I have been to this restaurant like 10 times and I love it. Their pizza is really good, but their dinners are even better! I ordered their baked ziti (which is baked) and it was the best I've had! I'm bring my family here when they come

Poor service, poor food, waste of time....

Waited for 20 minutes to be seated, waited 30 minutes for meal, salad greens served were not well- gritty
Baked pasta dish was cold in the center, pasta was not fresh - had been reheated - dried

Just had the worst dining experience in over a few years. Lucky me. Long wait at the door, probably due to the Christmas holidays. Food took forever and the shrimp scampi was no where near enjoyable. Small shrimp, served over linguini. Very basic. 3 loaves of bread served before the meal. One loaf plain the other 2 were garlic. Bread was good, just way too much. Salad came with the meal. Not before. Poor waitress, who kept apologizing. I would not recommend this restaurant, and would never go back.

Pros: not one good thing

Just to preface this comment, I'm not one to complain or compliment except in the most extreme circumstances.

During a recent business trip to St. Petersburgh, I asked one of my clients to suggest a place to get some Italian food. He directed me to Gennaro's. Although it was a little hard to find because of the size of the place and it's in a residential area, it was well worth the trip. It was the best Italian food I've eaten and the service was impeccable. The prices were very reasonable as well. If you're ever in the area, I would strongly recommend this restaurant.

Gennaro's the only way to describe the place is all around excellent! I visited recently and a friend had bragged that the restaurant was just like home(NY). I and a few friends went and as soon as we walked through the door we were greeted by two smiling staff members, we were escorted to our table and the atmosphere was very inviting. Now to the good part; the food, The sauce is absolutly AMAZING!! I personally had the chicken parmigana and i have never had it out were i enjoyed it more than my mothers, not only was my meal amazing everyone couldnt stop raving. overall the experience was great the food, the atmosphere and the service were superb. Make your way to Gennaro's on the beach, its well worth it!!

I love it when you go to a restaurant and you feel like you are eating at your own dinner table! Portions were very large at very reasonable price! We will definitely return again!

We have been eating at Gennaro's for years and it is the most consistently EXCELLENT place we can name. My wife and I both work so we eat out 5 to 6 nights a week and often eat here twice a week. If ANYONE has eaten at this place and had bad service, they deserved it ! The waitstaff, manager and kitchen staff are very pleasant and accomodating. We've been through the entire menu but my favorite is the stromboli, my wife likes the parmesan dishes. Always get the salad! Garlic cheese bread is great too! Parking has always been our only problem but it's generally less than a block walk and always worth it, rain or shine! Call ahead for reservations or avoid peak times. (The beer could be colder). Aside to "nlghf", you should stick to Pizza Hut - or better yet, stay home!

Pros: Exceptional Italian food, friendly atmosphere, good value. Best on the Beach!

Cons: Parking, long waiting line during the season, limited seating, Sinatra music...

For take out only. They have rude, border line vindictive service. OUr favorite incident with the wait staff occured about 1 months ago: we asked for pasta with rose sauce (which they have on Pizzza and used to serve with Pasta); the waitress said they did not have it; we mentioned that they had served it before and still put it on Pizza; she said she would assk the kitchen staff; she turned around to wait on another table, then returned to our table to tell us they did not have it thinking we did not know that she never went to the kitchen. We eat here aout once a month due to its proximity to our place and always see another customer complain about the service- we gave up complaing 3-4 visits ago.

If you are looking for a little ripper of an Italian Restaurant you cannot go past Gennaro's Pizza & Restaurant in St. Petersburg, FL. Situated on Pass A Grill Way about 1/4 a mile from the St Pete Beach, Whether it is for a quick pasta or special occasion this is a great place to eat. Gennaro's offers a wide variety of fine Italian cuisine which portrays both the authentic and classic flavors of Italy. The menu is extensive so there is something for everyone. My family and I have been a few times in the recent weeks and have been delighted trying a wide range of dishes from the Pasta, Risotto, Salad, as you would expect with an Italian Restaurant.
What also will entice anyone is the size of the servings which are very generous and come at a very reasonable price.
The food is scrumptious, but you cannot beat the fantastic service. The waitresses are friendly, enthusiastic and always smiling.
Truly, it's a feast not only for the eyes, but for the stomach.

Pass A Grille is the greatest place to be on St Pete Beach. Genarro's happens to be the best place to eat on the beach. The food and service go hand on hand with the comfortable and warm atmosphere of this small beach community. Italian cuisine that is so good you don't want to chew the food just let it melt in your mouth. If you in the area you definitely have to stop by and enjoy the friendly service and amazing food.

I've recently visited Gennaro's Restaurant while on vacation with my family. My husband and I were looking for a place where we could get good "NY style" pizza, our hotel recommended Gennaros on Pass a grille way. When we arrived we were greeted by the most generous servers I've ever met. We ordered pizza for the kids, chicken piccatta and veal parm. Our children are a little hard to manage at times, but the server came over with cannolis to hold them down while the food was being prepared. The food was absolutely wonderful and the service was great. They knew everyone that entered the restaurant by name and actually knew what drinks to bring them before they even ordered. The restaurant is very traditional with a "Homey" Italian feel...We loved every minute of it and definitely will be returning in the fall. Thank you girls so much for the experience.

Pros: Very friendly service, excellent food

.

We discovered Gennaro's in January and have dined there at least twice a week ever since. The family owned restaurant features exceptional Italian food with everything from pizza, subs and calzones to exquisite pasta, veal, chicken and seafood entrees. The chef creates masterpieces usually only found in large metropolitian cities.

The service is top rate. The atmosphere is very romantic and very italian.The portions are very large so you might not have room for dessert, but take some home as they are not to be missed.
