Very fun!

Very friendly staff and great pizza! We stayed right next door at the Best Western so this was easy to get to.

I'm from New England, so I have fairly high expectations for Italian food. The food here is good, but their pizza is slightly undercooked, with the dough still doughy. A great place for the family, or for anyone looking to eat fairly quickly and to not spend a ton of money.

Really loved this Italian food. Lots of it and very authentic and good. The pizza dough rolls were homemade and hot. Delicious!. The Italian dinner dishes were excellent. I had chicken marsala and my husband had spaghetti and meatballs. Neither one of could finish there was so much food. You may not be able to tell how good it is... More

Learn from our mistakes and go to Gennaro ' s first! We visited Luray from out of town and were searching for a place to eat at supper time on a Sunday. Several places whose websites said they would be open were not. I'll spare you the whole saga, but this place had delicious food, friendly staff, large portions and... More

Don't allow the outside to fool you. The food was delicious. My husband said that the lasagna with marinara sauce was quite good. I enjoyed the ravioli with vodka sauce. The server apologized for not being more perky. She had some dental work done. I could empathize as I recently had dental surgery. We thought that, under the circumstances, she... More

Great little Italian restaurant. Appeared to be a mom and pop shop with great hand made food. No big corporate get you in and out. Will definatly be back for the next trip!

Traditionally prepared, delicious cuisine at family prices and huge portions. The waitress brought out a full platter of pepperoni pinwheels on the house. The lemon chicken with spinach with linguine was excellent as well as the eggplant parmigiana which had perhaps one of the best tomato sauces experienced in an Italian restaurant.

It was four stars for home made but 3 stars in general. Better than dominoes but not as good as papas, jets, tonys, or rockys. I stopped by just passing through after a visit to the cavern. The staff was friendly. The place was pretty busy so i assume it is a local favorite. Vinnies in savannah is still the... More

Quaint little Italian place in a small quaint town. I had the linguine with clams which was decent. It is decently priced but I think it is a little pricey for what you get. Overall, just a normal Italian restaurant, nothing special.
