The outside seemed like another art nouveau restaurant but once inside, it is so different. As you step in, your warmly greeted by a happy joyful place full of diners have a good time, noisy and family like. Just like the places we ate at in Italy. Not my idea of a trattoria as they serve real Italian food. Since... More

When I arrived to Kitchenetta, I noticed that it had a very casual and informal atmosphere; it is not an elegant place but that's not a reason to underestimate it. Since the warm bread arrived to my table, which was more a kind of focaccia full with olive oil and rosemary, I knew this was an authentic italian place. Then,... More

We'er professional middle aged locals and not high maintenance. This was our 1st time at Kitchenatta and most likely our last. Honestly we have no issues with the quality of food. Wine, bread, entries all excellent. Prices are ridiculousness! The most expensive pasta and non-protein dishes we'er ever seen for casual dining. The place is LOUD! To the point of... More

I came here this evening with my wife and we were so excited. The portions were HUGE and Delicious! The place is decorated very nicely with a nice contemporary touch. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Our waiter Jeffery was super nice and knowledgable. We leaned towards his expertise on what to order and we were extremely satisfied... More

With Frederico Fellini films playing in the background this restaurant features Italian cooking with service that is almost surreal. The plates are huge with insanely large portions. The cooking is adequate, whether its fried calamari (made soggy with sauce), linguini with cherrystone clams, a variety of fish, seafood, veal milanese, pastas, pizzas, or contorni. There's an obsessive attention to changing... More

I have nothing bad to say . Service was excellent . Atmosphere was cool with open kitchen . Noisy , but I didn't mind it . Food was solidly good . Everyone liked their meal but we were not "wowed ". Actually I loved the "pizza like" bread they served with the meal . I wouldn't rush to go there... More

Very accommodating and friendly. We had the tomatoes and mozzarella salad delish! Next, we had the calamari..it was done perfectly and for an entree we did the family style... More

Went to K for the 1st time after driving past it hundreds of times. I live in Ft. Lauderdale year round and regularly dine out. This place is over rated and over priced. The female hostess is rude and condescending. The noise is unbearable. I ordered Fruiti De Mare with red sauce, which I've had dozens of times at other... More

You could drive by Kitchenetta a thousand times and not even know what a hidden gem it is. It's casual, bright colors, and location would lead astray. Give it a shot! The food here is absolutely delicious, ambiance is perfect, and my dinner leftovers lasted me the whole next day... I have a feeling we should have ordered family-style. Either... More
