I have had many business lunches and dinners at Gennaro's. The food is consistently excellent, the atmosphere is relaxing, and the service is first class.

My friends had a poor experience here with the wine tasting. We were only served Chilean wine which didn't allow for my best friend to taste any Italian wine for her birthday. The service lacked attention for the first 30 minutes or so until the second server arrived. I asked for the wine menu and never received it. I would not recommend this restaurant as a wine tasting location. The calamari was very bland but the mussels were great!

This is my second review on this place because I just had to give it another try since it was such a fixture in our life for so many years. The result was unfortunately the same - just awful.

Anyone with above a 2 Star Rating obviously did not eat here prior to the new owners. It is just simply not the same - and not worth the visit. I'm writing this review, listening to another table ask "if the chef has changed?" because they do not like their meal. The service is poor .. the food is average and the prices are high.

There was a post on Yelp that said new owners recently bought the place, hired the old chef and a lot of the old wait staff is back - THIS IS NOT TRUE! It is the same terrible ownership that took over about 4 years ago and it is abysmal.

PLEASE Do Not waste your money .... find another Glendale restaurant.... As the old saying goes, you cannot always believe what you read. Any overly glowing review here or on Yelp is simply not telling the truth. YUK!

Earlier this week, I had the pleasure to once again have lunch at this marvelous restaurant in Glendale. The building is charming and the interior decorated in excellent taste. The ambiance is the perfect setting for a quiet interlude highlighted by excellent service and delicious entrees. The tables are nicely spaced so that conversations can be conducted without any background noise. The food has never disappointed me or my guests. As a result, I always look forward to an excellent meal in a near perfect setting suitable for couples, friends or business occasions.
