I grew up in Sicily and can confidently say the Gennaro is one of the few restaurants that has authentic sicilian food. The dishes are fresh, innovative and tasteful. I love this place because it reminds me of home!!

Last night, my husband and I decided to visit our favorite spot: Gennaro. It was terribly cold out, but I was dreaming about their pastas all day. We had a great meal. I ordered brussel sprout salad with bottarga and my favorite bucatini cacio e pepe, just like in Rome! John had radicchio and provolone (smells so good) and branzino al cartoccio with baby veggies. We love to go there because they have very nice selections of wines, which go great with the food. All in all, Great night.

This was my preferred italian restaurant in the city...5 to 10 years ago. Price/quality was unbeatable. I lived in Italy for some years, and my family owns a decent restaurant there. This place used to be close the real thing. Now, it is not worth even trying. I do not know what happened but it is a completely different experience. I do not plan to come back.

Mediocre food; long wait for both table and food with misleading information from staff.

Alas, Gennaro has declined to serving pleasant but undistinguished food (altho the carpaccio was excellent). Service was friendly but slow, and the waiter complained to us afterward about a 15% tip (he wanted us to double the tax, which would have made a difference of $3).

We were a party of 6. Seated in back near work area. We were cramped and kept getting "bumped" as waiters walked by our table. After reading the reviews we hoped food would be worth the discomfort. We all had variety of food. Ravioli special, veal special, 2 pasta dishes, 2 chicken dishes. Not one of us was impressed. In addition to mediocre food, we were being rushed after our meal by waiter, even though there was no one waiting to be seated! Will never go back.

The food is generally great here, but tonight we were treated poorly by waiter. Luckily the head waiter was very kind to us as he usually is, but the incident has left us feeling like we don't want to go back.
