The food here is made in-house. It's very good. It's pricey though. According to husband, pizza was best wood-fired pizza he's had.

This was the first meal in a new home. We missed out traveling through here on Mondays when they are closed. But lots of people mentioned them. The menu is not large. There are good options on it.

Between the four of us, we had lasagna, chicken parmesan, two kinds of ravioli, tiramisu, and cannoli -- all excellent, Service was efficient, attentive but not intrusive. We will definitely return on our next visit to Payson.

We had a great meal and experience at Gerardo's. I got the Baked Ziti with Sausage and added mushrooms. My husband got the Shrimp Scampi. Both were delicious. The yeast rolls are simply amazing! Very pleased with our visit. Service was quick and friendly.

We had an excellent Italian dinner last night at Girardo's Bistro in Payson Arizona. All of our portions were large and the flavors were excellent. A true traditional Italian restaurant in this nice little town. The lasagne portion I had was double what I usually would see at most Italian restaurants and it was absolutely delicious. Everybody else was very... More
