From the start, this place was special! When you walk into a restaurant and ask someone who is just leaving how the food was, and they respond with groans of sheer delight, you know you're walking into the right place. The appearance and ambiance matched the impression I was just given. It wasn't long after being seated that we were served the most delicious bread and olive oil with herbs (Italian butter) that one could imagine. We love Italian, so we're not as easily impressed; however, we were never disappointed during our visit.
The Insalata Italiano salad was huge, easily enough for two and absolutely delicious. Compared to an absolutely superb Italian salad I had in Europe, this was by far the best. The Napoli pizza was to die for. The crust was firm and yet melted in your mouth while the ingredients left your taste buds dazzled. We can't say enough of our experience. It was so good that we have one more night in Canyon Lake, and we've already made reservations at Gennaro's.
