Customer Testimonials

Customer few love words…

This is our new favorite Italian place in Springfield! We love Italian but our standards are high. We haven’t loved any other place but we loved our food. Even the side salad was great! I had tortellini and my husband had lobster linguini. Both were cooked to perfection and the flavors were great. I just wish I had piece of bread to soak up the wonderful sauce!

R. Ulbricht

If I could give a 10 star review, I would! We thoroughly enjoyed the REAL Italian food at Italian Kitchen in downtown Springfield. My grandparents were from Sicily, and so is Alessandro, the owner. We ordered lasagna and shrimp fettuccine, which was absolutely delicious … and let’s not forget dessert … the cannolis are to die for! Thanks for a great meal… 👍 We will definitely be back for MORE!

Darlene Myrick

Ok. Literally everyone NEEDS to know about this place. I tried them yesterday Chicken Piccata extra capers , and there mac n cheese.. oh and a desert I can’t for the life of me remember the name of it but it was ALL so good.. SO GOOD that I had it again today.. Oh my goodness 👌🇮🇹 AUTHENTIC ITALIAN. Amazing Deserts. Alex (who I believe is the owner), he was so very nice and accommodating. As I left he said if there’s ever anything else I want on the menu to please ask – I felt like I was at someone’s home. I believe they are carry out for the most part, but they can do larger parties. ALSO – love the note that was left. You can tell it was made with love. Sorry I couldn’t provide a picture of the food (I ate it right away)

Jennifer Goins

I am not exaggerating when I say that I had the best spaghetti in my entire life. Of note, it’s not just “spaghetti”… it was the far superior “Spaghetti alla Amatriciana”. Don’t worry if you’re like me and aren’t sure how to say “Amatriciana” just say whatever comes to your heart, or point to it emphatically, and then get it, and finally put it in your mouth and prepare yourself to thank GOD for a true Italian dish right here in Springfield, MO.
Side note, I am about to gain 10 lbs because I want to try everything on the menu. Everything.
