Wife had a "mini" Italian sub that was huge and very tasty, I had a "mini" bacon cheeseburger which was 1/2 lb. of burger, a lot of meat but not the best tasting.

We sometimes order office lunches from Gaetano's. Dining in is a pleasant informal experience here. Do not expect anything fancy or special . Good place for those who prefer predictable simple food.

I thought Gaetano's had a great reputation. It's been there forever. So, when I visited South Jersey, I stopped for a Chicken Parmesan Sandwich, instead of going to my "regular place 10 miles away. Very disappointing. Fries were frozen, twice fried and cold. Chicken had lots of gristle. Not enough sauce, tons of tasteless cheese.

The cheese steaks were amazing and the wings were very good as well. I ate here a few times during my stay in Brooklawn and it was one of my favorite places to eat after coming back from training for the day.

You cant go wrong with the excellent food and large portions ! The dinners are big enough to split between 2 people . I enjoy the shrimp scampi as the shrimp are large and the sauce is delicious !

Gaetano's seems to be doing a better job with catering for small simple informal events than in restaurant dinning. They have tasty sandwiches, simple decent salad, rather boring garlic bread, good pasta primavera. They will gladly prepare platers for your casual events.

I didn't care for their limited dinners so I asked for broccoli pizza and received a white pizza with ice cold broccoli on top of both slices. The waitress was very good plus efficient and wanted to reheat it but I told her it was never heated in the first place, which was not her fault. I pushed the broccoli... More

The food is very good, the portions are huge, the prices are very reasonable. A larger menu/variety than many local pizza/steak/sandwich places.
