My friends and I were in EP for a week on business. We ate at IK on the recommendation from a friend (Duck Hunter) who was stationed at Fort Bliss years ago. The service is excellent, parking can be a challenge unless you know the area, should you not find parking in the front there is a lot in back.... More

This place has been open for many years and managed by the same people. The food is good enough and the service is efficient. The menu probably hasn't changed in 25 years but that's how everyone likes it. In a Mexican food town, any kind of Italian food is welcome. Food is tasty, well-prepared but not fancy. If you go...

This is a really quaint neighborhood restaurant. I love their spaghetti and meatballs. They have live music frequently on Friday nights. There are often people eating with their dogs on the lovely patio. It is my favorite place to get Italian food in El Paso. It just doesn't reek of the chain-restaurant feeling and is more reminiscent of a family-style... More

The Italian Kitchen is good. A little hard to fin though it is on a busy street. Parking is limited, but the food is fantastic. Been there for lunch many times. Always good service. Always good food. Good prices.

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.
