Gennaro

Had a surprisingly good dinner at Gennaro last night. Since the latest expansion several months ago I noticed that the quality of the service has suferred almost as much as the quality of the food. As a result, we have been enjoying Lisca, across the street for the past several months, but gave Gennaro another chance last night. Overall, very nice. They have added several regular specials to the menu, such as the kale salad, and have generally given the menu an upgrade. As usual, many specials, and last night the char with salad was a wonderful summer entre. Watermelon with feta also a winner. I do note that the upgrade is reflected in the prices.

    That watermelon salad is a real favorite of ours. It's so simple (watermelon, feta, evo, oregano, sea salt), but we've never quite duplicated at home. I'm on an endless search for perfect italian oregano...

      yeah I enjoy that watermelon salad. A few months ago they were using a mild goat cheese rather than feta. Also delicious.

      I enjoy Gennero. Have not been to Lisca, might try that soon for a change of pace.

        Lisca is great - had a great, very reasonably priced (pastas around 13-16) meal a couple weeks ago
