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

Been going there for over 13 yrs. Has gone through a real transformation--had a couple of dozen very good family Italian recipes on the menu. Over the last 3-5 yrs, family matriarch has transitioned management to daughter and now to grandson. All good as it has evolved from a good home-style restaurant to an Italian gourmet establishment with a much... More

My wife and I love Gaetano's Restaurant in Torrance. The food is always excellent and the waiters are friendly. It can be a little noisy inside some evenings but eating in the patio on a warm night is always great! I recommend this to all!

Had a delicious spinach salad with a fabulous piece of salmon on it last night. My friend also really enjoyed her pasta dish. It's a bit tricky to find in its shopping center location, tucked away behind some trees next to a wine shop. Plus the address is on PCH but it faces Crenshaw Blvd. But worth finding it. I... More

My daughter and I were in Torrance near the hospital and looking for a place to eat. We stumbled across Gaetano's…Wow…is what I have to say. Who would have known, tucked away in the corner of a little strip mall, that a place like this existed! We sat outside in their cute patio, next to their herb garden and grapes,... More

The service is very good and the food is consistently good as well. The fare is basic Italian American but is made well. No surprises here. The client base is locals who return over and over which is always a good sign.
