Gennaro's Italian Ristorante
We have been going there since they opened. The best in our neighborhood.
The food was fantastic, as usual. Salmon Florentine, Eggplant Parmesan and Brussels Sprout appetizer. Service was attentive and they took the time to warm the room slightly for me at our request.
Bread was warm and olive oil /garlic/balsamic vinaigrette was very tasty. Entrees (chicken Marsala & veal parmigiana) were both good and portions were large. Our server McKenna was knowledgeable and attentive.
Great dinner, great menu and selections, really good service, nice wine offerings. Enjoyed the meal and our evening very much!
We have been visiting Gennaro’s since it’s opening and have never been disappointed. Always the best! Our favorite Italian restaurant
Hadn't been there in over twenty years. Don’t know why I was punishing myself. The place is excellent!
Wonderful and Delicious! It was our first time there and well worth it. Our server Jason was spectacular.
We had dinner this evening and Tara was our server. The food was excellent, Tara and the Hostess were both amazing, the ambiance was perfect. I have been saying that Charleston needed a great New York Italian style restaurant, well I finally found it and
I will definitely be back. That chicken bolognase...awesome and the house wine both the red (cab) and white (chard) we’re perfect. Probably my new favorite restaurant
Wonderful food. Wonderful wait staff.
Nice family restaurant
For a local southern Italian restaurant, it was average. The dipping oil for the bread had too much garlic. The tomato sauce was average. Server forgot to give us the dinner specials. I had them from a different server. Nice, clean business. Price to value about right. Average local spot.
Excellent vintage-style Italian dishes prepared perfectly. House dressing was excellent. Bread was nice and crusty. Servers ere attentive but not obtrusive. Great experience
always awesome everything!!! food is delicious... service awesome.... clean bathrooms and restaurant... friendly staff.... romantic atmosphere.... LOVE it
Jason our server was outstanding.
Was looking forward due to reviews on open table but I should have researched more reviews from diners from NY.
We have different taste and expectations.
Defiantly not close to a NY Italian restaurant.
Everyone very friendly but a lot of raw garlic taste.
Not creative menu at all, all same sauces on most dishes.
Service was polite and nice but guess my waitress wanted to go home early or I was her last table, when I ordered desert she asked if I wanted it to go.
Never was asked that and then she dropped check and never asked if I wanted coffee.
Nice people but I won’t ever be back.
We always love Gennaro's! The food is great and the service is always good.
Our server was extremely busy, but we weren't in a rush. She was very good! Celebrated our 36th anniversary and enjoyed it very much.
We had an Sunday dinner that was wonderful. Great food- great service. We all
Had the specials of the day. Delicious
Best food ever. Been going for years. Shame they left West Ashley.
Only compliant it’s way too dark. Needs more lighting.
The restaurant is a classic old style Italian restaurant with very good food and a quiet atmosphere. We had a lovely dinner on a Sunday evening. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Very good food and service.
This was my second time here and both times EVERYTHING was absolutely great!!! I will definitely go back and recommend it to others
Great food as always! Perfectly cooked salmon florentine. Dinner partners enjoyed pizza and seafood alfredo. One of the freshest salads in town. A bit old and funky, but who wants the same-ol' chains all the time. This is always of of mt op-five for visitors. Thanks to the Gennaro family for years of great recipes and personal service.
Birthday dinner for my family, it was wonderful!
Great! Everything was excellent!
It was a great Italian restaurant. The food and the service was just outstanding and I will definitely be back. The pasta and pizza or just so perfect and delicious you can definitely tell it was made with love an a touch of Italy culture.
I have already recommended the restuarant. Food was very good and prices also reasonable
Love Thursday night Jazz. Great atmosphere and great food!
Warm, friendly service. Excellent Filet Marsala and Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo. We will be back very soon! Thank you!
Great place.Food was amazing,service was awesome.Looking forward to my next visit.
I love Gennaros, everything I've eaten has been delicious. Would recommend to anyone.
My husband and I love Gennaro's! Italian is one of my favorite food groups and we have not been disappointed with this restaurant. The food tastes wonderful and we love the variety of options such as veal, chicken, beef, seafood & vegetarian options. It's great for special occasions, although a little pricey for every night dinners. Service has always been great as well. You might want to get a reservation for busy Friday/Saturday nights as they get very busy! Guess that means a lot of others agree with me!
Food was fantastic!
The food is pretty awful. Everything is over garlic. The restaurant is quite large and they sat us in a room that had a family gathering which was really loud. I’m sure they could have said us someplace else that would’ve been much more quiet. Every time the waiter came to our table he rushed in and barely let us speak before he ran away.
It’s a wonderful place to go for everyday dining. The flavors were well scaffolded, one building on the other, and culminating in satisfaction and the desire to have “one more bite”. The staff was courteous, well presented and knowledgeable. Definitely a place I will visit again to explore more of the menu.
Great place for Italian cuisine. Recommended house white wine.
Another perfect evening at Gennarro’s! Our food, sesame crusted tuna and chicken Marsala were cooked to perfection and served and perfectly plated as any 5 star restaurant. Many thanks to the Gennarro’s for a beautiful evening.
We have been coming here for years I never had a bad experience just great food and great service
Out food was outstanding, as was the service. Only one complaint, as others have mentioned in previous reviews, it is very dark. No way we could read the menu with the light at the table. We had to pull out the cell phone and turn on that trusted flashlight to read the menu. Once past that problem everything was outstanding. A little more light would be very helpful for those newcomers that don’t have the menu memorized!
This restaurant has a quaint and welcoming feel coming in the door. The subdued light with lots of wood is comfortable. The seats in our booth were very comfortable with nicely cushioned seats. The menu is pleasing to read and the food is delicious. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. The food is delivered quickly with enough time allowed for an appetizer or cocktail. The entree's are moderately priced, especially for the quality of the food. The veal parmigiano is exquisite. What you enjoy here is well worth what you will pay.
Gennaros never disappoints, food is always amazing, the staff are informative on the dishes when questioned are asked. Great experience!
