When my breakfast skillet came out with no potatoes I asked our server if it was supposed to have potatoes in it (most skillets do). She said yes and said she would grab me some. Comes back with a bowl of potatoes and says “May I?”, grabs my fork and starts digging through my food looking for the potatoes that weren’t there remarking “the chef swore he put them in here but you’re right there aren’t any!”. I was shocked she had the audacity to dig through my food as if I were lying about the potatoes. The food was horrible anyways.

Food with The Family in an eccentricly authentic piece of local history? Absolutely! Comforting cuisine, superb service, and a panorama of jokes straight from The Godfather over tiramisu and a great cappuccino? You got it! Worried about getting whacked? The door's bullet proof, friend. Leave the gun, take the cannoli, and bring a friend. Live a little.

The food was outstanding and I can't wait to go back. Wish it wasn't as loud as it was or crowded.

This place was recommended by a trusted friend. This place did not disappoint, as the food was great tasting at a decent price, not bad for a date. Good location with original taste that stuck to tradition. Most of all, the girlfriend loved it and that's what matters most at the end of the day.

Time and time again Gaetano's delivers! The service has always been great and the food reminds me of my east coast childhood. Best Italian in the state hands down!!

Absolutely delicious Italian. We started with the complimentary water and bread. Then we got the fried raviolis with marinara sauce that were delicious. Then we got lasagna and chicken parmesan. The lasagna was the best lasagna I've ever had. We did not have room for dessert unfortunately but I would definitely go back.

The history behind Gaetano’s is almost as great as the food. Try the Pesto Pollo but asked for breaded chicken. Sooooo delicious. Birthday celebration? Enjoy your free Tiramasu. Wonderful ambiance, great wait staff and awesome drink menu too!!

Food took too much long to arrive, was mediocre and served barely warm. The server was very pleasant, but forgot the salad, served it with the meal after being reminded, said she would take it off the bill and then did not. There is more, but I choose not to elaborate.
