Always a good time – I had eaten here about 5 years ago and had a great time with friends and was happy to see it is still in business. It's a great casual place to eat where they don't try to glam up the food and they don't over play the italian decor like most italian restaurants. It's just good basic food and they leave you to enjoy yourself with out being too fussy. It feels more like a 'real' italian restaurant where food it main theme, but as stated before basic food, not glammed up.
Great Italian! – When I come to Charlotte I always have to eat at the Open Kitchen. I have been eating here for sixteen years and it is always a treat. Nothing fancy just good food.
This is the best Charlotte has to offer? – I was told the Open Kitchen was good Italian here. Not only was the food awful, but the service...UGH. I originally ordered eggplant parmigiana, which, on the menu, is described as being made with beef (who puts beef in eggplant parmigiana?). I'm a vegetarian, so I asked for it to be made without. The waitress said fine, but when it came it, yes, had beef. I tried to send it back...and the manager came out and argued with ME because I should have read the menu. The food itself was overcooked, the sauce watery. I'll never go back.
OPEN kITCHEN – It really doesn't get any better...A true original!!!
Try the Italian Sausage Steak....Mama Mia!!
Old School Italian! – All I have to say is, I asked for a bowl of sauce to dip the bread in - there were delicious chunks of mushrooms in the sauce! I've eaten probably 500 Greek Salads in my lifetome and I would rate Mama K's dressing as No. 1! Can't wait to go back. And they have Peronis! Alan - Lake Wylie
Fantastic – Best Greek Salad in the Southeast. Super pizza was very flavorable. Great service in a casual setting. You gotta try this resturant!
old country ambience – EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE. A LANDMARK OF THE CHARLOTTE AREA.
firstname.lastname@example.org – Not your run of the mill Italian dining, a dining experience so special you'll go back year after year, after year, after year. Wonderful food, great service. Veal parmigiana to die for. Ask for the buttered garlic bread! It's the best. The reason it's outlasted the rest---It's still the best.
atsa good pizza pie – have gone to the open kitchen for over 35 years,have never been disappointed, Mama K's is still the best pizza around
Taste and see the goodness of Italian – The Open Kitchen offers abundant servings of Italian delights. The environment speaks of a legacy of generations who have either owned, served or eaten at this fine restaurant. It is a "one of a kind" eatery that you should not miss while in Charlotte.
