About

Our family restaurant opened its doors July 2nd, 1956 by founders Frances and Michael Geraci. The restaurant is currently owned and operated by their daughter, Marti Geraci, her husband, Greg Spoth, and their children. Our casual, family-friendly restaurant proudly serves traditional Italian entrees. Our unaltered recipes have been passed down from our family in Sicily to ensure an authentic Italian experience. We are honored to be one of Cleveland’s longest standing traditions and look forward to sharing our love for food with you and your loved ones.

THEY DO NOT USE OPEN TABLE ANYMORE. I made a reservation 2.5wks ago for them to tell me they don’t use this app and that they didn’t have a reservation for me at all!! The only reason I even found out is bc I called to add another person to our reservation. THEY NEED TO REMOVE THEIR BUSINESS FROM THIS APP!!! I had ppl driving from the west side to meet us for dinner; & we ended up at some crappy place. I don’t understand why this even happened, how unprofessional. So sad bc we like this place and now we don’t even want to go back.

Geraci’s is normally one of our favorites for pizza. Last night was different. Our “clean” table that we were seated at was dirty. Food pieces on the table and booth. Once that got cleaned up, we were ready to enjoy dinner with friends. Our waitress had too many tables or people. She was running herself ragged. She warned us that pizzas were taking 25-35 mins which was fine since we wanted to enjoy our evening. Our salads came out promptly and were nice, as usual. When our dinner came out, it was stone cold. Pizza cold is bad enough, but cold mussels don’t work at all! The waitress apologized and said she would have them remake our order, which she did, and it came out quickly. All the food was hot, but the two white pizzas were red. Neither of us could eat the red so we sent them back. They offered to remake them again but we said no thank you. No manager came over to apologize, no offer of free dessert, which none of us would have taken. My husband barely ate his pizza and our friend barely ate his mussels/pasta because we weren’t eating. After speaking to the owner/manager (I seeked her out) I told her how disappointed I was. Instead of taking any accountability, she blamed everything on the waitress. We got our money back WHICH WAS NOT REQUESTED! The last straw for us was when the owner/manager YELLED at the waitress, blamed her and embarrassed her in front of customers. That is no way to treat your customers OR your help. As much as we love their pizza, we will find a new place to go!

Food was barely edible. Side dishes cold broccoli and spinach and swimming in oil. Main courses were fair. Not worth the money.

This was the second time I’ve been here. It’s a little pricey compared to other places that have this kind of food. My chicken francaise was a little too salty. The wine prices were too high too. I would recommend the place but warn of the prices.

Our server seemed to struggle with the amount of tables he had which resulted in mediocre service.

We were there to celebrate our 42nd wedding anniversary and the mood, atmosphere, and service was on point. My husband didn't like the Margarita and how it was mixed but the food was great. We enjoyed our first time visit our usual spot is the Warrensville location in South Euclid.

While I was growing up we went to Geracis in University Hts frequently. My Dad came into town and we decided to give this a try. The food took a really long time to arrive. When it did the pizza was not good. We were the only people in the restaurant.
Hard to understand.

The server, Max, was excellent. I spilled on my shirt and he brought club soda and a cloth napkin to clean it without asking. Very smart young man. Food was good, although the portion of my veal marsala was smaller than expected.

This is a very lively, traditional Italian restaurant with a large carry out pizza business. It was good—and good service—but nothing on the menu really stood out.

Although we greatly miss Marbella's, a Spanish restaurant previously in that location, this is a good replacement. All of us greatly enjoyed our dinners, had great service and were allowed to linger and enjoy our conversations. Nice outdoor area for people who like to dine outside.

The waiter brought the glasses to the table holding two together with his fingers on the inside of the glasses. He never told us we get a salad with our dinners. He never brought bread to the table. I ordered wedding soup and it was spilled all over the outside of the bowl, very sloppy. There were no noodles in the soup when I asked him about the noodles he said you don't make it with noodles, told him to take it back and remove it from my bill. I saw him all night delivery food with no tray, I saw him come out with 4 salads all stacked on top of each other. I saw him delivery other glasses with his fingers in them. My husband liked his dinner. I had a pizza, it was just a pizza not worth the trip. Will not return. Bad all the way around.

This was one of the worst restaurant experiences we’ve ever had. Ugly, depressing ambience, below mediocre food, and agonizingly slow, disjointed service. The servers are very nice young people, but on a busy evening, there were not sufficient number of servers. The kitchen churns out a large number of southern Italy dishes, all loaded with the same unpleasant tomato sauce.
This restaurant simply makes no efforts to create a nice ambience, food, or service. Why try for some level of good, when you can pack the place with lousy everything?
Save your time and money and eat something at home. You will have a much more pleasant experience.
