I have been going there since I was 14 years old and I am 74. The atmosphere hasn't changed nor has the décor...boxing gloves, old signs....your typical old-time tavern. They serve anything from hamburgers to Italian but their seafood is the absolute best. They have...More

Visiting Geno’s is like stepping into Italy with the beautiful patio and cozy, inviting ambiance. The food is perfection and the people are just as wonderful. Try the eggplant parmesan and side salad with olive salad!

Nice servers, great food. I love the Sinatra music playing in the restaurant. I am already planning a couple of trips back when it is cooler so I can sit on the patio. The service at lunch is very efficient.

This place is fantastic. Wonderful food, servers, hostess and atmosphere. You simply could not ask for a nicer place. Patio, courtyard or inside (we highly recommend the patio) you can hear the Rat Pack and enjoy the time. Fabulous.
