Gennaro's is the place to eat in the Canyon Lake/Startzville/Smithson Valley/Bulverde area. The food is exceptional and the prices are extremely reasonable. The staff is always friendly and the atmosphere is as great for business lunches as it is for family gatherings or a nice romantic night out.

This place never disappoints. Excellent food, great service. It is always packed especially on weekends so it is advisable to book a reservation before going. My husband and I love the calamari fritti. It is cooked perfectly, it just melts in your mouth. The linguine di mare is my favorite! If you love Italian food, this is the place for... More

My husband and I & another couple thoroughly enjoyed our meal when we ate here last month. We each got something different, & we were all pleased with our selections. The portions were more than generous, but the prices were quite reasonable.
