    My wife and I found Gaetano's via Open Table. We wanted a fine dining Italian experience and were overwhelmed. From the professional greeting, the outstanding service from Nick , dialogue with Steve ,the décor, everything was outstanding. And then came the food. The best Focaccia we have every had, moist, the perfect texture and flavor. My wife had the braised lamb shank. It was the best she had ever had, and caused her to say she can't order it at our home town favorite after eating Gaetano's version. I had the Veal chop. Great seasoning, tender, moist, cooked to perfection. If you are looking for a great meal, great service and a welcoming environment, look no further.

    The service was great.....right from the minute you get there. We had the bruschetta to start with which was perfect...right amount of garlic and basil. I had the Osso bucco and my wife had the pistachio crusted Mahi mahi. Both were very good. Unfortunately we did not have any room for dessert. All in all, a very good experience.

    Have eaten in many Italian restaurants in the US and Italy. Some of the dishes here are better than any I've had elsewhere - and the service is top notch. It is always my go to restaurant for out of town guests and it becomes their favorite. Of all the places in Vegas I have friends that always insist on a meal out here when they come.

    Love that place. Go there w/family on my birthday. Had the Lobster Risotto. Absolutely Fantastic!!! The only thing I found curious was why they gave me a nutcracker when the piece of lobster shell on my place was already cut in half and empty. Kinda strange if you ask me. Other than that, all good.

    We had a 70th birthday this visit. The ambiance is just amazing, cozy lighting, quiet and romantic or just classy for a family or group. I had the eggplant rolatini it was perfect, a little smaller portion than everyone else though. My husband had the gorgonzola gnocchi and it was really delicious and a huge portion. Another friend had the special of the day trout of all things but he said he had never had fish cooked so well before he ate every bite. The only thing I was not overly impressed with were the fried artichokes. They were just not up to par with the fanciness of the place. They could have used a hint of lemon tang and maybe a little less frying for a lighter shell and a gourmet drizzle of some sort for appearance.

    We love this restaurant, the food is outstanding. Every time I have been to this restaurant, you are treated like you are the only table in the restaurant, professional, and so classy. There are so many specials and they are explained in detail that you don't even have to look at the menu. Every meal was delicious and the presentation is unbelievable. I cannot say enough about this place. We had a large party of 11 but for those of you that want a romantic dinner, this is definitely the place.

    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.

    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!

    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!
