We recently visited Gaetano's and arranged a surprise Birthday. The staff were absolutely fantastic and very friendly, there was no rush to get our orders in either, unlike other places I have experienced. Everything ran perfectly for which I appreciate as it was for a very special 60th. Food was beautiful 👌🏻 exactly how we like it! Feedback from our... More

Food Was mediocre, and the prices on the menu seem reasonable however when the bill was presented it was a ridiculously expensive meal in the end.

We have been going to Gaetano's for the last 3 years, since we moved into the area, and I can't praise this place enough. I am normally highly critical on most restaurants I visit, not because I am difficult or awkward, but because I know that it is so easy for places to get it right, but few do, but... More

Went for a meal for a friend's birthday meal. At the time Christmas parties were also taking place which should be taken into consideration. Overall the service and food were good but I would suggest that some items on the menu are more English than Italian. The food was good bt not great and the pasta dish I had lacked... More

I am always very happy to visit Gaetano's, the food is good and very reasonably priced, however on our last few visits the atmosphere is a little bland, not helped by the fact that aside from our table of 3 just 2 other people were dining. Sadly it seems with all the new restaurants in Old Town they are struggling... More

As usual a great experience from booking to dining. Friendly efficient staff, delicious food, good price. Convivial atmosphere as you would imagine in a family Italian restaurant.

What a wonderful meal we had. All our food was beautifully presented, the Fillet Steak Rossini was cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. Excellent service and will definitely be going back in the near future!!

Always a good meal at Gaetano's. Great friendly service in a suitably over the top cosy establishment. Lovely food and a gorgeous bottle of vino with an espresso chaser. Be back very soon.
