Delicious wood fired pizza, great Ceasar, reasonably prices wine list and Gelato. All with friendly service from the owner's wife. Really enjoyed it. There is not much in Payson but Gerado's really fit the bill. Definitely worth a stop!

This restaurant was highly recommended. The prices were high, the food was just okay and the chairs were notbcomfortable. Service was slow. No plan to return.

Gerardos is a nice place, food is good, better to go at lunch as the prices increase dramatically at dinner for the same thing you might have ordered for lunch!!

Stopped in for a late lunch with a friend, food and service was good. Had to wait for rain to slow down, and felt no pressure to free the table.

The food and service were great. The atmosphere...think remodeled Pizza Hut. My mac & cheese with bacon was the best I've ever had and my husband liked his lasagna (I tried his - it was good, but my mac & cheese was GREAT!). We finished...More
