Best pizza in town!

When I visit my brother in Tierra Verde I try my best to get over to Gennaro's for pizza. Their crust is just right - not too thick and not too thin. The toppings are fresh and perfectly cooked. Just the right amount of tomato sauce. Comfy booths and good wine - perfect pizza place!

The veal Parm is excellent at gennaro's...along with the service! Ask for Erynne! We go there a lot because it's close and we know it's always going to be a good meal.

Fantastic food, drinks and service. We stopped by for lunch based on another review and were so happy we did. Their bread was homemade and fantastic. Best sangria I had ever had and the pizza did not disappoint. Additionally, we split a salad and it was large enough for us both. Owner was on site and he went above and... More

We have been going to Gennaro's for about 20 years. It is a favorite for us locals. The food, especially the pizzas, are superb. Price is very reasonable. The staff is very attentive and friendly.

Been here many times and the food is always great and so is the staff! Pizza is yummy, the Lasagna is the best around, so is the shrimp scampi. The Chef is very creative with specials as well....SO GO THERE!

I reviewed Gennaro's in February of 2012, giving it a 4-star rating at the time. Having now moved into the Tampa Bay area, we visit the restaurant much more frequently. It's time to up Gennaro's rating to 5 stars. My husband and I are pretty darn good cooks (I make great Italian dishes), so when I give a restaurant such... More

Wow!!! Great to have decent food in Pass A Grille! This little Italian place has been open since the 1980s... They have great pizza. Great bread knots with excellent marinara, excellent classic food. It is a peaceful atmosphere and a great place for a casual dinner. Our bellies always leave satisfied from here.

We passed by one evening late and were thrilled by the aroma of garlic and basil. So the next day we came in for lunch. This is reputed to be the best pizza place around, but we found the pizza disappointing: too much sauce, and the sauce was too sweet and not interesting. A "Sicilian manicotti" dish turned out to...

We got take out here on our last night of vacation. My husband ordered the Shrimp Alfredo, I ordered the Shrimp Parmigiana. Both were more than generous portions, more than we could finish in one sitting. Both dishes came with garlic bread. I don't know if it was a mix up, but we received literally two whole loaves of garlic... More

Everything we had was tasty and very high quality, and served in a setting that is relaxed but makes you feel treated like family. Great Gluten free options as well that lose no flavor or quality ...if you weren't told you wouldn't know it's GF. This is an amazing location for a delicious relaxed date night. The staff is excellent!... More
