    Went for lunch. Bridget was wonderful. She was so helpful and very kind and would check in on us and I observed her checking in with all her tables. Loved the meatball sandwich: it was really yummy that day. Kudos to the chef.

    Celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary with another couple. We had a lovely table on the patio and the weather was perfect. The bread was warm and crunchy and the calamari appetizer was very yummy. My barramundi was cooked perfectly and the green beans were crunchy and very tasty. Our dessert was a shared spumosité on the house and it is a must have. Delicious. The service was excellent.

    Gaetano's is our go to celebration place, and just for lunch or dinner any time. The food is always wonderful and the service personal and excellent. We like to sit on the patio where we feel like we are at a bistro in Italy or France.

    Great service. Sangiovese wine was tasty. Chicken marsala was bland and missing the marsala. However, the string beans and pasta were perfectly cooked. Tagliatelle & chianti short ribs could have used more tomato sauce. Pasta was perfectly cooked.

    We had a pleasant and enjoyable dining experience. Food was delicious and service was very good. The only disappointment was not being able to reserve a patio table, even several weeks ahead of time. The interior volume is loud and we bring an elderly person (91 yrs) . It was difficult for him to hear inside. Other than that, all good.

    ambiance is spelled with an 'an' rather than 'en'............ food is always served with good service and great taste...and plenty for two of us; we appreciate the refills on bread and cold drinks... and I applaud you for creating a 'back to school' supplies drive for children in need...thank you.

    Price is great and lunch combination is great but who took an order she was taking for very long time to bring a drinks. Even before the drinks, after we put the menu on the table took forever and we had to chase her to take our order. Since it was obviously lunch meeting with business attire we wanted her to keep eye on our table instead of let us just sit and hung out there for over hours.

    This has quickly become one of our fave Italian restaurants. Service is great, cocktails are great, but the food is outstanding. The main course I recommend is the Shrimp Mediterranean dish, excellent! The lasagne was also great, I was feeling like some good Italian comfort food and it delivered. Next time I’m in the mood for Italian, I’ll be back. Quick shout out to open table, you make it easy to find a table at good restaurants. Thank you.
