Have you had a location suggested for dinner, and upon eating there, said MEH...What is wrong here? I'm not sure...average food for a lot of money. Completely uneventful.

I have had many business lunches and dinners at Gennaro's. The food is consistently excellent, the atmosphere is relaxing, and the service is first class.

My friends had a poor experience here with the wine tasting. We were only served Chilean wine which didn't allow for my best friend to taste any Italian wine for her birthday. The service lacked attention for the first 30 minutes or so until the second server arrived. I asked for the wine menu and never received it. I would... More

This is my second review on this place because I just had to give it another try since it was such a fixture in our life for so many years. The result was unfortunately the same - just awful. Anyone with above a 2 Star Rating obviously did not eat here prior to the new owners. It is just simply... More

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure to once again have lunch at this marvelous restaurant in Glendale. The building is charming and the interior decorated in excellent taste. The ambiance is the perfect setting for a quiet interlude highlighted by excellent service and delicious entrees. The tables are nicely spaced so that conversations can be conducted without any background... More

Friends, familiar with Gennaro's from some years ago, took us. It's a somewhat old fashioned Italian restaurant, traditionally appointed, but with an up to date menu and full bar. The management & staff were pleasant and accommodating, and the menu choices wide-ranging. We ordered 4 different entrees, all were delicious. All in all, a delightful experience.

Great Italian restaurant for a romantic dinner or gathering of old friends. Why there was not more people I don't know. People from Glendale remember this restaurant when the Chef / Owner was Gennaro. My wife and I liked listening to the Italian Love songs being sung by a little old Italian guitarist. Our entrees were very good and well... More

Our dinner on a Thursday was very good - the Marsala wine / mushroom sauce was excellent and the portion was ample - the side veggies were tasty and not overlooked. The complimentary bruschetta was a slightly different take with capers and the bread was indeed crispy. Since we were the only three in the restaurant the service was attentive.... More
