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!

Lovely, relaxed service and good hearty food with a great view of the coast and the church yard. One of the best aperol spritz's we had in the area!

We ate here twice during our week long family stay in Praiano on the Amalfi coast. Our landlord recommended it and it met expectations. It was great pizzeria style restaurant with affordable food that still offers pasta and seafood dishes. The pizzas were all fresh and delicious. The pasta stratiatielli with seafood was excellent. Someone in our party ordered this... More

Lovely trattoria with a beautiful view:) the adjacent church's yard adds to the quaint charm of the whole place. The homemade pasta with seafood is a must. The pizza is very good too. The staff is okay, not the friendliest, probably because the place was packed. It was a very pleasant experience altogether:)))

We go here at least once every time we are in Praiano. There is no menu, so if you can't handle that you shouldn't go. You're asked "fish or meat?" on arrival and you get three courses based on your choice. I've never had a meal that was not excellent here and the wines recommended with the food are always... More

The view was lovely at sunset and the food was great with large. We ordered the mussels and the bowl was huge, we almost couldn't finish them! Reasonable prices and good service. The location is handy right in the centre of town. The decor could use an update.

We ate here twice because it hit all the marks for a wonderful family dinner. It's a family owned business and you can see how hard they work to make this a wonderful experience for out of towners! The pasta was homemade and cooked to perfection! The seafood was so fresh as it was caught the same day they were... More
