An absolute terrible experience and I wouldn't recommend anyone to dine at this establishment. I booked a table for 2, around a month in advance. Upon arriving at the restaurant, we were seated in a tight squeeze between two large parties. Across from us was a more spacious table for 2, asked to be reseated there but this was not... More

This was by far my favourite restaurant in Southgate, great food, lovely atmosphere and lighting and well priced with good portion size. However our experience on Valentines Day this year was appalling. Firstly we were not advised even when I booked a month in advance that it was going to be a set menu, mosty of which we did not...

First ever visit to Genco's in Southgate last Saturday. As soon as you walk in there is a great atmosphere. The staff are very welcoming and smile all the time, service is exceptional. Cannot fault the food, absolutely tasty and delicious. Portions sizes are not small either. Very reasonably priced for an Italian restaurant. Those who don't go to Ristorante... More

I just wanted to echo what everyone else has said on here... It's a great local gem and to be honest I really wasn't expecting so much when I stumbled across it with a girlfriend on a cold, rainy Tuesday night. The waitress that served us was very friendly, we got lovely warm Italian bread whilst we decided what we... More

I live in Southgate and have been to Genco six or seven times. Each and every visit has been excellent. The atmosphere is friendly and homely. The food is rich in taste and plentiful. The prices are very reasonable too. For me Genco is the best restaurant in Southgate and one I will continue to go back to!

I liked it. They had excellent service the two times I went there and I really liked the food too. In terms of places to eat in Southgate, it's up there :)

I used to live in Southgate and so have been to eat at Genco's a couple of times when back visiting friends. I went last weekend for the 3rd time and yet again, the food was fantastic and the service was very friendly. Upon being seated, we were approached by one of the owners who seemingly recognised us from previous... More

Three of us had a mid day meal here from the very reasonably priced set lunch menu. The food was very well cooked and presented. Staff were very amiable and helpful. I'm not surprised that it can get packed in the evening!
