I had the chicken and Swiss sub, he had the spaghetti and sausage. My sandwich was fried, which was not expected and it wasn't described as such on the menu. Would have gotten turkey if I knew. It was piping hot (loved that), but flavorless. The ciabatta bread was nice. He said the sausage and pasta was good. No hot... More

Poised to try Lenny's Pizza, we were convinced by a local that this was "the" place to go. Sadly, we did not share his enthusiasm. Simply put, we have had much better pizza, even from the chains. Something about the pizza was off: the cheese had virtually no taste, the crust was overly chewy, the salad (though fresh) no different... More

I must admit to being quite a fan of this restaurant, but I was blown away on Tuesday 11-15-16 by the Shrimp Scampi.. I don't know who the cook was this night but KUDOS! it was mouthwatering in appearance and tastefully decadent to the palette.

Fantastic local Italian restaurant that has been around forever. Great owners. Excellent dough; fantastic pizzas and salads! They have a full menu but I never try anything else; I am sure all is great.

Have had Genovese's (south) and it was fantastic, also. We ordered the spinach alfredo pizza with the best ham I've ever had, so much flavor in this pizza. Love this place.

Pizza was amazing, perfect crust and toppings were piled high. Staff was friendly but not intrusive. Definitely will go back.

Have dined at Genovese's a number of times. If price, quality and size of portions are important,then this is the place to eat. Normally I order pizza once a week to go....... Best pizza in town.Friendly staff and service is excellent. Highly recommend there Lasagna, but be prepared to take half home.

Have eaten there a few times and it's a good restaurant, though can be quite crowded on a Friday evening. No lounge to wait in, so that's a disappointment. But the wait's worth one's time. Service is good.

Our favorite is the Mona Lisa with fresh tomatoes (have to ask for the tomatoes) John is the best server. He can handle the entire room without difficulty. Been going to this rest. for years.

Best sauce around. Great pizzas and the stromboli is to die for. Not expensive and always a place to sit.
