My Wife and I try and go at least once a week. It is a hidden gem near Canyon Lake. It has a fantastic menu, great chef, great waitstaff and great Managment. The food is extremely fresh, delicious and I can honestly say I enjoy it more every single time we go. We take family and friends there often and all rave about the food. We have discovered some great wines they have suggested. It is bar none our favorite restaurant.
We had an excellent dinner last night with friends. Had a reservation and were seated only a few minutes after the time. Our waitress, Shelby, was personable, knowledgeable and served us well. The food was delicious from the Calamari, special Red Snapper entree, eggplant, fruti de mare and the cheesecake! We enjoyed the bread and herbed olive oil and the salads that were also included with the meal. Will be back.
Went back for dinner to celebrate an anniversary of our friends. The food was superb as before. I had the beef medallions and they were excellent. It's one of our favorites.
We love Gennaro's. Going to take my daughter there for her birthday. Beautifully decorated inside and out, with bellisimo landscaping and ambience. Food is also delizioso, delicious for kids and adults. A hill country favorite!
Great service, great food, great prices! Alyssa was our server and she was the sweetest thing. In addition to that, she was also very knowledgeable about the food and drinks on the menu. We will definitely be coming back in the near future!
Not just Texas good, but damn good Italian. Portions are significant and served with grace. Pasta cooked perfectly, sauces authentic and executed perfectly
The moment we arrived with a Hostess seating us in a very nice location by the window being greeted almost immediately by Bill who knew is craft very well. Our bottle of Pinot Grigio paved the way for our delicious meal beginning with the Margherita Pizza, the wonderful breads, our salads and then our wonderful entree meals consisting of chicken parmesan, shrimp Alfredo with mushrooms, delicious lasagna and my rabbit cacciatore. We polished it off with some cappuccino and chocolate layered cake with gelato. Bill was wonderful! when we come back with the rest of my family we will certainly ask for his station.

At the restaurant right now! Awesome! A little gem in the middle of nowhere, but worth the trip. Quaint little Italian spot with authentic dishes. Service was great. Food was a hit. Expectations were low given the joints we passed up to get here, but glad we chose here.
Wow! Wow! Wow! I've ate at many Italian restaurant's but NONE compare to this one! I had the special of the night: Red Snapper with a blueberry reduction and a white lemon sauce with grilled shrimp and shrimp ravioli. The seasoning on the fish was excellent and the lemon sauce took it to another level! The rolls are delicious and their aioli sauce melts in your mouth. We also had the ribeye that was juicy and perfectly cooked. We had the tiramisu cheesecake that was absolutely AMAZING! I've ate at high end italian restaurants but this place puts all others to shame.
What a fantastic off the beaten path, Italian restaurant. The food is always fresh and well prepared, I think everything on the menu is great. Really cool people who always welcome me with open arms. Great wine selection and the key lime cheese cake is amazing! MAKE Reservations!
Best Italian in the area. Surprisingly high quality. Always delicious.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Loved it.
By far our favorite restaurant! We frequently drive an hour one way to have a wonderful meal at Gennaro's and have never once been disappointed. Our only downer is the noise level inside, but the food is so good the noise is easily ignored. The bread, entrees, desserts, cappuccino, ambience, personable staff, landscaping, it's all perfection!! Make a reservation to avoid a wait...popular place.
There are 2 locations- the Canyon Lake location is smaller and you need to make reservations in advance on the weekend- but well worth it! The New Braunsfel location is larger, so little easier to get in at the last minute. Both seem to have the same menu, with several nice additions- mussles is a broth, potatoe dumplings....and an good wine list.
Excellent food in a pleasant setting.
Such friendly staff and great food! We went twice in one weekend 😋
This is THE BEST! Just a few of my favorites are the homemade garlic knots, white sangria, light lemon cream sauce over pasta topped with grilled shrimp, and eggplant Parmesan!
Food excellent, wait staff great. Only complaint was the hostess. We waited 1 hour 45 mins and for the last 30 minutes she kept saying we were next yet hords of people went before us. And several people that seemed to know her came after us yet were seated before. She was a bit out if her element. I think the best strategy would be to go at a less than busy time.
