Loved this place. This was the first stop after checking into our hotel. Great view and one of my favorite pizza places visited on my two week trip.

This was a fantastic little find!! I was surprised it wasn't rated higher on TA as the pizza was the best I have tasted in Italy, cooked in a wood oven and with just the right amount of topping! At eight euros it was by far more reasonable than other, higher priced. The service was good and relaxed despite two... More

We tried several restaurants in Praiano and Positano. Trattoria San Gennaro by far surpassed them all. Pizza, Spaghetti Bolanese and Linguini were superb.

We were on a tour and our guide stopped off at this restaurant for lunch. My initial thought was that it looks a little in need of some TLC although the location and view was beautiful. I ordered shrimp and zucchini pasta and was probably the best pasta I ate in my entire Italy trip - absolutely delicious! Portions are... More

Great for a fast lunch! Beautiful views, and food was good. Not blow you out of the water good, but worth a stop! Look at Positano while you eat!

Trattoria San Gennaro is good for a relaxing lunch with a glass (or two) of wine looking out over the sea. The restaurant itself has seen better days but the food was good, servers were friendly and prices were not through the roof. The pasta with seafood was pretty amazing. It was loaded with seafood including a plump, fresh langoustine.... More

The view is nice, but the setting not so. Rock & pebbles, plastic chairs and tables, extremely young staff and not very professionally. We found it expensive for what it offered. We won't return. I don't know if they were restoring the place or what, but we had a much better experience 4 years ago, but we were seated inside... More

Had a lovely Aubergine Parmigiano for lunch today, with the trattoria's own white wine to go, and finished the lunch off with a very tasty espresso doppio, Limoncello on the house. Very priceworthy, and the service was good, so albeit the looks of just another streetside trattoris, Gennaro really managed to surprise us positively!

Thank Stefan A
