Perfect For:
  • Good for a Date
  • Authentic
  • Special Occasion
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.

We went for my birthday and our "Christmas Dinner" celebration. Christmas Dinner location is announced on Christmas, but is celebrated another time of the year. Its simply a great time to get together and spend time together with family on top of the holidays!
As far as our experience, we had a great time! Our reservation was for 7:15, but we were seated closer to 7:30. The place was HOPPING, but it was a Saturday night. I would say, no matter what, make sure you have a reservation. Once seat things went pretty smooth. We did not feel rushed to order or get through things. The best part is, everyone raved over their meals. The gnocchi was like a pillow of heaven with every bite! Also ordered the special of Lobster Ravoli. YUM! EVERYTHING WAS SO FRESH. I also had a cannoli at the end. Best cannoli filling I have ever had, even after I was already full! This place will not disappoint!

Fantastic meal!!! The crab ragu pasta was awesome with an amazing amount of crab. I’m bringing my whole family the next time. I went before a concert at theScottish Rite Auditorium and they got us out in plenty of time.

Food is great. They used to have a grilled romaine, but they took it off the menu - we miss that. But the veal parm was great and they have good Italian bread. We had the salted caramel cake for desert and it was awesome.

This was my first time here. I had heard how amazing it was so when my boss/friend wanted to take me out for my birthday dinner, I suggested this restaurant. It was very friendly but looked refined. We were seated at a table by the window for people watching. The service was great. We met the maker of the delicious and amazing desserts. She was soooo friendly. We met the owner and he made us feel as though we were in his home. It's BYOB. I had the Seafood Cioppino. It was divine! Scallops, shrimp, clams and mussels in a white sauce on homemade linguini. OMG! The pasta was DELICIOUS! Everything was delicious. The chicken dish my friend ordered was tender and perfectly seasoned. I have been talking about The Kitchen Consigliere since we were there. I highly recommend The Kitchen Consigliere!

Food was really good, a few different unique dishes unlike your typical menu. Sausage meatball with gemelli was fantastic, again not something you typically see, and my wife enjoyed the homemade gnocchi with ricotta. Being a BYOB is a nice option too!!!

Our waiter (John) was very unattentive. All he did was take our order. Did not come back to ask if everything was ok. Had runners bring us our food, while he busied himself falling all over what seemed to be regulars. We waited for ever for him to bring us the bill and only brought it over after we flagged one of the runners over to ask for it. Then he made us wait again to collect the bill. We seemed to be unimportant to him. Tip for servers that act that way: treat everyone the same. You never know who else wil become regulars!

We enjoy this restaurant because the food is consistently great. The staff, especially John, are very friendly and do a great job. The weekly specials give you an opportunity to try the different dishes..... a great value, just wish they would be posted the day before so you can make plans earlier . Get on the email list to be a part of this. We love this place and you will too!

My wife and I were late in discovering this restaurant and we love it. This was our fourth visit we made our reservation last minute but were lucky and got one at 4:30. Walk in the door and Boom you’re greeted by the hostess with a smile that could light up a room. The smile and the greeting are so genuine you find yourself asking your wife once you’re seated, “Do we know her?” That hostess, whatever she makes should be doubled, because she sets the tone for the entire meal. In this day and age where places don’t take reservations and the hostess is a college or high school kid that hands you a pager, to be greeted the way she does is amazing. Our server was a lovely young lady. She was knowledgeable and attentive and incredibly professional. Again, she smiled every time she spoke with us. When she spoke you could hear the smile in her voice. We had one of the appetizer specials which was amazing and I had the gnocchi’s in a rose sauce. They were disappointing and I would not recommend them. They were bland and lacking flavor and just a bad choice by me. We wrapped up the meal with a cannoli so I was smiling again. This is a restaurant with great atmosphere and great food, but to be honest there are plenty of those around. What makes this place so special, are the people that work there. Every person you come into contact with is neatly dressed, professional and polite and smiling. It is obvious they enjoy what they are doing and they take a tremendous amount of pride in their restaurant. No matter how you were when you entered you will definitely leave “fat and happy!”

It was noisy at the restaurant. I felt like I was sitting to close to the other table. It was cold and the food was just OK. I also think the food is over priced. Maybe if I ordered another dish I would have a different review.

Angelo comes through once again! Party of four, I enjoyed my pork shank & rigatoni special so much that I didn't pay attention to what the others had, but my wife, who always does a take-home, didn't this time since she finished the whole thing. I, on the other hand, rarely take anything home but the portion was enough to fill me and leave enough for lunch at home the next day. a big shout-out to Candy our server. Simply the Best!

Tried to go here. Had a 4:00 PM reservation.
We arrived early. Tried to get in at 3:50 PM.
The door was locked. We sat in the car and went back at 4:05 for our
4:00 reservation. The door was still locked. Lady at the hostess would not let us in.
Left and ate somewhere else. Don't know if I'll go back.
