We arrived at 6:30 for our reservation. There wasn’t a table available for us yet so we did have to wait for a little while. It was our first time at this restaurant and although the food was good and the waitress was wonderful; the restaurant itself was very small. I felt that if I put my hand out I would have been able to touch the person at the table next to me. Unfortunately that made me feel a bit uncomfortable. Not because of COVID-19 but because it was just too small. I felt like I was dining with the people next to us.

Was our first time. Was not disappointed. The service and food was excellent. Everything from the Garlic bread with Marinara for dipping, Homemade Escarole soup, fresh salad and our entree of Colossal Shrimp stuffed with Jumbo Lump Crab, just perfect. And you can get drinks.
Can’t wait to return.

Great neighborhood gem. Overwhelming variety of dishes. Our server forgot our appetizer but was sincerely upset. It was just as well. The portions of our entres (Crab with garlic white wine, and tortollini alfredo with crab) were so large we couldn't finish it. We will definitely return to Gaspares.

I almost always get the Veal Milanese, I have never been disappointed, it’s so amazingly delicious! The capellini with garlic and oil is so special, you will dream about it. However, I can’t recommend the fra diablo, they are using “habanero pepper” (huh?), it’s so incredibly hot, its inedible, not enjoyable. I recommend everything else on the menu!

Valentine’s Day dinner with my wife. Both of us love the ambience of Gaspare’s and the attentiveness of the staff. It is a favorite of ours for date nights as well. A great “getaway” for just the two of us.

Our evening to have dinner with Caitlyn. Our server for the past three times we have enjoyed this locally kept secret. The wife and I decided to split the Veal Franchais and our friends split the Veal Oscar. The Chef forgot to share so Caitlyn cut the veal. Both couples' ages are restricting the volume of food we get at Gaspare's. The gentlement ordered the Clams with a little bit of red and a little bit of white sauce - a unique taste. My wife and I had the chicken escarole and the other couple had their dinner salads. Caitlyn mixed four martinis for us and they were refreshing. George and I had a glass of Pinoit Noir and Sig.Blanc - their house wines are not only reasonable but they taste good too. Dessert was Teramsu for three of us with Ellie having the three brownie combination. It was tough leaving our choice of restaurant. Good night Caitlyn - you are the best!

Gaspare's did it again.....First, Kaitlyn mixed two great Martinis - a White Cosmo and a Lemon Drop. Then we got the best soup and salad in the region. We then feasted on the Veal Franchais and the Veal Parm - both with linguini. No dessert - too full - couldn't finish the meal; took some of both veal dishes home for tomorrow's lunch. Another wonderful evening at Gaspare's.....Happy Holidays!

We had parmigiana crusted chicken with side of pasta. The food was very good as usual. My only complaint was that early bird ends at five now and we had no way of knowing that. My message to Gaspare is that cutting the amount of food and still having early bird is probably financially equal to serving such large portions that you have to take at least half home.
Our waitress was wonderful and the service excellent. Always love going there.

It’s just a wonderful place to have dinner. Our waitress made the best Happy Hour Martini for each of us. Two of us had a veal dish with different side orders of pasta and one of our party had the stuffed Flounder. The food was cooked to perfection and it certainly is one of the best dinner spots in all of Southern Jersey. If you want great drinks, fabulous entries and fun people to wait on you, then visit Gaspares.
