Boogie Down Bites: Gerbasi Ristorante

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

A traditional Italian restaurant has seen many changes in ownership but continues to make authentic food.

Gerbasi Ristorante is located on Arthur Avenue.

The restaurant was bought by Moises Calisto who started working as a busboy in 2011.

Eventually Calisto worked his way up to waiter and again to manager before purchasing the restaurant.

Calisto who is originally from Mexico says he always envisioned serving the same authentic Italian food at Gerbasi.

Calisto says it is a dream come true to own the restaurant in the Bronx. 

2389 Arthur Ave, Bronx, NY 10458

    Fancy decor and expensive meals don't always equate to good food, and one humble restaurant in Soundview is showing it doesn't need an extravagant establishment to serve up great meals.
