Kenny’s Italian Kitchen serves classic "Southern Italian American" food modeled after the "Little Italy" sections of Boston and New York. These Italian American styles of veal, chicken and seafood will include Parmigiana, Picatta and Marsala. Of course Kenny's Italian Kitchen wouldn't miss out on the classic meatballs, sausage & peppers or linguini & clams to name a few.

Kenny’s Italian Kitchen is decorated with red checkered cloth table cloths, dark woods and the walls are adorned with black and white photos of friends, family and regular guests. A cozy patio and full service bar accompany the warm, friendly and comfortable atmosphere. You will swear you just dined at a neighborhood Italian joint in the Northeast.

I group of co-workers try new cuisine each month through recommendations of Open Table reviews. This month was Kenny's Italian Kitchen. We were not disappointed. The service was above reproach. Our waitress was the "bomb". She was attentive without being overly interruptive, allowing us to visit but taking care of us. I had the mushroom ravioli. It was amazing and I would order again and again. A co-worker had the sausage and peppers and raved about it. Another had the gorgonzola salad and was very impressed. We will definitely eat here again. Great job Kenny's!!

We always enjoy our birthday dinners at Kenny’s. We dined in the outdoor patio and it was perfect. Not to loud and bright.
The food was delicious as always.

Excellent service and amazing food! You can create 1/2 plate options with a chicken dish and a pasta dish. I had the chicken parmigiana and the mushroom ravioli in truffle sauce. Yummy yummy yummy. The bruschetta is also definitely worth trying! Happy hour is M-F from 5-7 and they offer $5 house wines (originally $9).

You will always get a great meal at Kenny's and they really appreciate their customers. Their unique take on classic dishes are flavorful. Try their bruschetta or their ceasar salad. Both are great starters. Also they have a 50/50 plate where you can choose two different pasta dishes so you can try two different pastas. I had sausage and pepper in a red sauce and carbonara in a cream sauce. The sausage had a nice heat to it and the carbonara was oh so cheesy.

We had a lovely Italian evening at Kenny’s Italian kitchen! We arrived early and had a drink at the bar. The place was busy. They offered to seat us on the enclosed patio, but we waited for a table in the main dining room. Red and white checked tablecloth’s make you feel right at home. Our server was very nice and we enjoyed the chicken Parmesan, which I substituted with linguine and my had Half lasagna, half Bolognese. He thought it was one of the best Bolognese ever, a more smoky taste than the traditional, which the server recommended. We thought the price points were fair for the casual atmosphere, large servings and great quality. You can’t go wrong with any of Kenny’s restaurants. Our favorite is the Woodfire Grill but the burger joints and East Coast Pizza in Plano are all consistently well staffed with great food offerings. Also appreciate their quality red wines! In a busy area, overrun with great restaurants and new options, Kenny’s still gets five stars!

Kenny’s is our go-to restaurant as we eat gluten free. There is no upcharge for ANY GF substitutions, the food is excellent and the service is superb. Out of town guests always ask if we can go to Kenny’s if we are going to have a meal out.

The hostesses are excellent—very friendly & efficient. Everything was ready & as we had asked. This was s typical “Kenny’s experience. All things were very nice, delicious, & the server was knowledgeable about the menu & also the cocktails as well. I will recommend this restaurant to my clients & will, of course, plan other events at this restaurant again.

We had a very nice experience Saturday night. Hubs had the manicotti special and I had Chicken piccata. Drinks were a bit slow coming out so they offered to comp them. Split the chopped salad to start and ended up the night splitting a cannoli. They know how to treat their guests at Kenny’s. Make sure you make reservations ahead of time.

This was our first visit to Kenny’s and we can’t wait to go back! The food was incredible and the service was better than any 5 star reataurant. Half way through dinner, our server, Chelsea, poured my half consumed martini into a fresh chilled glass! The manager, Amanda, came by the table to say hello and when we told her this was our first visit she brought out an appetizer on the house. Neither of these gestures were necessary nor expected but so appreciated and the kind of thing that will bring us back. There are so many restaurants in this area from which to choose but Kenny’s is on the top of our list.

This place is absolutely amazing. It’s an authentic Italian experience. On every visit I get positively surprised with something else. Today it was the Canoli. It’s really good. Book your table in advance because it’s always busy.

Our server Tony, was wonderful. I had the lasagna and the eggplant parmesan. Both seemed old and reheated. The eggplant was very bitter. The bread that was brought to the table was dry.

This is the second time I have dined at Kenny's and unfortunately, I probably wont be returning.

It was also very loud and hard to carry on a conversation.

Food was excellent; our server was Dana and she was friendly, knowledgeable and sold me on the lunch special with Prosciutto wrapped chicken breasts served with a pesto cream sauce on a bed of angel hair pasta. Just delicious.

I’ve eaten at Kenny’s several times throughout the years and have loved it.
So, I was disappointed when 3out of 4 meals were just ok. The sauce tasted burnt or bitter on 2 meals and they used too much liquid butter on my Marsala.

Service and atmosphere are great.

However, I’m not sure we’ll be back.

Although we live quite a distance from Kenny's (we live south of Houston), we always make it a point to go to Kenny's whenever we're in town. The food is delicious and the service is usually superior. This last time service was a little bit slow and I actually had to say something. Our waiter, Jonathan, went out of his way to make things right and did an excellent job. The manager also came over to apologize and gave us a $15 gift card for the next time we go. I highly recommend Kenny's Italian and all of their other restaurants as Kenny's seems to do things right!

Service and food were awesome. They let each person split entrees, so you can try more than one dish. All eight were outstanding!
