We had a terrible experience at a restaurant down the street and were left not satisfied, when David greeted us on the street and started chatting with us and instantly we regretted not coming for dinner, so we decided to go in for dessert and coffee and it was absolutely phenomenal! We each got a dessert, tiramisu, a conoli, chocolate... More

Been to NYC several times and when in Little Italy, we always eat at Da Gennaro. It has never let us down for a solid quality Italian meal. The garlic infused olive oil and bread to start is amazing. We've tried different meals each time. The specials can be superb although pricey ($35). The patio is great but indoor seating... More

Went for italian food in Little Italy and was captured by a waitor to this restaurant. The food was adequate, but no more, and the environment was fairly OK. The only good thing was the price that was absolutely reasonable.

Stopped in for an early dinner, and we were not disappointed. While I do not consider myself to be a connoisseur of fine Italian food, I know what tastes good to me, and I was very pleased with my meal. I had one of the chef's specials: shrimp and cheese ravioli....and I thought it was wonderful. My friend had the... More

We happened upon Da Gennaro while strolling down Mulberry looking for a spot with the right ambience. The outdoor environs afforded us the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful late afternoon weather as well as a tasty pizza and cold beer. It was a very pleasant experience.

We were looking for a restaurant that served pizza for the 12-year old in our group and this restaurant was great for all purposes. The outside seating was great, watching the foot traffic on the street was interesting. There was a problem with our order in the kitchen, but the waiter was very nice and bought our dessert for the... More

I am amazed at some of the reviews I have read since visiting this restaurant, the staff are very pleasant until you are inside and then.... It's just your buck they are after. The food is some of the worst Italian food I have ever tasted and to make matters worse they don't care. They just churn it out, I... More

A trip to NYC is not complete without a meal at Da Gennaro. We have eaten here many times, and have always had a wonderful time. The food is outstanding, service is excellent, and the prices are quite reasonable. I highly recommend a visit.
