Diner Reviews
  • "We LOVE Gaetano's because it is the perfect combination of wonderful service...terrific food...constantly changing specials of high quality...and consistent performance of excellence. It's a real "go to" place for us -- especially when Nicholas is our server."

  • "Have been here so often and every time the food is outstanding - service is great. This is by far my favorite restaurant in Henderson!"

  • "Gaetano's is a must for us each trip to Las Vegas. Perfectly prepared food with recipes we know are chef's. From classic fare to special events to evening specific cuisine, we have enjoyed each visit. Coaching on wine has been spot on every time. Bravo to the team that deliver excellence.

  • "Prosciutto-wrapped figs stuffed with goat cheese were tasty but ice cold; serving them at room temperature would have allowed the flavors to really shine. Grilled portobella mushroom caps with smoked mozzarella were passable, but the 'garlic and herb sauce.' was more like a brown gravy. We both ordered grilled venison loin with blueberry-port reduction and shiitake mushroom risotto as our entree. The meat was cooked to perfection, but was sliced with the grain instead of against it, resulting in stringy meat. There was very little reduction sauce on the plate. The shiitake mushroom risotto was terrific; I hope this item stays on the menu. Our first two meals were very good. We'll try one more time in case the kitchen had an off night."

  • "We had my birthday dinner here on Tuesday night. The restaurant was beautiful, the waiter Angel was fine but the feel was very snobbish and not inviting at all! I am an avid Open Table participant and I can tell you that I was saddened and disappointed with my experience at Gaetano's! My family said...never again. You would think that a restaurant that is 4/5's empty at prime time dinner hours would be going out of its way to accommodate its guests, but no...we felt very much like they were doing us a favor. The food was very much like you would expect at the Bellagio, cost-wise too. Unfortunately, it was not flavorful and ultimately added to the blah experience. I will say the bread which we begged for was very good!"

  • "We had been hearing about this restaurant for years, and couldn't wait to experience it for ourselves. On a very positive note, the food, including the bread (which can be hit or miss or nonexistent in this town!)...delicious. I am not a lover of most Italian marinara sauce in restaurants, but this was excellent. The service was...okay. When we didn't order bar drinks, or multiple courses, the waiter kind of forgot about us. Yes, the busboys were super attentive, but we never saw the waiter after he took our initial order. He made a comment about dessert at that time, but never came back to check out our satisfaction, or even to tempt us with more. Also, pricey. You can do a lot better at other places with comparable ambiance and food..."

  • "The best food in Henderson, maybe even Vegas. My only complaint is if u bring kids, they stick u in the back, and service is not as good. Without kids, service is great. I didn't like the fact that they walked us with our kids thru the bar to get to the back of the restaurant. It's almost like they don't want anyone to see kids in the place. They have linen tablecloths but it is fine to wear shorts and even tho they ask u if u have a reservation, there is always plenty of room. This is a mom and pop place and the father has been very rude to us a couple of times. But the sons who work there are very nice and for the most part they keep him under control. In short, the food is so worth the trip if you can handle a couple of kinks."

  • "Great Italian restaurant with very professional servers and delectible food. The thing that stood out most was the service. We were in and out in about 45 minutes. Probably the fastest service I have ever had in a restaurant, period."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The acid test of any restaurant is whether you are as pleased with it the second time you dine there. Gaetano's passes with flying colors. From the greeting (by name) from the owner through appetizer, entrees, digestifs, and coffee and desserts, the dinner was eminently enjoyable. We had the seafood salad with octopus and calamari, papardelle with steak tips and vtella alla Sorrentina entrees, Vin Santo digestifs, and tartufo with capuccinos. Everything was delectable, and capably served by our amiable server Angelo. We will be back!"

  • "What a great Italian restaurant. From the atmosphere, to the courteous staff, to the excellent dishes, we were satisfied all around. We felt very welcome, and left extremely satisfied. Every single dish we tried was outstanding and left your mouth watering for more..."

  • "Have really enjoyed the 3 times we have eaten at this restaurant. It is a great Locals restaurant in Henderson's west side. The food is always very tasty and well prepared. Waiters are great and very knowledgeable of the items on the menu including the daily specials. Would definitely recommend this establishment."

  • "The food here is delicious and the service is outstanding. The atmosphere is like an old style gracious Italian restaurant. I've been back three times and will continue to come here. My only complaint is that they only carry higher end wines and I wish there was a greater range. A lovely place for a quiet dinner."

