Living in Old Town, the wife and myself frequent this place all the time, for birthdays, celebrations and the nights when we can't bothered to cook or the cupboards are empty. Very reasonably priced, excellent service and the food is superb. We often take friends and family here who also really love the place. Why eat at the chains when... More

Its quirky, but the food, service, price and atmosphere is excellent. Its a simplistic menu, very old school but you cannot knock the quality. It has a pretty good wine list as well. Always has specials on. Always has excellent service.

We went to Gaetano's to Celebrate my Birthday on Friday 11th April. There were 34 of us and the owner Carlo was excellent in accommodating such a large group. We were upstairs and everyone enjoyed the food,the atmosphere and service of the staff. I had a great get together with friends and family with good food in a great Italian... More

I have just visited this restaurant with business colleagues following some of the rave reviews on tripadvisor. The service was excellent and the choice of wines was very good but the menu is very Anglo Italian and harks back to the days when very few British travelled so didn't understand what good Italian food was. People travel much more now... More

Myself & my friend visited with a Groupon offer. I had never been before and was immediately impressed with the atmosphere & décor. It was like being on holiday! We were seated & shown what we could pick off the menu with our groupon. I chose the Bruschetta with mushrooms, it was lovely, and arrived in good time although it... More

When we lived in Swindon, Friday night at Gaetano's was a regular experience. More than ten years later, the offer of a groupon voucher was enough to tempt us back in to town and stepping through the door was like stepping back in time. The decor and the menu were pretty much the same (not that we minded!) and I... More

Me and my mum popped out for a nice fancying Italian food. The service was fantastic the people there lovely and attentive. The food was perfect and I complimented the chefs. I had a wonderful evening and will be going back there as soon as I can.
