I live around the corner from Gennaro so it's like my second dining room. Having dinner there is like visiting Italy with the chef-owner from the island of Pantelleria, near Sicily. While the service staff is not Italian (except for the chef's nephew who sometimes acts as maître d), Gennaro has taught the kitchen well and he is often present... More

I visited this restaurant 11 months ago while in NY for work. I had the beet ravioli with a light lemon sauce & I've been thinking about it ever since. If I were a celebrity chef on "The Best Think I Ever Ate" on the Food Network, this would be the dish I would talk about. I sat at the... More

The food here is really, really delicious. The kale salad, the sausage appetizer, the barrata, the pastas, the fish, the meat, the focciacia is all wonderful. And they have a bartender most nights that really knows wine so that you can taste a wine before you order it with knowledgable recommendations from the bartender, which only increases the pleasure of...

Nothing more nor less. The food is tasty but it's a Little but expensive. The wine was great though. You must try it if you are nearby, but it doesnt worth a visit if you're notre.

When doing research for our holiday to NYC this restaurant came up often in the forum. We were looking for somewhere to eat on our last evening and as it was easy to access on the subway we decided to give Gennaro's a try. We were glad we did. The place was thriving on a Friday evening and we were... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
