Italian
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.

It was my significant others Bday and it was amazing, first time going to the restaurant and the server was so polite and attentive. They did what I had asked of them when I made the reservations and I couldn’t of asked for a better surprise.

We had a $50 gift coupon for dinner. We had a $10.73 balance in which I paid cash with a $20.00 bill. The waitress only gave me $7.00 cash change back. I had every intention of giving a 20% minimum tip. We were absolutely thrilled at the entire dining experience. However, when waitstaff makes the decision to keep part of the change due back to me, my tip to them will seriously be reduced by AT LEAST the amount the waitperson kept. That's theft, I don't care how it's viewed. That totally put a damper on the end of our experience. We left very disappointed.

Fabulous neighborhood gem that feels like it's been plucked out of an Italian town, from the decor to the food to the ambiance. Great food, friendly service, excellent wines.

We visit this restaurant two or three times a year and would go more but there are so many choices where we live that's about all we have time for. It never fails to please us and we always leave with a good feeling about the food, the service, the ambiance. It never disappoints and is a wonderful place to take out-of-towners who are craving Italian from home. We have friends from Boston and from NYC who both say this place makes them feel like they are back at home.

I think the part of any Kenny's restaurant that continues to impress me is the consistently exemplary service. Terrance lived up to that reputation. I know for any special event, or just wanting to take friends somewhere nice, that Kenny's food will be good but their service will always be what sets them apart!

Seating a little too close for C-19. Also, our waiter was not wearing his mask properly - under his nose.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Dallas area, so it was nice to be back.

All the dishes, despite being tasty, disappointed as they were not your typical recipes, ex: for carbonara

I had better Italian dishes at places that do not claim to be Italian

Wow. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I go to Kenny's, my experience is exceptional. We went for my partners birthday and were met by our server, Courtney. She was exceptional, as all of our servers have been, and took care of us the entire night. We did not want for anything. My partner has a gluten allergy and she provided him with gf bread, options, and a cute improvised dessert. AND she treated him to a gift card, which made our entire day. The food is insanely good, so much so that we fight over it when we get home. I get the ravioli, but have them toast it, and it's a revelation. Trust me on this, you will not be disappointed in your experience here. THIS is what going out to eat should be. Thank you Kenny's for raising the standard and keep up the good work...and food.

Kenny’s Italian has a nice ambience when we went for lunch. Our waiter Matt was very attentive and personable. The pace of the meal was very good and we never felt rushed. Food was excellent with my shrimp scampi as well as my wife’s veal piccata.
