    We enjoyed a delightful lunch in Gaetano’s outdoor patio. The food was delicious and our service was excellent. The patio area is very pleasant with just the right amount of breeze.

    Very nice patio, and very nice dining room. Most dishes are quite good, though some need just a little extra... of their sauce, or their dressing, or whatever special ingredient applies. And if you ask, they'll bring it.

    We went early on Father's Day...11:45pm. The outside patio was very comfortable temperature wise and there were only a few tables seated. The waiter was especially good, friendly and on top of things. He recommended some delicious cocktails which we really enjoyed. We ordered salads that were fresh, tasty without too much dressing.

    Last evening I ate at Gaetano's restaurant. I ordered the chicken marsala, a dish I have enjoyed at various restaurants over the last forty years. Unfortunately Gaetano's version of this Italian classic was awful and bordered on the inedible. The primary problem was that the rubbery chicken and the accompanying pasta and mushrooms were swimming in a tasteless, viscous liquid which appeared to consist primarily of olive oil. After I had taken a few bites, the waiter came by and asked if there was anything we needed; I dine out quite frequently, and I cannot remember ever vigorously complaining about the food, but on this occasion I told the waiter that the chicken marsala was tasteless and disappointing. The waiter then brought the manager to our table, and he asked if I wanted to order something different, and after looking at the menu I ordered a pizza, which unfortunately was also tasteless and lousy - after eating one slice of pizza, I decided that I had had enough. On the other hand the spumoni ice cream was good. Since there are a number of good Italian restaurants in this area (e.g., Georgio's) it will be a very, very long time before I dine at Gaetano's again.
