Garlic Knot Heaven

First off, if you can get a seat inside I would strongly recommend it. We sat outside and the flies were terrible. On the other hand though the food was delicious. The garlic knots are freshly made and taste as good as they smell. You also get about 10 large knots for only $4.50. I had the... read more

We came at a busy time. At the direction of the staff we sat at a dirty table. After about 20 minutes of no attention and watching others who came in after us receive service we left without ordering.

For the first time I was let down by Trip Advisor reviews. We were visiting from out of town and went there for dinner (limited choices in Luray) based on Gennaro's having received 4 of 5 stars. When you walk in the dining room has tables and booths on the left and right sides, no hostess stand or even a... More

Came with the kids for dinner after the Caverns. We were look for something casual. We got there and the first thing we noticed was the pizza delivery cars and carryout window. This should have been our first clue. We got there and inside was full, so we to a table outside. Everything was filthy--tables, chair, patio area...We moved inside... More

Prices are reasonable. The buffalo pizza is a favorite of my son. It's pretty good, though not my favorite. I like the stromboli and and calzone, each of which was prepared well. Service is about average, but the wait staff is friendly. The menu includes a number of pizza variations, pasta: the usual sort of thing for this type of... More

Enjoyed pasta dishes - spaghetti (large meatballs!), cheese ravioli, and baked ziti. The garlic knots are awesome!

After spending the day at Luray Caverns, my boyfriend, brother, sister-in-law, and I wanted some dinner. My SIL found this restaurant on Yelp and said it had good reviews. It wasn't far at all from the caverns and was a nice, local restaurant with good food (their garlic knots were AMAZING) and the service was great. If I'm up that... More

This place has huge portions of good food at a reasonable price. Based on other reviews of Gennaro's, I ordered the garlic knots. They were superb and plentiful. The service is very friendly and quick.

Went here with our family for a late lunch. There were flies EVERYWHERE. Sure a fly or two can get in here or there at even the best restaurants, but they really need some kind of fly trap. And from a few other reviews, I see they had similar encounters. The food wasn't that great. I ordered a pasta dish... More
