Been going to Genaro's for the past few years and have brought friends and family visiting from out of town and everyone have it s 5 star rating. The food is authentic Italian and consistent each time wise and I have gone. The sides mushrooms are the best. Service has always been excellent also
This was our first visit to Gennaro's and it was worth the 40 minute drive (17 miles) on a Thursday evening for live jazz and very good italian cuisine. The jazz was classic and we liked it better that any jazz we saw at Spoleto this year (2018).
Food was very good and serving sizes were very adequate.
Our waitress was so kind and helpful! Loved the food, the vibe, the price.
Food was fantastic and the young lady that was our server was AMAZING. Always on the spot with whatever we needed , great sense of humor and very professional
A Summerville institution for decades! Their food is Charleston worthy and their service is always impeccable! Highly recommended for special occasions! Worth the money.
We had the veal piccata and chicken Parmesan! Everything was excellent and our waitress was perfect in ensuring our every need was met! We love this charming place!
Never disappoints. Have been bringing friends here for 3 years. On Thursday's they have Jazz night so it is noisier than other nights but the Jazz is great! I absolutely love the Lasagna but everything is delish!
Always enjoy going for dinner here. Our server, Tessa, was very attentive and helpful. Requested a table close as walking difficulties and lighting since we had one member of the party that has poor eyesight. Everything taken care of, perfectly! Delicious food and huge servings! A fantastic value.
The food is always delicious and there's plenty of it!
Delicious, authentic Italian food. Spicy zuppa sauce on mussels was delightful. Seafood dish was excellent, as was the special entree of shrimp and avocado with artichoke pasta. Great service and wonderful waitress. We will be back!
Lasagna was not the best I ever had. My wife's veal parmigiana lacked pizazz , her words, not mine. Questionable whether we will try it again.
Our first time eating at Gennaro's and will not be the last! Great fun and awesome waitress!!
Really great food! Along with outstanding service. Definitely recommend.
We have been going here for years and the food is amazing.
We have eaten here many times and the food and service are both consistently good. We keep coming back... Tara, our server is always very pleasant and attentive. We'll be back again...
I took my father here for his 93rd birthday. We had a wonderful time! We ordered the clams oreganata for appetizers. What a throwback! Hardly anyone makes these delicious clams. Yours was outstanding! My father ordered the Caesars salad. Homemade dressing, yes, nothing out of a bottle. My half order of seafood Alfredo was perfectly cooked. I would definitely return when I’m in the area. Thank you staff for making this occasion a very happy one!
My wife's pick for her birthday let us down this year.Her favorite Lasagna wasn't a layered masterpiece, but instead, a blob of pasta and sauce, dumped in a bowl. Something went wrong that night in a normally good restaurant .
As always great food and great service
We were their for our first time celebrating our daughter’s birthday. Everything was great. We will return.
Great service. Prompt seating with reservation. Food was incredible as usual. Thanks again.
Tracy was our server and was extremely personable. The food was amazing. The bread was absolutely phenomenal. Portions were generous and the ambience was on point
Alright, I'm a little biased. I used to bring my wife here on dates some 33 years ago when it was located on Savannah Highway.... Still an awesome place. I love the chicken bolognese with the white cream sauce. My wife is partial to the chicken parmigiana . We try to eat here at least once when we come back into Charleston to visit.
My lasagna wasnt good. It had big slices of something in it. When I told the waitress she asked the cook and he said it was fine. Not a good answer. Won’t be coming back ever.
Great food. Staff was awesome. Always a pleasure to eat at Gennaro’s
Very traditional Italian, which I love!!
We love Gennaros. The food is out of this world. We were here for a birthday celebration and used the free birthday dinner coupon they mail to you. It’s the best Italian food in the area.
Excellent food, very attentive staff and very relaxing, no rush.
We were very pleased with our 1st visit on a recent Sundayfor Lunch. The atmosphere was cozy like I love and the Waitress was very friendly and attentive and helpful! The Food was ample portions and very authentic! The fried Calamari Appetizer was wonderful and crisp and tender. The Eggplant Parmesan was so flavorful and full of Eggplant slices unlike the skimpy slices at Olive Garden! The Veal Parmesan was good and the Tiramisu was fabulous! The Cheesecake was a bit bland and dry. BEING NEW I was,gazing around and the Owner was worried we were not being served...he wasquick to check! KUDOS to great service!!
We mentioned it was a bday party and they never followed up. Thought the waitress was a little impersonal.
Found Gennaro’s almost by accident. So glad I did. Food was excellent, as was the service. Great little family owned dining spot!
We went on jazz night (Thursday) and it was perfect! The food was wonderful! I think I ate a bulb clove of garlic with my bread but it was so good I couldn’t stop eating it. They stole my heart when they asked me if I wanted a pasta spoon because none of the restaurants here ever give me one. ❤️ The jazz music was the perfect volume for dining. The staff seemed a little short handed the night we went but I’ve never seen wait staff move so fast to make up for it. We will be back again on jazz night!
I have never been disappointed with this place. The food second to none and special requests from menu does not cause a problem. I love the Tuna and my wife can never leave with out kanolees
Never disappointed at Gennaro’s. Authentic Italian.
Enjoyed our food and our waitress was exceptional! Went to bar for an after dinner drink and it was little noisy but good service from our waitress and drinks were reasonable. Overall good experience.
We were very impressed with the quality of the food especially with the very reasonable prices. Everything we tasted had a great taste. The server was a little off his game, but explained at the end of the night that he hadn't been feeling well. He forgot our appetizer (that he recommended!), but tried to make it up by comping a dessert. You could see he really cared and was embarrassed. Like we said - mistakes happen, not a big deal. It was just that the stuffed mushrooms sounded so good, we really wanted to try them. Oh well...next time.
Never a disappointment. Food is always amazing as is the service
This was an excellent outing. Thursday night and the jazz band was entertaining us during an excellent meal with superb service.
