What You'll Get

The sudden onset of hunger pains is the leading cause of unfinished novels, canceled duels, and tied soccer matches. Today's deal employs delicious Italian fare to cut down on unfinished business: for $20, you get $40 worth of cuisine and drinks at Gencarelli's Cucina in Montclair, across the street from the Wellmont Theatre. Gencarelli's is closed on Mondays.

Winner of the 2010 Taste of Essex for Best Overall Dish and Best Appetizer, Gencarelli's Cucina features a robust menu of fine Southern Italian cuisine that features both authentic family recipes and trailblazing new tastes. Traditionalists can tickle their taste buds with the Sunday Gravy ($21.95), a rigatoni dish topped with meatballs, sausage and homemade marinara, or the linguine with shrimp ($11.95), a lunch menu favorite both for its rich savor and its knowledge of state capitals. Executive chef Marcell Veiga, scheduled to appear on the Food Network's Iron Chef America, bends time, space, and culinary convention with his Rib Eye Gorgonzola, ($26.95), a 14-ounce steak topped with roasted potatoes and sautéed spinach. The Toscana Parma ($21.95), composed of thinly sliced eggplant and zucchini parmigiano, is one of several options available for vegetarians.

Gencarelli's Cucina is owned by Debbie Gencarelli and her daughter, Nicole, an interior designer who planned the elegant, rustic décor herself, down to the exposed brick, subdued lighting and tasteful frescos of a fish eating a mermaid eating a Kit Kat. Live music plays every Sunday, and in the spring and summer diners can enjoy an outdoor patio. A municipal lot just behind Gencarelli's on Glenridge Avenue makes parking easy.


User reviews on Montclair EATS give Gencarelli's Cucina a 4.5-star average and six Yelpers give it an average of 3.5:
