Excellent meal! Had the lasagna which was outstanding. Small place so make reservations but worth it! Waitstaff was very good too.

Food was delicious. Our first time here. Their website indicated that wait staff wear masks. No masks, absolutely no social distancing, and the restaurant was jammed. Couldn’t get out fast enough. Too bad.

My husband and I loved this little Italian restaurant. We had the Lasagne and Gnocchis with sausage and meatballs. The red sauce was delicious on both. The chef prepared an amazing fall salad with lettuce, warm squash , nuts and Gorgonzola cheese with a balsamic...dressing. I highly recommend it if it’s offered. We finished with a frozen limoncello desert. The dining room has a great atmosphere and our server Pam gave excellent service. The place was busy with many regulars and a lot of take out. It was easy to see the locals love this place.More

What a great place! Be sure to get reservations as it is a busy place. The food was top rate from the dipping oil to the lemon gelato. Our server, Alex, was personable and hard working! Absolutely a great place!

I guess I need to say "all in all" it is a superb restaurant. Among 6 of us, all friends, my meal was the problem so I will stick to that. Be clear, everyone else was very happy with their meal and the service was...very good. Now, on to my meal. I was in the mood for beef and as all beef eaters will confess, when you need beef, you need beef. There was a very nice filet mignon dish offered that evening so that was my focus. I started with an appetizer comprised of their meatballs. They came in a rich tomato gravy that appeared to have simmered for hours. All and all it was pretty good however I have had somewhat better meatballs but they were acceptable and I did enjoy them. When my meal arrived, it was a beautiful presentation with this large filet mignon sitting atop a bed of mashed potato's surrounded by a complementary sauce. The first thing I noted when I cut into the filet is it felt tough; it was either tough or I had an extremely dull steak knife. Not being deterred and thinking it was the knife I continued. I noted when I cut off the first piece, the texture of the meat I was looking at seemed contrary to any filet I have ever eaten and that is a lot. When I tried to chew it, it also did not feel like a filet so I cut a second piece and passed it to my wife who, after eating it said it is tough and dry reinforcing my unspoken belief. With that I called the waitress over and told her to take it away explaining my issue. She was very cordial and asked if they could make me another one to which I answered I had no confidence it would be any better than the one I was returning. She offered to make something else in its place however, being with 5 other people I was not about to make them wait while another meal was prepared and they were finished. The waitress did make one comment stating "no one else has complained" that I thought was a bit "cheeky" as I really didn't care about other people only that my $40. fillet was not acceptable. I will not question whether it was a fillet or not given their superb reputation so I have chalked this up to an inferior cut of fillet sold to the restaurant. I know nothing about their purveyor of meat however I would think a trained chef, when selecting meat, should be able to discern the quality they are buying. I will go back the next time I am in the area but will stick to the old go-to safe items such as chicken parm and the like. I hate to play it safe, as I like to try new things, but when spending $40. for a fillet I expected much more.More

It has been quite a while since I have written a review mainly because there was nothing that caught my attention. Not so at Gerardi's. The cuisine northern Italian and expertly prepared. Flavors are layered and complex. This is not your ordinary pizzeria food. Service...was attentive and professional. If you are on Cape and are looking for an exceptional Italian experience, this is the place.More

The food was amazing and our server, Alex, provided great service. We had the meatball appetizer with the cheesy garlic bread to start. The linguine with clams in the white sauce and the pasta diavolo was all wonderful. Highly recommend this place with great food...and excellent service!More

I read the reviews and figured it was worth a try. My husband and I consider ourselves foodies and this food certainly did not disappoint. I had the chicken parm and my husband had the shrimp scampi. Both were extremely good!!! Our server Alex was...tremendous as well!! Of course we needed to have dessert. WOW....the German chocolate cake and the cannolis were superb!! We will for sure be back every time we are in the area. Don’t hesitate to try this place....you will be beyond happy you did!!!!More

We wanted to get away from the seafood tonight so this was a wonderful choice. Made a 600 reservation and glad I did. Parking lot was full. We had the chicken parm and Lasagna. Both were amazing. Spring for the homemade pasta with the chicken...parm. it's worth it. Our server Sean was amazing handling many tables. His reccomendation for the German chocolate cake was out of this world delicious!!!More

I have not been to the restaurant for an early bird dinner but I am sure a call to them will give you the information you need.

Not sure but I think they might have had some things on the menu marked gluten free. I'd call, they're friendly.
