First time at Gaetanos. Excellent service, delicious food-very fresh, huge portions, unique choices. Ordered pizza, shrimp fra diavolo, chicken parm, kids ravioli. Great dessert choices, although we were too full to order. Cool atmosphere yet kid friendly. Will definitely return. Loved that we were able to make a reservation.

Great place to celebrate w/ family
Food was good, made to order. Service was good. Perfect for large groups. Wish that they had a round table instead of rectangle. Specials were very good...able to byo.

My second trip back to gaetanos. I ordered the Calamari Calabrese as an appetizer and my friend got the Marinated Baby Artichoke Oreganata as hers. Both apps were really nice sizes and both ended up being wrapped up and take home. We both ordered out our plates of lobster ravioli (dinner portion) with extra sauce. I really love that they made their pasta in house. It comes with about 6 ravioli's (I think) topped with shrimp. We also shared a pitcher of white sangria. Other then that its BYOB. Overall the food was in great really hit the spot. The sangria (white) was nice on such a hot day. And our waitress Nicole answered all of our questions with patience and was very welcoming and sweet as well. Can't wait to dine here again and soon!!!

Fantastic food & excellent service
From start to finish, the food rivaled what I've paid triple for in NYC. Appetizer was an an artichoke oreganato) and Cesar salad. Both were amazing, my dinner was pizza with broccoli rabe and fresh mozzarella and the shrimp special for my partner in crime, were amazing. Dessert was great and the coffee was fresh. The best thing I think, was the service. A pleasant young lady who looked to be about 17,but really 35, was very helpful and made sure we had enough time during the finish of each course. I will definitely go here again.
Great place to walk around, with a classic arcade right down the street. A very romantic evening for my wife and I.

We went with our friend who
We went with our friend who is gluten free because she could have a fine dining experience here. While my husband ate from the regular menu, I enjoyed the asparagus appetizer from the gluten free menu and then my entree from the regular menu. My gluten free friend said her entire meal was delicious. Kudos to our waiter who was up on the gluten free menu as well as the regular menu. The new California wines are very good.

Good meal with friends
Was there on a Wednesday night with friends and the restaurant was not crowded at all. Our waiter was very attentive, new the menu and made good suggestions. Food came out quickly and was very good. My friends and I enjoyed our apps and meal very much and I would definitely go back. Thank you.

Busy, bright, noisy dining
Busy, bright, noisy dining room. The food was terrific. Appetizers were a bit pricy, but very good. We would definitely go back if in the area.

Best Italian in the area
All pasta is freshly made on premises and the quality of the ingredients is top-notch. The food is as good as, if not better than, my great-grandmother's...and she was fresh off the boat. The service is always spot on: There when you need them to be, but never pushy or trying to rush your experience. All in all, Gaetano's stands among the best Italian restaurants in the region.

Gaetano's never disappoints. The food was amazingly delicious. The service was exceptional. We can't wait to go back.

Great food, friendly staff
Great neighborhood restaurant, ample seating even for a larger group. Staff is always courteous and knowledgeable, and their homemade pasta can't be beat. Neither can their seasoned olive oil (which you can purchase to bring home, like I did, because your family will not be able to get enough of it:) I also like that it is BYOB but they do have some wines available for purchase if you forget to bring your own- the best of both worlds!

Nice neighborhood surprise
Great food. No ambience. If you can get past the dull environment you will enjoy Gaetano.

Everything about the restaurant was great...the food, the service. It was just 2 of us and we had some large tables nearby, which increased the noise level. Other than that, great job!

Always a pleasure! Great BYOB!
The staff is very accommodating and the food is always great. It's such an easy part of Red Bank to park and then walk right onto Broad Street for an after dinner drink. The specials are very inventive and authentic and the regular menu never disappoints.
