By far the most delicious Italian food we have ever eaten!! My family and I look so forward to visiting Gennaro's every summer! Every meal is beyond what we expect. The owner is amazing! He shares his passion for cooking like no one we've ever seen! And it shows in every dish! Pass-A-Grille would NOT be the same without Gennaro's!!

We wanted to eat pizza for dinner so we checked out Trip Advisor. We read the reviews & chose Gennaro's. The place looks a little sketchy on the outside, but don't let that stop you! It was absolutely amazing! We had the garlic knots, a salad & 3 small pizzas. The pizza was the best we've ever had! I would... More

In passing the restaurant we noticed the parking lot was always crowded. Decided to go for dinner. What a great decision! The place is small intimate and homey. The service is friendly and accomodating. The portions are large. The prices are good. The garlic bread is delicious. The entrees, all home made, are incredible. Will go back again and again

Everything but the pasta itself...is made to order. ..Service ( Sherie) made us feel right at home. Great suggestions. .The ONLY problem. ..we couldn't eat it all...big servings. A must if you are in the area!

Don't listen to the hype about anywhere else. Let your taste and stomach answer the best Italian. We've been coming to St Pete for 25 years. This place hands down is the very best. Meatballs, clams, veal and pizza you cannot go wrong. It's must

Even though we're regulars in Pass a grille, this was our first visit to Gennaro's. The food is amazing! We have to go back and try their pizza. Everything was freshly made and delicious!

Coming here for years & eager to always bring local & out of town friends to enjoy a truly authentic home made from scratch Italian meal. EVERYHING is delicious. Never had something we or our guests didn't like. They in turn, pass the word a long to their friends. Great little place, superb cook, pleasant and experienced staff. You don't... More

When I'm craving veal, pasta or pizza, Gennaro's is the choice. Service is fast and friendly, the food is always fresh and good. Prices are good. Yes, it's a little run down, a little sketchy, but it's clean. I don't need high end dining when I'm having great food and supporting a family owned place. We had the Garlic Knots... More
