Gaetano's, An Italian Gem....
Gaetano's has become our favorite restaurant. I shopped by there two years ago to pick up a Gift Card for a friend who loves the place and about a week after I gave to card away, we decided to have dinner there and, as they say, it is history. We love the monthly regional dinners and look forward to chatting with Vince and his family while we are there. They are beautiful people and treat us as if we were family.

First time patron
This was our first time eating at Gaetano's. We went on a Saturday night. It was very busy, but we had made a reservation so our table was waiting for us when we arrived. We each ordered a different meal and shared among the 3 of us. Everything was very tasty and well prepared. We will definitely return. Plan to try the pizza one day for lunch.

Very good service! Food delivered in reasonable amount of time. Food was very good to excellent. Decor was nice. Table for two was a little small. Will definitely go back. Had bruschetta , butternut squash ravioli and lasagna. All were very good. Would order them again. We were celebrating our birthdays and they went out of our way to make us feel special.

Change in Atmosphere
We truly enjoyed our dinner at Gaetano's. If it's a warm evening, you may dine outside; if not, nice ambiance inside. Food is always great.

Always a treat!
We visit Gaetano's often and are never disappointed! They serve Italian standards and also have very unique specials. I was surprised on Cinco de Mayo when they offered up a carnitas lasagna! Three people at our table ordered it and all said it was great! They also have some interesting mixed drinks---sangria's, mojitos, martinis....all yummy!

Everyone in our p arty of 5 found their meal to be delicious. The star rating for ambience results from the location of the restaurant which has a strip mall feel.

pasta and more
Local south Torrance gem. Family run with recipes passed down through generations.Mama Dot's meatballs are fantastic with warm bread and olive oil. Good wine selection and charming energetic staff.

Gaetano's is a lovely neighborhood Italian restaurant that serves delicious food at reasonable prices. My husband and I last dined here during LA Restaurant Week & had wonderful 3-course dinners for very little money (can't remember exact price).
Staff is friendly and efficient. Ambience is also warm and inviting.

Great Food & Conversation
Great food in an atmosphere where we could actually have a conversation unlike many of today's so-called "trendy restaruants."

Love this restaurant
I take my girlfriend to this restaurant on special occasions. We order the tasting menu, and 9 times out of 10 we order the butternut squash ravioli. The service is great here, I have yet to be disappointed. The menu is full of wonderful food and the prices are extremely reasonable for the outstanding quality.

We're so happy to have discovered Gaetano's! We love the " classic" Italian restaurant atmosphere with just the right music (Some Sinatra, of course).
I had a perfect eggplant parmigiana! NOT drowning in sauce. Even the bread is super. (We think its from Giuliano's.)
Gaetano's is a bit of a drive for us, but so worth it. A new favorite restaurant!

Great Evening at Gaetano's
This one is to remember. I had the OSSO BUCCO. This is my test item on any menu. If you can make a great OSSO BUCCO you have a great restaurant. This dish has to be done right with lots of care and seasoned to perfection. . OB takes 4 hours or more to get to perfection. This one was perfect. Congratulations Gaetano !

Gaetano's is a hidden gem. Their food is outstanding! We have eaten there probable 10 times in the past year. I'm not real adventurous when it come to eating but there isn't a meal on the menu that I wouldn't order. They have some great specials. They do get crowded so I would recommend reservations.

Lovely for lunch
I took my colleague out for lunch to say thank you. We sat outside as the weather was lovely and although the inside was quite crowded, no one was sitting outside. We exchanged the chairs from the next table as the ones we were sitting in were too low and tipped back too much! We only had half sandwich and salad, which was good. My colleague ordered the special sandwich. Food was all fine and just enough. We would have like the wait staff to look after us a small amount more, but we were the only ones outside, so thought that was the reason. All in all, a lovely lunch where we felt free to stay and chat for hours with no pressure.

We were here last weekend and liked it so much we returned to celebrate a friends birthday. When I made the reservations I indicated that we were there for a birthday. There was no acknowledgement of it at all. The food was great but the service could use a bit more attention.

Went to restaurant for a birthday
Went to restaurant for a birthday dinner, made reservation on internet and it was very easy. Once we arrived they gave us GREAT service and the food was wonderful. My friends had not been before and all said they would be returning.

Best Italian food around
This is by far the best Italian food in our area. Reasonable priced, good portions with great taste.

Very good dining experience.
Very good dining experience. I was just a little supprised that the Linguini pescatore, when rice was substituted for pasta,, no longer had clams, mussels, or other seafood, but only scallops.

my fav italian
Excellent food as usual. Great for girls get together and romantic atmosphere. I love the variety in the menu and that its part of Guilianos as I have been going there since 1959 when I first moved out from Massachusetts

My husband had worked for
My husband had worked for the Giulliano family for many years; the quality and taste of their foods has always been top notch. Oddly, for as long as they have been across from the Rolling Hills Plaza, my husband and I had never eaten at Gaetano's....until two Sunday's ago on and for our wedding anniversary. We made the right choice. The food and service was wonderful, the best. We will be back!
