Gennaro's Italian Ristorante
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.
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!
Food was great as always! The room was too dark to read the menu so had to use the flashlight on my phone, but otherwise everything was great! The waitress was friendly and took good care of us.
Our family loves Gennaros. My wife if from NY and this is the best Italian food we have found in CHS. Always fresh and homemade.
Always outstanding Italian classics! The eggplant a la Michael is outstanding!
My wife and I had a great dinner here. Service and food both excellent. We will return!
Veal dish and spaghetti were delicious + egg plant Ali Michael
I would recommend Gennaro's to everyone. They have the best, most authentic Italian food anywhere down here. The only thing is the lighting could be brighter. We come here as often as possible.
Better than Carrabbas. Friendly folks and great food!!
Always delicious with great atmosphere. The waiter was a little slow. Maybe he is newer. He was pleasant. We were not in a hurry.
The food was outstanding, service was a little slow.
My favorite restaurant in the Charleston area. Always great! The mussels are the best around.
We had a wonderful dinner Saturday night and had the best server that walked us through the menu.
The food was delicious and desserts divine. Please make a reservation and go you won't regret it.
Always great food
We've been patrons to this restaurant for 6 years now . Absolutely love it!
My first time visiting Gennaro's. The food was very good. Service was good, everyone friendly.
I had a dish on the gluten-free menu it was excellent! My only complaint was it was too dark as I was there for lunch.
Outstanding in every aspect, we love the food and service. Reminds us of the Italian restaurants in New York.
Great food & service, a little pricey but still delicious.
Food was great, but the service was very poor and slow.
The most authentic Italian Restaurant in this area. The food never disappoints.
Make a reservation, always busy.
Been there several times, always wonderful, always good service and good food
Amazing place for a first date. It was quite and great place for conversation. Food was amazing and our waitress was awesome m. This restaurant is a must 😂😁
The tuna in my Tuna Saltimbocca was excellent quality, but ruined by an inexplicable excess of Marsala sauce. I order chicken and veal saltimbocca whenever I see it on an Italian restaurant menu, and I've never experienced anything like the version I was served at Gennaro's. Completely different than anything I've received in any other restaurant, and very disappointing. Everything was swimming in a pool of marsala wine based sauce, so that was the only flavor discernible. I like Gennaro's but would never order this dish again.
The service was great, we felt very welcome. I had the lasagna it was very bland.
Great food, service and value. A reminder of great family owned Italian restaurants from the northeast.
I recommend Gennaro's to anyone that likes Italian food. The ambiance is great and the staff is very friendly.
Great evening! Awesome Jazz band! Wonderful food and service!
Excellent food and our server was outstanding. Very dark inside tho maybe turn on a few more lights.
Beat Italian restaurant in the Charleston Area. A go-to place for family gatherings.
Great food with a hard to find intimacy with your significant other.
For the price we paid, that included a “buffet surcharge”, can’t compete with other brunches we’ve had
Excellent choices, superb presentations and Amber amounts on each plate. The 🍞 bread was wonderful and so fresh! Our waitress was friendly and offered great advice, he was very knowledge!
