The meal was excellent tonight as always. Sad to see we can’t dine there for awhile ☹️ government says! We Will return 😊
I had requested a quiet table so our family could celebrate two anniversaries and the restaurant came through for us. Very nice. We celebrate there every year.
It was our anniversary and this place is like an old family Italian restaurant just like at home in New York! Love this place.
This was our first visit to your restaurant.
The quality of food was very good. We were disappointed in the Lasagna since it didn't seem to be prepared exactly as shown on your website video.
Also, your Bolognese Sauce did not have ground veal .
1st time there. Great food. Great wine selection. Great service. Will be back
Great food and cocktails. Had a great evening
Gennaro's is always great. The food is wonderful and the service is always good.
Keep up the good work. Our waiter was prompt, knowledgeable and friendly.
The aroma from the food cooking is almost intoxicating!
Highly recommend this hidden jewel!
The food was very good and our waiter Mike was exceptional.
we have been enjoying Gennaro's for over the years. LOVE IT!
Gennaro’s is my go to Italian restaurant. Consistent, good quality food. Large portions for leftovers and I make sure to save room for their cheesecake with Spumoni topping!
It was sweet
Food and service was good but took longer than usual due to them being very busy.
It had been years since our last visit to Gennaro's, and I remembered why we hadn't returned sooner. We had a reservation for 6 pm and arrived promptly. All six guests stood in the foyer, and the hostess promised to seat us shortly; then she and another person took calls and stood around the desk. After an awkward wait of approximately 5 minutes, the hostessed passed some menus to her colleague, and she led us to an empty table. The table next to ours was occupied and was close ours one of our guests had to excuse himself to be seated, and then their chairs were virtually touching. The food was as expected, very tasty. Our waitress was friendly but overworked; and the entrees arrived at different times. Overall, we had a nice evening in spite of these flaws, and it's still the best Italian restaurant in the northwestern suburbs of Charleston, but improvements could be made.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Charleston. The food is so delicious always and the hospitality is always good.
Even though the restaurant was very extremely busy and people were waiting, the server, Brittany, was very attentive, service was excellent and we didn't have to wait for our food long.
I like this restaurant because it has all the classic Italian dishes and there are specials that change things up. Our server was very knowledgable about questions we had on the menu which was a plus. It is a great place for a family or friends get together, not fancy, but delicious and not expensive.
Great food. Authentic. Family owned.
Attentive service, awesome ambience, and the food was amazing and delicious as always. Cannot wait to go back.
Always great food and service,
Great Italian food. Building is old needs a remodel inside.
As always it was a great meal. Always happy for an excuse to drive from West Ashley to eat at Gennaro’s. Already looking forward to next time. Thanks Robert.
Consistently good food and service. Been going for 25 years. Never disappointed.
Our neighborhood favorite!
Promptly seated at reservation time. Excellent service, great food.
very good food. went there for birthday. Thanks love the stuffed mushrooms appetizer
Good Italian food...great service. If you are looking for authentic, this is the place.
Food was great but it was not worth waiting 105 minutes to get it.
We frequently dine here and it is one of our favorites however tonight was below our standard as far as service is concerned. Our server was soo slow and inattentive that several times we had to call over another server to take care of our needs. Yes we will come back but we will request Terra as our server she is the best!
A wonderful experience with good food, great atmosphere and service. We had a variety of seafood and pasta meals that was excellent and a desert that was wonderful. Would recommend to anyone that enjoys old style eating with a atmosphere that allows conversation
Always classy and extremely good. This was the "brunch" on Sunday at noon and the buffet was amazing. I'll be back soon.
Great food, no, excellent food. Everything is so fresh and delicious.
The staff is always knowledgeable and helpful. They always welcome us in like family. The food has always been wonderful!
We were so impressed by the service!! It was Christmas Eve and they were packed to capacity so the kitchen was a little behind. Our server was amazing and kept checking on us and filling our drinks and apologizing for any delay! Great job!!
The food was amazing. The food was quite slow coming out especially for the amount of people in the dining room, but who knows if they had 100 to go orders to feel. I will say that it was worth the wait especially due to the VERY reasonable bottle wine prices. Well, actually, it was really the quality of the food that made the wait worth it, the wine prices were just a bonus!!
We absolutely love our neighborhood restaurant!
