Italian Kitchen is a small niche of Italy both in decor and food. For 19 years this restaurant has served a variety of your Italian favorites. I had a dish of bow tie pasta and a lemon pesto sauce with chicken that tingled your taste buds. My friend had a light tomato sauce with pasta; her comment that the past... More

Nice little place. I ordered the Chicken Piccata. The sauce had a nice lemon taste and the pasta was good. The two chicken breasts that came with it were very dry and thin. The employees were very friendly. I did not complain about the dryness of the chicken. When I tried to decide between the Tiramisu or the Cannoli, the... More

We arranged for a group dinner several weeks in advance and yet somehow this restaurant had only one waiter and no bus service available for the entire restaurant. We were in a separate room which was nice and assured that we did not disturb the other patron as we were a group of 20 or so. About half way through... More

Everything is made fresh and the atmosphere is quiet. The menu is a little different than your average Italian food but all is freshly prepared.

Came here with some family. We all tried a different dish and everything was fantastic! Creme Brule was an awesome finish to the evening

I met a friend for lunch here about a week ago. I had never been before and didn't know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was nice, the bathroom was clean (HUGE bonus), and the food was delicious! The wait staff was also very nice and friendly. The bread was fresh and soft, and my entree was... More

First time diners here we enjoyed everything about the place. Shared a Bruschetta appetizer before our Spaghetti Bolognese and Chicken Marsala entrees. The Bolognese was flavorful and served piping hot. The Marsala was excellent as well served with a side of pasta in the Marsala sauce with mushrooms. The pasta alone is reason to return. Portions are ample, service very... More

We have been dining here since it first opened several years ago. The Italian Kitchen never disappoints in quality or level of service. On our latest visit we were promptly seated, drink orders taken and served with quiet efficiency. The menu selection is remarkable, with all dishes described in detail. The Chicken Florentine is the best I have ever tasted... More
