Italian Kitchen West is a small restaurant with a big heart. You can always find Mom or one of her two sons at the restaurant, and sometimes all three. It's easy to see that this is a labor of love, and you can tell in the food, and in their attention to service. Portions are generous, and sticking with the... More

Great place to take a date, particularly while sitting on the porch area. The chicken jerusalem and spaghetti are my favorites. Best Italian in El Paso.

This is NOT Italian food. The restaurant in Five-Points (Pershing St) is nothing more than an aging, run-down row-house which passes itself off as an Italian food joint. El Pasoans have no idea what real Italian food is. If you like frozen lasagna that was pulled off the shelf at Wal-Mart, then you'll LOVE this place. The portions are small,... More

My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and decided to go to a restaurant we hadn't been to in a while. We went on a Saturday night and arrived around 6:20 and were told it would be about a 10 minute wait. We sat at the barstools to wait, not once were we asked if we wanted a... More

Absolutely my favorite Italian restaurant, in my opinion it is better than Olive Garden. The staff is friendly and the food is exquisite. I highly recommend this place.

Decent Italian food, but not the best I've had. Service is slow. Staff not very friendly. Wine list is very limited.

A nothing really special Italian restaurant. Mostly spaghetti in some form like with mushrooms, meat sauce, etc., The bread is nothing close to real Italian Bread. More like warmed up stale commercial bulls.

I can't even remember the first time I went to the Italian Kitchen but I've been going for years! I have never been disappointed. The food is always hot and tasty. My staple is the Eggplant Parmegiana. I have yet to taste a better eggplant anywhere. The salads are always fresh and I love their House Dressing. The garlic bread... More
