This is the best deli east of New York City. Absolute 10+. Worth any drive. Their meats are second to none. The cheese is chunk sliced right in front of you. The bread is crispy on the outside and soft inside. Great selections and you won't walk away hungry.

Although we have lived in the area for five years, we had never made it to Gaetano's until last week, and already we've been twice. Stratford is a little lean on great deli's, and this place tops them all and pretty much any deli anywhere. The crew is amazing - funny, helpful, friendly, and really fast so the long line... More

We have so many places in NY, Gaetano's is from the Bronx actually, but none compare to these guys. Their sandwiches are great but they have these fabulous breads, ricotta fritters, eggplant wraps and a new one for us: little red peppers filled with goat cheese. Did I mention how they are super nice and friendly and give people tastes... More

If you grew up in or around the Bronx, NY, this is normal food and you LOVE it. We were spoiled back in NY and took great places like this for granted. Not anymore. Once we moved to CT the bread was differnt, not to mention the meats and cheeses (of course we are talking wedges here). When Guy opened... More

This place reminds me of the World Famous Fish market in Seattle, but instead of Seafood it's Italian! Customers love this place because of the freindliness, fresh food and and atmosphere. It's authentic and you feel like family when you walk in. This place is a true gem!

We were passing by on the way to Rhode Island and I found this place online. By the time we ordered and paid we felt like we were regulars. The staff is over-the-top friendly and accommodating. The sandwiches are excellent. I had an eggplant complete with peppers and mozzarella on a long roll. My husband had chicken with prosciutto, peppers... More

My dad recently passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer's. My sweetheart brought over a wonderful Italian cold cut platter, like one she had gotten for a relative's funeral dinner. The selection of meats, cheeses, and garnish items were phenomenal. From what I heard, it was a bit pricey, but very delicious. We had enough to bring to church... More
