Our Story

Lena’s Italian Kitchen is a new Quick Service Restaurant, serving quality Italian food. Our menu consists of made-to-order Italian classics, cooked with only the finest ingredients. Passionately prepared and packaged, Lena’s Italian Kitchen guarantees a restaurant-quality meal wherever you are. From our store to your door, orders can conveniently be picked up or delivered.

Established in NYC in 2016, Lena’s Italian Kitchen might seem like a trendy new start-up, however, you probably know more than you think about the quality and flavor of our food. Lena’s Italian Kitchen is the newest brand from the family that has brought you Gino’s Pizzerias & Gino’s Italian Ices. Founded by Louis “Gino” Branchinelli over 50 years ago, both Gino’s Pizzerias & Gino’s Italian Ices have become household names.

Before test kitchens or focus groups, Gino’s recipes were tried and proven at home in the kitchen. He and his loving wife Lena worked side by side to prepare family favorites. In their house, nobody could wait to hear the words “Set the table, it’s time to eat!”

Order now from Lena’s, by phone or online, and allow us to prepare your favorite.

It’s time to eat!
