I too am going through a breakup as Angela P. This is a hard review for me to write as I have been a loyal patron for 10 years. Over the years the food has been generally good - I have especially like the chicken parm with generous side of penne. The main complaint I had in the past is... More

Gencarelli's has been our favorite take out spot for the past three years but we are now going through a break-up. Service has went drastically down hill in the past few months. First, we received a pizza that took over an hour to get to us. When we took it from the delivery man he literally flew from our porch.... More

Great local place for good food! Great location on Route 46 in Pine Brook. Close to Wayne, Parsippany and East Hanover. Reasonable prices. Nicely decorated dining area.

We went here for lunch (on a Living Social discount). The restaurant could use a little spruce-up and some new menus (they stuck together), but... the menu was extensive and the portions are gargantuan. There had to be two pounds of pasta in our penne with eggplant and mozzarella dish, and the chicken parmagiano with vodka sauce was a bit... More

We had a coupon so decided to try this little restaurant. We chose the Buffalo Calamari. Not at all what I expected. It had red onions & chopped tomatoes on top & the sauce was actually sweet not spicy at all. I had the Shrimp Scampi as my entree. The shrimp still had the tails on (one of my pet... More

Shrimp Fra Diavlo w/linguini has the perfect bite to it. Will absolutely order it again. Meatball hero is what you would expect and more. Absolutely delicious.

Having lived only 10 mins away from Gencarelli's all my life, my first visit was tonight and was only because I received a gift certificate to Gencarelli's from a friend. First step was reading the yelp reviews which honestly aren't that great.....second step was arriving at the location and talking myself and my DH into actually stepping inside. But don't... More

Have been going there for over 17 years, when the parents were running the business and the place was much smaller. Now the new generation are running the place after expanding it. Love the food, love the pizza, love the folks over there. Very friendly, nice atmosphere but prices going way high.
