Relaxing atmosphere, good food.

A nice place to eat if you want comfortable and clean. Nice staff and the pizza was top notch. Tourists or locals, this is a must try.

Relatively new to Prescott and our first time to Genovese's, but we will definitely be back. The waiter was excellent very knowledgeable about the menu and had some excellent comments. The decor is definitely what you would call "family" style, but I would probably not want to be there when it is very busy, not a lot of room in... More

Bistro atmosphere, service beyond good, food was the best Italian I've ever eaten. It tasted like everything was freshly prepared, light, well balanced sauces in both the spaghetti and meatballs, and the vegetarian lasagna. It was almost full at 5:15pm. I will go again!

We love Italian food and being new to the area are still experimenting with the culinary "delights" of Prescott. We found Genovese's to be a delight. Many previous raters have complained about the service but we found it genuinely friendly and fairly prompt in meeting our needs. But it's the food that counts. It's a fairly broad menu and contains... More

Even on a super busy Christmas evening, this place shines. Serves lots more than pizza. Family run restaurant with obvious pride and a warmth missing from the everyday chain joint.Right downtown surrounded by other eateries.Kids welcomed with mids menu. Stands out from the scores of burger joints. Shudda tried the tiramisu!

I really wanted to like this restaurant more than I did. Two people we met in town, a shopkeeper and a taxi driver, highly recommended this as one of the very best in town. We arrived about 7pm, which apparently this time of year is at the end of the dinner rush. We were seated quickly, as soon as a... More

We were fortunate to find open tables just before 5 pm on a Friday, so we ducked in to see what all of the fuss was about. We ordered the Chicken & Veal Marsala entrees and were treated to some of the finest Italian food we'd ever been served! The restaurant was packed as special Acker's Music Events were taking...

If you are in Prescott and you love authentic Italian cuisine, you must try Genovese's. It has the feel and atmosphere of a true family run Italian restaurant. The food was superior. I had Veal Parmigiana for $20.95 and it was delicious. It is also refreshing to try a restaurant that offers real service in a no rush atmosphere and... More

Good points - Still a charming place, good service and a Caesar salad that has to be made from scratch, which is a rare find these days. But the calamari steak was not the same. Perhaps they have a new supplier? The taste was still good, with capers and sauce.

When we saw the veal was from Provini, a source of excellent veal in Wisconsin, we opted for veal entrees, marsala and piccata. The veal was, indeed, excellent; however, it was smothered in a creamy sauce and an abundance of mushrooms which totally overwhelmed any flavors from the marsala or capers -- quite a disappointment. The bruschetta and spumoni were... More
