Scallops in bacon, veal Marsala, prosciutto Parmesan, garlic and spinach tortellini... and that's just lunch. She serves, he cooks, they banter in the open kitchen. Family, not at all fancy, and fantastic. You know a meal will be good when the bread and olive oil are showstoppers.

We came upon this restaurant by chance while travelling through Vermont - and what a delight. Rather like entering a wee villa run by a lovely couple. Our lunch was a treat and we choose the light fare having an antipasta and a pizza. Of course they brought the delicious bread and favoured olive oil first and we were treated... More

Wow, really great food for a party of 5! Friendly service, nice atmosphere, good wine. BUT, save your pennies - very expensive!

If you are looking for authentic Italian Cuisine served in a welcoming and homey atmosphere, Cantina Di Gerardo is the place to go. The food is as good as it gets. Gerardo and Devora, the owners, chef, server, and managers are the salt of the earth. You feel as if you are being welcomed into their home. As they do... More

Ate here on a Thursday evening. Place was full. One lady waiting tables, plainly overstretched, but said they were busy every night. We had booked for 7pm, which seemed to make no difference: we were seated about 7.15, and order taken at 7.30pm. Things speeded up after that. Food OK - heard some guests describe theirs as "awesome" - but... More

We went to this restaurant twice during a three night stay in St Johnsbury. It is true that the interior of the Cantina may not be to some people's taste but it is the food that is the draw. Everything is freshly cooked with many ingredients home grown. The menu is varied with influences from Napoli and other regions of... More

Party of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our meal, atmosphere, and our hosts. Everyone had something different and it was our first time there. Ample portions! Limone Chicken so tender, scampi not too garlicky, and loved the red italian beer! Nice to have your chef and hostess stop to chat about your meal. Will go again to try pizza and maybe a... More

This is St. J so we thought Italian might be a reach. We were pleasantly surprised. The best part - it is all family. Dad cooks, son-in-law serves and preps. Daughter was in front of the house. We read reviews that indicated some gruff treatment. These people are great. Parmigiana dishes were serve "en skillet". The eggplant and chicken were... More

Two couples enjoying each other's company, 1 for 38 yrs, the other 39 yrs. The food is served on a frying pan, and the amount is too much to finish. Nice side salad and bread with meal. House red and white come in large full glasses. The desert tiramisu is home made, take it home have it later. Price points... More

Had a really nice meal - food is cook to order and family works hard to ensure you are enjoying your meal and experience. They let my mom taste several wines to help her make a choice, for example. Portions are generous. Service could be slow if they are busy - that is the only negative. We have eaten here... More
