Perfect for a date night or a romantic dinner. Low lit, candle lighting, and a fantastic wine menu. I enjoy the salad with the fried goat cheese to start. The Italian is exquisite!

We went to Genusa's with our son and granddaughters. I ordered a veal dish and my wife a salad and both were delicious. We had a nice bottle of cabernet and our server was very good. Overall, a good meal and pleasant night out.
