Every time I come home to Monroe - West Monroe, one of the very first stops we make is to Geno's Italian Restaurant. Cannot be more Italian than Phyllis Jean and her brother. aggettivo delizioso, only way to describe the food. the service is second to none. Hope it can stay open forever. We Love it, we love it.

This is my favorite italian food in the world. (And I mean it.) A trip to Monroe would not be complete without a meal at Genos. Geno himself is long gone but his children Phylis and Frank have done a wonderful job for over 2 decades. Sit outside if the weather permits. Lasagna recipe is a family secret and is... More

I always get the homemade lasagna, but they have so many other wonderful Italian dishes as well. You won't find a more tasty Italian meal. Everything is homemade and this family restaurant still fixes it fresh from scratch each day. You won't want to miss this quaint little restaurant!

Felt like I was back in Italy. The food was authentic. Homemade Italian Sausage was great. You can see why they are the oldest Italian Restaurant in Monroe.

I took my wife there for Valentine's Day and was pretty impressed. The patio is a nice place for dining. The food is pretty good too, and not too expensive.
