We stopped into this place after my grandson's basketball against Mt. Carmel. It was a great stop and reminded us of a couple of restaurants we have at home in Texas. We started with the garlic knots and they were great. My wife and granddaughter...More

We ordered carryout here. The food was prepared in a timely manner. The garlic knots were quite tasty. We ordered the Gennaro's Special Sicilian Pizza. It came with a crispy medium thick crust that was very good and quite filling.

Staying next door at the Best Western, Gennaro’s was not only convenient but yummy, too. Pizza was good, and Husband’s caprese salad was great.
