Very Nice Looking Resturant but..................

So I've had many meals here at Geraldo's and have come to the same conclusion....Less is best........provide a smaller entrée list and focus on what the Chef does best. Trying to accommodate all that Italy has to offer as far as cuisine is why it takes so long to get served I'm thinkin. As for... read more

The garlic pizza was excellent, the french onion soup which is apparently usually very good, was unfortunately rather salty. Everyone in our group agrees that although this wasn't the best trip today, we all think Geraldo's deserves a higher rank than it currently has on TripAdvisor, hence the 5 star rank.

Ate dinner here and the food was excellent. I had halibut florentine. Nice salad bar to start and very good portions with entree. Seating is kind of cramped in older section of place. Service decent. Would definitely recommend.

The service was faster than our last visit although, the owner was rude when we asked if she had a tray stand to put our large pizza on. Three of us were seated at a small round table that didn't really have enough room for the pizza and our other plates of food. Anyway, she didn't have a tray stand,... More

The service is slower than any place in town, the food is overpriced, and the salad bar is very limited and right in the traffic flow of the restaurant. The purple onions that they use in the calzones, pizza, etc. are undercooked and so strong that you can hardly eat them. You'll be much happier eating at the Turtle Club,... More

My coworkers and I had lunch here last Friday and it was great. You can order off the menu or you can eat the buffet. They have a great salad bar and offer spaghetti with two different sauces. They also have great garlic bread.

arguably the best italian restaurant in fairbanks. That said don't expect 5 star service. Its a place to get by if you are in fairbanks and we have to remember you're not in a big city or expecting italian in the likes of vancouver. Staff is very pleasant

We love Italian food, but this place was a bit disappointing. I had the lasagna and my wife the spaghetti and both had way too much garlic in the sauce. They do have signs all over the restaurant about garlic so maybe it is there thing. The place looks ok, but the furniture is a bit worn. The service was... More

I ordered my ribeye medium, it was was still mooing, I'll stick with med-well next time. Our appetizer arrived maybe two minuets ahead of our main course.

A wonderful place to eat in Fairbanks! We were amazed at the extent of the menu. The seafood portofino was awesome, as was the veal. The service was excellent...not too hovering. A very good memory of Fairbanks!
