Have visited this restaurant 3 times in the last 3 weeks. The food portions are very good and the quality of the food is excellent. The pizzas are very good with the cheese melted into the pizza.

While traveling through New Jersey we decided to stop for an early dinner. I googled restaurants near me, and Villa Gennaros came up. What luck. Nice, traditional Tuscan decor. Excellent selection on the Dinner menu. Nice wait staff, friendly environment, clean. The food...the Quattro Fommagio was the best I have ever had. Made from good cheeses, salty, smokey and a...

This restaurant is located in Edison. We have ordered take away on more than one occasions and they serve some really good Italian food! I have tried their Fettucini Alfredo, Spaghetti and Chicken Piccata.

Villa Gennaro's is a solid Italian restaurant. They have decent chicken parm and penne a la vodka. Wait staff is decent and the menu has a lot to offer. There are daily specials as well. It is a BYOB which is fantastic. Prices are slightly higher due to BYOB.

Had dinner at Villa and on balance it was good but nothing special. The chicken Picatta was very bland as was the Francese . We also had the mussels special that evening which frankly did not smell that great. Pizza's look good but that's about all I can say.

Date night at another local restaurant was a good choice. Service was polite and efficient. Dinners of veal marsala and veal Toscano with veggies instead of pasta. It is a BYOB restaurant so bringing your favorite wine is ideal. On our list as a place we will return

I had previously rated this restaurant five stars - and had eaten here about every two weeks since it opened. We always enjoyed the super-sized, delicious salad, the bread and the veal or chicken parm. However, after our last visit taking two friends along with us, we'll only return if it's for a cheese steak sandwich. It was noisy, as... More
