We live in Coral Ridge 2 minutes from the restaurant. Before making reservations we asked if they have a nice veal chop on the menu. They stated yes it is very good. When we arrived at the restaurant the wine selection was okay and over priced. The appetizer were okay but nothing special. However, the most disappointing part of the night was the entrée. The veal was beaten to a pulp with no flavor and the salad was terribly dry. When we asked the waiter for salad dressing and to something to enhance the flavor of the veal he had an attitude, basically saying get over it. We requested to speak to Vincent the owner, he never showed and I guess we were not important enough to him. We emailed him directly and never got a response back. Our experience and service was just Terrible and we will never step a foot in that place again.

This Italian Restaurant serves amazingly delicious food. The arugula salad is to die for. Pizza dough is make to perfection, pasta al dente perfectly made. However, service is not great and music is very loud that you can hardly talk. Ambience is just ok. Not for a romantic dinner. More for families or friends. Prices are quite high considering you are eating pasta or pizza. But then again, what makes the place good is just the food.

We have dined at Kitchenetta often but our experience this past time left such a sour taste we will never return unless under new ownership. Upon getting our pasta dish we mentioned it was a bit scarce for the. 29.00 price. Four medium shrimp and a bare minimum plate of pasta left my wife and I hungry. And we had the pizza to begin ! Worse part was when we mentioned it to the manager and subsequently the owner we were told we could purchase a side of pasta! And so rude in their response. They've lost my business and to think over a few dollars of pasta! Foolish on their part.

We have dined here preciously and this was by far our last time giving it a try. The dishes were small portions- 4 small shrimp on top of a small portion of pasta for $29. We complained and they said for additional charge we could have a side of pasta! We will never go back. And the owner was rude when we asked if they could give a little more pasta! Like it was caviar you'd think we wanted!

I just cannot recommend this restaurant anymore. My husband and I have dined at Kitchenetta about a dozen times over the past few years and have ultimately given up on going there. The food is generally quite good, so we overlooked the concrete decor with plastic chairs and the high decibel levels. We even repeatedly overlooked the rude female who "greets" diners. No more. She must be an owner or an owner's wife, because she would be promptly fired in any other establishment. I'm not paying for that haughty, rude attitude anymore. Ciao, donna brutta!
