...that's pretty much what I thought when someone suggested eating Italian food at the lake, of all places. Fortunately, I went. And, I've been back several times and plan to go several times before we have to leave the area in a month (We are RVers).
The restaurant is very nice (new) and quaint. Every staff and wait person has been a pleasure. Oh, and the food is fabulous! I've had their salmon and lemon chicken. My husband has had a few of the chicken dishes and beef dishes. All are excellent. Not being a chicken eater - I've tried to find a lemon chicken dish at several other good Italian restaurants since I tried the one at Gennaro's - and none have come close. So... My personal dilemma (on our next visit) will be to try another dish or to stick with the Lemon Chicken.
The restaurant isn't that far from Hwy 281 and not that far from North San Antonio. It is certainly worth the drive.
TIP: Regardless of where you are coming from - MAKE A RESERVATION. They are ALWAYS busy.
