Gaetano's - Batavia
It’s fresh, delicious, inventive flavor combinations with classic Italian style. Don’t miss out on the calamari appetizer. It’s out of this world incredible.
Four of us dined at Gaetano's and each of us had a different entree, all of which were excellent. We were fortunate enough to have Mike as our server who helped make the evening memorable! We were seated upstairs which could be a problem for seniors, so book early and request downstairs seating. although I think that is mentioned on the web site. Definitely a dining recommendation!
A veggie, seafood lover and carnivore all found their meals exceeded expectations. Ambiance is quirky and cozy. Our waiter was attentive without hovering. Batavia has a real gem.
Unique Italian quisiene outstanding food, nice wine list, great service
We love Gaetano's. You can't beat the fresh pasta and wine selection. The service was excellent. The decor on the 2nd level is a little too gypsy-like for me, but the food and service definitely outweigh it. We will be back again and again.
When we go to a restaurant the #1 thing we value is of course the quality of the food, everything else is relatively secondary while service and ambiance is also important.
I had the Rigatoni sausage and goat cheese entree which was excellent. My wife had the Chicken Lemon with garlic mashed potatoes which she said was outstanding. The service was impeccable with three servers waiting on us.
Gaetano’s is a small intimate establishment where you can enjoy food and drink in a friendly warm environment.
The only downside comment I would have is we were seated on the second level and the stairs were a bit steep and challenging to go up/down for older folks, but once there the dining room is unique and intimate and the setting was very nice.
Our experience was again superb - food and service were top notch. We WILL be back for sure.
Pomegranate martini was excellent. Calamari steak appetizer different and very good.
The service was great, and the food was exceptional!
Interesting and delicious combinations on traditional dishes. Pricey for western suburbs, but very high quality service and product.
Our favorite Italian restaurant in the area. Never disappoints.
Incredibly fresh ingredients and a truly traditional vibe. A+
Very nice place with good Italian food. Large portions. Some traditional Italian dishes, but they specialize in unique new-wave dishes that are quite special. Great desserts.
Excellent food! First time here and we’ll be back.
Great food, great service, and intimate atmosphere. They do a fantastic job! We will be going back soon.
Absolutely loved this place!! The food was amazing, service was great, and the visuals were dreamy and cozy. This will definitely be my "new place" to dine.
Love Gaetano’s! Food and experience is excellent! 5 star service *
Absolutely great time as usual! Abby and Freddy are fantastic!!!
Great food as always and a wonderful server! We will definitely be back again and again.
The food here is consistently AMAZING. You can count on refreshingly different selections from the typical Italian restaurant. Our waiter was very helpful as we made our selections. I had a scallop dish that was perfection and my husband and son had a wild boar dish which was also outstanding. Even the wine was perfect and well priced.
Just about everything needed salt. The chickpea pasta for the bread, the risotto and the skirt steak were all desperately short of seasoning. The highlight of the meal was the Italian Gumbo--an outstanding soup.
Service was friendly and helpful. Tables were a little close, but not terrible. The restaurant is a highly eclectic space, especially the restroom sinks.
The quality of the food is amazing. The service and wait staff help make the experience wonderful.
We've been a few times and each visit we bring more people. A Batavia gem. I spread the word every chance I get.
My boyfriend and I did the grande chef tasting. He can't do dairy and I was curious how the chef would rise to the challenge of making an Italian dish without dairy. The chef exceeded expectations! The food was delicious and tasted so fresh! I would recommend doing the chef tasting if you are open to exploring new foods.
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.
