Awesome

A wonderful experience. Fresh (meat sliced as sandwich was made) generous sandwich and a friendly outgoing staff. I will return when I'm in the area again. Not an eat-in, but worth a stop!

To borrow an old phrase...this place is a "hole in the wall" very small inside...but don't let that deter you!! You will find many, many Italian specialties here sold in the atmosphere of an Arthur Ave. N.Y. deli. Sandwiches are made fresh, there are various hot foods offered and in that vein...don't miss the eggplant parmigiana. Just like my mother... More

Everyone I know loves this Deli. The food is so fresh. The service is a pleasure and I don't always say that! Highly recommend. I checked that I was here for family visit because you can get awesome party food, or just sandwiches, but our office also orders lunch there and it is a favorite.

My husband and I treat ourselves to Geatano's a few times a month. They are a little more expensive than your average sandwich shop but worth every single penny! The bread is always freshly baked. That perfect crisp on the outside and softness on the inside that melts in your mouth! the meats cheeses and produce always taste like they... More

Excellent in so many ways. Cold cuts & prepared foods are delicious. Customer service is A-one. Guys always have something friendly to say & are generous in their free samples. Bread is from Arthur Ave. in the Bronx. Build your own combo or get one of the many they have on their menu. Enjoy!

For many special occasions our family orders wonderful, homemade food from this old world style Italian deli. Their breads are fresh from Arthur Ave each day. The cheeses and every other item in this deli rate a ten out of ten. The guys who own and work behind the counters are so nice. 'Love this place!

I go here every year around xmas to get my provolone. They always welcome my daughter and me with a smile and a handshake. I only get the extra sharp that many others don't so it's almost tradition that a fresh one is cut open for me. Being 6'5", I have the distinction of being one of the few that... More

I have been going to Gaetano's for the last 11 years. I used to go to the Stratford location but have since moved closer to the Monroe location. These guys make the best sandwiches and seem like they are legitimately having fun while doing it. Milano sent my wife and I cannoli's when my first son was born. I have... More

Chose this place based on Trip Advisor reviews...score!! Highly rated for a reason. The line was longish but went fast, the guys working were polite and eager to serve. The sandwich rivals the best in area. The bread was fresh and meat was freshly sliced when I ordered. I'll go back no doubt!!
