The ambiance is very nice as is the food. Their menu selection is large enough for most tastes and the food is very good and the servings ample. We enjoy sitting outdoors while having dinner with a small group of friends or just the two of us. I like the pasta dishes and my wife enjoys the seafood choices.The service... More

Picked up lunch after calling ahead and thoroughly enjoyed the bruschetta wedge and baked mostaccoli. The meal was ready as promised. A little on the pricey side but wanted a treat of great food. Was not disappointed.

It is very difficult for me to write this review because Gaetano's has been our absolute favorite Italian restaurant in the Southbay for many years. My wife and I, along with numerous family members, have eaten here dozens of times and consider ourselves "regulars". Following our experience the night after Christmas, we will not be returning. Not because of the... More

Love this place: the food, the ambience, the staff, EVERYTHING. I live in Europe and love Italian food, but hadn't been able to find anything that came up to snuff in the South Bay, but Gaetano's did it. The food is wonderful. Can highly recommend.

We've now been to Gaetano's three times. The first time my husband and I went it was not busy, which may be why the waitress felt it was ok to catch up on the news with all her old customers. We were glad to see so many people loved the place, but service was the worst we'd ever had. Ever.... More

Went there for dinner on a Friday night. It was slightly crowded but we were seated pretty quickly. My wife had seafood risotto, and I had the pork shoulder. We both loved our meals. Great place for a date night.

There are many Italian restaurants in the South Bay area, mostly "chain restaurants". Gaetano's is a locally owned and operated restaurant that has been serving excellent Italian dishes since 1999. It has a friendly family ambiance with many different food choices and specials. I love their sandabs if they are in season and their pasta, especially the ravioli. They have... More

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
