We showed up with 7 adults and 2 little kiddos and they had us stuffed to the rafters and out the door in an hour. Great prices, great pizza and those garlic knots are off the hook!

I ordered a to-go from here and it had one of the best pizzas (Vegetarian) I ever had. The dough was perfectly cooked and there were good amount veggies on it unlike other pizzas. The tiramisu was excellent too. You must here if you are in town.

Desk clerk recommended this walk to restaurant. I started with a bowl of minestrone soup. I must say it was the best. I ordered a sausage sub with peppers and onions parmigiano. The sauce was delicious and obviously homemade. My waitress was friendly and attentive, providing me with supplies to use when reheating my leftovers later in my hotel room.... More

We ordered a pizza here because it was next door to the hotel we stayed in. Really nice family pizzeria quick service ,reasonable charges, and a good pie. The house soup was also great and home made. That was a great surprise.

As a local, I really want my hometown businesses to succeed. The night we visited was quite busy, which was encouraging. However, the food was so disappointing. We ordered chicken parmigiana, sausage and peppers, lasagna, and an individual pizza with French fries (the teenager with us). Salads were the first huge disappointment- plates of iceberg lettuce with four slices of... More

Wasn't expecting a great slice of pizza in Luray Virginia but got one here at Gennaro's On our B&B hosts suggestion we stopped by were lucky to get a table and were rewarded with a great pizza. The Works would rival any pizza joint I could put it against.

The staff just seemed really unhappy to be here. Food was OK - generic pizza, take-out italian stuff, salads.

I must say we were staying at the hotel up on the hill across from Gennaro's and were hungry and were looking on TripAdvisor for something good to eat and we were pretty blown away by the great reviews for Gennaro's so we decided to walk dow the hill and try it. I must say I was a little skeptical... More

We were very pleasantly surprised with our food. We ordered the garlic knots, a steak sub and a pizza; all were very good. If staying in or passing by Luray, this is a great place to have a very good meal at a very reasonable price.
