Went here with my partner for a dinner! After a look at the extensive menu I chose the lamb on the special Board and my partner took a fillet Rossini! Presentation of the dishes was super and the lamb was simply delicious and a huge portion aswell! my partner also was so impressed by the sauce of his rossini and... More

Went here on a busy Saturday night, and it was pretty full. Staff were welcoming, and friendly throughout. Food was freshly cooked and very tasty; had lasagna which was lovely. The house white wine by the carafe is also very nice. Good value, and a fresh European feel. Would definitely return and recommend.

So, the website says they are open until 11.30pm but when we went there at 10.50pm on a Saturday night they tell us they are closed!!!!! Very disappointed as this is my hubby's favourite restaurant, guess we have to find a new favourite restaurant 😏

All I can say... Everything is great. Lasagna was fabulous. Staff is very friendly and atmosphere 100%. No regrets at all. If you are in Swindon, don't think, this is your place. I'll missed this place. I hope they open a branch in London.

I've been here a couple of times, both with family / friends and as part of a large group (15+ people). The staff are always very polite and attentive. The decor is a little quirky, but all adds to the atmosphere. I've never had a bad meal from here and would definitely recommend.

On an initial visit, i felt the atmosphere to be a bit "chilly", but since then it has become one of my favourite Italian restaurants. I didn't like the tiled floor and wanted soft carpet (typical English comfort), but having been to Italy and Spain etc., i finally got it... it was totally authentic, as was the food! Regarding the... More

Good enough Italian of which Swindon has many. Its middle of the road establishment imo and you are unlikely to be disappointed if not thrilled.

I love Italian food and cook Italian at home... But last evening meal was terrible, spaghetti was cooked al dente good, but the sauce consisted of cream only, no other flavours(onion, white wine, or seasoning...) To add injury to insult, the meat tasted off(finely chopped tasteless ham)... My colleagues meals were ok, but for an Italian chef to present a... More

Hello ! Thank you for you feedback! What can I say? You're right that was not the our usual carbonara! Trust me we know how one carbonara have to be, to be honest in the real recipe the cream doesn't go at all only eggs but we have to adapt some dishes to the places where we are! Too many... More

One is spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding which Italian to dine at in Swindon. Gaetano's draws us back. As it treats us like an old friend. Hospitable and friendly. Always welcoming and accomodating. Efficient service, excellent food and reasonable prices.
