Huge portions at reasonable prices

The food is very good, the portions are huge, the prices are very reasonable. A larger menu/variety than many local pizza/steak/sandwich places.

You cant go wrong with the excellent food and large portions ! The dinners are big enough to split between 2 people . I enjoy the shrimp scampi as the shrimp are large and the sauce is delicious !

Gaetano's seems to be doing a better job with catering for small simple informal events than in restaurant dinning. They have tasty sandwiches, simple decent salad, rather boring garlic bread, good pasta primavera. They will gladly prepare platers for your casual events.

I didn't care for their limited dinners so I asked for broccoli pizza and received a white pizza with ice cold broccoli on top of both slices. The waitress was very good plus efficient and wanted to reheat it but I told her it was never heated in the first place, which was not her fault. I pushed the broccoli... More

Try it for yourself... I won't go back, but I didn't hate the food. Better places all around the area. It is very expensive, but you get a lot of food.

I live about a mile away from Gaetano's. My dad and I always come here to grab a bite for lunch. The chicken cheesesteak is awesome! And they're extremely big. I always order the small sized one and can barely finish it. They make sure it's stuffed and not lacking on the meat like a lot of places do. They... More

We stopped in for lunch and split a 17" Cheesesteak and barely finished. It was loaded with perfectly cooked steak and cheese and the roll was just right. We really like Philly Cheesesteaks and this was a good one. Everybody in the area agreed it was good when we mentioned we ate at Gaetanos so it has a good local... More

In South Jersey there is a cheesesteak shop on every corner, and most are very good. But there is only one best and that is Gaetano's. The portions are huge, a "mini" is large enough for most. They actually have a full menu, but I don't know how it is because I always order nothing but a cheesesteak. (Gaetano's is... More

My wife and I consume many steak sandwiches and Gaetanos makes the best. The meat is finely sliced and PLENTY of it. The large is 18" long and the mini is large enough to satisfy. The owner is very affalible and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
