Experience the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont

Cantina di Gerardo

in Downtown St. Johnsbury, VT


If the last time you had a great Italian meal was in the North End of Boston, you'll enjoy dining at Cantina di Gerardo, located right in the heart of downtown St. Johnsbury.


Although the restaurant offers some of the best, authentic Italian food north of Fenway Park, that is not the only reason diners come back to Gerardo’s.


The restaurant fare is considered southern Italian or Neapolitan cuisine, so you will find a wide variety of pasta styles, pizzas and calzones, featuring meats and fish the chef selects himself.


The restaurant also offers a nice selection of exclusively Italian wines to accompany your meal.


You will not go away hungry at Cantina di Gerardo’s. Owners Devorahe and Gerardo Grieco pride themselves on all of their dishes having large portions.

Don’t forget to check out the “Features of the Day” board when you get to the restaurant, as you will find some very delicious dishes that are not on the menu.  MENU

Bring Home the Sauce!

The Cantina di Gerardo is now selling its marinara and pesto sauces.  Visit The Cantina for fresh and authentic Italian sauces made on the premises.


Sauces are currently available for sale only at our restaurant and a few select locations.



"True authentic Italian"

Wow! From the décor, to the music, to the food - this is like being in Italy. The food was served in the pans in which it was prepared. Everything was fresh! The bread was great! The server and chef listened very carefully to all orders.

Authentic Atmosphere and Cuisine

We enjoyed First Night, 2014, in St J's, VT and ate a fantastic meal at this family run, welcoming and delicious restaurant. We were received by a sweet Italian woman holding her 9 month old precious granddaughter while graciously seating and helping everyone enjoy a special dinner out. It reminded me of the small intimate North End restaurant we love where upon each visit you are received as a dear friend. Everything is made to order so special requests are an easy order. Both our meals were wonderful. The dessert was light and perfect, it was the owner/daughter's suggestion and we could not have been happier. I'm not sure if this pleasant experience was simply because it was New Years Eve but we will definitely try this gem again and report back. Trip Advisor

"Foodie Heaven"

We stumbled on this place 3 years ago and never forgot it so this time we planned our route to Maine from Kingston with a stop here. Last night the Owners were not onsite but the young staff Cooking and serving provided the same outstanding experience. My linguini with scampi and mushrooms was exquisite. Of course the serving is so generous I will have leftovers to enjoy as well. If you are ever in this area be sure to find this place ....not fancy just pure traditional Italian Trattoria.
