“Not a schnitzel in sight!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

Thank goodness for this Italian restaurant as a respite from schnitzels and goulash! A rocket and parmesan salad was just what it ought to be - no dressing, just plain with a few nice tomatoes (red, white and green!) - and the asparagus and crayfish risotto was creamy and tasty. Wine a touch pricey, but good and the service was fine (not excellent, so a star dropped here). If you want a good Italian meal in the centre of town,I would recommend it. Oh! and the espresso was good as well.

“Excellent Thin crust Pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

Restaurante da Gennaro is located on Braunerstrasse, a pedestrian street leading off the Graben at the exact spot of the Pestsäule (plague column). As many others we stumbled here looking for something out of the way and affordable. We started with minestrone soup which was full of fresh ingredients perfect for a cold day in December. Then split a pizza “Diavolo”, with a bottle of Italian red. Pizza was cooked perfectly thin and supple with large red and green hot peppers. Drizzled some oil and it was perfect. A great meal with excellent service!

“Best food at affordable price just steps from the St. Stephens cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011 via mobile

This is the place to go if you want good Italian food at affordable prices in the city center. This place has the friendliest staff you will find around the city of Vienna. Just footsteps away from the Opera, Hofburg and St. Stephens cathedral. And, they are quick too!

“Very good food and good service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2010

We stumbled into da Gennaro about 14:30 on 24 December and they were happy to serve us. Gemussesuppe und Spaghetti for her and Gemussesuppe and Lasagne for me with esppresso and greme brule with berries und ice. Service was excellent at 50 euros a good value. Enough room and a few blocks off the Graben in the Innerstadt.

“delicious salads & pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2008

We highly recommend this restaurant to those seeking a delicious salad & pasta. Their fresh pizza dough breadsticks with garlic are mouthwatering. We sat at an outside table and enjoyed the sunny weather. We split a salad and pasta dish. Our waitress offered to bring our meal already split into two serving dishes. The pasta with spicy tomato sauce was very tasty. Their prices are very affordable and their service is quick and friendly.
