Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant had 1 server for the entire service. He was trying very hard, but all dishes were late and food was cold by the time it reached our table. It took almost 25 minutes just to get our bill! Gennaro's use to be such a great restaurant. I don't think I'll be going back any time soon."

  • "Never had darkened the door at Gennaro's - but since our first choice was booked, we took a flyer based on reviews. What a pleasant surprise! A very unrushed, quality food and excellent service. Nice touch was the red rose for all the ladies present. We would definitely return."

  • "My husband and I did not have a good time. It started with our reservation being given away to someone impersonating us; then to a calamari appetizer that was not seasoned properly, nor crispy; and finally to an entree that took over an hour to reach our table. Our reservation was at 6:45 pm and our entrees hit our table at 8:20 pm. My pan seared scallops were seasoned well and tender; but unfortunately, there was no good sear on it. I gave up on dessert. The service staff was very nice. Our server apologized for the wait. But overall, we will not be going back."

  • "On a Saturday night at 8, this restaurant was nearly empty. For the price point, the food and house wine were merely OK, but the service was attentive and pleasant. we enjoyed the live piano music, but that stopped at 9."

  • "This was our first time visiting and the food was delicious! The wait staff was friendly, but very very slow. After asking for our bill several times and waiting quite a while sadly, the poor service left a very bad taste in our mouths."

  • "A very nice, smart, sophisticated room with high end table ware. Tiffany our Maitre'd, Hostess, Bar tender, and Server was well informed and willing to please and asked all the right questions. Soothing music, a comfortable romantic place. The food though was nothing special, good solid Italian dishes, not fancy, just OK presentations, each plate was priced a bit too high for what you get. The vegetables in the minestrone were all chopped to the same small size so there was no change in texture, just a so-so soup, needed a lot of Parmesian. Our entrees were just OK, the chicken in my Chicken Marsala was over cooked and dried out, but my lady friend enjoyed her ravioli. Everything is a-la-carte, so bring a card with a high limit."

  • "Was a very nice experience. Took my wife here for her birthday. A little abandoned at 6:30 pm on a Friday night, but the food was very good. My medium steak was a bit too medium-rare, but it was still very tender and enjoyable. My wife had an excellent seafood dish consisting of grilled lobster, shrimp, and scallops. We look forward to going again. Only downside was the parking. They do have a little parking lot in the back, but seemed really cramped."

  • "Really quiet out of the way location.... nice atmosphere.... really quiet... not crowded. Perfect for a intimate tete-a-tete, or a group meal where you need to hear one another."

  • "Definitely a HIDDEN gem in Glendale! Location is super important in the restaurant game, and Gennaro's is a little off the beaten path. It was super quiet on a Saturday night, and that is a shame as the food is delicious. We tried to make a reservation at another Italian place in Toluca Lake but they were full. Too bad for them, we have found a new favorite in the valley. A piano player kept us entertained throughout the evening and service was very good. If you've never been, make it a point. You won't be disappointed."
