Gaetano's - Batavia
Not quite as good as usual, but it's a high bar! Restaurant madness week.
Food / Service Excellent! Always a enjoyable experience . Worth dining in or out.
Everything about our experience was top notch. The food was superb and the service was great. Unfortunately, our group was using Batavia Restaurant Madness week to try this restaurant, only to be informed by our waiter that the restaurant, while listed with all the other participating restaurants, wasn't offering the standard 20% off. Instead, they were offering a chef's choice tasting menu for a reduced price of $60 per person. He pointed out to us that down in the corner of the Restaurant Madness coupon, in tiny little print that I couldn't even read, this was so stated, with an asterisk or some kind of marking linking that unreadable information back to the restaurant listing elsewhere on the coupon. We thought this was extremely misleading and like a bait and switch scheme. It left me with a bad feeling about a restaurant that I would otherwise feel nothing but good about.
Excellent food and wait staff . Our waiter could not have been more attentive and helpful.
Dined at Gaetano's for our anniversary. Beyond exceptional food and drinks. Will definitely be back.
Expensive, but the quality of the food and outstanding service make the trip worthwhile.
Absolutely amazing! Both the food and service were exceptional. Highly recommend.
Gaetano's has a wonderful atmosphere. The staff was extremely polite and accommodating. The food was remarkable.
Freddie our server was excellent! Enjoyed his recommendations.
High quality food, great service and a hidden gem in Batavia. They could be on Randolph street in Chicago and double their prices and it would still be a good value.
Always consistent. Sully did a nice job of explaining the courses and making sure we were enjoying our meal.
I been going here for two years now it’s consistent love their meals
One of our favorites in the area for a date night spot! We never had a bad meal whenever we are here! The food is always spectacular and the service is always great! We were recently there over the Valentine's weekend and the manager had a great sense of humor and also made sure every table received personalized attention! Looking forward to returning again!
Service was great, and the pasta entrées and tiramisu were delicious. The tables in the main dining area are very close together.
Great table, excellent food, and very good service!
Valentines Day dinner for my wife and me. We are upstairs. First sat at bar, then table. Bartender and wait staff were exceptional.
The foods is always excellent- a good combination of favorite dishes and interesting new ones. The piccolo tasting menu is a generous amount of food and the wine pairing that we went with was perfectly matched to each course. Happy we live close by so we can go often
Valentine’s Day Dinner, three years in a row. Always a great choice.
Great server!!!! Cool place. That’s all I have to say about that
Amazing food amazing service ! Worth every penny !
The quality of the food was wonderful and unique from the other Italian restaurants in the western suburbs. Freddy, our server could not have done a better job and is a credit to Gaetanos.
The food and experience was wonderful! We all had a fabulous meal and enjoyed the night! Will be going back again!
Always amazing food and service. The patio is extremely nice to sit at in the summer.
We always love this place. It is romantic and the food is outstanding!
Terrible service. Terrible food. Food took over an hour, and our server didn’t check on us once to update us to let us know when our food was coming, maybe because we weren’t drinking any booze??? So disappointed. Will not return here any time soon.
We have been here many times, and have yet to receive an average meal or poor service. The food, service and atmosphere is always outstanding.
Great food and atmosphere!
We had a great date night to a new place with fantastic food and a great atmosphere. Our waiter was helpful, enthusiastic and new the food inside and out. We will be coming back for more adventures into the cuisine.
Seated promptly, of course it was a miserable snowy, winter night. Only another party of 4when we arrived! Ordered mussels as an appetizer. Plump juicy delicious broth and bread. Best ever! We have been here so many times and never had a bad experience. Service excellent. Drinks just the way we like them. I had a negroni and my husband had the bourbon manhattan. Both up and excellent. I ordered the rib eye medium rare served with 3 delicious side sauces. Husband had pasta, short rigatoni with shell fish in a semi spicy red sauce. He loved it. Usually get the scallops oven roasted with cocoa powder but expanded this time and so glad I did. The rib eye was fantastic. Took a lot home for tomorrow, and got extra bread too. Everything was excellent as usual. This is a phenomenal restaurant with great food service staff and excellent food. Don’t pass this place up. If we could give it 20 stars we would!you won’t regret it. If Gaetano’s was in the city you would have to make your reservation weeks in advance. Love, love, love this restaurant!
When I made the reservation I added that it was a birthday celebration and our waitress never did anything about it or even said happy birthday..she was unpleasant and seemed annoyed. We’ve never had a service like that in the past.
Server was inconsistent at best and rude at worst. Barely spoke to us all night. I told them we had two birthdays in our group and there was never a mention of it by staff. Third time we have been here and by far the worst experience. Not sure if we will be back. Too bad such a cool place
Everything was lovely. We sat upstairs and the ambiance was perfect. We both got the 3 course tasting menu, everything was outstanding.
The service is attentive without being obtrusive. The food is delicious, everything is made to order. It is great for a special occasion.
Great place with a calm atmosphere and quality dishes
We did the tasting menu and were more than satisfied with everything that we got and even enjoyed some things we may have never tried otherwise.
Very enjoyable. We’d definitely go back and recommend this.
It was my birthday and to my surprise I received a small delicious dessert.
I wasn’t thrilled with how tight the tables were. We sat right next to the door. Our server was superb. Do not order that ice cream with the vinegar.
Absolutely the best time tonight.
The steak, the on point service and the dynamic sounds of the Scott Tipping Trio. Everyone dancing.Wow!
Service upstairs very poor. Had salmon which had fishy flavor
