I visited Genovese's for the first time this week. We went around 6:00pm and there was a wait at the door. Many people were picking up takeout, so that may be the way to go. However, we were able to get a table within 10 minutes. The staff were very friendly and took our orders quickly, even though they were very busy.
There was a nice selection of salads, pizzas, and typical Italian fare. The dough is made onsite daily, and we watched as one of the bakers came out to toss dough in the air- very fun to watch. We ordered the bruschetta, about 6 toasted (thin) bread portions with chopped onion, tomato, basil, garlic and balsamic vinegar. Very tasty. We also ordered a small Venetian pizza (artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes, cheese, basil, sauce) which was cut into 6 pieces. Perfect for sharing, a medium would have been too large, but great for leftovers.
Service was friendly and faster than I expected with a full restaurant. I would recommend visiting Genovese's on your next visit to Ormond/Daytona Beach.
