“Perfect food! Amazing and accesible Chef! Al Fresca dining!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Opened in the summer of 2013, Ceraldi is one of the best restaurants we have ever experienced. And an experience it is! Block 2 hours for dinners and be ready for 7 courses of made to order food - the set menu changes with the availability of ingredients - and wine pairings with almost every course.The night that my husband and I were there featured chilled melon soup, arugula salad, , blue fin ceviche, arancini, wild mushroom ravioli, braised short ribs and vanilla bean panna cotta with lavender syrup - and I haven't listed all the ingredients! Perfect food, perfectly prepared, presented and again - just the best experience we had on the Cape this summer!

“Spectacular and unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We were there in August and had the most spectacular evening all the way around. The food was extraordinary and each course was more amazing and unique than the last. This was a dining experience beyond any we have had in P-town and we're eaten our way across town for years. The chef is cooking his heart out and his wife is charming the front of the house. It was a truly special evening of extraordinary and impeccable flavors and presentation, wonderful service, perfect wine pairings, lovely atmosphere, and a just a joy from top to bottom. We can't recommend this enough. But go there first and you may be disappointed everywhere else, so save it and savor it.

“Good but overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

The food was generally good the the chef is using local produce according to the season, the quality of the food was excellent but there was no wow factor, we were 4 people who are cooking on a regular basis one owning a restaurant and we were all on the same page good food but definitely overpriced, the excellent service made up for the meal that that night was rather bland.

“Finest fine dining in P'town or anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Before we headed up to P'town for a weekend beach walking experience we checked Trip Advisor for places to eat and Ceraldi is #1 so I called and left a message hoping for a call back (interesting way to make reservations but it works). It came two days later and we were relieved to have dinner to look forward to on what turned out to be their last weekday for the year - lucky us! When we got to town it was too late to do a beach walk and still be back for the 6:30 seating so we walked from our hotel (by Pilgrim Park) into town and all about (5.5 miles total) so we were ready for our meal. The dining room is open to the air and comfortably accomodates the eager diners. Dinner is a seven course menu which chef Michael Ceraldi changes every day depending on what he finds at local sources so it's all fresh. Chef Michael comes out to welcome his guests and talk about his menu - the porcini mushrooms grow wild in the Parabolic Dunes - who knew (we saw them there two days later as we enjoyed that walk). Each of the seven courses was perfectly prepared, presented and proportioned. We led off with soup, then fennel flan with citrus lobster salad, then an argula salad, followed by a real show stopper mozzarella in carrozza with garden basil, a best ever in my life risotto with Provincetown pear, Great Hill Blue Cheese, thyme and honey (omg!), and then chicken cacciatore with wild mushroom, crispy polenta and kale (which was nothing like cacciatore as I remember it as a child) and then panna cotta with fig umbriaco. It simply doesn't get any better than this and we've enjoyed some fine dining. If you come to P'town (and they're open) you must eat here!

“Wow just wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

We were really lucky to catch the last sitting on the last night. The concept of the pop up using local produce is a lovely one and with only 28 covers it is intimate dining. We chose the wine pairing so were quite merry by the time dessert came. Food was delicious and after seven petite courses we were stuffed and smiling.
