The Kitchen Italian Cafe & Pizzeria Restaurant Review

: This relatively undiscovered eatery on the edge of Old Pasadena is a cozy refuge from the throngs of humanity a couple blocks away on Colorado Boulevard. Its brick walls are punctuated by a lot of windows and paintings, while Plexiglas-topped tables are dressed in red-and-white cloths. There’s a warm ambience and the straightforward menu of pizzas, pastas and old-fashioned entrées like chicken Marsala and scampi is generally well executed.
