    DiscoverOur Story

    “It has been many months in the making: building and decorating, as well as testing dishes to meet my customers palettes said John Gambino, Executive Chef/Owner. We aim to bring back relaxed meals, the way dining used to be. The recipes are ones I grew up with in New York and have served in the Hamptons of Long Island, events at the Shoe, and right here in Pickerington. I’m thrilled to be opening my newest restaurant back here and am looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.”

    Genuwine’s features a strong Italian menu along with non-Italian and seafood entrees balancing the offerings. The full-length copper bar features wines, a variety of craft taps and bottled beer, and a nice variety of sip-ables. Flights of your favorites can be arranged- if your preference is beer, wine or bourbon. Whether you want an intimate dinner, date night, ladies night, or family outings, Genuwine’s can accommodate. Genuwine’s provides the caliber of the city, with the convenience of the suburbs. Talk to us about hosting your group or event. Reservations are welcomed.
