I took my daughter to have dinner at Gero on the first Tuesday in August. Although the food was ok, and the atmosphere was trendy and the service, impeccable, I just do not think it was worth it. I know we sometimes pay a lot for the sake of having an interesting experience, but the price was such a rip... More

Priced at the top end of town, but you get what you pay for here. Excellent food, service to match and great ambience. What a great experience and the staff are to be commended for their service, been a long time since l've seen a team work like such a well oiled team and deliver like this, exceptional. Congratulations management... More

A beautiful understated dining room with white tablecloths, fine cutlery and china, serving delicious fresh food that would be at home in the finest restaurants in Florence. The service was just right, and I think that we were the only tourists there. It's pricy, but worth it.

The restaurant is very well decorated, with confortable chairs and pleasant atmosfere. The pasta is excellent but very expensive for a pasta. The same for the deserts that are awsome but equaly expensive. They have a very good wine selection and the service is perfect. So, this is an excellent option for a business dinner if your company is paying... More

Had a great meal - we were a large group, but the service didn't falter. Would definitely recommend any of their risottos or fish dishes.

Gero is always a very good option - I went there a couple times when i was in Rio - and it has a nice romantic setting for a couples' dinner. The food is always good - daily handmade fresh pasta - and their wine list is very good. Service is very good too.

Our hosts were delightful and the entire evening was memorable. This stunning restaurant is comparable to world class restaurants anywhere in the world. The dining room is beautifully appointed and there is a lovely outdoor area surrounded by trees and greenery, hard to believe that you are in the midst of so much concrete. The service was attentive, the wine... More
