We had a lunch here and ordered an appetizer and few main courses. The meals were average and really expensive. We have lobster ravioli and Squid inked pasta with octopus and squid. They were good. The house wine was OK but it was $12 a glass. The 2 dinners and 2 glasses of wine came to $102.

I brought my family (of 7) here several times before and not once have we given a complain about anything. Their service and their food is amazing. The waiter their always makes sure that we are never missing anything, I've recommended some of my friends (from Florence, Italy)over to that restaurant and they compare it a lot to the food...

I'd been here once before and had a great meal but today we had extremely slowly service (no explanation was offered) and mediocre food. After waiting an hour for our food, it arrived overcooked and lacked flavor. Everything was off, we had to tell them that a small basket of bread with 4 or 5 slices was inadequate for 7... More

The food was great. I had the chicken parmigiana, it was a bit salty for my liking but it was still a great dish overall. The wait staff was excellent, very courteous, and attentive.

We've been to Gerbasi twice....highly recommend. It's a go to spot when on Arthur Avenue. I'm a Staten Island girl and know my Italian food.

We visit Arthur Ave from upstate a few times a year. We have eaten at other restaurants on the Ave before. However, none of them are as good as this one. Food is superb, and service is exceptional. Wait staff anticipates our needs and we never have to ask for anything. They are professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. The owner visits... More

Ten of us stopped here for lunch yesterday after visiting Fordham. This restaurant was recommended by one of the people in our party. Gerbasi's is very nice, clean with a welcoming atmosphere with soft Italian music in the background. The wait staff was very attentive and took the time to explain each special, describing all the ingredients. We had the... More

There are so many options on Arthur Ave and we wandered in here by accident after our fave pizza spot nearby was closed. We had 2 out of town guests with us and sat down for a bottle of wine and nice dinner together. My friend said she felt like she was in a NYC movie in the ambiance. They... More

We walked across 6 or7 blocks from the subway on a very hot and humid day having heard about how good Arthur St was. We were invited into the Gerbasi by a very friendly waiter who assured us we would have a good meal. He wasn't wrong. I choose the asparagus and shrimp wrapped in Parma ham with diced raw... More

First, the hours need to be corrected, at least for Saturday. We got there just after 11:30, but did not open until noon. However, the service was very attentive (we were the only ones there) and our water glasses were never empty. The bread was fresh and delicious. There was a huge selection of specials besides the menu. Out of... More
