Good food

Got the baked ziti. It was good, but not enough noodles and tons of sauce of cheese. I'd imagine most people would love it. Friendly staff and you could tell they were having a good time.

Outstanding food and service. On a dreary rainy night, this place was packed at dinnertime. The waitperson and kitchen staff were friendly, competent at handling the crowd and making us feel at home. The food was excellent and abundant. We left with big smiles, full stomachs, and leftovers for lunch the next day. What a gem this tiny place is... More

The food wasn't bad but it didn't stand out as anything other than just a basic pizzeria. Pizza was generic and service was so so.

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
