A few years ago I lived in Frankfurt, Germany. A great and quite international city, often referred to as «Mainhatten» due to the skyscraper skyline and the city being located at the river «Main»!
Gennaro’s is a very nice restaurant in «Sachsenhausen», which is the name of the city district. Gennaro, an Italian himself, is the owner of the place and he is usually present in the restaurant. He just makes the place wonderful with his open and warm-hearted attitude. It is cosy, but also modern inside, with lots of small nice details, like the napkin holders, that are made of old wine corks with a cord (great to copy!). We have tried various starters, main courses and deserts over the years and all of them were absolutely delicious and can be recommended. My personal favorite are the Tortelloni filled with prosciutto and figs with a lemon-leek-sauce. The fillet of beef carpaccio is a classic. The fish and meat dishes are very good. Usually they have a chocolate fondant (lava cake) as a dessert – but you need to let them know in advance, when ordering the main dishes, that they save one for you! In the summer they have a nice terrace with a few tables outside on their porch.
