This is a smallish restaurant with good service, delicious food, and nice wine selection. Grilled asparagus was served warm, lightly dressed and tender from base to tips. Asparagus pasta was full of distinct flavors including mushrooms, moist chicken slices, garlic, and light non-tomato-based sauce. The wild mushroom ravioli was served with great care taken to highlight the woodsy mushroom flavors.... More

Gaetano's is a winner!From the piping hot rolls with olive oil to the garden salad to the popular chicken piccata (they let us deviate a little from the menu). We also tried the Rosotto al Mare (pasta with seafood) and the Pasta Sonoma (cavatappi with chicken, shallots, sun dried tomatoes and creamy marinara. A homerun!

Small family restaurant with nice variety of dishes, including very good pizza for take-out or to be eaten there.

My wife and I enjoyed a great meal at Gaetano's. Our meal got off to a great start with the hot bread with seasoned olive oil. We had the mushroom soup and caesar salad, and both were excellent. I went old school and had a great plate of Spaghetti with Meatballs. The meatballs were finely seasoned and very generous. My... More

My husband and I eat at Gaetanos pretty frequently as it is pretty close to our home. We really enjoy the food here and love the feel of a traditional Italian restaurant -- reasonable prices as well. We usually order the Arancini as an appetizer and it is always a treat to find this on the menu. Last week,we tried... More

Not a chain food place and not high end, just about right for a nice meal out that doesn't break the bank. All the food was fresh, the pasta was cooked to perfection. Nice décor and the tables weren't too close together. They weren't busy as we went mid-week apart from a big table of 10 birthday people who were... More

Nice neighborhood Italian restaurant. The squash filled ravioli is divine. Good place to spend a hour or so with friends and a Monday special menu was a good surprise

Short and sweet - the food here is always great, service is wonderful Make reservations - it can get crowded. Parking is easy, might be slightly hard to find the first time, but it's not that hard :) Will definitely be back again. Their tasting menu looks great, although I had the vegetarian Ravioli this time. My date liked her... More
