The food was great overall. I was expecting the corned beef rolls to be a little crispier, but the taste was great. There were several appealing options for dinner on the menu, making a choice was hard. I look forward to returning so I can try other menu options.

This was the first time going to Gezzo’s and the experience was amazing. Our waitress Natasha was great, explained everything on the menu to us and gave us great suggestions which we tried. We loved everything we tried. Great customer service is hard to come by in these times. The food and drinks were amazing. It was a different experience and definitely would come back.
