    Hidden UWS gem that's cash only. Great desserts and always packed. Don't even bother looking at menu, just listen to the list of daily specials that usually contains 10+ things and order from there.

    Very good, authentic Italian food from Sicily. Lamb chops were amazing, pumpkin ravioli also great. Try the cannoli too! Cash only and no reservations but totally worth the wait.

    I didn't read the tips, but I shoulda. BE AWARE - CASH ONLY. Ridiculous for a restaurant like this, considering the big wine list and the entrees all priced over $9.95. But the food is Awesome

    An Upper West Sider's secret, Gennaro is no reservations, no cash and no frills. But its straightforward pastas and main proteins never disappoint at this off-the-cuff dining option. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Super pumped about another upper upper west side dining delight! Kale salad is amazing- not to be missed as is polenta and mushroom app.

    Start with the antipasto and move on to the solidly Italian inspired paste. The entrées are quite generous and offer enough to take home. - Inspector

    So so good. Pasta is homemade and the portion is perfect. One of my favorite italian spots in NYC.

    Try the shared antipasta plate. Best specials. Staff is helpful and friendly, though it is cash only, if you are a regular they remem your name. THAT is why it is so beloved.

    Get the veal shop parmigiana. To die for. Skip the appetizers. Tiramisu is decent.

    Cash only really isn't a big deal. Good wine list and food. Great wait staff and service.

    despite their fancy names, all of their food is from a Betty Crocker cook book.

    If venison is being offered as one of the specials for the night, order it rare without hesitation.

    The housemade pastas are exceptional. The rest are okay. Tiramisu can be hit and miss.

    The free fried olives at the bar are a nice, unexpected treat.

    O lugar tem duas peculiaridades nada boas que são raras em ny: naum recebem cartão e a gorjeta é inclusa na conta. Comida é razoável, não vale o que cobram.
