“Cockroach on the ceiling over our table and no comment from mgmt!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012 via mobile

They came with a broom to go after it and it disappeared under the moulding. No comment, no "Sorry ", no discount ...nothing. manicotti, pasta, ok. Seared tuna strange text. Halibut great. Bread pudding bad. French silk pie pretty good. Won't be back, not inexpensive and not great.

“15 years later...still good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

My wife and I went our first date to Genusa's about 15 years ago. Nice romantic restaurant, but still family friendly. We were back in town recently and thought we'd stop by. Being a weeknight, it wasn't that crowded, and they may have been low on servers, but the food and wine was still great. So glad we went back. Refreshing to get away from the chain Italian restaurants.

“Fine place to go”

Choose the house wines and don't bother about the winelist!
Breadpudding for desert! Excellent!

“Lovely cozy place to dine with wonderful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2011

next to the levee of the Ouachita River , right down from Forsythe Park in Monroe ,a little family restaurant. We go often and have our favorites. I isually do something with a red sauce , this time again I had the pasta stuffed with rocotta cheese with red sauce an asked for a little alfredo sauce on the side. Rachel cooks the sauces in the kitchen every morning . My husband had his usual veal ashley which had a sauce of lemon and butter and herbs and capers on top of the veal. Food was good , service was good and we left after eating and being able to visit without any loud music.

“Please, get some new silverware.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2011

I'll be honest, the food is hit or miss, but when it's good, it is excellent. Sometimes the fish is dry, somtimes the chicken is too salty, but the goat cheese salad is always delicious, and more often than not, it is yummy. One of my MAJOR complaints is that this nice restaurant has the cheapest cafeteria-like silverware. It is really comical how cheap it is. I don't get it. All in all, I love Genusas and we go back often. Atmosphere is great!
