Description: 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.

Our group was very disappointed with Kenny's Italian Kitchen. The only reason that I'm giving them three stars instead of two stars is for the service. Our server was prompt, attentive, and delivered our appetizers and entrées promptly and piping hot. Beverages were offered immediately and refilled when needed. We had the prosciutto-wrapped cheese and garlic bread for starters. Both... More

Went to Kenny's for the first time last night. Read the reviews and it sounded great. We arrived early, about 5 on a Friday night. We were seated right away. Nice atmosphere but since we were one of only 2 seated tables, I wonder why they put us by the food prep area. Had to ask them to stop throw... More

This is a gem in a sea of restaurants nearby. The ambiance is so quaint, the services was outstanding and food and wine were great! The special wine for the night was Col Solare and it was priced fair and everyone loved it! All of the apps and entrees were so good! Can't wait to go back!

Server was excellent. Food was unique and exceptionally tasty. Loved the outside seating. Pasta meal was fun, capers made the dish!

A great place for family and friends. Warm and inviting and welcoming. A terrific menu with solid choices. 90% of the menu is gluten free. Tasty drinks. Wonderful wines. Our favorite place for Italian food.

I came in for dinner as a single diner. I was seated quickly and received prompt service. The bread was warm and the waiter prepared the oil/vinegar plate for me. My tastes lean towards simple and I ordered the cheese ravioli which looked to be fresh, hand made and delicious; not the frozen mass produced that some other restaurants serve.... More

Came for a lunch with coworkers. Nice spot. Clearly very popular. Coming from New York where Italian food is king, I had low expectations that were sadly met with our main courses. Bread was warm and fresh. Meatball appetizer was tasty. But, we all had salads which sounded delicious but the chicken/salmon/salad were so over salted they were Almost inedible.... More

I went there for a business dinner with a group. The food was hit and miss. The red sauce for the meat ball appetizer tasted like it was from a can. The calamari was good and not overcooked. The tiramisu was good as well. I was not thrilled with the osobuco. The meat was cooked nicely but the sauce tasted... More

Coworkers and I frequent Kenny's for a good sit-down lunch that can still get us back to the office in an hour. Best deal are the "Grinders" which basically are entrees served on a split loaf of great bread and in-house made potato chips. My fave is the Chicken Parm - I just eat it open face off the bread...

my wife and I were in the area so we decided to give it a try based on the reviews we saw on Trip advisor. Some comments were accurate - the standard bread served and the Garlic Cheese bread were very go. The Italian Chopped salad and the Caesar salad were both great. However we were not impressed with our... More
