Real Itialian Meal

Waiter was very attentive but not over the hill on top of our table. Meal selection was good - Prescott has a number of Italian restaurants - somewhat difficult to rank them each has unique favors - but Genovese's waitstaff is probably the best of all of them. Gnocchi is also (in my opinion) the... read more

The food is very good and it is in the historic downtown Prescott. The only thing was that we were there mid-week and they were closing up as soon as we left at 8:30pm. A lot of businesses close early in Prescott, but we thought this was a bit too early.

The food and service is excellent. The only problem is that the ceilings are high and this makes the place noisy. It is always busy even on week nights. Portions are large and the pricing is reasonable.

This small, Italian restaurant is just off the main square and has very good food and excellent service. It is not as popular as some of the other places in town, but the food is as good or better. It can be a bit loud if there are large crowds in the place, as there is little to dampen noise.

The food here is excellent, especially if you get in by 5:30 for their early bird specials. The service is great--all smiles and very helpful. A place I would go back to!

The most inconsistent I have experienced. One time we go in and the food and service is amazing. The next was in edible. With horrible service. Sorry but I just don't get it? When there on, some of the best Italian every.

The food here is really excellent. I particularly enjoy the seafood, and my best friend swears by the chicken Parmesan. It is worth a visit.

We walked right in and were seated and found that the prices for that time frame (a slow time I am sure) are very reasonable. The food was delicious, the service great. It is just a ½ block off Courthouse Square, a small restaurant with a jolly Italian chef figure standing out front.

We found this place just walking thru down. 5 minute wait. Since it was just the two of us, we got the table in the back corner, no big deal.. We're appetizer hoppers and ordered quite a few. Beats eating a huge meal of one item. The bruschetta was awesome along with the mussels. Garlic bread with marinara was superb.... More

My husband and I are locals; but when we moved here, this was the first place we dined. We've been back a number of times. Always met and served cordially and in a timely fashion, and the Italian fare is to our liking - we've never had a so-so meal here. Although it can fill up it still feels relaxing,... More
