Gerardo had some very delicious Pizzas and appetizers!
Also the prices were very good, so it's 100 times better then going to the Pizza Hut.

Also very interesting to see the career of Gerardo with so many different restaurants he worked in before he started his own restaurant. He's got quite a nice business card of restaurants in the US and Europe!

The wood-fired pizza, Italian Mac & Cheese, and antipasto salad are highly recommended! The staff was efficient & friendly, both on a busy Friday night, and laid-back Sunday lunch. Definitely worth the stop either on the way to Rim Country, or while heading up 87 to Strawberry / Pine. Gerardo's is just past the Wal Mart on the left side if you are heading north.

Was in Payson this past week and this was one of the restaurants we dined at. This was our favorite hands down. Gerardo speaks with you personally. The food and service were topnotch. There were four in our party items ordered were: Chicken and vegetables, seafood pasta special, butternut squash ravioli, bruschetta, meat, cheese and olive platter, two bottles of Chianti. Gerardo treated us to some fantastic desserts. Cannoli, Tiramisu and a special dessert pizza. All homemade top quality items. This restaurant is your best bet in Payson by far.
