Awesome food they have here! The staff is always smiling which is a big plus and the place looks very classy even though this place is so affordable!

I really enjoyed Gennaro's the last time I came, and I was wandering around the area so decided to come back. I got the special pasta dish of the day - seafood with spaghetti. The flavor was good and the spaghetti was cooked al dente. I wasn't impressed with the seafood though. The shrimp was overcooked and the fish and mussels were also slightly overcooked. The calamari had good texture.

I would still come back to get the spinach gnocchi or maybe try other things, and the service was still good and the ambiance cute

Oh so cute.

This place is a perfect spot for a flavourful romantic dinner.

The calamari appetizer was the best I have ever had. I could just sit there and keep eating that alone. But I did move on. Everything was fresh and authentic. I felt like I was back in Italy. They also had a fantastic selection of wine to complement our dinner.

It was a perfect little night, at a perfect little restaurant.

This is my most favorite restaurant in Glendale. I love the ambiance and love the food! Staff is pretty good. Its never get crowded and you can enjoy your company and live classic guitar music.. I highly suggest this place, if you want to relax and enjoy an Italian style ambiance with good food.

It was great.. – It was great to see more and more people are returning to this wonderful restaurant,, With some familiar and talented faces in the kitchen and the dining room led bu the committed interest of a new owner. Gennaro's is well on its way yo regaining the level of a dining experience that made it "THE" place to be. Good Italian food and excellent fish options. well prepared, make it for a great dinner.

Terrible service! And from the new owner!!! – My husband and I have been here several times before and the food is good. We decided to go there tonight for a Valentine's dinner because it's nice and we also had a restaurantcom certificate to boot. However, they wouldn't honor the certificate because they had a 'special' menu. After paying, we spoke with the manager/owner. Apparently, he is a new owner--escrow just closed three days ago--and he's changed things. His 'special' menu was discounted, which is why he couldn't take the certificate Really?! At $30 for red snapper that's discounted? That was regular price before. The only thing he would do for us was to honor that certificate within 30 days. He says he won't be honoring the certificates. But he doesn't even bother to contact restaurantcom to let them know. His service is pathetic. We will not be going there again unless there's a new owner. We'll wait until the place is sold again and hope to get someone with better customer service since he doesn't care about retaining old customers.

good luck – This is by far the best Italian dining experience in Glendale. My girlfriend has been several times, but we ate there this past week for my first time and I was more than impressed! The ambiance of Gennaro's takes you back to a restaurant setting that belongs in Goodfellows... low light, cozy, family-style Italian-white-tablecloth seating and decor abound. The place buzzes with the murmur of casual conversation, mixed with animated banter and the satisfied sounds of satiated customers. We started off with the Fresh Melon & Prosciutto Di Parma, which is a unique and delicious appetizer of three freshly cut cantaloupe melons, draped in warm prosciutto... delicious! We shared the special of the day, which was a Chilean Sea Bass and also shared the Fettucine Verde, Calinga. Both were cooked to perfection, and the alfredo sauce (appropriately so) was the best I have ever had. Oh, how could I forget to mention the buttery garlic toast, which although it is supposed to be brought out first, was forgotten until our entrees arrived. This may sound like a mistake, but I was grateful, because the temptation to fill up on this delicious bread might have been to great to fully enjoy the rest of the meal. Overall a must-experience for anyone living in or visiting the Glendale area. 5-stars was an easy rating to assign to this fantastic establishment! Good luck to the new owners! Keep it on!

Great food – Speechless. I went here for my cousin's baby shower, so the whole restaurant was rented out to us.

We had traditional family style food and service.

I will start off by saying the service was extremely attentive, and the food was absolutely amazing (this is coming from an Italian that is VERY picky).

We had Chicken, Veal,Salad, Calamari, Antipasto, list goes on and on. I honestly don't have anything negative to write about this place. It is good, authentic Italian food with a great atmosphere. Great for private parties!!!!

he family had a dinner here last Sunday. There were ten of us, including two kids and a birthday celebration and the staff handled and accomodated us perfectly.

Parking was easy, there was no wait, and the staff immediately took care of our drinks and orders. The table relish was a carrot/olive/celery/garlic salad that was tasty alongside the fresh bread. We ordered the bruschetta and polenta appetizers which were ample in size and tasted fresh.

My table was 10 deep so we probably covered the whole menu. We all had to get the leftovers wrapped up and were almost too stuffed for dessert... until they brought out the bread pudding with a candle and we all sang happy birthday. Perfect restaurant for families, dates, out of town guests...

Great Italian food that's not pretentious or overdone.
