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 service at Kitchen Consigliere was excellent and the menu was creative & complete. I chose Sunday Gravy and it was an excellent combination of wonderful “gravy” and very tasty sausage, ribs, meatball and braciola. It was fabulous. Family members ordered the other tasty dishes and I'll be certain to go back and try more. The restaurant was a little small, but it was certainly comfortable.

Angelo Jenaro Lutz, sometimes referred to by the nickname “Fat Ange”, is a professional chef and former mobster. He has appeared on several cooking programs and owns and operates an Italian-American restaurant in Collingswood, NJ. He is known by the moniker the “Kitchen Consigliere” due to his prior involvement with the Philadelphia mob scene in the 1990s that led to his conviction in 2001 as part of a broad investigation into illegal activities in the tri-state area.

The night before he entered prison, Lutz cooked for his own going-away party. Reporting the event, Fox 29 reporter Jen Frederick referred to Lutz as “the kitchen consigliere.”

After serving nearly seven years in federal prison for racketeering, Lutz was released in 2008. In 2010 he opened a small Mafia-themed restaurant in Collingswood, NJ called The Kitchen Consigliere, serving traditional Italian-American dishes inspired by his grandmother’s cooking. It was very successful, serving 1,600 dinners a month and turning away 80 to 100 potential patrons weekly because of its limited seating. The success of the venue led to plans to expand in 2012. However, when Lutz applied for a conventional loan, he found his past convictions made it extremely difficult and he was turned down by several banks. He turned to private investors, and held a successful Indiegogo campaign, raising over $34,000 for renovations for a larger restaurant three times the size of his first location, with sconces shaped like nine-millimeter handguns and a mural featuring him with famous gangsters such as Don Corleone and Tony Soprano.

I've wanted to try KC for years but could never get a reservation at the right time. We came post-theater in Philadelphia via the PATCO, which makes KC very accessible. The closed tables in the smaller room still offered privacy. Larissa was a wonderful server-very methodical and pleasant. The food was really good and fresh. The mussels appetizer broth was light and tasty. Everything came out steaming hot. Desserts looked fabulous at other tables.Only two negative comments. First, specials should be written down and easily seen with the prices. Larissa was unsure of two entree specials' prices and had to return to the kitchen to ask. Also, veal toppings were great, but the veal itself was just ok. Next time, I will get a fish/seafood dish because we loved the Tilapia Francaise special topped with an abundance of fresh crab meat.
