This place seemed to get a lot of very good reviews so that's never a bad sign. Tucked away at the end of a strip mall in a corner and not really easy to find. Tried the eggplant park and a Malbec and both were very good. Plates are large so you will be able to eat it the next... More

We only made the reservation by telephone the day before, and were asked if we were celebrating anything? I replied that we were celebrating a birthday, but when we arrived and the hostess asked, we explained that there were two in our party, each celebrating birthdays within the week. We were seated promptly in a comfortable booth, with a special... More

Great Italian restaurant with exceptional food and service. My sister's family has been going here since before the actual restaurant was started from the original deli the family established in the same location. I except nothing more than excellence and they lived up to my expectations. We were seated quickly and offered the Tuesday family special but declined since there... More

The folks at Gaetano's just catered a dinner party last Saturday at my request. The pear & Gorgonzola salad was excellent as always. The had veal picotta and chicken marsala. All was excellent. I selected this restarant based on my many visits, knowing that all would go well. I was certainly not disappointed!

I only write reviews if something is really good or really bad. This review is for the latter; ordered the lasagna grande, pear & gorgonzola salad, and a cheese pizza for delivery for a family event at my home. They showed up 1/2hr early when nobody was home, so the food was semi-cold by the time we started our event.... More

Recently met friends here for lunch. The menu offers nice variety and a selection of lighter dishes and smaller lunch portions of traditional Italian food. The seafood dishes are excellent and fresh. And the guys love the lasagna. I noticed the outdoor patio area has become very popular and has the European feel with the herb gardens and grape vines.... More

I was in search of a really good Italian restaurant that is comparable to what I'm used to in New Jersey. That when I came across Gaetano's and was very satisfied. The service was amazing and the food was perfect. Would have given a 5☆ but felt a little cramped do to the tight seating. Definitely a must try.

My friends and I go there frequently for lunch. Every meal has been wonderful and my friends would agree. I love their coffee and even inquired about the brand. The Eggplant Parmesan is one of my favorites.

We have eaten here 50+ times and are always totally satisfied with the food and the friendly family service. My favorite is Linguine with white clam sauce and my wife's eggplant parmigian. They also have the option of a 6 oz or a 9 oz glass of wine with 2 glasses. Reservations are a must! Once a month they also... More
