We were a small group of friends which arrived without a reservation for a late lunch. The hostess sat us at an ample table and the waitress was delightful, patient with us (you know how a group can chat and not pay attention to the menu) and helpful. I ordered the Florantina pizza. It was wonderful. Others ordered "lunch portion"... More

While I have eaten onsite twice, I have purchased trays of various types of dishes (lasagna, macaroni, salads, etc.) four times to take to certain events like family get togethers and the meals have always been a hit. Fresh, hot, and tasty. Good quality food with great service. Very simple formula and Gennaro's pulls it off.

Love Gennaro's Eatery, this restaurant is definitely one of my local go to's which can be compared to going to the North End with the North End prices. Food is great quality, fresh and served to order. Portions are very generous, I almost always have leftovers to take home.

The food was very good in quality and quantity. But, it's not a place I'd take a date. It's brightly lit, and set up for family style dining. Entrees were reasonably priced, but for a few $ more there are places nearby that would include a garden or Greek Salad, with more ambiance. They need a bigger place so that... More

If you are looking for fantastic Italian food this is the place. It's small, but the flavors are large...They have been in business for many years and it is a go to place for great food by locals and folks from surrounding cities...Highly reccomend.
