Great subs – I was checking Citysearch for a good sub shop downtown and this had lots of recommendations. I went there and was not disappointed. The "Spicy Geraldi" was a wonderous pile of meats and cheese on a fresh sub roll topped with lettuce, onion, tomato and, of course, italian dressing. That's the sub for me. On other visits I have tried the meatball and sausage subs, and the ravioli and garlic bread. They were good but the spicy sub is still my fave. Good place for quick business lunch.
Awesome Subs – I've been eating at Geraldi's for 10 years now and have NEVER been dissapointed. They even kept me happy through my vegetarian years (the Big Cheese is soooo good). Don't forget to order a side of garlic bread!
A little piece of the East Coast – I have never been one to eat at a restaurant and couldn't wait get back to my computer to write a review, but I have also never ate at a place like Geraldi's...In one word...WOW!!! This has got to be the best italian food I have tasted since my trip to NYC 5 years ago. The meatball sandwich literally melts in your mouth, the spices are just right and the cheese is plentiful...I also recomend the Chicago Beef and their lasagna...in fact, I haven't tried anything yet I wouldn't give my highest rating too. Very affordable, large portions, BIG taste...5 STARS!
Displaced New Yorkers, homesick for their corner Italian sandwich deli, can find solace here. – In Short
For more than 10 years, Portlanders have enjoyed the sandwiches here which feature fresh-baked Italian bread and all the traditional Italian deli meats. Try a Torpedo--hot roast beef with peppers, onions, pepperoni and mozzarella cheese; or have a meatball sandwich with spicy tomato sauce and gobs of melted cheese. Pastas and salads are also available.
The Best Place In Portland – This is my favorite place for Italian Food in Portland, I am sicilian myself so I know good food. They give you huge portions and HUGE garlic bread! I have converted all my friends to this place. It is cheap and I love the ambiance. I reccomend this place to Everyone from out of town and everyone who just wants some GREAT Italian. Love It!
Mmmmmm.... – For a great taste of East Coast deli at a great value, Geraldi's on 4th is a must visit on anyone's lunch list. The selection is fantastic (the Italian Beef is my favorite!), and the service is second to none. The restaurant itself is quaint, has a great atmosphere, and serves up their Italian fare hot and quick. Most days it's even served with an authentic Boston accent! :)
Whether you get you food to go, or eat in, either way it's a great meal. You'll be back!
Best Sub this side of NY!! – Finally found a New York Sub right here in River City. I like their Italian Sub and their Meatball sub, and the bread is great, this is the real authentic thing!!
great for lunch – Nice red table cloth Italian place that's high on value, perfect for lunch. The Geraldi's special chicken sandwich was awesome: chicken, ham, provelone, Italian dressing, etc. The cheese ravioli with meatballs and garlic bread is nothing fancy, just a very rich tomato sauce, sharp parmesan cheese and filling pasta.
