Absolutely amazing. I came with a friend I had not seen in many years. The staff was friendly and asked us what brought us there and we explained that this was the first time we had seen each other since 1983. They brought us a...complimentary appetizer (bruschetta) and it was some of the best I have ever had. We were encouraged to order two half orders if we were undecided between two items so we definitely did this. The portions were large and I can guarantee we did not leave hungry. Our waiter was attentive and kept our glasses filled. Even though we sat and talked for over 3 hours, we were never rushed. Can’t wait to go back. Highly recommend Sammy’s ravioli with fettuccine sauce.More

I have been wanting to try Kenny’s for some time, and I’m so glad we finally went-twice in one week! The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. Dana served us on our first visit, and Ryan was our waiter today. They were both...great! I plan on returning for the $5 martini Monday and trying yet another entree.More

The hubby and I were in the mood for Italian food so I Googled "Best Italian food in Addison" and Kenny's came up. It had pretty good reviews so we decided to give them a try. Mannnnnnn. The food was amazing. Everything was hot and...fresh and AUTHENTIC. Not anything like Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill. We got the stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer and they were phenomenal. I got the Sicilian Shrimp and Fettuccine and hubby got the Chicken Parmesean. They both were delicious. Our sever was Terrance and he was great. Very knowledgeable and attentive. Amanda another server brought our food out and she was great. If you are in the mood for great Italian food and top notch service, come to Kennys.More

Our family of 4 stopped in for dinner and was very pleased with the menu offerings. The staff are all very pleasant/friendly and from the moment you walk in you can tell locals like to dine here. The italian bread served was warm and tasty,...not hard and chewy. I enjoyed the East Coast Linguini which was one of the best butter garlic sauces I have ever had!! Generous portion of shell fish too. Other entrees ordered were Lasagna, Chicken Parm, and Pizza all very good. The Bellini Martini was superb. Observations that doesn’t get this restaurant 5 stars is 1: the ambience is conflicted: With picnic styled tablecloths, many many framed pictures on the wall (overkill to be honest) it screams “down home” family/neighborhood flare but then there’s is dim lighting almost dark atmosphere for some odd reason, but this is definitely not a setting for a romantic date night dining experience. 2: Bathroom also needs more frequent checks as trash was overflowing and tissue debris all over the floor.More

Mom, daughter of myself went to dinner here at Kenny's on a Sunday evening. Yes, we had a reservation and was Sat immediately. I must say, super impressed with the service. Our server, Alexis, was A+.....simply awesome!!! She has set the standard for others now....And the food, from the bread to the balsamic oil, to the salmon, meatballs and lasagna......we left completely satisfied. It was suggested we go to Kenny's Wood Fire but extremely glad we ended up here instead (I'll go to your Wood Fire soon though). Superb job! Will definitely come back to try your other dishes and for your Martini Monday!!!More

We have been going to Kenny’s for many years since he opened his first restaurant at this location. He now has several other restaurants but this is our favorite. All of his food is delicious from a great burger to a gourmet dinner meal. Always...busy so go at off peak times.More

Even though you don't need a reservation, the person seating me put my info into the computer like I had one anyway. Time consuming. Took me about a minute to get away from the "wait to be seated booth". I know it's not much time,...but should've been only seconds. Waited 20 minutes for someone to take my order. When I got here, the place had only been open 10 minutes, and had only 2 tables in use. By the time I got my order placed, tables were almost full, and other guests that came in after me were already eating. Waiter took my order, then asked about my salad and bread. I saw nothing on the menu about those coming with my meal, so I asked. Those cost extra. The way he asked was like they came with the meal. So, if I hadn't inquired about those, my bill would've been about $7 more than expected. $4.99 was the cheapest salad on the menu. Received my food almost 15 minutes after ordering. Came out fresh and hot. Although the lasagna tasted great, I couldn't eat whole thing. (bottom pasta was so hard, I couldn't even cut it with the butter knife at the table). When I got done with the eatable portion, you could see the bottom was burnt. Not just overdone, but black al around the edges about a quarter inch. This was fine dining, NOT at its finest. I let the wait staff know about pasta, they gave me a $10 dining certificate for next time. And overt charged me for the lasagna from what the menu price was.More

When you find a place that offers excellent food (the three of us had and highly recommend the Gnocchi, Fettuccine Carbonara and the Lasagna although we're pretty sure everything else on the menu is just as good) along with attentive but unobtrusive service and reasonable...prices you just have to go back again and again. We certainly will! Oh, and leave some room to try the Tiramisu and Cannoli. You'll be glad you did!More

I chose Kenny's for my birthday dinner. I had a group of 23 and couldn't afford the thousands it costs at other restaurants to have this big of a group. Right away when I called Kenny's for my reservation they were accommodating and asked questions...to decipher what I might need. We were placed in a back room that pretty much felt private! I loved the environment when I stepped in. It seems like your neighborhood local italian place and felt extremely homey. It quickly became crowded as the night when on. The staff were friendly and the restaurant smelt amazing!! The staff made it look effortless to serve my table of 23. We didn't have a long wait for anything!! We ordered the garlic bread. This was not ordinary bread, though. There was something unique about it and it was devoured by the table. I was recommended the lamb with a wine reduction and parmesan risotto for my meal and I cannot recommend it enough! I still dream about the meal. It was so decadent. The flavors just blended perfectly together. This restaurant is just perfect for a fun weekend night or a special occasion. Kenny's can do it all! I will be coming back throughout the year and most likely for my birthday this year as well.More

This is not meant to sound snarky - why do you want wifi? Shouldn't you be focused on the people, food and restaurant rather than the internet? Turn off your devices and enjoy Kenny's ..... But, if I recall correctly, they... More
