Gattos Restaurant was wonderful. Never been there before but service was great as was the food! Large portions, hot bread, and great drinks!

the calamari was great and we shared it amount 3. The entrees were what you would get in one of the chain Italian stores. Nothing exceptional. One white fish dish over angel hair, fish was good, but breading was soggy. The eggplant was ok. Service was excellent. Al did a great job and was helpful and attentive. On " Black... More

Sometimes the chicken dishes are great, sometimes so so (a bit dry) I tried the ravioli last time, again so so, expected more from an Italian restaurant. Appetizers and desserts are generous and good. I've heard the eggplant parm is very good. Very accomodating as you can generally order off menu if it's not listed today. Good value.

This place has a nice touch. It's family oriented and has a very large menu on the wall. There is something for everyone in your group. I had an office across the street from here so I had the pleasure of eating lunch and dinner here several times a week. You won't be sorry that you tried it, I guarantee... More

Great service, large portions. Calamari was delicious and reasonably priced. This has a family atmosphere with sports channels on the Tv. Not for a romantic evening.

Family-friendly, amazing food, super nice staff & service, cool exposed-brick open warehouse ambience, great value, and a well stocked bar. Intimate enough for a first date or anniversary, and casual enough to bring the kids or watch a game at the bar. Order the Chicken Milano... it's sometimes on the specials board, but they'll make it for you "off the... More

If you are in to top shelf Italian food then this is the place. It's packed all of the time. Huge variety of dishes. I never had a bad meal hear. I bring my grand children all of the time. Don't misunderstand me, most families have their children well mannered. It's a family place.

They do not have it on the Menu but if you ask for this dish they will make it for you. It has the best taste and they give you plenty of chiken over angel hair pasta.

Started out with great calamari and bread and all downhill from there. First time in many years I failed to finish a meal. My wife could not eat her meatball and I ate less than 20% of the main. Think the waiter would have given some indication that their meatball and meat sauce was spicy, but he was strictly an... More

We live around the corner and wanted some pizza. It was a busy Friday night, so we put our name in and then noticed two seats at the bar. A bartender with smiling eyes greeted us, and then kindly informed us that they did not have the ovens to make pizza (but he'd understand if we needed to make a... More
