Went there for a nice romantic dinner with my wife and ended up being ignored for 25 minutes while watching the waiters bustle by and randomly bump into the table we were sitting at. Sitting at a long table with another family of six is not my idea of a romantic dinner either. It's been a couple of years since... More

Just like an Italian restaurant in Rome, Genovese's has an excellent house wine and offers vintage Italian dishes. Very intimate for two.

We tucked into Genovese's for lunch one day with the family. We weren't expecting anything fancy, which it isn't. It's a good family style Italian restaurant. We all had sandwiches and salads. The sandwiches were awesome! Great red sauce, fixings, rolls, etc. I had the eggplant parm sandwich and I loved it. For a change of pace in Prescott, I... More

We went to dinner here for the first time. It is conveniently located to downtown Prescott and after dinner we were able to walk over and see the Christmas lights. The menu had many choices. The food was hot and okay. We might visit it again but it's not our first Italian choice.

This is a DEFINITE MUST if you are in Prescott!!! We traveled back here from Lake Havasu City because I was craving the Calamari Steak (and Kat and Jimmy's welcoming nature of course!) The service here is truly AMAZING, and the food is addicting! I don't know what else to say, except......you snooze, YOU LOSE! Mmmmmmmmmmmm Kent and Polly (Lifetime... More

Genovese offers solid Southern Italian dishes from an extensive menu--a real boon to a town that's otherwise short of good ethnic restaurants. It's right on Gurley Street, very near Whiskey Row. The room is nicely decorated (although a bit noisy at peak times). My Veal Pizzaiola was nicely prepared, a generous portion with a side of pasta that had a... More

Located a 1/2 block from Wiskey Row, it's well worth your effort to find Genovese's. It's not hard to find on the main drag of Gurley St. We found this little place by accident and it was a great find. We ate dinner at a highly recommended Italian restaurant the night before and it was a disappointment. We had lunch... More

Excellent food and drink, great service, although at the pricey end of Italian restaurants in area. But, you get what you pay for.
