My wife and I were hoping to find a local restaurant in Payson that would offer more than just an average meal. What we found at Gerardo's was just that, the quality and selection would easily fit into a Scottsdale old town chefs restaurant. We ordered the Greek pizza and we're quite pleased with the flavor a quality of the ingredients. The service was quite good and helpful. The presentation was average and the interior decor could be polished to move this restaurant closer to a five star rating.

Exceptionally clean. Delicious Bruschetta and Parthenon pizza. Staff prompt and pleasant. A welcome pause during a beautiful and scenic drive.

We had dinner her here while staying overnight in Payson. This restaurant is definitely nothing fancy, but it has some unique entrees that you will have trouble finding anywhere else. I had the Italian Mac & Cheese, which is a large baked casserole with chunks of bacon and lots of thick, melted cheese... incredibly tasteful, and definitely worth a try. My wife had the baked lasagna, which didn't have the traditional layers of pasta, but instead had sweet chili peppers baked in, and it was also baked and served in a casserole dish. These entrees would be at home at the finest Italian restaurants, and if the other entrees are like this, it would definitely be worth eating here over and over in order to try them all! The service was friendly and attentive. Look past the rather plain environment, this place is all about the food!
