Italian
Come enjoy old Italian-style dishes, known today as Italian comfort food, at The Kitchen Consigliere as executive chef Angelo Lutz preserves the heritage of real, authentic homestyle cooking. His spot is an informal BYOB Italian eatery with an emphasis on the peasant dishes found in traditional homestyle Italian cooking. Influenced by the dishes he ate as a youngster, Angelo's cooking style stems from teaching and recipes taught by his mother and grandmother. The atmosphere is informal and the food and menus change often, allowing The Kitchen Consigliere to be a cozy, quaint and not over-the-top eatery for the entire family. And good food isn't the only reason to eat at the café. The real adventure is meeting with the real kitchen consigliere; you will come for the food but stick around for the conversation.

The special was very odd- almost like chicken noodle soup with crabmeat instead. Just not yummy. The prices seem high for the entrees overall.
I was disappointed because it used to be so good here- but now i feel like it’s just so so- overpriced and not delicious like the old location.

My wife orders the same dish the gnocchi consigliere and she told them the sauce was off and the table next to us said the same thing and the waitress and manager basically just brushed it off

We had been going to Kitchen Consigliere for years, love the food and service. We went this time as my brother, also a restaurant owner in California, was in, along with my elderly mother. Apparently, there is a DJ there on certain nights. It was SOOOOO LOUD and very unenjoyable. It felt like we were in a club, and very inappropriate in our opinion, trying to have a nice dinner out with conversation. The only other complaint is that the Caesar salad wasn't very good, however the house salad is very good along with the other food dishes we ordered. I would recommend this restaurant again, but definitely won't be going back when they have the dj.

I really enjoyed the food but it is very overpriced. I had the gnocchi and it contained no meat. The price was around $23. That’s too expensive for that dish. But the service was good, and the taste of the food was fresh. I just wish the price per dish was a bit more practical.

We celebrated our anniversary here. The service could not have been better. Grilled romaine was almost a meal in itself and yummy! We both had seafood pasta entrees and they were excellent! One of Collingswood's gems!

Of all the times we've been here, for some crazy reason I've never ordered the crab ragu. Now, I can't imagine not ordering it every time! How to choose?!?! It was rich, thick, no shells, crab was sweet -- it was perfect.

Post nutcracker dinner. Knew we’d made a great choice when we spotted fairy wings on the coat rack at check in
We arrived a little early but had no wait for a table
Our server Jillian was attentive even though she had a large multi-family group that kept her busy. We observed her attention to detail meeting the dessert needs of the very young children in that group
Calamari & arrabica balls were terrific as always
So excited the seasonal pumpkin gnocchi was still available & was fantastic on a cold winter night
Hubby got his fav spaghetti carbonara & daigter loved the shrimp scampi ravioli
Next time need to save room for dessert which looked amazing!

The waitress was very attentive. We had a reservation for our anniversary, but despite that had to wait because a “larger” reservation was coming in an HOUR after us and they wanted to “save tables”. The food was good but as a garlic lover it was over the top with garlic. And the musssels were very sandy.

Throughly enjoyed our meal-seating was tight and restaurant not full. When we asked the hostess if we could have a bigger table she declined saying since there were only 2 of us we couldn't. The table we requested was vacant until we were leaving and there were still a fair amount of tables. Aside from this first impression the food made up for it to make it a positive experience. Excellent quality and quantity and our server was attentive.

We ordered the Salmon Mediterranean and Rigatoni Bolognese. They were both so delicious! It’s amazing that we are never disappointed at this gem of a restaurant.

OpenTable asked if I would recommend this to a friend. Kitchen Consigliere is so good, I'd recommend it to my worst enemy. I cannot describe how good everything is, I simply don't know that the proper words exist. Beyond the food, everything about the place is fantastic. If I could marry this restaurant, I would.

Myself, my husband and our two adult kids had dinner for the first time here on Sunday. The place is festive with Christmas decor and we were seated immediately on arrival. We had a 3:30 reservation and the place was pretty empty. We brought our own wine. The waitstaff were excellent. The food was great but not exceptional, prime rib appetizer special was salty and was smothered in peppers rather than complimented by them. My daughter’s gnocchi dish was very bland. The bread was served without the traditional oil and spices dip. Instead, there was only olive oil on the table with a jar of Parmesan. We were seated in a booth by the kitchen in an empty restaurant, that made no sense. Happy we went but will likely not return. We are happy to recommend this place to other people however.