  • "We love dining out and consider our meals events. Where do we go for a high quality Italian meal in the Anthem area? Gaetano's! This family run Italian restaurant never disappoints. Over the past eleven years we have tried MANY different entrees. Its a place where you can feel free to try something new and not be disappointed. I am a real fan of Gaetano's fish [this time I had the Sea Bass special] while my wife loves the veal chop. The food is always well prepared with presentations that rival the strip restaurants. The wine selection is diverse and if you aren't sure what wine to chose you can rely on Gaetano's choice!"

  • "We frequent Gaetano's often and we've never had a bad meal, ever. The staff is very courteous, helpful, knowlegable & friendly. Their Chilean Sea Bass is the BEST in town bar none. We'll be back again & again. Stan & Cathie"

  • "This was our first time at Gaetano's and it won't be our last. I had the trout on their special served with angel hair pasta and it was delicious! The trout was really fresh and the pasta was wonderful too. My husband had the Veal Parmigiana with spaghetti and he loved it! Very friendly owner and staff! We can't wait to go back."

  • "We eat at Gaetano's several times a year and we are never disappointed! It is a very quiet place so you can enjoy your meal and conversation. In the three years we have been going to Gaetano's, we have never had a bad experience. You never feel rushed so you can just relax, enjoy a good bottle of wine and an excellent meal no matter what you pick from the menu. Gaetano himself will usually come by and visit with you at your table! We enjoy going to Gaetano's!"

  • "Gaetano's is a wonderful, neighborhood dining experience with great choices in menu items. The variations of choices are amazing with wonderful nightly specials. The service is impeccable. We had the duck, butternut squash ravioli, shrimp franchaise and several of the pasta dishes. All were delicious! I would recommend this Italian place to all of my friends. You can find discount coupons locally as well. The specials were pricey."

  • "Gaetano's is one of our favorites, and easily one of the better Italian restaurants in the city. The decor is tasteful, the specials are creative, and the Ravioli is incredible. The owner makes a point to check on you, and sincerely is interested in your dining experience. Our kids love the calamari, and the salads are fresh and sizeable. My wife has the Risotto with asparagus. Just great. can't say enough about Mr. Palmeri's restaurant. We will be back many times to come."

  • "Having grown up in NYC, I have had the pleasure of experiencing very good Italian food. Gaetano's comes the closest to the tastes of Italian food offered here in the U.S. at this price point. We had arancini (rice balls made with risotto and bolognese sauce) and fried zucchini blossoms filled with goat cheese. Both were delicious and set our palates up for the branzino (Mediterranean sea bass) and calamari steak Milanese entrees. The owner stopped by to see how we were enjoying our meal and we shared some stories of Italian food as offered in the States. We will be back!"

  • "The food was outstanding and served by a wait staff that really seems to care about the customer. We enjoyed the calamari appetizer followed by a dinner of salmon that was fresh as can be. Marvelous treat for the taste buds served in an atmosphere that was a feast for the eyes with all the beautiful artwork on the walls. Wonderful martinis, too. The owner stopped by the table to make sure we were all enjoying ourselves and liked our menu choices."

  • "Everthing about this restauraunt is first class but at a price less than similar places on the strip. The owner is personally involved- seats guests as they arrive and stops at the table to check on things. There is an extensive menu and also a number of weekly specials which included my entree of a large filet of trout. Our salads were excellent and not reduced in size as many places are currently doing. The staff is well trained and efficient. The ambience is outstanding with many paintings on the wall and soft relaxing background music which does not interfere with conversation. In a number of visits we have never had a bad meal there. If you do not live nearby it is worth the drive- an excellent experience. "

The service was perfectly timed. The wine pours were generous and refills abundant. Well done. It is always a pleasure to dine with Gaetano, his son, the whole team there caring for all in attendance with such grace and professionalism. Bravo! "

I have been eating here since they opened, they continue to do a great job and the food is fantastic. They have a great menu with a variety of wonderful items to choice from, plus daily specials that are so good you might not open the menu. Everything is always flavorful and cooked to perfection. "

  • "The food was awesome. I enjoyed the service and the attention the staff provided. the one and only thing I felt was really really bad were the wine prices. The wine was 3x retail. What made matters worse, was that the wine list was not deep in Italian wines at all. no more than three of any varietal and no wine older than a 2008. That was a major disappointment and to top it all off, corkage is $25. Just no way to enjoy a great meal with wine here. Very un-Italian."
