Our dinner on a Thursday was very good - the Marsala wine / mushroom sauce was excellent and the portion was ample - the side veggies were tasty and not overlooked. The complimentary bruschetta was a slightly different take with capers and the bread was indeed crispy. Since we were the only three in the restaurant the service was attentive.... More

Oohhh ... It pains me to write this review. My wife and I have been going to Gennaro's since before our first was born (2003) and have always enjoyed the wine list, the food preparation .. but mostly the service - and the friendly faces we would see EVERY time we walked in. I'm SOOO Disappointed to report that EVERYTHING... More

should have seen it coming when we showed up @ 645 and there wasnt a single person eating. Food was bland, service was poor (too slow for being the only group in the place). I'd suggest going elsewhere...

My girlfriend and I ended up going here on New Years Eve. They were very accommodating even though we did not have a reservation. The service was fantastic. The menu was a scaled down menu for the holiday and had almost all seafood options, which I am not a fan of. However, it was delicious I had the lobster ravioli... More

I have eaten at Gennaro's more than 50 times since moving offices in 2008. Mostly lunch, occasional dinners. The food is excellent; the ambiance warm and comfortable (unique for Glendale); the service attentive. The Chicken Caesar salad is prepared to your liking at the table and is delicious. What sets this restaurant apart is that it works for both business... More

We have eaten at this restaurant countless times but I will never forget our first meal there. The restaurant is fairly small but open and soothing. The staff is courteous but does not hover. Many Italian restaurants are family style but this place is for special occasions. Our meal was long, serene, delightful. However, my clearest memory is of the... More

Three business associates and myself walked here from the Hilton based on recommendation from the valet. Very slow night (Monday) maybe only three other groups where there. Wonderful classical guitarist was playing, which provided a great background music. Not so loud we couldn't have a conversation. Service was slow, so be prepared to have long conversation. I have a feeling... More

This is by far the best Italian dining experience in Glendale. My girlfriend has been several times, but we ate there this past week for my first time and I was more than impressed! The ambiance of Gennaro's takes you back to a restaurant setting that belongs in Goodfellows... low light, cozy, family-style Italian-white-tablecloth seating and decor abound. The place... More

Food is average at best, service is terrible. Our waiter not customer friendly, viewed every request like a chore.
