Welcome to Gennaro's 5 North Square, located in Boston's historic North End. The restaurant is under the management of Gennaro, who brought you the Caffe Vittoria,Florentine Cafe and Stanza dei Sigari. Gennaro's is located at 5 North Square the oldest square in America, a quite retreat located steps from busy Hanover Street. With it's cobblestone streets and gas lamposts, North Square is one of the most romantic spots in the North End and Boston. The cuisine at Gennaro's is traditional Italian home cooking with fresh seafood specialties served daily. We would love to have you visit us at Gennaro's and look forward to serving you!

"We had made advanced reservations for my birthday and our upcoming anniversary. We were a bit disturbed by the lack of professionalism from the greeting staff. We arrived early and were told that this was good because they were overbooked. We felt like we were under the watchful eye of the front line staff, wondering how quickly they would hurry us along. Being near the door as people milled in and out did not give us the intimate and celebratory atmosphere we had hoped for. We felt like just another party of four. The server seemed to hover. We enjoyed our meals but it isn't likely we will return since we have had better dining experiences in several other North End restaurants. We ended up going elsewhere for dessert and coffee."

Specializing in All-Italian cuisine, we have been serving Worcester County for over 30 years. Our wine list features over 26 wines by the glass. Try one of our daily Chef's Specials or something from our traditional menu. From Wild Mushroom Ravioli, Apricot Glazed Salmon, Veal Parmesan or Brick Oven Pizza, there is truly something for everyone. Hosting a special event, our 'Amici Room' is the perfect space for hosting private events. We also offer catering to local businesses or right to your home.

"We have dined once there before when a local liquor store hosted a wine-pairing dinner. We enjoyed it so much we decided to return. We were not disappointed. The bartenders are friendly and efficient, the cocktails are delicious and not overpriced, and the entrees and specials are fresh and imaginative. We truly enjoyed our evening and would highly recommend Arturo's to friends and family. We look forward to returning again soon - perhaps for my birthday in a few weeks!"

"We decided to take advantage of Restaurant Week as the last time this was offered we had a fabulous dining experience. This time everything was very good but not excellent: steak was cooked to perfection and the service was fantastic. Our disappointment was the overall Restaurant Week menu choices. Mashed potatoes were great and the asparagus was very good also, but the dessert was just okay. The wine we selected for $35 (Snap Dragon Cab) apparently is sold for $5 a bottle according to our app. It was good but never opened up, which to us made it overpriced for the value it offered. We would return again, but only if the menu offered better wine and dessert selections during Restaurant Week."
