Our History

Geno's Italian Restaurant was founded in 1964 by Gene and Rosa Lee Bruscato, out of the desire to offer the best BBQ food around. Over time, people kept coming back to Geno’s for the great atmosphere, and the always delicious Italian cuisine, which became the centerpiece of the restaurant. Currently, Geno’s is run by Phyllis Jean and her brother Frank who have been working in the restaurant since they were young, and they continue to carry on their parent’s traditions ever since.

Stop in with the whole family and see why Geno's Italian Restaurant has been a Monroe community staple for over 53 years.
