Description: Gennaro’s Grill & Garden is located in a delightful Old Victorian setting. The cuisine is classic Northern Italian with a Continental flair that includes fresh seafood and vegetarian dishes. All our pastas are homemade, and our breads and desserts are prepared in our kitchen daily. A delightful environment where the food is robust, authentically classic, and alive with fresh taste. Whatever the occasion, Gennaro’s Grill & Garden is the place!

“Best lasagna ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012 via mobile

This was my first visit and the food was so delicious. The owner came to our table and made sure we were happy with what we ordered. The service was great and what a wonderful atmosphere. Love this restaurant and can't wait to return. The price was not bad either.

“Adorable cottage, authentic Italian, exquisite everything !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012 via mobile

Party of seven; made reservations 15 min before arrival. Owner, host & server all welcoming, gracious, & lovely. Food FANTASTIC: authentic, flavorful, imaginative; better than our trip to Italy! Would highly recommend as a destination restaurant in the Central Coast area, great for groups as well as for a romantic, intimate dining experience.

“A classic, small, personal service restaurant - Highly Recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

I had just flown in that afternoon, and I was starving. I used Yelp, on my Iphone and Gennaro’s Grill & Garden came up. I arrived early in the afternoon, 4:40 and was quickly seated by Gennaro. I ordered the Caesar’s Salad with anchovies, I asked for them (delicious). Then I had the soup of the day and then a wonderful, white fish, grilled vegetables on the side, and a cold glass of Sauvignon Blanc. The waiter was polite, attentive, as was Gennaro himself. I’ve been back several times, and each time was well worth the return.
