting reservations to ensure Quality, Service and a Great Dining experience. As for pricing our last increase to our menu was 2017.

We dine here all the time, one of our favorite Italian restaurants. They have the best chicken parm and Sunday gravy. Everything on the menu is excellent, you can’t go wrong with anything there.
If you haven’t tried this place, you need to try it, you will not be disappointed.

Food was delicious. Started off with mussels in red sauce that were really good. I got the shrimp and scallops meal and my fiancé had the chicken piccata, both very good. Finished off the meal with the brookie dessert (warm brownie and chocolate chip cookie served with ice cream) which we were fighting over the last bites for!
Service was decent, we were there at a very busy time but our server made sure all our needs were met.
