We celebrated a birthday at Gerardi's last night. It was the first time we visited this excellent Northern Italian restaurant. The food was excellent. The potato encrusted crab cakes, one of their signature dishes, was outstanding. We had three different pasta dishes - each was fresh and flavorful. This is a family run restaurant. Chef owner, assisted in the kitchen... More

My wife and I and another couple recently had the pleasure of eating at Gerardi's Café in South Yarmouth. Sasha, our server was outstanding. Great personality. As a matter of fact, the entire staff was excellent. We started off with 4 martini's (what a way to start). The salads (warm beet and mushrooms) wet our appetites. The bread was fresh... More

Delicious northern Italian food served by pleasant wait staff in a charming atmosphere. Tends to be crowded but worth the occasional close proximity to other diners. A little pricy but again worth it. Restaurant a bit small so be sure and make reservations.

the aroma as you walked thru the door set the tone for the evening. The service, quality of food and atmosphere exceeded out expectations. We started with the mixed salad, and stuffed mushrooms which I highly recommend. Prior to that the chef brought out a taste of risotto with shrimp which was a tasty treat. A nice loaf of crust...

Great Italian restaurant in South Yarmouth, Cape Cod. Chef owned and he has created a wonderful menu highlighting Italian cuisine with his own twist. Try the crab cakes appetizer. It's yummy!

I have been by this place hundreds of times and never noticed it. However, based on trip advisor reviews we made a reservation Columbus Day weekend. We were seated promptly, server was great - made good suggestions for wine and for dinners. Food was amazing - I had pasta bolognese and it was excellent. Every one of my friends enjoyed... More

Thankfully I live on Cape Cod. I eat at Gerardi's as often as possible. The potato crusted crab cakes are so flavorful - I love the contrast of the crispy potato and the soft crab. These crab cakes are not the typical, nasty little fried hockey pucks that many establishments pass off as edible food! They are divine. Deigo cooks... More

Wouldn't miss eating here when on the Cape. A little piece of the North End on Cape Cod. The food is delicious and the cannoli is the best I have ever had. Great chefs, great service.

We are 1st time visitor to S. Yarmouth, so we relied on Trip Advisor for a good restaurant. We will be heading for Maine and looking forward to lobster, so we decided on Italian this evening. Mine was Shrimp Scampi and my wife had a salad and crab ball appetizer. Everything was excellent with good portions. The server and greeter... More

We always save Gerardi's for our last night of vacation because it is so wonderful and will help us carry the vacation vibe home and back to work. Wish I was there tonight! The food is always spectacular and the wait staff is the best. Been going there since the tiny, 6 table original location and will not ever miss... More
