I was brought to Gennaro for a business appreciation dinner. We were 16 guests and I must admit, from when we arrived in this clubhouse with this huge park my experience began. From the entrance you can perceive the typical Italian restaurant feeling. We entered and Gennaro was there, presenting himself and shaking our hands, one by one. The restaurant... More

There I got my best pizza in town. I'm sure also other food is great as they have an Italian chef. Restaurant is typical Italian style. This restaurant is also available in Sherpa's delivery service, so ordered there many times already. Just great food!

Dear Customer, Thank you for your review. For us the pizza is a must - the pizza is from Naples and my name "Gennaro" is a typical napoletano name! We worked very hard to make our pizza special, using only the best ingredients. I hope next time you can try some of our other homemade dishes - I'm sure you... More

I have been eating at Gennaro's for the past four years, and have found that recent changes have made a good experience even better. The menu is now more varied, with some wonderful additions, and the wine list far more impressive. The food has always been excellent, but a new chef and the presence of Gennaro himself makes this restaurant... More

Dear Friends, Thank you. The Tombsweeping holiday and the nice weather brought many of out trusted clients away and actually I do hope they enjoyed their weekend.

Obviously the authenticity is our priority and since... More

The food in Gennaro restaurant is good but the service needs to be improved. Waiters are very slow and they lack of attention in taking dishes and bringing wine.

It is most certainly one of the if not THE best Italian restaurant in Shanghai. Pros: Wines selection is very good. They have one of the best Margherita pizzas in town. Do get friendly with Roberto (Head Chef) and ask him for his "signature dishes." Great service if you can get a hold of Fabrizio (Maitre d). Unfortunately you have... More

After having tried several Italian restaurants in Shanghai, Gennaro wins the first place for authentic Italian food. We tried several dishes, including pizza, and they were all delicious. However , they do need some improvement in their service and bring more bread to the table, no Italian meal is complete without it!

Went there on a Saturday evening and it was not crowded. Plenty of choices and prices quite reasonable. Atmosphere and decoration are really nice, service I would say average. We had a nice bottle of white wine and all dishes were well prepared. We were surprised not to find any Grappa on the menu, so we went for the Sorbetto... More
