My wife and I used to eat here very regularly, and I will always remember this restaurant for having received a phone call with a job offer. Having not been in a while we visited Friday night. Much has changed but not for the better. The prices have gone up dramatically with no difference in quality. They now put on... More

I took my aging mother to this recommended restaurant. The night was warm and the outdoor seating looked inviting. Mom said no way there might be bugs. Walking in I felt that the kitchen smelled great and there were some happy customers at the bar watching the game. mom said, "I don't think I am going to like this place".... More

Always excellent Italian-Seafood restsurant, Neighborhood ambience, Cheers type of bar. Wonderful personnel. Need to tone down Dean & Frank so we can hear each other. Recommend Mediterranean Shrimp Pasta.

This well-established place serves delicious, well-prepared Italian food in a an attractive casual environment (either inside or outside on the patio). The service is excellent. Great menu selection. A bit pricey, but a nice "treat" for special occasions.

Excellent customer service and it was busy. Started with a house salad that was good and a decent portion. Then went on to spaghetti and meatballs. Also very good. Balls were really soft so probably had a fair amount of cereal in them but ok. Others had scallops and a ravioli dish and both were excellent. Our first time there.... More

Too few South Bay restaurants have outdoor seating which is not exposed to traffic, either auto or pedestrian or both. Gaetano has solved this problem. They surrounded a space with greenery and have not crowded it. Very nice during California days ...

We always go to Gaetano's for the "ladies night" menu on Monday. The portions are smaller and less expensive and that fits us just right! Love the service and food.

This review comes from someone born outside of Philadelphia who had incredible Italian food within five miles in any given direction; now I live in the land of pseudo Italian Food and it must be judged on those terms. That being said, Gaetano's was a good, solid experience. Dinner started off kind of weird - I had "checked-in" on a... More

I have not been in the actual restaurant but it looks nice from the outside. I have had two meals there during my spa days. The spa orders lunch from them and brings it to their guest to enjoy in the spa. My eggplant parmigiana with a side of garlic cheese bread was very delicious. I enjoyed every bit. I... More
