Gaetano's is the best deli in the entire area. We have many sandwiches there and have used them for much of your catering needs. Their food is great quality delicious and we're never disappointed. It's a family-owned and operated business and it shows.

Was in Stratford for 4 days visiting family and had lunch here 2 times. This place is simply the best deli. Service is always the best. Quality ingredients and fresh bread. Makes a great meal. Not sure if they were just playing with me but they said they were coming to Florida ! That would be awesome

I have been to Gaetano's Deli now two other times since July of '15. Whenever I am travelling the I-95 corridor in CT I always stop. This past weekend was no different. On our way back from a softball tourney in Delaware we got a craving for a sandwich, and we came here. Once again the service was friendly, humorous... More

What can you really say about a deli that's over the top in service, food quality, and affordability? Great subs, quality products, and entertaining workers. Have been to many delis throughout the country and this ranks as THE best. You will not be disappointed if you enjoy Italian food.

Perfect NY Style Subs, fresh bread and meat every day. Wait on line can be a bit long at peak times, but worth every minute in line.

This an an Italian deli that gets its bread and rolls from Arthur Avenue. The cold cuts are fresh and the bread fantastic. They have prepared entrees that are delicious; sausage and peppers, chicken parm, a pasta dish and a fish dish that change daily. The stuffed breads are also well done. Nicely full and great flavors. So the food... More

Amazing and everything is what we expected. I always review local places on trip advisor before we travel and when I looked up the Stratford Ct. Area Gaetano's Deli was #1. No doubt. Fresh sausage hangs from the above the deli, the meat for our sandwiches was cut as we ordered and the fresh rice balls were worth the trip... More
