Keep your eyes open when looking for Gherardo for the first time because it’s quite hard to find. It’s really just that “hole in the wall” like so many other Italian pearls. At first glance it might seem a bit too small but it’s actually really cozy when it fills up with people (you can’t have a problem with being close to people though) and especially when that yummy pizza arrives. Peak time is on Sunday evening like every pizzeria in Italy, so at least then it’s better to book a table, even in small groups.
The pizza here is my favourite kind of pizza. The “thicker” pizza with its origins in Naples. It doesn’t mean it’s super thick, just not as thin and crunchy as the Tuscan kind. What flavour to pick is really a matter of taste. Sometimes I feel like a pizza with plenty of filling and sometimes the original, simple Margherita, just can’t be beaten. Just read carefully because some pizzas are without the tomato base and it’s not to everyones liking. I can guarantee the pizzas are fantastic!
Service is good and very relaxed. Of course the time it takes depends on the amount of people. Gherardo only has pizza on the menu.
