The food here is simply amazing. Starters were their fresh bread cooked to perfection and delicious. We then had bruschetta and that was amazing. For the main plate we ordered chicken parmigiana and this was perfection in every bite! Must try!

Had a reservation but still had to wait awhile but Monday night martini specials made up for it. Food was delicious from bruschetta to pasta to shrimp to tiramisu. Really good Italian food. A little pricey and waitress could have been friendlier but food made...up for it.More

My husband and teenage daughter were traveling into Dallas from Colorado for a soccer tournament and I was researching food options and came across Kenny’s. My daughter has several allergies (Gluten/Dairy/Soy/Shellfish), so as you can imagine, eating, while traveling, can be quite difficult for her/us....I emailed Elizabeth Mardeda, Managing Partner, at Kenny’s, to find out if there was anything on their menu that may accommodate her restrictions. Not only was Liz willing to go above and beyond to accommodate our families needs, but she was also so sweet! Kenny’s was willing to make a special batch of Gluten Free meatballs, create a salad specifically to her liking, and Liz even went to the local grocery store to purchase the special Gluten/dairy/soy free Ranch dressing my daughter loves to have with her Salads!! She said she “loves seeing great Mom's going above and beyond for their children!” Liz, you can’t imagine what this meant for our family. The burden and anxiety of food allergies, especially while traveling out of state, can make any trip stressful. However, because of you, not only did my daughter have an AMAZING meal (she said it was the BEST, EVER!!), but you made our trip to Dallas an unforgettable one!! Thank you!More

Specially drove 18 miles out of our way to eat here because of the rating. So disappointing. The food was bland . Requested lots of veggies and our pasta got 3 broccolini pieces and one mushroom cut in two and lots of tomatoes as our...veggies. I had a to go order and when we got back we found that a lot of liquid leaked out of the box. Also no napkins or forks were provided. I guess we could eat with our hands. Would not recommend this placeMore

My wife and I visited Kenny’s East Coast Pizza for lunch. We regularly frequented Kenny’s other local restaurants. Kenny’s ECP has the worst service of any restaurant I’ve ever patronized. The food is mediocre, and certainly not worth putting up with the horrendous service.

Everyone at Kenny's was delightful - from our hostess, Isabella, to our waitress Chelsea, they made us feel very special. Chelsea is the epitome of a great attendant; she was very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and efficient. She was right there every time we needed anything....She explained the night's special (I can't remember the name, but it had cheese inside a macaroni shell with shrimp, cheese, and a creamy sauce with a touch of red sauce). It sounded scrumptious! My husband wanted to try "Joey's bolognese" sauce on angel hair.. Chelsea warned that Joey's bolognese is a little "smokier" than regular bolognese (since it has a little bacon in it), but he decided to give it a try. Since neither of us are big eaters (anymore), Chelsea suggested a "split entre" where we could get a half order of one, and a half order of the other, so we jumped at it. She then brought out two plates with a little of each on each plate...perfect! I got the chopped Italian salad, and my husband chose the Italian side salad. Everything was good, but nothing was great. I wish I could say that both items were as good as they sounded. Others may just love them, but we were a little underwhelmed, especially after Yelp called this the best Italian restaurant in Dallas. Don't want to scare others away; the place, ambiance, restrooms, staff...everything was top drawer, but maybe we were just expecting too much. Price was reasonable for the quality.More

Promptly seated on a busy evening and the waitperson was there in moments calling me by name and welcoming us to the restaurant. Sara provided excellent suggestions throughout. She is passionate. Ask for her table! Meatballs were incredible. Very light and the sauce was outstanding....Kenny's lets you split entrees. What a deal. Servings are more than generous. We had chicken parm, eggplant parm and gnocchi asiago. All were delicious. Huge piece of tiramisu for dessert. It was excellent. The prices are better than any chain place and the food is light years better. If you like Italian, this will be your new go to place.More
