On July 4, 1981 Joseph and Lisa Genovese opened Genovese's Italian Cafe in Daytona Beach Shores. The business started as a small pizzeria with only 5 tables. Throughout the years they have continually expanded the menu as well as the size of the restaurant.
In March of 1984 the Genovese's opened a second location in the Granada Plaza in Ormond Beach. Both locations cater to the greater Daytona Beach area, from Ponce Inlet to Ormond by the Sea.
On January 1, 2005 we sold our Ormond location to three longtime valued employees, John Olsen, Steve Cornell and Matt Clark. We were confident that they would keep up to our standards.
After almost 35 years we decided that it was time to retire and enjoy ourselves. On January 1, 2016 our original location in Daytona Beach Shores was taken over by another trio of longtime employees. The three are Jay Keegan, Sonny Edwards and Joel Buckley. Their many years of experience give us no doubt that they will continue to serve the community with the same quality of food and service. We have enjoyed all the friendships and great customers we have met throughout the years.
Some of the menu favorites include specialty pizzas, eggplant rollatini, Frutta di Mare, Veal Parmigiana and lobster ravioli.
Genovese's Italian Cafe uses only the freshest ingredients. The dough is made fresh daily, and is hand tossed "New York Style." The delicious sauces for the pasta dinners are all homemade from family recipes. You can definitely taste the difference!
We also offer catering services. Give us a call to cater your next meeting or event!
