I was visiting my son and we were with a couple of my friends looking for a place to eat in The Village on a Saturday night when we stumbled upon this wonderful Italian restaurant in the Village. Both the food and the service were wonderful. We were pleasantly surprised when the frozen margaritas came in iced tea glasses and... More

We went to Gaetana's our first night in NewYork and had a great meal and a wonderful time! Everything from the appetizers to the desserts was homemade and delicious. The owner and his wife couldn't have been friendlier. I felt like I was at my favorite Italian uncle's for dinner! They have a great variety of food, but they went... More

The only reason I visited this restaurant is the PATH service was suspended and I simply wanted to eat and drink while I waited (the restaurant is one block from the Christopher Street PATH station). I sat at the bar, which had both the preseason Giants and Jets game on the two TVs. I felt like the bartender was more... More

I returned to Gaetana's after nine months and ordered the Lasagna. It was just a good as my last visit. This time I had lentil soup that was the size of a meal all by itself. Unfortunately, it was too salty and I had only a few spoonfuls :-( Hopefully this was one off.

Gaetana's is tucked away in West Village, a few blocks from the Hudson River, steps from the Christopher St. PATH stop and a few blocks from the Christopher St./Sheridan Square 1-train stop. It truly is a hidden gem in a massive and sometimes confusing NYC dining scene. Have been here twice now and boy does this place serves up some... More

My wife and sat at the bar to have a beer. It is an old-fashioned bar with a very warm atmosphere and the people are super friendly. The service is great too. We decided to order dinner. My wife ordered linguini with clam sauce which she said was the best she'd had in a long time. I had the homemade... More

Had dinner here with kids. Food was good. Full service bar. Definitely s great family restaurant.There were 7 of us and they were kind enough to bring the youngest child her food when it was ready so so did not have to wait for the adults.

OK, here goes. We passed this place several times coming home from Rock Bar. We went there this evening for dinner. WHAT A MISTAKE! Now, I have given about 32 one star ratings out of 175+ reviews, this is my first no star rating, but Yelp! won't let you do that. I read the reviews here which made me decide... More

Was quite late on a Saturday evening, and I just wandered in with fingers crossed. I was seated promptly and ordered the home made lasagna and a glass of wine. It was delicious. Service was attentive, the premises were clean, and prices reasonable for NYC. I would not hesitate to return.
