Coming from New York , it’s hard to find a good Italian meal in the South Bay. Gaetanos is the closest I have come so far. Great food , great wait staff. Highly recommend :)

My husband love eating at Gaetanos! Atmosphere, food and professional hospitality is the reason we made this restaurant our traditional “date night” and special occasion choice. We even enjoy “Family Night”!

Took too long to get the check. I have no idea why.
When the customer is through just bring the check.
Or set up mobile pay.

I’ve been here several times but this last time wasn’t up to par, the seafood risotto was over cooked, served barely warm and not good. The service was slow . It was disappointing.

We went on Family night- 4 courses for 4 people $55-60 plus to and tax. The quality of the food, ambience, and service were excellent. It was a very relaxing ambience outside. Our family loves to go to Gaetanos. The salmon and the mostachelli were excellent! Spy mono ice cream is also so refreshing for dessert.

Greets: We were greeted immediately and sat at our table.

Beats: I don't recall the music, but it was loud in the restaurant. A lot of people were celebrating the holidays so there were many conversations.

Eats: We enjoyed glassesof wine, the stuffed artichokes and calamari. We had table bread too. Our main courses were delicious. Two people ordered the short rib pasta, one scallop dish, and a pasta dish.

Treats: We were too full for dessert. There were several that I wanted to try, but it can be next time.

Cheats: Park by Burke Williams. The restaurant is located below. There is outdoor seating, but it was full. The wine shop next door used to not care a corkage fee. I am not sure about now. There is a tasting menu on Thursday nights.

Good food at reasonable prices. Staff is friendly and knows the menu well. Unassuming wine list but you find a bottle that pairs well with your meal. For the price sensitive go for lunch where the combination meals are a great deal.

This is a go-to place when we are in the area. The service is always good--the food is good-and we always walk away satisfied. This last time the noise level was VERY annoying and we have decided that if the weather is good that next time we will go outside. Otherwise would highly recommend. Prices are very good too.

Love Gaetano Restaurant and it's our local favorite Italian restaurant. We come here at least 1-2 times a month. They have specials every night of the week, like wine night, family night, etc. Food is amazing and very authentic.

It was the best lasagna I've had in years. The noodles were amazing and the portion so large I had half for lunch the following day. Service was great, too, even though we were late and it was near closing time.
