We went with a group and had the private room for dining. Food and the service were very good, highly recommend the garlic knots if you love garlic. Pasta was great and the pizza was surprisingly good. Everyone was very happy with their entrees and drinks. Definitely would come back.

We enjoyed the house special pizza. It was pretty good. The service was excellent. Too bad we didn't have room to try dessert. They looked great.

This restaurant is nothing fancy, could use some updating - but we were here for the food, the rest didn't matter! The pizza was great and I had the veal pizzaiola which I really enjoyed and the prices were very fair. Tried to replicate the sauce at home but think I shall leave it to the experts! We had recommendations... More

Seafood Pizza, Spinach Manicotti, Tiramisu, and Chianti. Great food, Great Place, and you should go. After 27 years in business, Gennaro"s is still making their own sauce and cooking up great Italian food. This place is still on e of the best of several Italian restaurants that produce the real thing. Just down the street from the famous Don Cesar... More

We come here every time we're in town. Their pizza is seriously amazing. Reminds of Montreal style pizza, super light crust, it's all about the toppings. Never been inside or tried anything else, don't need to, the pizza is just so awesome.

I'm Italian and i loved the food here. I had linguine marinara. I know--boring but it was great. My hubby had veal parm and it was excellent. The people are super friendly too. Highly recommend. It's small but packs a big punch. Homemade everything. Including the yummy cannoli's.

Best spaghetti bolognese in St Pete! Great garlic bread too. Service is great, food is great, doesn't get any better then this. I like it that it's been family owned since it opened. We live in STB and go there to eat often. Save room for desert too!

I just love their sautéed spinach. It's full of garlic and so tasty with pizza or garlic bread. Their pizza is also delicious. My husband got calamari sautéed in red sauce and thought it was very good. The staff their is very nice too

We came upon this restaurant by mistake and were we ever glad that we did. The Italian food was out of this world. We had a pasta dish and a small pizza . .not to mention the cheezy bread and dessert. All were absolutely delicious. I am sure the place is busier in prime season - but for us it... More
