“4th July Meal”
Reviewed July 5, 2010

Went to Gerardo's for dinner as it was recommended by the receptionist at our hotel. Restaurant was busy but we were seated immediately. Waitress was attentive even though she was really busy. We had the special which was seafood linguini & split it. The meal comes with bread & salad. We ended with Tiramisu which was pretty good & huge - enough for 3. Overall meal was very nice & bill came to $50 for 2 for 1 main course, 2 wines, salad+ bread, desert & tip. We were complety full & satisfied.
A special note the house Chardonnay was excellent.

Good service and food. Lasagna large portion and great taste. Fettachini good a bit bland. Worth a stop

“The wives like it”
Reviewed October 12, 2009

This passes for upscale Italian food in Payson.
Wife liked it, and I paid for it. I prefer mass quantities over "cuisine". so I ate a lot of bread to get stuffed. I take the Queen there for special occasions, and it works like a charm.
Nuff said.

“What a wonderful experience! Food, service, atmosphere! 5 Star!”
Reviewed September 11, 2009

DO NOT miss the Italian style Mac and cheese! Or the deserts! What a treasure this restaurant is. You will enjoy the food and the staff that treats you like family. A great place for a casual lunch or a special celebration.

“Lots of promise, but just not very good.”
Reviewed June 18, 2009

Admittedly we're very spoiled - we lived in Italy for years. So we were really excited about the menu. While it wasn't awful, it wasn't great, either. The food is really heavy and over-sauced. The menu is filled with great ideas and is different from normal Italian joints; unfortunately, it's just not that good.
