THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED San Gennaro Cafe Restaurant Review

: We challenge you to remain undecided after perusing San Gennaro's extensive menu of familiar Italian dishes. It hits all the favorites with enough offbeat names thrown in to keep it interesting. After starting with Maryland crab ravioli fritti, or roasted peppers, how about pasta Brian or pasta Brooklyn? The former finds penne sautéed with mushrooms in a garlic-white wine sauce with chicken, the latter, sausage, peppers and onions in a tomato sauce over linguine. There's also risotto, homemade ravioli and a healthy selection of chicken, veal, seafood and meat options. This location is somewhat larger than its counterpart in Brentwood (as the $10 per bottle wine list in Brentwood inflates here to $12 per bottle.) The supper club vibe comes from the pianist featured Monday through Friday, and a vocalist crooning Frank Sinatra tunes on Fridays and Saturdays. R & B is one of the sounds of Sunday. Also located at 140 S. Barrington Pl., Brentwood, 310-476-9696.
