My nephew told me this was one of his favorite places to eat, so we went to check it out. So glad we did! Our waitress was great & the food was amazing! Had the Butternut Squash Ravioli. Delicious!! For dessert, we had the Spinoni. Definitely the best I've ever had. There were 5 of us and we all loved... More

Came for a late lunch after our sushi place we tried to go to was already closed for lunch. Have to say that I was quite surprised. I had the short rib and tagliatelle and my wife had the salmon salad. Both were composed well and had great flavor. Maybe not a place to go out of your way for,... More

Fantastic food and wonderful staff. Have been here numerous times for their family dinners and wine paring dinners. Enjoy sitting outside on the patio when the weather is good, which is almost everyday. My favorites are the pick 2 lunch special with the California chop and eggplant parmigiana and for dinner I love chicken parmigiana or the halibut (delicious)

Ambiance is important as well as the food. The service is as close to perfect, neat, and food is excellent! After a stressful morning, I come to a quiet and tranquil outdoor patio that is so quiet. To think that civilization is on the other side of the bushes and shrubs silencing the noise. A perfect escape. Happy hour is... More

On the recommendation of friends we tried out Gaetanos for a change. The restaurant was filled with weekend diners and the bar looked busy with people just relaxing having drinks. While the host was able to squeeze us in and service was very good, the food was just mediocre at best. The caesar salad was bland, the pork was dry... More

We have been here several times. Seems like quite a few regulars. My favorite is the baked pasta dishes. Yummy and plenty to share or take home. Sometimes there is a piano player which is annoying because it's difficult to talk over him.

Small gem restaurant! We like going here for lunch with co workers and dinner with friends. Food is really tasty and the servers are really friendly. I think it's a family owned restaurant so they treat every one like family. Make sure to make reservations on "opentable" App. They tend to get really busy specially during dinner hours. Just try...

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
