Big portions, consistent quality

This restaurant has become a popular spot because of the food and the owner. The one thing you can count on is large portions. We've never finished a meal, always bring home almost half of our entrees. The breaded chicken is too heavy on the breading for my liking, so I tend to stick with other... read more

Always a great meal---homemade fusilli is a favorite of our family. We try to make it at least a few times a month for lunch. Gerry was trying new pizza recipes when we were there and gave us a huge sample piece. We really hope he decides to put the honey wheat Sicilian crust on the menu! It was phenomenal.... More

Gerry himself is amazing--so generous & accommodating always, His food, unfortunately, does not always live up to that standard. Italy, like the US, has a number of different cuisines. If you are used to foods from the North - then you expect light, fresh seafood & risottos made with butter. If you're from the South, then sea food with spicy... More

We were looking for an Italian caterer and my daughter and her fiancee recommended Gennaro's. Since then they have caterered 2 large family parties (70+ people). Our guests ask us now," is this from Gennaro's? " and when we say "yes" they smile big and dig in! Their meatballs are so delicious. Order more than you think you'll need, everyone... More

I've been visiting Gerry at Gennaro's since it was a small bistro style eatery with a few tables and an open kitchen. The food is consistently great but the service is outstanding. The staff go out of their way to make you feel at home. Gennaro's is still one of the best values for a good honest meal.

We love Gennaro's for pizza, dinner, family gatherings, and catering -- we have done all of the above and never been disappointed. The ingredients are fresh and perfectly cooked. The daily specials are creative. The serves are just awesome.

Family style restaurant with very large portions. Very casual, friendly waitstaff, pretty hectic as it is always busy! Can depend on a good meal.

You can't beat the quality of food you get and for the price. I lived in quincy for years and this was one of my favorite spots. Family owned and run. Great service by great people.

When our party of 15 arrived at Gennaro's early Saturday evening I was at first disapointed to find that they do not hold seats for groups at a pre-booked time of which everybody in our group arrived on time,this is unlike many other local restaurants who do accomodate in this way for pre-booked goups ,so if you come as a...
