It was cold and getting late. It was also close proximity to the Marriott courtyard. The wait staff was friendly and the menu was fairly extensive. Alcohol is not served but byob is allowed. Good was good and plentiful. It was also reasonable. A definite must try.

This was a surprising find in a shopping center. The good was very good!! Priced well. Great quality for such a small place tucked away in a shopping center. The meatballs are to die for!!

I eat here often with friends and family. This place is the best for pizza and meals. Gencarelli's gives very generous portions for reasonable prices. The staff at gencarelli's is very good as well. Also, there are many types of speciality pizza which is another great reason to eat here. Gencarelli's will not disappoint!

We have been going to Gencarelli's since it opened. Everyone is very polite and the owner(s) are very friendly. The food is good and they have a good assortment of pizza by the slice. The only thing I would say is when you order take out, the portions are a bit smaller than when you eat in. So eat in... More

Have been going there since just after they opened. Never been disappointed with any meal there either it was lunch or dinner. Always friendly always clean always better. If you want a generous portion of a meal this is the place, I tend to finish about 80% of my food my wife brings home something for the next day. Even... More

I live in North Carolina, but lived in NJ for 56 years. Ive always loved the great italian tastes, only found in the NJ,NY area. Yes I miss them very much. So whenever we come back to NJ, we always stop at Gencarelli's. The friendly owner has the greatest selection of pizza on display in Northern NJ. The crust is... More

There's a pizza joint every half a mile in this part of NJ, and I wasn't expecting anything interesting in a strip mall setting. Pizza preferences differ widely, but we were impressed with the variety, the freshness of the ingredients, and the service. The salad pizza is truly awesome, and the version of spinach and chopped eggplant (moreso than the... More

We were in town from Montréal, Québec, Canada staying in a nearby hotel and one of the locals suggested this spot. We ordered their special house pizza and toasted almond cake -- AMAZING!! The service was very efficient and friendly. You could feel the warmth of the staff and local patrons. Now if only these spots excited in Montréal! Will... More

I only tried the pizza at Gencarelli's. It was good but not great. There are better Pizza Restaurants in the immediate area.
