Simply the best deli period

Great food. The made to order deli sandwiches are fantastic. Yes, the line can get a little long around lunchtime, but it moves quickly. There are a couple of small tables outside though it is bordered by a laundromat and a seedy bar. There is no table service, but if you want a great deli, look no... read more

There are a couple of small tables outside though it is bordered by a laundromat and a seedy bar. There is no table service, but if you want a great deli, look no further.

Gaetano's Deli offers wonderful food, especially their stuffed breads. They cater and will even deliver within a certain area. Every time I have gone there, they are friendly and willing to help. They have a great menu for stopping in for lunch or for planning a large gathering.

Gaetano's is the best. The service is great the guys are always friendly and accommodating to any changes in their menu. Their grinders are always freshly made. Always pick some up on the way to a New York Yankees game. they are big fans. The eggplant and sausage is the best you can find in the Stratford Area.

we are not usually there on a monday and did not know it closes at 3 but the nice guy at the counter was able to sell me some of the yummiest dishes from the case; stuffed peppers (love the little red ones with goat cheese) and eggplant roll ups with mozzarella, pepper and basil. We happily brought them home... More

This place has the best stuff ! My husband loves the Kovac's-chicken cutlet,broccoli rabe,roasted peppers(or hot ones if you ask)o&v-perfect ! The guys are great too - sometimes they're all singing to the radio...lol. The antipasto platter is unbelievable-always a hit when I bring it to parties.

One of if not the best deli, on the planet. This is an Arthur Ave replant in Connecticut with real serious italian food, deli hero's, hot food, stuffed breads, soups, meat platter, name it. That being said please don't go here so I won't have to wait in line!

You can eat here as there are tables outside, but it is really a take out spot. Busy from 11:30 till 1:30, the line moves fast. Know what you want by the time you get to the counter - the meat is sliced per sandwich. Paper menus are by the door so no worries about trying to see the board... More

The food is genuinely Italian and wonderfully prepared--I am particularly partial to their prosciutto paninis. And the attitude of the staff is both friendly and helpful. Besides great prices, what more could you ask for?
