I 've chosen the restaurant rather by force than by will, and was positively surprise.
It is true that you are basically dragged to the table by the personal, but it is not very different of what you can experience in other tourisitc sites of Paris or Rome. If you don' t like this way of doing, then do not go to touristic areas. and, no one oblige you to sit down if you don' t like.
It is indeed expensive, but the pasta tasted as freshly homemade and not from supermarket and portions were quite ok.

Caeser salad was great! Spouse loved the clams. I had the chicken parmesian and ate every bite! Spouse had the seafood resotto. He said it's the best he has had in the states and they gave a good size portion. A+!

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Really nice environment right on the street. Lunch menu was somewhat limited. Food was tasty. Service was very lacking. Took a while to get a server to the table. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here again.

We went to Little Italy in search of a dinner spot so strolled along Mulberry Street assessing options. We decided that one that had patrons probably boded better than the empty one's with staff trying their best to coerce you inside. We like that ambience of Da Gennaro from the street and was immediately taken to a cosy table in the packed restaurant. The dipping oil that came with the fresh bread immediately cancelled our carb reduced eating!! That dipping oil is amazing. We followed this with simple pasta and pizza - both delicious. A great choice in Little Italy - was not disappointed.
