Located on 9th and Massachusetts Street in Downtown Lawrence, KS you’ll find Genovese. Opened in 2007, Genovese blends Northern Italian cuisine with local produce.
I decided to go for lunch. Like most places, Genovese does offer bread while you wait for your food (which is always my favorite part, not going to lie).
I chose the spinach and fresh ricotta ravioli. Seriously, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Absolutely delicious and the portion was perfect for lunch. I’m unsure if the sizing is different for dinner, but I could see it being not enough to fill up the average person. (Also note that the bowl is abnormally large, so it looks like a teeny-tiny portion but is average for lunch!)
Also pictured is the Italian sausage and butternut squash soup. The butternut squash was not very good, but the sandwich made up for it. The sandwich is composed of peppers, caramelized onions, Dijon mustard and cheddar cheese.
All in all, I’d give Genovese a 7/10.
