Very nice place to enjoy good food, and wine.

The most amazing calamari steak! Also they have grate early bird specials, manicotti, stuffed shells, pastas....... If you like more of the old Sicilian flavor you need to try this place!

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.

Great place for pasta or pizza. My husband and I have eaten there for quite a few years and it is always good.

Pros: they offer a wide selection of menu options on the "early bird" menu (3 - 5:30 PM). Food is hot and fresh. Adequate wine list. Five-bean soup is hearty and well-seasoned as is the minestrone. Cons: the noise level is high. The marinara sauce is not particularly flavorful. Service is unprofessional. Wine glasses are too small to swirl the... More

Our anniversary is on December 31st. so we decided to go to Prescott Az. for New Years Eve. We were lucky to get a reservation on short notice. The restaurant was as you would expect on New Years Eve very busy. We had to wait approx. 20 minutes for our table to be ready, not bad considering. The wait staff... More

Our last night in Prescott we chose this small family owned restaurant downtown. From the moment we walked in, we were met with friendly, accommodating service. The Calamari steak was out of this world. Veal Sherry & Veal Picata scrumptious! Do not leave until you try their Tiramisu! The best I have ever had. Kudo's to our waiter J.R. ~... 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.

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 best of the lot.

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.
