We ate here four times this summer . Reservations are a must. Centrally located , easy to find on Route 28. Small and semi intimate. They sunset special is hard to beat. We will be back again next summer for sure.

Best Italian food I have ever tasted! I had lasagne and creme brûlée for desert and was heaven . Staff were so friendly and service absolutely fantastic. Wish I had a restaurant like this in the uk!

We showed up late in the evening on a Saturday without a reservation and they were somehow able to seat us. I highly recommend making a reservation! We both loved our entrees and highly recommend the spinach ravioli. Great Caesar salad too, with anchovies of course.

You'll find standard chicken parmigiana at Gerardi's, but there's also a great selection of upscale-style dishes worth going for. Certainly an above-average Italian place for the Cape. We had their garlic bread focaccia, which came in small squares - you can probably skip it and go with their house bread (free) instead. Our young daughter had penne and meatballs off... More

I must preface by saying I am a self-proclaimed food snob, excellent cook and I frequent the north end of Boston's Italian restaurants. Gerardi's Cafe was impressive. I was actually jealous watching my husband and son gobble up the lasagna and proclaim that it was better than mine. There is a real Italian chef in that kitchen. The marinara sauce... More

My daughter and son-in-law stopped here for dessert and drinks one night and urged us to try it for dinner. So glad they did! We now have a wonderful little Italian place to frequent on the Cape! Gerardi's is very small and intimate, and has a very old school Italian restaurant feel. The service was excellent, the food was just... More

A very elegant, friendly, and exceptionally high quality food. Had dinner there with my wife. They found a great table for us and we had a great dinner. I give this family owned place wonderful cudos for having built a great restaurant.

We arrived at 4:30 & there was only 1 other couple there. The girl asked if we had a reservation & was flustered when we told her we didn't. She had to go ask someone if we could be seated. Weird. But once done, we had a very nice dinner (gnocchi w/meatballs & pasta carbonara) w/1 appetizer & 2 drinks... More

Hadn't thought about Italian while vacationing on the Cape. But after a number of average meals at area restaurants we decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did. Best meal I've had in a long time. Everyone's meals were great, the bread was fantastic and the desserts were unbelievable. We come to the cape every year... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Gerardi's Cafe. We were able to take advantage of early bird specials that included 3 courses for only $23! Although this is not the best italian food we've ever had, I'd say it is probably one of the best in the immediate area and the staff is friendly. Get the Risotto cakes which are... More
