An open kitchen style, somewhat noisy NYC restaurant, which has great fresh food. The wine list is good and the cost is New York medium. The service is professional and experienced--we did not have to wait long. We had visited this place for over 10...More

Can't complain about anything, but nothing special either. Good food with a relaxed atmosphere, but expensive. Veal Ravioli tasty but small portion, organic chicken with almonds nice. Overall reasonable experience.

Whenever I am in NY, I try to dine at Gennaro and have never been disappointed. The food is fresh, nicely seasoned, pasta is homemade. For NY, the prices are reasonable. I happen to prefer small, intimate restaurants rather than large celebrity owned or Corporate,...More

I eat here a lot, and like to bring out of town friends to Gennaro because it's an unpretentious, casual, neighborhood restaurant that serves food that equals the best Italian restaurants in NYC at half the price. Very extensive menu which is supplemented by a...More

This restaurant has been in the same location for years (although it doubled in size some years back) and it continues to set the standard. Cash only, no reservations, and the food is excellent. I would say that it is a little calmer than it...More
