I am shocked that Italian Kitchen is listed on Tripadvisor as #7 out of 13 in Ardsley because it is an excellent restaurant. The service is great -- attentive, but never hovering -- and the ambiance is cozy and inviting. Everything I've ever tasted on the menu is delicious, and much of it is unlike anything you've had before, such as the Stozapretti, and a pasta with meltingly tender octopus (I disliked octopus until I tasted this dish!). I particularly love that most pastas can be ordered as half portions -- very large half portions at that -- so that you don't have to overstuff yourself. If I had to level any criticism, it's that I am somewhat baffled by the serving size of the $5-6 appetizers, often very generously sized, in comparison to some of the $12-14 appetizers, which can be skimpy for the price (such as the beet salad which, though delicious, is pricey and usually lacks enough cheese). Overall, however, it is a minor criticism because the food is so very, very good. The fact that it's getting harder and harder to get a reservation attests to Italian Kitchen's greatness.
