CANTINA di GERARDO

If the last time you had a great Italian meal was in the North End of Boston, you'll enjoy dining at Cantina di Gerardo, located right in the heart of downtown St. Johnsbury.

 

Although the restaurant offers some of the best, authentic Italian food north of Fenway Park, that is not the only reason diners come back to Gerardo’s.

 

The restaurant fare is considered southern Italian or Neapolitan cuisine, so you will find a wide variety of pasta styles, pizzas and calzones, featuring meats and fish the chef selects himself.

Gerardo has a stove to table format.

So do not be surprised when a steaming hot skillet arrives in front of you.

 

The restaurant also offers a selection of Italian wines to accompany your meal.

 

Gerardo's is a small family run restaurant.

You will not go away hungry at Cantina di Gerardo’s. Owners Devorahe and Gerardo pride themselves on all of their dishes having large portions.
