Great find in Quincy

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... read more

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

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

This is a great place. You get a lot of really good food for short money. I always order the tortellini carbonara. I end up taking half of it home. They have great bread with the meals, their meatballs are delicious and their sauce tastes like my Sicilian grandmother use to make. The waitstaff is really friendly. It's just a... More

Gennaro's make THE best italian sub pretty much ever. It's the kind of sub you will crave. I used to live in Quincy but then moved way, way, way out into the burbs; however, I still make the 45 minute trek just for this sub, which is called the North Ender. Aside from the subs, the pasta dishes are incredible,... More

We always enjoy the takeout here, but recently decided to dine in. The food was excellent, portions huge and the service and atmosphere was friendly. From pizza to pasta to fish, you can't go wrong.

We love this place and I proposed to my new bride there! Linda Chris and the rest of the wait staff are pleasant and the best. Food...what more can be said than amazing! Great tasting and great portions. We show up every week for a taste of heaven!
