We were here with a large party for my nephew's rehearsal dinner. My sister chose Gennaro's based on the recommendation of a family member. The food was excellent - a true Italian feast. The red sauce was some of the best I have ever had at an Italian restaurant. Dessert was a real treat - individual servings of a chocolate... More

We were here with a party of 50+ for my nephew's rehearsal dinner. Granted, my sister had planned the menu, but I was not prepared for the feast that was presented! In keeping with real Italian traditions (recall eating in a legit Italian restaurant, not one catering to tourists), the appetizers keep on coming, ceaselessly and all were terrific. Then... More

From the outside this place looks like something I would never consider to dine at, but because of its reputation I gave it a shot. Inside it looks much better and kinda like a little street cafe I'm Roma. The food was really good and well prepared, especially the pastas were good. Service was very Italian authentic, which in US... More

which makes a difference. The food is always reliable and is fresh. We know that the servers have been there a long time and so this bring your own restaurant on 206 is great to keep costs down

We really loved Gennaros. Impeccable service by everyone who worked with us, and every item we ate was awesome. I personally had pan cooked clams in a red marinara, and my meal was an exceptional slow cooked braised Short Rib with vegetables and mashed potato . The one thing you must keep in mind is they do not have a... More

Wow, we were so impressed with this restaurant. From the moment we walked in, we were treated like family. Our waitress was so passionate about this restaurant it was hard to not fall for it ourselves. We started with an appetizer sampler that included tender, perfectly cooked calamari, a potato cake that was delicious and flavorful, and coconut shrimp that... More

1st time here after hearing about it from a few people. I like BYOB places, keeps the tab down. What a great, helpful and pleasant staff this place had. I'd go back just for the way they treat you. But the food was great too. Our friends both had salmon (not my choice of fish); but it looked great. I... More

We were hoping to have found a new gem in a town where there are already many good restaurants. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre to terrible and the price-tag ridiculous! This is one to be avoided.

Living on the Left Coast we expect to be disappointed by East Coast Italian eateries whose sauces often all taste about the same - like catsup with oregano added. This is not that place! This place is a hidden gem! Food from appetizer through second entree is exceptional. The short ribs are the best we ever had. Service is friendly... More

We have been coming to Gennaro's for many years and the place never disappoints. The food is consistently wonderful. There's not a bad dish on the menu and the service is terrific. If you're in Princeton, NJ this is the place to go. We have introduced many friends to Gennaro's and will continue to do that.
