Gennaro's Lounge

2598 S. Broadway Denver, CO 80210 | South Denver | 303-722-1044

Location Description:

Gennaro's has been a low-key, red-sauce, neighborhood Italian joint for more than fifty years. Separated from its companion bar by a bank of windows (you can also order off the menu in the bar), the dining room has just a few tables with red-checked cloths, as well as a view of the kitchen cooking up pizza and pasta. But while the place is small, the menu is large: Appetizers range from bruschetta to calamari, there are Italian-inspired soups and salads, and pasta dishes include lasagna, spaghetti and baked ziti. The hand-tossed pizzas are all made to order and topped with anything you can can think of. But the real winner here is the calzone, a massive portion that's enough for two, stuffed with your choice of items from the pizza-topping list. Order one of five Deschutes beers on tap, or a cocktail made with any flavor of vodka imaginable (bubble gum, anyone?) from one of the congenial, no-bullshit bartenders. And Gennaro's isn't just an Italian restaurant and bar; it's also a coffee shop that opens at 10 a.m.
