Restaurant Description

Formerly, Gennaro's Lounge, this place poked its head up on South Broadway in 1951 when Joe Gennaro first opened it. Now it's currently owned by two amazing women who are making their own name with truly authentic Italian dishes created from family owned recipes.

Gennaro's Cafe Italiano is more than just a restaurant or lounge. It brings the best of your coffeehouse creations and lounge atmosphere together in a way that has never been done before in Denver. Not to mention the nightly activities and live events that take place throughout the week.

This place has something to offer for everyone including the best Italian dishes around! Come visit us today and see why we are quickly becoming a local favorite!
