Tasty home cooked friendly Italian coming

We came for dinner on a Saturday on a recommendation from a friend. At 9 pm, there were still plenty of people there, suggesting to me something reputable. We sat ourselves and were treated kindly. I ordered the chicken Jerusalem and my wife the Italian dinner. Hers was a huge portioned meal... read more

The guy at the car rental place in the airport recommended the Italian Kitchen. It's a quaint restaurant - an old converted house. We sat at a lovely table near the front of the house. Our server was terrific. She walked us through the menu and helped us order. I had the half order of lasagna and a small bowl... More

I have eaten at this restaurant as a child, during my courting days, professional days, and now. The food has never changed, always delicious. I love the spaghetti with peperoni with an antipasto salad. The ambience is such that you do feel that you are in Italy. The only difference is that I like their food better. There is no... More

They have got to have probably the best pizza in town or pretty darn close to it. So if you are looking for great Pizza try out the Italian Kitchen West. It can't be beat.

The salad with house dressing is a nice start to the meal, The minestrone is full of vegetables and tasty. The servings are plenty... More

We visited the Italian Kitchen Thorn Ave. location on 10/23//'13. We had been to the Pershing location on previous occasions. Service was prompt and friendly. The salad was fresh and tasteful. I ordered the chicken parmigiana and was less than pleased. The sauce was a commercial product and quite plain. If you're in a hurry and on the west side... More

I know the Italian Kitchen is an El Paso classic, but I keep asking myself why? I've eaten there several times and it is never very good. The restaurant has swamp coolers so it is a sauna in the summer. Hot and sweaty. The pizza tastes like what you get from the frozen food section at the grocery store. You... More

This is an interesting restaurant in its decor and intimacy. I like it. My dining experiences have been enjoyable. Prices are reasonable and food of good quality. Eating here makes you feel like your grandma is serving you dinner she cooked herself.
