“Below Average”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

This place stinks. Waited almost 5 minutes at the counter for someone to take my order (the place was empty). Was told slices were ready, but it took another 5 minutes to get them to go. They were cold, greasy, chewy, flavorless and dull. Even my Dr. Pepper was flat.

This might be great food at 3 am when you're drunk on Carson Street, but if you enjoy good food (and service) stay away from Gennaro's. I hate to say it, but you'd probably get better pizza from Sbarro's.

“Good pizza, fast delivery!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

They even brought us plates, napkins and plastic silverware and cups for the 2 liters of pepsi because our hotel suite had none. Pizza was hot and delicious!

“Excellent pizza”
Reviewed November 5, 2011

I grew up in Pennsylvania, and I have learned that the best places for pizza tend to be basic shops with nothing fancy inside. I spotted Gennaro's while driving along Carson Street during a weekend visit here and predicted on sight that I'd find good pizza inside. I was right. The place has a walk-up counter where you can place your order for a wide variety of pizza, pasta, hoagies, and salads. We settled on the Manhattan pizza, with extra pepperoni, cheese, ham, and sausage. We waited for the pie in one of six red-upholstered booths with tables worn from years of use, watching a sports channel on a flat-screen TV. When the pizza arrived, we dug in, and it was outstanding. Our server predicted that we'd have some left over, but we proved her wrong. We waddled away satisfied.
