Carming little place

We had the calamari steak, it was amazing! This is a very quaint little restaurant. I believe the staff were attentive, and courteous. We will definitely be back.

We like this well-located downtown place and have eaten here several times for lunch. The prices are reasonable, service good, and the food is above average but not as exceptional as they advertise in the window. (When I see a Sysco supply truck on the dock it tends to set my expectations lower).

Called Saturday morning before they were open to try and get a res for that night. Their outgoing voicemail message said, "if you have any questions, leave a message and we'll call you right back." I did, and they didn't. So I called again late that afternoon, Johnny picked up this time, and told me they don't take reservations. I... More

this restaurant is one of those small gems in what used to be a small town but now is a tourist mecca. anyway, the ambience is small and intimate with a very friendly, attentive wait staff, with the owners working. while the meals are not expensive in the great scheme of things, they are almost half price before 5:30! the...

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Reading Trip Advisor recommendations, we went before 5.30 and had a wonderful meal, in pleasant surroundings, from the early bird menu (which was the entire menu !!). The service was excellent and very friendly. I particularly enjoyed the baked stuffed shells.

We found Genovese's to have decent wine, delicious food, a nice atmosphere, and friendly wait staff. We started with a bottle of the DiVinci Chianti and dinner salads. We ordered the Baked Ziti Lombardi for the entree. Everything was very good! We finished with an excellent cappuccino. A very enjoyable dinner at a reasonable price. We will definitely return to...

Last year I rated this restaurant quite highly. Wow, what a difference 9 months makes. This year while my food was good (sausage and peppers) but they missed the mark preparing my wife's dinner. She ordered the calamari steak. She ordered it with light butter and sauce. Instead it was drowning in oil and butter. More disappointing was they did... More

Arrived for the early bird special (before 5:30pm). Almost the full menu was available: had a hard time choosing. My wife rarely eats bread, but asked for seconds. Seemed like many locals were dining; few tourists. Advertises many "best of" awards: and they lived up to the hype.
