Stopped here after going to the NY Botanical gardens. Small restaurant but worth the trip. Food was great, service fantastic and reasonable prices. Had the shrimp and pasta. Huge and a lot. Sauces didn't over power the food. Parking tough but go to the end of Arthur Ave.

Stopped in for dinner due to our favorite restaurant being closed for vacation. Portions are small and quality is average for the area. Make sure you are specific on your order. They will bring everything you mention. Not nice but hey what the heck you'll eat it anyway. Diner portions are also small so forget sharing or even wanting to... More

Going to the Yankee game? If they win - this place is like the icing on the cake. If they lose (and they lose a lot) this is the perfect place to "eat your sorrows." From the fantastic clams to the specials to the double espresso & desert, you are going to love this place. And the service was super.

Had a late lunch/early dinner after spending the day at the New York Botanical Gardens. Small place with indoor and outdoor seating. Entrees were very good, appetizers were excellent. Very enjoyable afternoon.

Great atmosphere, great service, great quality of food and great tasting food. I was there for my birthday celebration with my family. The atmosphere inside is small but quaint and plenty of room at each table. The service was especially good by the entire wait staff being attentive to our every needs. We ordered the special mussels dish with great... More

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
