Benvenuti a tutti!

The Genovese family opened their first restaurant, Genovese Steak House, in Santa Ana, California in 1947. We reopened as Ristorante Genovese in 1984 in Orange, California. From the beginning we have been family owned and operated. We have dedicated ourselves to bring you only the finest, freshest ingredients from day one. Come taste our distinctive Italian cuisine, made to order, prepared in traditional Sicilian combinations. 

Whether you choose seafood, chicken, beef, or pasta you will experience the most authentic and delicious Italian food around. Our delectable cuisine, friendly service, and a funky-fun atmosphere has made us one of the most memorable and favorite restaurants in town for over 25 years.

Meet the owners, Al, his daughter Toni, and their granddaughters Jacquie and Brigette. Meet our dedicated Manager Steve, who has been with us for over 20 years! Our servers are Grant and Laura, bartenders are Greg and Anton. All have been with us near or more than 10 years. Our Chef Roberto has been with us for 18 years. Lastly, there is me, Toni Genovese, I over see everything
