Had a fabulous dinner there the past weekend. The food was amazing. I had the chicken florentina & my husband had the lasagna. Couldn't finish unfortunately. Will definitely go there again next time were in the Canyon Lake area. Will definitely make a reservation next time though!

Loved the whole experience at Gennaro's! Were in town to celebrate our anniversary and given Gennaro's as the place to dine. We weren't disappointed. The Calamari Fritti app, along with delicious warm bread and e.v.o.o. started the evening out right! Fried perfectly! We both had the special which was a beautiful piece of snapper, one over risotto, the other over rigatoni; both had beautiful large shrimp as well. It was melt in your mouth devine! Since we were celebrating...we had to share a dessert! The tiramisu was so good I almost didn't share!! =] The service was excellent as well--we would highly recommend Gennaro's!

Fifteen of us had a wonderful dinner at Gennaro's. The service was great and the food was excellent. Not one complaint from any of the diners. The bread and dipping oil are almost too good--

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!
