Going to Gennaro's is always a tasty, welcoming and fun experience. The owner and his employees are friendly and attentive (Gennaro, Rene, Dublas, and the young gentleman with the beard!) The appetizers, entrees and desserts are always delicious. Love the atmosphere.

The appetizer was a disappointment unfortunately. Was not Italian like you would think. Way too american. You don't fry prosciutto. Or add bread crumbs in Italian foods. Why do you Americans always have to ruin the food.. Main course was better. But not worth the price. I was hoping to experience new tastes, but it didn't happen.

Had a fabulous Friday night dinner with my boyfriend for his birthday! Easily made reservations online and they called 2 hours before to confirm (I thought that was great). We were seated right away, food took no time to come out and everything was delicious. You can actually have a conversation in here without screaming, so it's a wonderful place to catch up with family/friends. Would recommend!

This was our third visit to Gennaro's in two months time. We celebrated a birthday, Mother's Day and a date night. The staff is cheerful and friendly. Always a warm greeting at the door. The food is delicious. We haven't had one item we haven't liked. We especially enjoy the family style appetizer which gives you a taste of everything. We weren't rushed at all and were able to thoroughly enjoy our family get togethers. We plan to go back often.

This restaurant is a hidden gem near Princeton. The food was outstanding, the service perfect, and our waiter Greg was the best waiter, the most attentive waiter we have had in a very long time.

The restaurant was really really really good I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the city of Princeton

Wonderful bread. Unusual salad with deep fried artichokes (a surprise) tasted very good. Mussels excellent. Veal piccatta kind of greasy and lemon sauce wasn't very "lemony". Pasta (linguini with both entres) was not made in house (it was clearly the dried boxed kind you get at the grocery store.) Pleasant "old world" ambiance -- lots of dark wood, lace curtains, and small dining areas. Noisy!

we (my wife and friends) drove an hour for very good food and excellent service and will continue to do so. Gennaro's is one of those comfortable restaurants that have no gimmicks, no pretenses, nothing phony...they serve very good food in a very comfortable setting and i would recommend them to the harshest food critics. Additionally, they are a BYO which is an added attraction.

Our family had a wonderful evening celebrating a birthday at Gennaro's. We were met by the owner with a warm and friendly greeting. The wait staff was excellent. They did not rush us through the meal. The meal was excellent. We had a most enjoyable time and would highly recommend dining here. I myself am looking forward to returning very soon!

We love this restaurant! We frequently come with friends and can always count on a great Italian meal. Italian friends of ours say it is amazing and they have tried many Italian restaurants in the area. It's BYOB so that is nice too. Staff is friendly and attentive and the owner is wonderful!

Consistently my favourite restaurant in Princeton. Genuine Italian food with an emphasis on fresh ingredients cooked in a way that makes all their flavors out on your palette. The staff are always friendly and accommodating and I find it the perfect place to end the work week, or take visitors who deserve a special meal in a friendly relaxed atmosphere.
