This restaurant is a find! We were headed towards another restaurant in town and saw their sign and decided to try this one. As stated by another review, the atmosphere, is not fancy, simple tables, open kitchen area, the owner is a server. The food was just so good, we tried the special bruschetta (artichoke and tomato) very flavorful. Then... More

Dinner with my son and a few of his high school friends. Staff was very friendly and prompt. When I was here in October 2013 service very slow. Food quality and portions were very good if not a bit too large even for the teenaged boys. We had a variety of appetizers and mains, all of which were tasty and... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant on October 16, 2015. The smell of Italian cooking was coming out the door onto the sidewalk. We were absolutely surprised and thrilled with the personal service by the owner, wife, and the best tasting Italian food, bar none, cooked by the husband from Italy, who has been cooking since he was...

We were told by many this restaurant was the best in town. Perhaps it was great for St. Johnsbury. Met some great folks dining next to us, had a wonderful visit, but all I can say about food is "passable".

We have been fans of Cantina de Gerardo ever since we visited their first location in Littleton. It was a ramshackle establishment (the new location is much nicer) but the food was out-of-this-world good. I had a dish called zingarella which I've never seen anywhere else but I would climb mountains to have it again. Luckily I don't have to.... More

This is a small, Italian restaurant on the main street of old St. Johnsbury, Vermont. There are simple tables and nothing like fancy dining, but the food is wonderful. I had ziti Romano and my friend had another pasta. I haven't tasted anything so good in a long time, but don't expect romantic ambiance. Also, the service can be slow... More

Gerardo's provides a wonderful Italian dinner in an unlikely location. The chef has a Boston North Side background, and prepares delicious tasting and beautifully presented meals of a quality comparable to, or superior to, Italian restaurants in big cities in which I have lived, including New York City and Boston. Gerardo and his wife are a delightful and entertaining couple,... More

We stopped in St Johnsbury for lunch on our way to Quebec City. We shared a veggie calzone that was fabulous. Really fabulous! Even the side salad was better than most. Truly Italian from Boston's North End. Just don't be in a rush. No Mexican food here.

If you want to see the good side of an Italian family restaurateur; this is your place. We crossed over to Vermont from Quebec and asked the border control officer to recommend a place to eat. He categorically recommended this place. The lady who greets and serves is the owner with her husband who cooks. Another young server was their... More

My very Sicilian New Yorker boyfriend KNOWS good Italian food. He came here years before I knew him but always raved about a place he went to in St. Johnsbury but he couldn't remember the name. He'd know it when he saw it, small place, on the main street. However, somehow we missed it our first day in the area.... More
