The food was exceptional. We had a variety of dishes and every one of them was great... The service was very friendly and cheerful. The atmosphere was very happy, relaxed and warm. The scenery and surroundings are beautiful and peaceful. Definitely recommend to all.

At Canyon Lake, it's slim pickins for eateries and even slimmer for good food. We watched in anticipation in 2010 as Gennaro's was remodeling, in hopes that good food was to come. Not only is the restaurant beautiful but, the food is AMAZING. We find ourselves there sometimes twice a week. There is usually a packed house and its always a good idea to make reservations one day ahead, even for weekdays...yes weekday reservations in Canyon Lake! The Pork Osso Bucco is to die for and so is their Crabby Risotto. The chef knows how to cook fish deliciously and their menu offers something for everyone. Pizzas are divine and so is their fresh bread, especially the twisted rolls.
I send whoever asks, including all our flyfishing clients and guests there to eat regularly and we've yet to be disappointed.
This place is a must! We love it!

Outstanding Italian food in the middle of Texas Hill Country! What a spectacular find! This place was busy at 3:00 in the afternoon.that should tell you a lot. We had the seared Sea Bass, which was enough for two.

Folks have been talking about this restaurant for months; seriously, unsolicited comments about the best italian they'd ever had. The restaurant will be celebrating a year in business soon and they still have a full house almost every night. Kudos to you - keep it up; and thanks for bringing such a fine food experience to our area at a superb price point.

Gennaro's is undoubtedly the best Italian restaurant my family and I have frequented since moving to the area. I cannot find anything objectionable since the ambiance, food, wine, and service is outstanding. One small flaw would be the level of noise generated by a restaurant full of satisfied, happy patrons enjoying one another and the awesome quisine. However, if one goes in with the expectation of a noisy crowd, it probably won't matter too much. For any special occasion, Gennaro's is the place you will find us!
