If you like Italian food look no further. Il Genio's has an incredible waitstaff, delicious food, and their new remodeling is beautiful. They genuinely make you feel special when you dine.

After 'il piccolo Genio' this should be your second choice. If you are looking for a proper pizzeria where you can sit with friends or family, look no further.
