Description: Kenny’s Italian Kitchen serves classic "Southern Italian American" food...
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.

Great local workday lunch spot

Kenny's is a frequent lunch place for us. The food is always fresh and good; lunch prices are very great; and the staff is friendly and accurate. They have changed their menu slightly (generally renaming their "Grinders" to sandwiches). They are still the best deal as you basically get a full... read more

We chose this restaurant as it was near our hotel at the Galleria Mall - only 4 minutes away - and it had good reviews. We were met immediately at the front and had to wait a minute or two for a table. We were taken to our table by the manager and soon met the server. She asked all... More

Was looking for some comfort food while traveling on business and Kenny's was perfect! The prosciutto wrapped fried mozzarella was especially good. Mains at the table included spaghetti with meatballs and sausage, chicken marsala and chicken picatta. All of the dishes were nicely done with ample portion sizes. This wasn't my first time eating here and will definetly not be... More

Thursday night. The restaurant was packed at 7:30 and 50% empty no later than 8:30. A small restaurant so reservations are a very good idea. Bar specialty is the assortment of martinis. Depending upon your taste buds, some are really good. Our appetizer, calamari, was left in the fryer too long and they were a little skimpy on the dip... More

The food was outstanding. However our waitress became irritated when we refused to order salads, or adult beverages with our meal. We assumed it was because it would effect her overall tip.

Visited while in town for a few days and was not very pleased. The food took forever to get and if it were good then it would have been worth the wait. When I did get it I wish I had went some where else. Hard to find good italian in this city.

I'll begin my review by saying I'm an avid fan of Kenny's Burger joint, and was craving a good Italian meal. So why not give Kenny's Italian Kitchen a try? Big mistake! Our waitress greeted us promptly at our table and took our drink and appetizer order. I ordered the fresh mozzarella and tomato and my husband ordered the meatballs.... More

I came here with my family because I saw that they have gnocchi. We asked for the gnocchi in vodka sauce as an appetizer instead of the entrée with gorgonzola sauce. The vodka sauce tasted very tart and like tin can. My family liked it. Next, my favorite dish, eggplant parmesan, was just okay. The slices are about 1/2 inch... More
