Tasty food, good price and great servive

Discovered this Italians just before Xmas and have been a couple of times since. Not sure it's not higher rated as is a great little restaurant.

Friendly Italian restaurant serving delicious food. My party ate pasta dishes and our plates were clean. Prices were very reasonable. We did not have room for puddings but the menu looked tempting. Delicious Chianti enjoyed.

Visited here after purchasing a voucher through Groupon. Never quite sure what to expect with a voucher purchase but so please with this one, bought another! Very busy, when we visited on a Friday night, but expected this so wasn't a problem - the place was packed but we didn't mind at all as there was such a great atmosphere... More

Couldn't eat my dish as despite telling them I have an allergy with onions I was given a dish containing onion. Tried my partners who's food was cold and tastless. Huge disappointment and the first time ive regretted giving a takeaway my money. Do not waste yours! Trust me!

Hello, I am very sad to hear that you are allergic to onions but I remember really well that you ordered 'Penne Amatriciana' with contains bacon, onions and tomato sauce and didn't mention that you were allergic to onions. Another thing, Is if you were allergic, why didn't you return it to us? We always make sure that our customers... More

Too noisy for us and cramped inside. Wouldn't recommend for couples despite the fact that the food was very nice... portion sizes were a bit mean tho... wouldn't reccomend to anyone hungry lol.

I absolutely love Gaetano's. It's certainly one of my favourite restaurants. We went here for a birthday meal on Saturday and the food was amazing. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating and made our visit very pleasurable. There were 7 of us dining in total and we each had a starter and main course, all of which were lovely....

Me and my partner went here in February. We walked past the venue several times and noticed it was always busy/ish so thought would try. We wermt expecting it to be so small inside and found it too cramped. It was very noisey as there were large groups their. The atmosphere would have been good if we went as a... More

Literally the most authentic and fun Italian in town. The food is gorgeous and the staff are fun and welcoming. Never failing to make you feel like family, Carlo, Sara, Valentino and Frank provide the best service and are always happy. Never had a bad experience here- if you want Italian food, I promise you this is the place to... More

We recently held our daughter's 21st birthday party for around 25 family members at Gaetano's in their upstairs room. We were able to decorate the room as we wished but it is so nice as it is we only put up some banners and a few balloons and the atmosphere was amazing. The food and service were absolutely great and... More

Gaetano's looked after a party of 25 of us for my sons 18th birthday in December 2014. We had 2 dedicated waitresses who couldn't do enough for us even though I think it was difficult for such a large group. Everyone said they enjoyed their food and my son felt like he'd been treated like a VIP. We had virtually... More
