This is the second time we have eaten here and enjoyed it both times. The food is really good and served family style. The portions are more than ample and the food quality is superior. The wait staff both times made us feel right at home and were most accommodating and truly friendly. I believe that if you want better... More

We eat here regularly, and are never disapointed! Large portions of fresh made itailian specialties, and pizza. They also have an in house bakery for your sweeet tooth. The same waitstaff has been there for years, and are attentive and efficient.

This place is unbelievable on both quality and taste of food and service. Highly recommend getting there early , very busy place and checking their hours of operation, open /close times are a bit limited. Parking is not so good but can park across the street at bank lot.

Caprese was chopped tomatoes and mozzarella mixed in romaine lettuce, was expecting just tomatoes and cheese based on description on menu, so that was first disappointment. Chicken marsala had no flavor, very bland and... More

Gennaro's Eatery has a great marinara sauce that the chef uses for his pasta dishes and pizza. Cozy dinning room and friendly staff.

We are Italian and we just folllow trip advisor to find a good place, close to our hotel, where to have dinner. We hadn't the chance to taste nothing that was even similar to our lovely Italian food. And, more than this, it was really hard to digest especially the seafood with cheese (besides, never seen cheese on mussels in... More

We get to Gennaro's every now and then for some decent quality fare at reasonable prices. This is a great "go to" place when you are hungry and craving some quality Italian favorites. The menu offers something for everyone... Check it out... :0)

Excellent food and service. Portions are huge and usually take what I can't finish home. Desserts are unbelievable if you have any room left after the meal
