We had the most fabulous Christmas Eve dinner for our family of eleven. It was elegant, gracious dining with fresh, delicious food. We loved it so much that we're going again tonight! We've been searching for this kind of a restaurant for a couple years and now we found it so close to home! We had read old reviews so wondered, but the new owner has it together! Everything from the service to the freshly baked bread to the fresh fish, pasta and dessert was excellent. And it's so cozy and elegant inside - how wonderful not to have to yell across a table to be heard as is the case in so many "new cuisine" restaurants. Here the linen clothed tables, carpeting and elegant decor make for a romantic and intimate setting complete with classical piano played by a real person not a player piano! yay!! I add this because I've noticed that many newer restaurants no longer have real people playing the piano, instead they have some kind of player piano that just plays by itself. So, I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Introduced some Korean and Korean-American folks to this place, and they all think it's the best Italian place they've ever been to and one of the best (if not the best) restaurant they've been to in the Glendale. In fact, I've been here 3 times in the past week due to out of town co-workers hearing about the raves, and I'm not tired of it (and I get tired of restaurants quickly). That said, this really is a great place. Nice converted house atmosphere with a live piano music. Fresh ingredients--I often get the daily special (usually one pasta and one meat/fish item). Be sure to add a little cheese and pepper to the minestrone soup (Italian vegetable), and it's delicious. Also, best tiramisu ever, although I like some of the other desserts, too. This place is never full - 5 stars..

If you don't try this place you are missing out. New ownership bringing back the Gennaros you loves.

Looking for the perfect intimate location for your next special event? Look no further than Gennarros Ristorante!! I hosted my parents 25th wedding anniversary here this weekend and must say that I'm so lucky to have come across this restaurant. The decor is old style and my parents loved it :) Tony helped me organize the most beautiful party to honor the most special people in my life. Everything about this place was perfection!! The food was DELICIOUS and what can be better than a perfectly crafted passion mojito to wash it all down with and get the party started?? I could not have asked for anything more. The staff was so friendly, polite and professional. I never thought something so beautiful would be possible with my budget, but they proved me wrong and went above and beyond anything I could have imagined!! I look forward to many more events and dinners here. Thank you Gennaro's for such an amazing night!!!

The place is a really good date spot. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. My friend and I came here without a reservation because we were craving Italian and this was the best rated place in the area. We ordered the Tonnarelli alla Capricciosa and Fettucine alla Ghiotta. Both were amazing. For wine, we got the Chianti and Zinfandel -- don't remember which Zinfandel, but it was a bit spicy. Overall, a great experience. It's quiet enough to actually carry on a conversation and the tables weren't so close to each other that you felt like you were intruding on your neighbors' meals

ideally suited for the 'over 70' crowd, this neighborhood italian does offer fine dining but appears lost in a time capsule, relying on its glory days while stubbornly refusing to infuse this tired menu with new items, or to even consider a make over to decor better left to the 1970s.
