We have eaten at many of the restaurants on Arthur Avenue...this by far is our favorite!! It was a beautiful and were able to eat outside. We had family visiting from Charlotte, NC who always said that it is difficult to find really good Italian food there. So what better place to bring them than to the Bronx?! We ordered... More

I have been eating here for about five years. It has never disappointed. I think it is getting better and better. The waiter, Daniele, who has been there there the past several times is charming and knowledgeable. The food is the best Italian I've had outside of Italy. In fact, their mozzarella and ricotta are fresh from Italy! I plan... More

We wandered into this restaurant for an early Sunday lunch. The food was delicious and truly reminiscent of our trip to the Amalfi Coast two years ago. Best grilled octopus we have had since then. Everything we ordered was off the specials menu, and all of it was excellent. Highly recommend the buffalo mozzarella, just arrived from Sorrento! Service was... More

At last, we've found a really great restaurant on Arthur Avenue. We've tried so many and found them to be touristy with terrible food. But San Gennaro is a tiny place with a small bar and absolutely delicious cooking. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and everyone in the place was speaking Italian. We started with a good antipasto... More

We had a great meal here tonight. Service was attentive, friendly and invited experimentation. The menu supported the Italian classics, but went further to focus on tasty specialties we have not seen before. We enjoyed the Sole Oreganto, penne alla vodka. The veal in Gorgonzola & walnut sauce was so good that I broke my diet and used the bread... More

We had lunch today just in time before the rush. Our waiter was more than friendly & gracious. Every dish was spectacular. Fresh buffalo mozzarella, luscious gnudi, delicious homemade fettuccini with seafood. It was a great find, can't wait to return.
