The amazingly fresh food that was either picked or caught that morning was delicious. The wine pairings were perfect for the dish and everything came together very nicely. The service was great and the explanations of what was being served and poured was extremely helpful in order to better appreciate the food. I would definitely recommend trying this restaurant.

To say that the food at Ceraldi is excellent or outstanding or splendid is being rather dull, almost boring. Yes, the food is all that - but it is much more. The dinner there is a sensual experience. Every item is exquisitely prepared - and there are many items. They serve a seven course meal for a fixed price, and every course is an artistic creation, oozing in flavor, with great taste. One wonders how they manage it, but manage they do. Their web site is most informative - and accurate - so I won't go into the details of their menu and their work practices. Watch the video on their web site - the place lives up to every bit of what they claim on the web site. And then there are the drinks. Each course is paired with a wine but for the non-alcohol drinker, they have a soft drink for each course. These too are exquisitely prepared, truly works of art, and of course very tasty. And this makes one wonder once again how they manage it all. Ceraldi is truly a one of a kind place, worth every penny you would spend - a fantastic spot on a charming harbor location of one of the most charming towns on Cape Cod. Wellfleet is lucky to have them, and I wish them great success.

We enjoyed 7 wonderful courses paced over 2 1/2 hours. We had the 8:30 seating so if you like to eat late this is the seating for you. The food was exceptional with one course as good as the next. Going with the wine paring further adds to the enjoyment and experience. There is an earlier seating ,5:30, which we will try next time. All and all a great culinary experience.

I had waited all summer for this culinary adventure with whom Chef/owner in my parts would be called a "mench". He spoke with an introduction defining his farm to table practice and described the experience we would partake in with the thoughtful seven course locally sourced wine pairing meal. In retrospect I would summarize the experience as this...beautiful atmosphere with soft romantic relaxing lighting, perfect background music from the wordless tunes to the volume. Clean food and bend over backwards to accomodate all dietary needs. Three hours is a long time to dine....two and half would be perfect. The 8:30 reservation is again at least 30 minutes to late and personally I prefer vodka over wine so not having a full bar is a disappointment. Overall you have to give this place a try, I promise they will not disappoint. But...this is the last weekend of the season so put it on your culinary bucket list for 2018!

Ceraldis is definitely a special occasion type of place. Set in a cozy spot right on the harbor of wellfleet, you dine on seven courses explained to you by the chef, ceraldi and delivered by his expert team. Everything is sourced locally either from the sea, his own garden or from local farmers markets. Should you choose the wine pairings you will discover something you have never had before. For me it was orange wine. I definitely recommend this for a special occasion
