I like to review fairly and honestly. Having been to Da Gennaro a number of times this year (and submitted a positive review previously), I'm afraid that last night wasn't really up to scratch. We booked for 6pm and arrived on time to an otherwise empty restaurant - however, before long two large groups began to arrive. Luckily we placed... More

Great classic Italian food with friendly staff. Prices are reasonable and there is a wine choice. By arrangement you can bring your own bottle. Great food cooked and served by members of the Italian family.

I eat at this restaurant regularly and recommend it to other people. The 2 course lunch and early menu is very good value and the food is really good . Staff are always pleasant and accommodating.

We booked to go to this restaurant tonight as a family get together. I clearly stated that we were using the voucher when I booked weeks ago. When we arrived we had an extra guest to our party unexpectedly- we asked if this was ok when we arrived and were met with a very negative reaction by the lady we... More

Staff were lovely and helpful when ordering. Portions are on the large side making them good value for money. The food was good, was a bit disappointed that I couldn't have the seafood risotto as they had run out of squid, but the mushroom risotto was lovely.

I was really exciting to come here as I love italian and I was celebrating with my partner. Starters were average, but my horror was the main course, i had a seafood pasta dish, to start it was overly peppery,however this was the least of my worries. I went to eat a prawn and it literally exploded in my mouth... More

Went on a voucher deal and have to say I enjoyed the meal even if food was hardly on a par with an 'authenticate' Italian. . However this felt more like a cafe than a restaurant and tacky compared to other places, No music or ambience. The owner/managers family in a back part of the restaurant coming in and out.... More

Called in here with a firiend who'd been before. Friendly staff, lovely homely atmosphere. Lots of typically Italian dishes to choose from - I had the ravioli stuffed with mushrooms in a cream sauce and my friend chose the ricotta and spinach cannellioni. Good portions and delicious food. We shared a tiramisu for dessert. Good 2 course menu on offer... More

Went with friends and was ashamed I took them there. Bad service, the staff know NOTHING about Italian food, can't even pronounce it properly. Awful cheap plonk masquerading as good wine. Don't start me on the meal. We all left it and went to a chip shop later. This is not Italian food.
