(Episode: DV0713H)


...and from our favorite reviewers: YOU!

"This pizza would instantly become a top 5 pie for me. I have had some of the best from NYC and New Haven, CT and this was right up there with them."


"And the food delicious . Clearly the standards set by the original Geraci's have been maintained ..
Cleveland has many new restaurants with adventuresome menus , but old world style red sauce Italian ( hard to come by these days ) still going strong ..
I had veal piccata with side of spaghetti with the simple red sauce...DIVINE !!"

“I have been eating Geraci's pizza for almost 50 years and it was and remains the best pizza on the East Side.”

Gary S, Trip Advisor

"The best pizza and Italian food in the Cleveland area and surrounding suburbs ! The veal Marsala was excellent as well as the service and ambience. I recommend Geraci's to anybody who appreciates good Italian food."

“Meatballs...Yum!  Chicken Parmesan...yum! It's all yum...the pizza is outstanding. Try it and you will love it. Don't forget the cannoli's, oh my! We drive an hour to dine.”

Rhonda A., Yelp

"Geraci's is a phenomenal family friendly restaurant with fresh, from scratch Italian cooking.   The Eggplant Parmigiana was melting in your mouth delicious. The pizza was phenomenal, and my kids and I loved it so much that we ordered a second pie.  As out-of-towners looking for a food adventure, we are certainly happy that we went to Drive-ins Diners and Dives hotspot."
Tracy W., Yelp
"This is a terrific pizza place. They have a nice variety of very good Italian food as well. The pepperoni pizza is especially delicious, as they use special imported pepperoni. The chicken cacciatore and veal dishes are excellent. Expect well made traditional dishes, not trendy northern Italian dishes. Prices are very reasonable."

"Skip the chain restaurants (a la Olive Garden) and head over to Geraci's for some AUTHENTIC Italian food. The eggplant parm and spaghetti with meat sauce are truly delicious -- excellent, tangy sauce! An appetizer of fried calamari is enough for a full meal for some and very reasonably priced. Portions are extremely generous (we have enough leftovers for another meal and a half!) and the food is very well-prepared."
