Were passing through Payson and didn't want to eat too heavily since all we were doing was sitting in a car all day, so an Italian restaurant wasn't the most logical, but there we were. Shared an eggplant parmigiana and an antipasto salad and the...More

I visited Gerardo's with my daughter and son-in-law. We ordered the delicious crab cakes for our appetizer. My daughter and I each had the rich, creamy, lobster macaroni. My son-in-law had melt-in-your mouth salmon. The tiramisu was large enough for three.

The special last night at Gerardo's was Penne Arrabbiata, Just enough spice to make it an amazing and not overpowering dish. Loved it. Maybe it should be put on the Menu as an everyday meal selection?

My husband and I drive up from Phoenix just to eat at Gerardo's. Their food is just like the Italian food we enjoyed in Little Italy in New York City, and Arthur Ave. in the Bronx. My favorite is the eggplant Parmigian. My husband tries...More
