Pleasant patio ... good food

Too few South Bay restaurants have outdoor seating which is not exposed to traffic, either auto or pedestrian or both. Gaetano has solved this problem. They surrounded a space with greenery and have not crowded it. Very nice during California days ...

We always go to Gaetano's for the "ladies night" menu on Monday. The portions are smaller and less expensive and that fits us just right! Love the service and food.

This review comes from someone born outside of Philadelphia who had incredible Italian food within five miles in any given direction; now I live in the land of pseudo Italian Food and it must be judged on those terms. That being said, Gaetano's was a good, solid experience. Dinner started off kind of weird - I had "checked-in" on a... More

I have not been in the actual restaurant but it looks nice from the outside. I have had two meals there during my spa days. The spa orders lunch from them and brings it to their guest to enjoy in the spa. My eggplant parmigiana with a side of garlic cheese bread was very delicious. I enjoyed every bit. I... More

Have never had a bad meal. Great choices and great food. Not very big so I always recommend making reservations to ensure you can get in.

Whenever we have out of town guests, we always take them to Gaetano's - and everyone loves the experience. When it is just my husband and I, we go to enjoy their generous happy hour! We always feel very welcome and so do our guests. Michael makes the best Manhattan in town!

This restaurant was a favorite of ours for years when we lived in California. The menu has changed over the years to reflect the times but the food, atmosphere and service are still the best. I highly recommend it.

My favorite local restaurant is Gaetano's . My husband and I often have an early dinner there after we have been to the movies. Gaetano's is a family owned restaurant with great food and excellent service.

This restaurant leads you to believe it's good but is far from that!! Garlic bread was like biting into a rock, the portions were small and the overall taste was poor!! PLEASE AVOID!! If you want Italian food that is less expensive and far better just go to OLIVE GARDEN... You will leave here disappointed and wish you never walked... More

Although the location is in a busy shopping area, Geatano's has made the indoor and outdoor experience to be comfortable and classy. The food is always good and the featured items are highly recommended. They have a good wine list and a full bar. Try a dessert also. .
