While I found the atmosphere of this place to be great I was unimpressed by the food. The portions were on the smaller side and it was on the bland side. Lamb shank lacked any real flavor. Also, be sure to bring cash if you go. It is cash only!

I love when the waiter Mike describes to us 15 specials of the night and recommends a great glass of wine. If you really care about the specials watch where you sit, you may get the waiter who is never overjoyed about reciting the many nightly delights. It is extremely crowded on a peak night after 6pm but once you become addicted to the food its hard not to go. Go with cash and enjoy yourself just remeber if you can't meet the $20 per person minimum because the pastas only $13.00, then order the $6 bottle of water or save some room for dessert.

I live in the neighborhood and have eaten here quite a few times. I have really enjoyed every meal, although you often have to wait for a table. The menu displayed on this website doesn't really represent what is offered...there are amazing specials that change daily. I recommend trying them out!

I don't know what the other reviewers are talking about - the service here is great - the waitstaff is attentive, friendly, and knowledgable - even when there's a crowd they are attentive without rushing you. and the food is very good!

While Gennaro's food is usually enjoyable, don't bother ordering for delivery. It consistently takes 50 minutes or more for delivery. On one occasion it took an hour and a half to deliver our meal without any warning or subsequent consolation from the restaurant. Neither the manager nor the maitre 'd offered any sort of discount or special reimbursement for the delay, blaming it on "being busy," and "what do you want me to do?" Won't order again, and most likely won't visit again.

Gennaro used to be an excellent place. Now it is too crowed and you really feel being rushed thru your meal. Sorry, it is off my list

After enjoying what was a rather decent dinner at gennaro, i left the place with a sour after taste. i don't believe that a restaurant that gives its waiters the authority to impolitely and abruptly demand that diners vacate table immediately after closing the bill has anything to be proud of no matter how decent the food may be. a good restaurant must ensure that diners feel happy and comfortable about enjoying their meals and parting with money at a particular establishment. this is a restaurant best enjoyed at home via it's take-out service, that way you needn't worry about getting kicked out when your plate's over....
