We dined here on a Wednesday night and ate outside. Very pleasant and not too noisy ( my husband wears a hearing aid and has trouble hearing at a lot of restaurants). We had bruschetta which was on soggy bread although bruschetta itself was good. Shared a salad and very good lasagne ( about $18) and had plenty to eat.... More

We enjoyed Gaetano's for a Monday evening birthday celebration. Monday is Girl's Night Out at Gaetano's. The portions are perfect and oh so delicious, plenty of selections on their special GNO menu with great wine choices and prices. And, I believe it's where the guys hang out on a Monday night hoping to meet some fun girls. As usual, our... More

We happened upon Gaetano's on a Wednesday evening around 7pm. Had a coupon for a free bruschetta appetizer. This place was packed! We waited about 20 minutes for a table. There is seating indoors, outside and at the bar. We got a little table inside. Nice, clean and welcoming place. It was loud inside, but we could still talk. Appetizer... More

Gaetano's is a mall located Italian spot. Nothing too exotic here but all your traditional dishes are available. Pasta was perfectly cooked "Al Dente" and not over sauced. Decent wine selection. Nice outdoor patio area. I would return.

This is a great restaurant for Italian food. The selection is excellent, the preparation is excellent, and the test is as good as anything I have had. The place is small, and popular, so reservations really are required. But if you want a great Italian meal -- go to Gaetano's

We've been going to this restaurant since they were in their original location. They served traditional Italian food, delicious and with fresh ingredients. We were lucky to meet the original owner, a very sweet and welcoming lady. Their new location is very nice, the food is great, they have a few new main courses and appetizers, and the freshness and... More

Very popular place, so, reservation is recommended. Very cozy place, indoors and heated outdoors, nice after a massage upstairs. Lasagne is my family's favorite, I love the handmade mushroom ravioli

I first discovered Gaetanos about 15+ yrs ago. When I think of BBQ chicken pizza, I think of Gaetanos - it's the best. Family friendly place. Other items on menu at delicious.

I have visited Terranea at least 5 times in 2015 and always enjoyed it. The food is tasty and the staff are accommodating. LOVE their Penne Asparagi and their Butternut Squash Ravioli. Quality Italian food at a reasonable price.
