A friend and I saw this restaurant on the Food Network, we recently moved from NY and we’re hungry for a good pizza and drove 20 miles. The place is nice, the staff is very friendly, and the food is good however nothing exceptional. A little overpriced.
Great italian food- I loved the pizza. Make sure you try the house special dressing on your salad!
I've taken more pleasure out of gas station pizza.
I had heard good things about this place. I read the reviews and they were mixed, some people were very unsatisfied. I figured it was perhaps jealous competition due to the restaurant being around 50+ years. I should have listened. I don't understand how this restaurant was featured on TV. I don't even understand how it won best pizza in Cleveland 2008. While Cleveland isn't the land mark of pizza, there certainly are way better pies around here. This was truly disappointing and expensive.
We went last weekend hoping to get one of Cleveland's supposed best pies. The sauce is nothing to write home about. The salad was more cheese than lettuce. 50+ years and the salad isn't even together? We ordered the sicilian style pizza which we were told had romano cheese on it. When it came out, it appeared to be the powdered form of TABLE parmesan cheese. That's right, the cheese they have sitting next to the red pepper flakes at every pizza parlor. There really is no excuse for a pizza so underwhelmingly average, when a place has been around for over five decades to perfect it. You may be saying to yourself, what a mean review. That I am being too harsh. Have your opinions. Obviously Geraci's was doing something right at some point or else they wouldn't have lasted 50 something odd years. Whatever good pie they had, has left the building. I don't believe the pizza they served us today was the same as it ever was. But hey, our server was nice.
not any where near the best. I don't know what all the hoopla is about this restaurant. A friend and I went there today and drove about 20 miles to get there, passing many good restaurants along the way. We ordered a pizza with extra sauce (which the waitress must have totally forgot or they are pretty skimpy to start with) pepperoni and double sausage. They sausage was very very bland so we wound up with a whole lot of blandness on our pizza. I also ordered a side of meatballs having heard about their "great" home made meat balls, they were average, that's about all.....just average, and the sauce with the meatballs was not any better then most jar sauces at the store. All in all a very disapointing experience and we will not be back. Save your time and money and go to your favorite pizza restaurand as that will be much better.
Best pizza in Cleveland. Only 2 negatives about this place they only accept cash and the decor is a out of date. This is the best pizza in Cleveland IMHO.
Worth a Drive!. Geraci's has the second best pizza that I've ever eaten. It's the best pizza I've had in Ohio! Everytime I'm in the area, I'll be eating at Geraci's. Prices are average, service was average, pizza was exceptional, space was very limited. I ordered the regular style crust, but next time I'm going with thin crust, the regular was too thick for me. Similar in crust thickness to pan pizza. Geraci's is worth a drive! The sauce is to die for, amazing!!! Bring cash, be patient, and you'll be rewarded!
Fantastic Service and Food. We have been wanting to go to Geraci's for a couple of years. Finally made it tonight. It was awesome! The food was great (try the hot pepper appetizer ... yikes!). The service was great (must have been 5-6 people worked our table, but not in an overwhelming way). We're going here every visit to Cleveland from now on
Great Food. The food was excellent and service was wondeful. We had fried ravioli as an appetizer which was delicious and pasta with meatballs in meatsauce as our entree. The customer service we received was excellent, though in the past I have heard horrible things about the management and owners so was prepared to deal with that, but did not witness anything while I was there that evening. I would recommend this restaurant to others in the mood for quaint quiet dining and good italian food.
Best Pepperoni Pizza Ever. I never use the acronym OMG, but I'm using it here. I grew up in Cleveland and used to go to Geraci's Pizza with my friends in high school. I moved away when I was a junior in college and haven't been back to Cleveland in over 20 years! My son now has a job outside of Cleveland and the first place we went to when we got him settled was Geraci's. The pizza is just as great today as it was 40 years ago--yikes am I that old? There's something about the combination of a certain kind of pepperoni, the sauce, and the crust--OMG it is amazing. I ran into Mrs. Geraci at the restaurant and she was just as sweet as she was when I was in high school. It's so nice to know and support a family run business. OMG.
I've been going to Geraci's for 50 years because we really enjoy their pizza.Two days ago I ordered a small pepperoni
pizza for lunch. It had the wafer thin pepperoni on it like you would find at Zeppe's. I called to comment on my displeasure and was told by Prune Face Frannie that if I didn't like it don't come back again.She then hung up on me.Mrs.G and her older two daughters are delightful,but they should not allow Prune Face Frannie to be around customers.(no wonder she can't keep a husband).
