Friends, familiar with Gennaro's from some years ago, took us. It's a somewhat old fashioned Italian restaurant, traditionally appointed, but with an up to date menu and full bar. The management & staff were pleasant and accommodating, and the menu choices wide-ranging. We ordered 4 different entrees, all were delicious. All in all, a delightful experience.

Great Italian restaurant for a romantic dinner or gathering of old friends. Why there was not more people I don't know. People from Glendale remember this restaurant when the Chef / Owner was Gennaro. My wife and I liked listening to the Italian Love songs being sung by a little old Italian guitarist. Our entrees were very good and well... More

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
