Nice local hang...

Owner, Gerry, is always hard at work. Pizzas are amazing, as is the veal parm! Parking can be a challenge but worth the hassle.

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...

Today was my third visit to Gennaro's. I'd been twice with two good friends and the service was amazing. I was bragging about the place today as I drove my niece in. As we walked in Gerry himself greeted us and wished us bon appetit. Sadly, our server ruined the whole feel of the place for me. Either she'd had... More

I have been going to Gennaro's since it opened as a small bistro with about 6 tables. Gerry is an excellent cook and an even better baker. He offers great quality, large portions and a friendly atmosphere. Service is warm and friendly and he now has beer and wine.

looking for Italian food in Quincy, wow what a great place. Monday's only open from 11-3, so glad to make the trip. Excellent favors, value and service. I would make the trip back just to try the dinner plates, quantity vs. the quantity of food was great for lunch plates, today. Great to go desserts also, make sure you look... More

The food is delicious. The waitstaff has been there for years, so clearly they're doing something right! Priced right and always filling. Never left without leftovers! We particularly like going in for lunch as they offer two portion sizes. We love their desserts, too. We enjoyed it there so much that we have rented the restaurant for private parties twice...

I've had eveything on the menu at one time or another and its all good but I really enjoy the sandwiches. From the absolutely heaping delicious Chicken or Veal Palmisan to the always satisfying "North Ender" a sandwich filled with the freshest authentic Italian cold cuts . You can always depend on Gennaros for quality product and service.

Well, I took my friend to lunch here because I heard about it from another friend. I'm not really a fan of Italian food (please don't hate me), but Gerry's place changed my mind. It was such a nice testimonial when we asked to meet him that we were told he would be out momentarily because he was helping the... More

My daughter and husband had their wedding reception for 45 at Gennerros. The cake and all the food was made that morning and all perfectly fresh and delicious. Portions are beyond generous and all guests left in awe of how excellent the food was. And the staff are so nice and the service was fantastic. I love this place! You... More
