Our Restaurant

My Culinary journey began in 1982 when I relocated to South Jersey to attend Stockton State College. I needed a part time job to help with tuition so I worked at a local restaurant as a dishwasher and prep cook; this where the love of creating a great meal began!

I am Joseph DeGennaro or Chef Joe if you like! I attended the Academy of Culinary Arts. In 1987 I decided to relocate and train in the United States Virgin Islands working at two major hotel brands where I created menu items using many different types of cuisines.

I met and married my beautiful wife while in the Virgin Islands and in 1998 after 10 years of working and creating menu items in the Caribbean, we decided to return to South Jersey where I became the Executive Chef at the historic Renault Winery.

A place of my own has always been a dream of mine. I have travelled and have worked at some of the most beautiful places on earth. I have created menus for dignitaries and millionaires for their businesses and social functions. I have created menus that are simple and others that have great international flair to please a wide range of clients. I am a Jersey boy, and I am home. I have honed my skills and perfected my art. I am an artist who creates a unique dining experience often, mixing cuisines to enhance the dining experience.

To have a local restaurant and to be involved in the community which I live has always been my dream!! Gennaro’s Italian Grille and Pizzeria, formerly, Mario’s, is the perfect place for me to introduce a contemporary dining experience along with every day staple items that have sustained the former business for more than a decade. This is a place where families come together to enjoy amazing food; where we care about your dining experience and where we charge affordable prices to encourage you to join us for a meal again and again.

Welcome to Gennaro’s! Where we welcome you as family and a great meal is always served!
