Always a delicious dinner at Gaetanos. Service was friendly and attentive.
I had a wonderful dish of lemony pasta with shrimp and halibut. It was the special, but it needs to be on the permanent menu. I would order that every time! -Absolutely amazing flavors !!

Gaetano's is by far my go to dining place, especially during the pandemic, the lovely outdoor seating is so nice, the staff (Debbie was our server and she was great as usual) is amazing, the food is great. This past Friday we dined in side, it was recently remodeled and love what they did. Just love everything about Gaetano's:)

The lasagna was superb. The portion was more than enough to satisfy anyone, and leave room for a leftovers. It has been a while since I last dined at Gaetano's due to the Covid situation, but the food, service, and easy access was as it was a year or two ago. I will be returning!!

Yes I would definitely eat there again! The salad was a little heavy on the salt. The calamari was not crispy. I have always at previous visits had a great meal.

This was our first visit. We were going to be in the area and discovered Gaetano's online. The outdoor seating is socially distanced, and the servers wore masks. The appetizers (bruschetta and stuffed artichoke hearts) were a great way to start, and we all enjoyed the lunch specials. Oh, and it was happy hour; the bar has an interesting selection of cocktails. We received friendly and quite attentive service. We will definitely return.

Gaetanos has great food, great service and a wonderful atmosphere. My family has been enjoying this restaurant for many years! Went there recently as patio dining reopened and had a wonderful experience! Everything is always fresh and delicious and the ambiance is lovely. I can only say good things about Gaetano’s!
