What's not to like? My husband and I were in St. Pete Beach for his birthday. We decided to check out the Pass- A- Grille area and found Gennaro's. Small, independently owned, mom and pop type Italian restaurant!!! Loved it!!! I cannot express how good the food is, we went back the next day for pizza!! The prices were more... More

I ordered a pizza because I wasn't sure and OMG was it out of this world delicious. I promise to order real Italian food. The owner is from NY and I know the food will be perfectly made. Very clean also.

My husband & I live in the neighborhood & wanted so badly to be excited about this restaurant. Both times we were SO DISSAPOINTED! Not only is the restaurant old, musty and outdated the staff was extremely rude. Like really rude! Total bummer because Pass A Grille is amazing. Gennaro's however isn't. Try Verducci's instead- It's down the road and... More

This place has a great atmosphere with a very friendly staff. We enjoyed a wonderful pizza pilled high with toppings and a delicious order of lasagna. The dress is casual, although some people were a little more dressed up. Its was a little pricey but all in all a good place to have dinner or carry out a pizza and... More

Good: Easily one of the top 3 pizzas I've ever eaten. See my reviews, I'm a tough critic ;) We happened to be in Pass-A-Grille and stopped in our way back to St. Pete Beach. It was one of the best decisions we made on our trip! We ordered the white pizza. The pizza crust is balanced, soft, and a... More

We gave it try while staying in a hotel. We always like non-chain Italian restaurants because they are better in taste and are more authentic. We were told the owner is Italian. But it seems he has a lot to learn. Maybe he can start learning how to cook from Albanian cooks. They do a way better job. Do not... More

Massive really nice pizza's and not too expensive. Perfect for a nice informal night out! 12" pizza (small) was at least 16" so I can only imagine how big the 16" large pizzas are!

We ordered a salad and the chicken cacciatore, with a side of penne and meat sauce. It was excellent. We topped it off with a homemade cannoli. It was all as good as my Sicilian grandma could have made. We will return.

Try the homemade sausage and peppers. Veal piccata fresh pizza This place is a favorite of my Mom and Dad who are locals. I try to come up from Miami at least 8 times a year to visit them and that's always the first place I want to eat at. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!
